Dermatology Compounding New York

If a skin condition has begun to dramatically impact your life, it may be time to try compounded dermatology medications from a respected New York compounding pharmacy.

Medical conditions involving the skin can be some of the more difficult ones to cope with. In addition to suffering from pain and other physical symptoms related to the condition, visible skin issues can cause self-esteem damage and make you feel uncomfortable in your own skin.

Fortunately, that’s where dermatology compounding from a New York compounding pharmacy could change your life. By formulating a custom medication to meet your body’s specific needs, you could be one step closer to getting back to your life. Below, we go into further detail about what drug compounding is and how it applies to skin conditions. 

What Is Drug Compounding?

Drug compounding allows pharmacists to create custom formulations of standard drugs. Traditional pharmacies only carry certain types and dosages of drugs. This means if you need to deliver your medication in a non-traditional way or need a personalized dosage, you can get your medicine from a qualified compounding pharmacy. 

Compounded drugs are safe when formulated in a qualified and licensed facility, and when taken as prescribed. However, because every custom drug cannot be reviewed by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), compounded drugs are generally not FDA approved. For this reason, you should contact your health insurer to find out whether your policy provides coverage for compounded medications.

Dermatology and Drug Compounding In New York

Dermatological conditions are those that affect the skin. In order to heal the skin using compounded drugs, dermatology compounding uses a variety of bases, including:

  • Ointments
  • Topical creams
  • Lotions
  • Liquid solutions
  • Gels

The type of base used to formulate your compounded medication will depend on how potent your medication will be and the type of drug. Some more common types of dermatology compounded drugs include:

  • Clindamycin
  • Erythromycin
  • Tetracaine
  • Ketoconazole 
  • Azelaic acid
  • Hydrocortisone
  • Doxepin
  • Squaric acid
  • Monobenzone fluconazole
  • Acyclovir
  • Salicylic acid
  • Benzoyl peroxide 
  • Camphor
  • Prilocaine
  • DMSO pharmaceutical grade
  • Menthol
  • Lidocaine
  • Phenol
  • Neomycin

People may need compounded drugs for a number of reasons, but some more common uses of dermatology drugs include acne preparations, bleaching, eczema, wound management, non-antibiotic acne preparations, scar treatments, anesthetics, hair loss, diaper rash, nipple cream, and antifungals, to name a few.
