Directions

Using this medicine (adults, elderly and children over 2 years of age) :-

  • Do not apply the cream on eczema, larger areas of skin, cut, grazed, badly broken or sunburnt skin.
  • Apply the cream two to three times a day, for up to three days.
  • For best results use as soon as possible after the bite or sting.
  • Repeated use of the cream for periods longer than a few days is not recommended.
  • If your symptoms worsen or do not improve after 3 days talk to your doctor or pharmacist.
  • If you feel the effect of your medicine is too weak or too strong, do not change the dose yourself, but ask your doctor or pharmacist.
If you use more Anthisan Cream than you should or it is accidentally swallowed, seek immediate medical attention particularly in young children. Tell a doctor or go to a hospital casualty department straight away. Take the medicine pack with you. This is so the doctor knows what you or the child has taken.
