How to Get Started with Dermatology Compounding
Compounded drugs are non-label versions of FDA approved drugs. Frequently, these drugs are used to provide custom solutions where specific dosages or other modifications aren’t available.
Compounding pharmacies specialize in filling these custom prescriptions. We work with your doctor to make sure your unique needs are met.
Because compounded medicine has to be made specially by a pharmacist, it’s necessary to visit your doctor before beginning treatment with any new compounded medications. You can get started by sending us your new or existing prescriptions.
Common Dermatology Compounding Products
Many dermatological compound medications are intended to be administered transdermally, i.e. through the skin. Such topical medications can be excellent alternatives to typical medicines administered orally or by other methods for people with swallowing or similar disorders.
Dermatology compounding products are also of great use for people needing fast pain relief, as topically administered drugs don’t need to be broken down in the stomach before entering the bloodstream.
Some common dermatological compounding products include:
- Topical Creams – These creams can be applied specifically to the pain area, allowing a higher concentration of medicine to be absorbed where it’s needed.
- Ointments – Similar to creams, compounded ointments allow medication to be absorbed in the most impactful areas—although their thicker, more viscous base allows for a barrier on the skin to trap much-needed moisture.
Others include lotions, solutions, and topically-applied pastes. Different bases provide for different benefits and dosages, so we can work with you and your doctor to determine the best solution for your dermatological needs.
Conditions Treated by Dermatology Compounding
Pharmaceutical compounding can be an incredibly effective treatment option for people suffering from dermatological conditions such as:
- Skin wounds

Given that dermatological compounding is a personalized service, the optimization of each medicine or administration depends on unique factors.
