Compounding is the art and science of tailor making medications for unique needs and preferences. A compounding chemist is a pharmacist who prepares human and veterinary medication into different dosage forms. These may be troche, lozenge, capsules, transdermal gels and creams, suppository and pessary dosage forms.
Most of these require a Doctor's prescription and are customised to your needs and can contain more than one medication in this dosage form. We can also compound medications that are no longer commercially available. Our goal is to work closely with your doctor to improve the outcome of your treatment and health.
 
 

Topical Vitamin B12 for Eczema

        Treatments for eczema (atopic dermatitis) aim to control inflammation, decrease itching, and manage infections that may occur as a result of repeated skin irritation. Common treatments can cause significant side effects; for example, topical corticosteroids used to decrease inflammation and control itching may cause skin thinning and prolong the healing time of damaged skin, and topical tacrolimus can cause a burning sensation or itching. Topical vitamin B12 offers a new therapeutic approach for eczema. In a randomized, placebo-controlled study, 49 patients applied compounded vitamin B12 cream to affected areas on one side of the body, and a placebo cream to affected areas on the other side of the body two times per day for eight weeks. Vitamin B12 was significantly superior to placebo in reducing the extent and severity of eczema, and the treatment was very well tolerated. Ask our compounding pharmacist about vitamin B12 cream and other customized medications that meet specific patient needs.
