MYRAMISTIN® exerts a profound antibacterial effect, including to hospital strains with resistance to antibiotics.
MYRAMISTIN® is the most efficient to combat gram-positive bacteria (Staphylococcus spp., Streptococcus spp., Streptococcus pneumoniae, etc.), gram-negative (Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Escherichia coli, Klebsiella spp., etc.), aerobic and anaerobic bacteria in the form of monocultures and microbe associations, including hospital strains with multiresistance to antibiotics.
MYRAMISTIN® exerts anti-mycotic effect on Aspergillus and Penicillium, saccharomyces (Rhodotorula rubra, Torulopsis gabrata, etc.) and saccharomyce-like ones (Candida albicans, Candida tropicalis, Candida krusei, Pityrosporum orbiculare (Malassezia furfur) etc.), dermatophytes (Trichophyton rubrum, Trichophyton mentagrophytes, Trichophyton verrucosum, Trichophyton schoenleini, Trichophyton violacent, Epidermophyton Kaufman-Wolf, Epidermophyton floccosum, Microsporum gypseum, Microsporum canis, etc.), and any other pathogenic fungi, in the form of monocultures and microbe association, including one of the fungous microflora characterized by its resistance to chemotherapy medications.
MYRAMISTIN® exerts antiviral action, is active with respect to complex viruses (herpes, human immunodeficiency virus, etc.).
MYRAMISTIN® suppress microbes causing sexually transmitted infections (Chlamydia spp., Treponema spp., Trichomonas vaginalis, Neisseria gonorrhoeae, etc.).
MYRAMISTIN® effectively prevents contamination of wounds and burns. It stimulates regeneration processes. It stimulates protective responses at the administration sites through stimulation of phagocyte function to engulf and digest and potentiates the activity of monocytic macrophage system. It exerts vigorous hyperosmolar action which allows for substantial reduction of wound and perifocal inflammation, absorbs purulent exudate, enabling dry crust formation. It does not destroy granulation and viable skin cells; does not oppress edge epithelialization.
It does not exhibit local irritation and allergic properties.
Following local administration, MYRAMISTIN® is not absorbed through skin and mucosa.
Surgery and traumatic surgery: prevention of suppuration and treatment for festering wounds, as well as suppurative inflammation processes in locomotor apparatus.
Obstetrics and gynecology: Prevention and treatment of suppurative post-natal injuries, perineum and vaginal wounds, post-natal infections, inflammatory diseases (vulvovaginitis and endometritis).
Kombustology: treatment for minor and serious burns of the second and third degrees, preparation of burns for dermatoplasty.
Dermatology and venereology: Prevention and treatment of pyoderma and dermatomycosis, skin and mucous membrane candidasies, sole mycosis.
Individual preventive care of sexually transmitted infections (syphilis, gonorrhea, clamidiosis, trichomoniasis, genital herpes, genital candidiasis, etc.).
Urology: complex treatment for acute and chronic urethritis and urethroprostatitis of general and specific (chlamydosis, trichomoniasis, gonorrhoea) and nonspecific kinds.
Stomatology: Prevention and treatment of infectious and inflammatory diseases of mouth cavity: stomatitis, gingivitis, paracementitis and pericementitis. Hygienic treatment of separable dentures.
Otolaryngology: complex treatment of acute and chronic otitus, antritis, tonsillitis, laryngitis, and pharyngitis.

In case of purulent genyantritis, irrigate genyantrum with sufficient volume of MYRAMISTIN® during the centesis.
Tonsillitis, pharyngitis and laryngitis are treated by gargling and/or irrigation using a spray nozzle by pressing 3-4 each time 3-4 times per day. Use 10-15ml for one gargle.
