One jar or tube of FLAMAZINE should be reserved for one person. If you are using tubes, discard the product 7 days after opening. FLAMAZINE should be applied by means of a sterile spatula or by hand, covered with a sterile glove, in a layer approximately 3-5 mm thick. One application at least every 24 hours is normally sufficient but the number of times a day to apply the cream will depend on your own individual needs. Where necessary reapply FLAMAZINE to any area where it has been removed during activity.
Treatment is continued until healing is progressing satisfactorily or the burn site is ready for skin grafting. Your doctor or pharmacist will tell you how long to keep applying FLAMAZINE cream.
Do not use FLAMAZINE if you have an allergy to: FLAMAZINE or any medicine within the Sulfonamide group or any of the ingredients in FLAMAZINE.
Do not give FLAMAZINE to premature infants or newborn infants in the first months of life. Sulfonamides may cause a life-threatening condition known as “kernicterus” (jaundice of the brain) in babies during the first months of life by interfering with normal metabolism.
FLAMAZINE should not be used during the last month of pregnancy. Your doctor will discuss the risks and benefits of using FLAMAZINE when pregnant.
