Tacrolimus (also FK-506 or fujimycin, trade names Prograf, Advagraf, Protopic) is an immunosuppressive medicine used main an after allogeneic organ transplant to lower the risk of organ rejection. It achieves this by inhibiting the production of interleukin-2, a molecule that promotes the development and proliferation of T cells, which are vital to the body’s learned (or adaptive) immune response. Tacrolimus is also used in the treatment of other T cell-mediated diseases such as eczema (for which it is applied to the skin in a medicated ointment), severe refractory uveitis after bone marrow transplants, exacerbations of minimal change disease, Kimura’s disease, and the skin condition vitiligo.

Tacroz Tacrolimus 0.03% – 0.1%  is a topical ointment that is normally prescribed for persons who have not responded successfully to other eczema creams and ointments. The ointment is a type of topical calcineurin inhibitor (TCIs) that works by weakening the immune system, which as a consequence directly reduces the severity of eczema and its symptoms. It should not be used by persons who have any kind of weak immune system.

  • Firstly wash your hands with soap and water. Be sure that the skin in the affected area is dry.
  • Apply a thin layer of tacrolimus ointment to all affected areas of your skin.  Rub the ointment into your skin gently and completely.
  • Wash your hands with soap and water to remove any leftover tacrolimus ointment.
  • Do not wash your hands if you are treating them with tacrolimus.
  • You may cover the treated areas with normal clothing, but do not use any bandages, dressings, or wraps.

    Had a patch test for cosmetic ingredients and am allergic to the preservative kathon (methylisothiazolinone). Tried many cortisone creams but Tacroz (Protopic generic) was the only treatment that worked.

    It’s a 10/10 for me. After a whole year of being under treatment, I am finally done & I am honestly scared to try anything on my face anymore. Thanks to my Dermatologist I know she has my back. She recommended okdermo for a cheap source of original products.

    This definitely works, but you must stick with it! When I first put it on my skin (face and neck only), it felt extremely hot and very, VERY itchy. I thought I was having an allergic reaction to it and/or my skin flare-up was getting worse. After several hours the itching dissipated and my skin just felt hot in the worst affected areas – this wasn’t too bad at all. The redness also cleared up and my skin started looking totally normal (as if I didn’t have eczema). Pretty amazing result.

    I started using this cream on my hands a couple of weeks ago, almost immediately my hands started burning but I put it down to dermatitis. After a few days, there was an improvement on my hands so I carried on using it once a day. Last weekend I drank wine and my goodness, my face and neck started burning and went really red, I never correlated it to the cream I just thought I’d developed an allergy to the wine. That evening my whole body started tingling, it was quite scary. Still didn’t think it could have been the cream so I carried on using it once a day, the tingling carried on all week, it was driving me to despair. Yesterday I read the patient leaflet and to and my horror the common side effects are the ones I was suffering from. I do have sensitive skin so maybe that’s why I reacted so badly. I didn’t use the cream last night, still tingling skin today but not as bad, hopefully, it will be out of my system soon. My advice is don’t use this cream if you have sensitive skin.

    After years of having eczema flare-ups all over my face and body – I did my Dr’s regime – which worked wonders! However still get eczema only around my eye area – so my Dr prescribed me Protopic (purchased Tacroz the same active component as Protopic but cheaper at okdermo). After reading some of the other experiences, I was scared to try it at first due to the burning sensation others had experienced. However I gave it a go after major anxiety – I put a thin layer around my eyes and about 2 hours after my skin felt slightly warm, not warm like a flare-up – just felt like I was close to a heater, but it wasn’t a horrible sensation and my skin didn’t feel hot to the touch. It wasn’t painful at all – thank goodness! This sensation lasted about 2 hours and didn’t get any worse. I’m now on my 5th day and have not experienced that sensation since the first time and my eczema has disappeared – amazing! Wish I was given this as a teenager, would have saved a lot of upset about my skin around my eyes! Can’t get over how quick and well it’s healed!
