Protopic 0.1%

Postby Matty1990 on Sun Apr 15, 2018 8:19 pm

Hi all, just wondering what people’s experiences are with protopic 0.1% i was prescribed it by the dermatologist a year or 2 back but hardly used it because it caused me to itch uncontrollably. That last couple of weeks ive started using it again and ‘powered through’ the itch and it stopped after a couple of days and my eczema has cleard up completely :D The downside I’ve found is if i drink alcohol (even half a pint) my face goes bright red and feels like it’s going to pop. It only lasts for about 20 mins to half an hour. Has this happened to anyone else? Thanks in advance for any replies

Protopic and alcohol don't mix..
While you are using PROTOPIC, drinking alcohol may cause the skin or face to become flushed or red
and feel hot.

Maybe cut down on alcohol till the skin recovered? Take care!
