Frequently Asked Questions
Temporary Stinging on Application: The usual sensation when Calmoseptine® Ointment is applied is a gentle cooling. However, when nerve endings are exposed due to denuded skin, the stinging on application may occur. This does not indicate a danger to the patient, and it will usually subside within 30 seconds. After one or two application, the skin is usually healed enough so that the stinging no longer occurs.
Note: If the patient cannot tolerate the sensation, remove the ointment by one of the methods described below.

As in any allergic reaction, more severe symtpoms such as extreme discomfort or difficulty breathing (anaphylaxis) could occur.
