  • Chloramphenicol (chloramphenicol) is a broad – spectrum antibiotic which provides bactericidal (kills bacteria) effect on the majority of infectious agents that cause pyoderma;
  • Methyluracil – improves local immunity, has anti-inflammatory effect, strengthens the processes of regeneration of tissues, speeds healing.

Together, the two components reinforce each other, so the ointment Levomekol has effective antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, immune-stimulating and healing effect. In the presence of pus and necrotic masses antibacterial action Levamisole remains. Ointment Levomekol from acne is prescribed: it is applied in a thin even layer on the affected skin, closing them completely, 1-2 times a day for 5-10 days.
