Changes the sensitivity of microflora resistant to antibiotics.
In most cases, Dimexid is used in combination with other medicinal substances (previously dissolved in it or inflicted on the skin) for a better and deeper penetration into tissues (for example, with Heparin in the treatment of thrombophlebitis, with glucocorticoids in the treatment of eczema, with antimicrobials for treatment of furunculosis, erysipelas, acne, etc.).
