Compounding Topical Medications for Dermatology

Dermatological medications can be greatly enhanced by a compounding pharmacy. Imagine the ability to adjust your topical medications to work in harmony with your body’s specific needs!  We do just that here at Pleasant Hills Pharmacy.

Our compounding process can offer you a variety of advantages when it comes to your dermatological illnesses. We can compound medications to make them easier to administer. We can make the medications more potent, or combine multiple medications into one highly-potent customized medication. We can remove specific ingredients from a medication, preventing allergic reactions for our customers.  In short, we can custom-build a medication or combination of medications that are designed specifically for you.

Some of the more common dermatological medications that we compound include:

  • Skin cleansers (such as Benzoyl Peroxide and Glycolic Acid)
  • Eye care treatments (such as Retinol topical creams and vitamin E Acetate)
  • Anti-aging treatments (such as Arginine topical cream, Acetyl Hexapeptide/Acetyl Dipeptide)
  • Rosacea treatments and medications (such as Dapsone and Niacinamide)
  • Acne medications and treatments (such as Metronidazole and Lipoic Acid)
  • Candida medications and treatments (such as Clotrimazole and Fluconazole)
  • Collagen production medications (such as Estradiol)
  • Skin moisturizers and dry skin treatments (such as Sodium Hyaluronate)
  • Cut and wound medications
  • Scar reduction creams and gels
  • Eczema medications
  • Treatments for warts
  • Nail fungus medications
  • Shingles medications (such as Ketoprofen and Acyclovir)
  • Head lice treatments
  • Tinea pedis medications
  • Psoriasis medications and treatments
  • Facial peels and exfoliants
  • Nail removal
  • Diaper rash
  • Allergic rashes and hives
  • Powerful antiperspirants and deodorants

It’s surprising that more people don’t turn to compounding pharmacies for treatments and medications related to dermatological needs. Here at the Pleasant Hills Pharmacy, we can help increase the absorption of medications via the skin, provide alternative solutions or specific formulations, and can even adjust the pH levels in medications to work seamlessly with your skin and body.
