Description:

Ichthammol is also called Ichthammolum. Chemically called Ammonium Ichthosulfonate or Ammonium Bituminosulfonate. Ichthammol is the ammonium salt of dark sulfonated shale oil. Ammonium Bituminosulfonate is used successfully as active pharmaceutical ingredient(API) of natural origin for more than 10 decades for the treatment of skin diseases.

Technically, Ichthammol is a mixture of many different compounds. Not only singe substance.

Chemically, Ammonium Bituminosulfonate is a sulfonated shale oil which is incompatible with acids, alkali carbonates or hydrates and alkaloidal salts. Ichthammol is a thick reddish brown liquid, with a bituminous odor and taste. Ammonium Bituminosulfonate is soluble in water and miscible with glycerol. However, Ichthammol is almost insoluble in strong alcohol or concentrated ether. Ammonium Ichthosulfonate contains a large percentage of organically combined sulfur.

Uses Of Ichthammol USP BP

1.Boils

Ichthammol (Ammonium Bituminosulphonate, Ichthammol) is most commonly used to treat boils. The boils result from infections in the hair follicles and it can be red, swollen, and filled with pus. Ichthammol (Ammonium Bituminosulphonate, Ichthammol) will draw out the infection by pulling the pus to the surface of the skin so that it can be pierced.

2.Ear Treatment

A mixture of Ichthammol (Ammonium Bituminosulphonate, Ichthammol) and glycerol is commonly utilized to treat ear infections.

3.Spider Bites

Some spider bites are poisonous and it can cause painful bumps or death. Ichthammol (Ammonium Bituminosulphonate, Ichthammol) ointment will help to draw out the venom. This is the reason why it is widely seen in some of the anti-spiderbites products. However, medical advice is still needed even it is already treated with Ichthammol (Ammonium Bituminosulphonate, Ichthammol). It must be applied on the bite area and covered with a bandage. Supervise the bite area closely after the usage.

4.Splinters

Ichthammol USP BP (Ammonium Bituminosulphonate, Ichthammol) is also very good in drawing out splinters which are embedded in the skin. Splinters like wood and glass, if not removed in time, could end up in septic infection. Before applying the Ichthammol (Ammonium Bituminosulphonate, Ichthammol), a thoroughly clean should be done to the exact area. After covering the hurting area with Ichthammol USP BP (Ammonium Bituminosulphonate, Ichthammol) and a bandage, supervise the progress closely from time to time. If everything is going well, the splinter will come out of the surface of the skin, which can then be pulled out with tweezers.

5. Stings

Stings from hornets, bees, and wasps could lead to painful rashes in the skin. Ichthammol USP BP provides relief from the pain of the sting.

Functions of Ichthammol USP BP (Ammonium Bituminosulphonate, Ichthammol):

1.Kills Bacteria

Many researches and studies already proved that ichthammol USP BP EP was effective at killing certain bacteria. It was tested both individually and mixed with glycerol. Ichthammol USP BP EP alone will provide better antibacterial effects than the glycerol mixture. Staphylococcus and streptococcus bacteria, both of which are infective agents in ear and throat infections, were killed by the ichthammol USP BP. Other bacteria studied, including strains of proteus and pseudomonas bacteria, were not significantly affected by the medicine. While ichthammol alone was more effective, the addition of glycerol to ointments provides anti-inflammatory and dehydrating effects which are beneficial for those who are suffering from certain infections.

 

2.Treats Eczema Symptoms

Eczema is a skin condition characterized by itchiness, rashes and a scaly condition sometimes accompanied by flaking and pus-filled blisters. Ichthammol USP BP (Ammonium Bituminosulphonate, Ichthammol) is able to effectively prevent this leather-like hardening of the skin. In addition to alleviating itchiness, Ichthammol USP BP (Ammonium Bituminosulphonate, Ichthammol) prevents the tough protein keratin from being deposited in the skin cells. A preparation of ichthammol combined with waxes or fats will help to retain moisture and help ichthammol better penetrate trouble areas of the skin.

 

3.Relieves Dry Hooves in Horses

A preparation of 20% is widely utilized for treating weak and brittle horse hooves. Ichthammol USP BP (Ammonium Bituminosulphonate, Ichthammol) works as an emollient and antiseptic which will reduce inflammation and fight infection in open sores and wounds. It is also applied for skin irritation and softening skin in horses. Ichthammol USP BP (Ammonium Bituminosulphonate, Ichthammol) may be used two times a day to affected areas with or without a bandage. For severe hoof dryness accompanied by bleeding, a veterinarian should be consulted before using ichthammol.
