Austro Ivermectin 6 mg
Each Ivermectin Tab contains 6 mg Ivermectin, an anthelmintic agent available for oral administration. Austro pharmaceuticals are the manufacturer of Ivermectin tabs. It effectively treats river blindness (onchocerciasis) and threadworm involving the intestines (intestinal strongyloidiasis). Worm infections cause these conditions. In onchocerciasis, the worm infection mainly targets the skin, glands, and eyes. It causes changes to the skin that include an itchy rash, nodules, thickening of the skin, dark patches, or loss of elasticity. The worm infection can cause enlarged glands in the neck, armpit, or groin region. It can also affect the eye and may cause conjunctivitis, which may lead to vision loss.
In strongyloidiasis, the worm infection mainly affects the intestines and skin. Symptoms of the infection include an itchy rash, diarrhoea, vomiting, and stomach pain. Ivermectin improved the condition by killing the developing worms. The anthelmintic drug is also active against Sarcoptes scabies mite, which causes scabies. Scabies causes intense itching of the skin, particularly at night, accompanied by irritating blisters and lumps on the skin. The infection may occur between the fingers, the wrists, stomach areas, buttocks, scrotum, underarm areas, penis, stomach areas, and female breasts. Scabies can spread from one person to another via sexual contact, and transfer through clothing and furnishings is also possible.
There are reports of potential anti-inflammatory properties, which have been postulated to be beneficial for other purposes. Some research centres have evaluated the use of Ivermectin to treat infections caused by a certain virus. Discuss with your doctor for more information, and make sure you use this drug under doctor’s supervision.
