General Information on DermaCool
DermaCool is an astringent, antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory, and alcohol-free cooling spray indicated for veterinary use. It is specifically prescribed to provide relief from moist skin lesions, localized itching and inflammation. DermaCool can be used for horses, dogs and cats of any age.
Hydrocortisone, the main active ingredient in the medication, belongs to a family of drugs known as anti-inflammatory therapeutic sprays. It works to reduce the number of basophils, monocytes, circulating lymphocytes (T and B cells), and eosinopihils. This action helps provide temporary relief from itching and pain.
DermaCool contains Hydrocortisone 1 % and several other ingredients such as lactic acid, hamamelis extract, propylene glycol, and menthol, which together form the cooling astringent. The cooling spray is the best treatment for a pet suffering from skin lesions and inflammation. The drug is a prescription medication, so you must consult a veterinarian before you buy DermaCool online.
Side effects of DermaCool
You should not buy DermaCool if your pet is allergic to any ingredient in the medication. Do not spray the medication near the eyes of the animal as this may cause health complications. The safety and efficacy of the medication has not been established for pregnant and lactating pets. As such, talk to your veterinarian before you buy DermaCool if your pet is breastfeeding or pregnant.
DermaCool may also cause mild to severe side effects in some pets. Skin rashes and itching are some common side effects associated with the drug. Some pets may also experience a burning sensation, paresthesia, and numbness after spraying the medication on their skin. Consult your veterinarian if your pet experiences any side effects after using DermaCool.
DermaCool may also cause irritation and transient pain in some dogs. In rare cases, the medication may cause severe side effects such as hypopigmentation, hyperpigmentation, and thinning of the skin. Stop using the cooling spray and consult your veterinarian if you pet suffers from any of the above mentioned side effects.
In extremely rare cases, the drug may cause allergic reaction in some pets. Difficulty swallowing, hives, swelling, or trouble breathing are some allergic reaction associated with DermaCool. Consult your veterinarian immediately if you see any symptoms in your pet that indicate allergic reactions after it is given the medication.
Dosage of DermaCool
Your veterinarian will give you specific instructions regarding the use of DermaCool. Shake the bottle well before using it. Spray DermaCool directly on the affected area two or three times daily or as recommended by your veterinarian. Wash your hands thoroughly after handling the product.
DermaCool may interact with other medicines that are given to your pet and cause side effects even though it is not yet known to react adversely with any drug. To be on the safer side, avoid using DermaCool with other topical lotions or sprays as this may lead to harmful side effects.
To reduce the risk of drug interactions, use DermaCool only as per your veterinarian’s instructions. Before starting your pet’s treatment, inform the veterinarian about the different drugs you are administering to your pet.
