Compounding for Dermatology

Compounded topical medications are applied to the skin. Pharmacists make these medications according to a doctor’s prescription, suitable for a patient’s specific needs. These medications are usually made by combining different ingredients in the desired formulation, such as creams, gels, or ointments. They allow for a more personalised treatment approach and can be particularly beneficial for patients with allergies or sensitivities to certain ingredients found in standard medications or if commercial products are unavailable. They also treat various skin conditions, such as eczema, psoriasis, sun damage and rosacea.

Benefits of using compounded topical medications

Using compounded topical medications can offer several benefits. Firstly, they can be personalised to meet each patient’s specific needs, ensuring the correct dosage, ingredients, and formulation. This can lead to improved treatment outcomes and patient satisfaction. Additionally, compounded topical medications can provide alternative options for patients with allergies or sensitivities to commercially available medications.

Choosing a reputable compounding pharmacy is crucial to ensure the quality and reliability of compounded topical medications. Look for one that follows strict quality control standards and employs trained and experienced compounding pharmacists. Compounded medicines have shorter expiration dates than manufactured products and may have storage requirements.

Additionally, ask about the source of the ingredients used and check if they are sourced through TGA-approved suppliers. It is also essential to discuss any concerns or doubts with your healthcare provider to ensure the medication is appropriate for your condition and dosage requirements. Taking these precautions can help you trust and rely on compounded topical medications for your needs.
