• Hypersensitivity to the ingredients of TERRAMYCIN (allergic reactions including contact dermatitis) due to hypersensitivity to the person, which is rarely reported.
USE TERRAMYCIN CAREFULLY in the following situations
• If new infections due to non-susceptible bacteria or fungi occur during the treatment, use it carefully. To prevent this, your doctor will constantly observe you and make the necessary examinations.
• If the systemic application of this drug affects the whole body, if there is a delay in skeletal development, permanent discoloration of the teeth and insufficient growth of tooth enamel, use it carefully. This should be taken into account during tooth development (if you are in the last half of pregnancy or if the patient is less than 8 years old). Although it is not possible for these effects to occur due to the low doses used in topical tetracycline administration, such a possibility should also be considered.
If the skin infection is severe or tends to develop into a (systemic) infection that affects the whole body. Your TERRAMYCIN skin ointment treatment will be supported by a systemic treatment that affects the whole body.
It is used externally and is intended to be applied only to the skin.
Please consult your doctor if these warnings apply to you, even at any time in the past.
Consult your doctor or pharmacist before using this medication.
There are no controlled studies on the use of TERRAMYCIN in pregnant women.
Systemic use of tetracyclines, an antibiotic group, in pregnant women has resulted in delayed fetal skeletal development and bone growth. However, local tetracyclines should only be used during pregnancy when the potential benefits outweigh the possible risks.
