Oxolinic ointment

This good old remedy for the prevention and treatment of acute respiratory viral infections has been known since Soviet times. They were used by our grandparents, mothers and fathers, and they recommend oxolinic ointment of the doctor now.

Let’s see why it is so widespread in our country and from what age oxolinum ointment can be applied.

Pharmacies sell two types of oxolinic ointment – 0.25% and 3%. The first is intended for the treatment and prevention of rhinitis, flu, ARVI.

The second is for the treatment of stomatitis, herpes, other skin and eye viral diseases.
The antiviral properties of oxolinic ointment received thanks to the active substance oxolin. Entering into interaction with the acids that make up the virus, oxolin blocks their action, and the virus dies.

Apply the ointment can only be externally. Applied with a thin layer to the edges of the nostrils, it becomes an effective obstacle in the way of viruses that enter the body when inhaling through the nose.

Often the question arises: “Oxolinic ointment is indicated for children from what age?” Meanwhile, the instructions for the drug directly indicate that oxolinic ointment is not for babies: among the contraindications to the use is indicated the age of 2 years. However, doctors sometimes say that oxolinic ointment for newborns is completely safe.

Why it happens?

For all the time of application of oxolinic ointment, there have been no studies on its effects on the body of newborns and children under 2 years of age. This means that by using it, you act at your own risk.

If you trust your pediatrician, you can use this medication as prescribed by your doctor. However, it must be borne in mind that the ointment may cause a burn of the delicate mucous membrane or dry it.

To avoid this, it is usually recommended to mix oksolinki with vaseline or with baby cream in a 1: 1 ratio. Another undesirable effect of this remedy is an allergic reaction in case of intolerance of one or another substance entering into its composition.

So listen to the opinion of the doctor and carefully read the instructions for the drug.

All of the above applies to the use of oxolinic ointment during pregnancy. No one has put experiments on future mothers and will not bet. Therefore, the instructions among the contraindications also indicated pregnancy and breastfeeding.

And although many believe that oxoline is practically not absorbed and does not penetrate into breast milk, you need to pay attention to the word “practically.” If doctors recommend oxolinic ointment to lactating or expectant mothers, then it is only on the basis of their personal experience and patient observation experience.

In any case, to recommend drugs for the prevention and treatment of SARS should always be a therapist or gynecologist who has a pregnant woman. After hearing the opinion of a physician, carefully read the instructions and then decide: who do you trust more – the manufacturer, which is reinsured, or your doctor?

Recall that applying oxolinic ointment, the future or nursing mother acts at your own risk.

Oxolinic ointment is eliminated from the body completely during the day, does not accumulate and does not have a general effect on the body. That is why it is safely recommended for children over 2 years old.

The instructions for use indicate that oxolinic ointment should be applied to each nostril 2-3 times a day. The course of treatment for rhinitis – 3-4 days.

During the epidemic period, it is better to apply oxolinic ointment for the prevention of colds to each nostril 2 times a day. It is usually recommended to do this manipulation for 20-25 days. During this time, the outbreak of acute respiratory viral infections, as a rule, is declining, and after that the risk of getting sick decreases.

If the family already has a cold, oxolink should be applied more often – 3-4 times a day. Sometimes the agent may stain the skin blue, but this is easily fixed.

And, of course, the doctor should recommend oxolinic ointment. He must indicate the concentration of the drug.

No matter how harmless this tool may seem, be sure to consult your doctor.
