10g tube.


Description

White smooth cream.


Pharmacology
Cetrimide is a quaternary ammonium disinfectant with properties and uses typical of cationic surfactants. In addition to the emulsifying and detergent properties usually associated with surfactants, it has bactericidal activity against both Gram-positive and Gram-negative organisms but higher concentrations are necessary to kill the later type. it is however relatively ineffective against bacterial spores, acid-fast bacterial, viruses and fungi.


Most effective in neutral or slightly alkaline solution and its bactericidal activity is appreciably reduced in acid media. To effect maximum bactericidal activity, it is essential to ensure that the skin to which it is applied is free from soap. Activity is greatly reduced in the presence of blood, cotton and other organic matter.


Indications
Win-Aid Antiseptic Cream is for the treatment of cuts, abrasions, burns and wounds. Its actions include preventing as well as treating infected wounds.


Direction

Apply to affected area 2 to 3 times a day.

Symptoms
Cetrimide has depolarising muscle relaxant properties and toxic symptoms include dyspnoea and cyanosis due to paralysis of the respiratory muscles, possibly leading to asphyxia. Depression of central nervous system (possibly preceded by excitement and with convulsions), hypotension and coma may also occur.

 

Treatment
Give milk, gelatin solution or egg white; the use of a mild soap solution has been suggested; avoid alcohol. Assist respiration and treat shock. Control convulsion by the intravenous injection of Diazepam.
