Why is this medication prescribed?

Berdazimer topical is used to treat molluscum contagiosum (MC; infection caused by a virus that causes little bumps to form on skin anywhere on the body) in adults and children over the age of 1 year. Berdazimer is in a class of medications called nitric oxide releasing agents. How it works to treat MC is not fully understood.

How should this medicine be used?

Berdazimer comes as a gel to be applied to the affected areas of the skin. For a maximum of 12 weeks, it is typically given once daily to each MC skin lesion. Pay close attention to the instructions on the label of your prescription and ask your pharmacist or doctor to explain anything you do not understand. Apply berdazimer precisely as instructed. Use it exactly as advised by your doctor; do not take less or more of it.

Two tubes and a dose instructions are included with the benazimer. Amounts should be squeezed out of each tube equally onto the dosage guide. For information on how much berdazimer to apply, refer to the dosage guide and follow the instructions. Tightly replace the covers on both tubes, then combine the contents on the dosing instruction. Spread a small layer of berdazimer over each MC lesion. When handling lesions on the hands, wash your hands first. Refrain from touching your eyes or applying gel to sections of your body that are not impacted. After applying, let the berdazimer dry for ten minutes and refrain from bathing, washing, or going swimming for one hour.

Applying berdazimer in the mouth, vagina, or areas surrounding the eyes is not advised. Blend berdazimer just before using. Throw away any leftover mixed berdazimer. Don’t save for a later time. To guarantee total lesion removal, take berdazimer for the entire recommended duration by your doctor.
