How does Silkis work?

Silkis ointment contains the active ingredient calcitriol, which is a type of medicine called a vitamin D analogue. Calcitriol is used to treat plaque psoriasis, which is a condition that results in the scaling and thickening of the skin due to excessive skin cell production. Calcitriol reduces the excessive skin cell production by binding to the vitamin D receptors on skin cells called keratinocytes, in the same way as natural vitamin D would bind. This helps to bring the rate at which skin cells are produced back to normal and therefore helps to improve the symptoms of plaque psoriasis.

How should I take Silkis?

Silkis is an ointment for use on the skin only. Always use this medicine exactly as directed by the doctor.  If you are not sure about how to use this medication, feel free to contact CLick Pharmacy with any queries. 

  • Carefully apply the ointment to face since it has a higher risk of the irritation. Avoid contact with sensitive areas like the eyes.

  • After using the ointment, wash hands to prevent the unintentional spread to the non-affected zones.

  • Due to the potential effect on calcium metabolism, the ointment may not be applied under an occlusive wound dressing.

  • In case of the severe irritation or allergic reaction occur, the treatment should be stopped, and contact the doctor immediately.

  • Although no significant hypercalcemia (high blood calcium levels) was observed during the clinical studies with this ointment, there is some absorption of calcitriol by the skin. This gives a risk of an increase of blood or urine calcium levels.

  • Do not swallow this product. If you accidentally do so, seek immediate medical attention. 

  • Regularly follow your treatment, according to strictly to your doctor's advice.

  • If you feel that the effect of this medicine is too strong or too weak, talk to your pharmacist or doctor. 

The risk is minimal if you follow your doctor’s advice. However, if any problem occurs after using the Silkis, then do contact your doctor or physician.

What dose should I chose?

  • There is no experience with the use of Silkis in children. Therefore, Silkis should not be used in children. 
  • Do not use more than 30g of ointment per day, and do not cover more than one-third of skin area, approximately one full leg and the one full arm.

  • Wash your hands after each application in order to avoid any contact with other non-lesioned areas. 

  • Apply a thin layer of Silkis over the affected areas to be treated twice a day, morning and evening, before retiring or as advised by a doctor.

What are the side effects of Silkis?

Silkis have side effects like all other medicines, but not all individuals get them. In case of severe irritation or contact allergy, then treatment should be stopped, and the patient should seek medical attention. If contact allergy is confirmed, then the treatment must be discontinued.

Side effects of the Silkis may take place:

  • Common side effects may be

  • Skin discomfort.

  • Pruritus.

  • Erythema (skin redness).

  • Skin irritation.

  • Uncommon side effects may take place:

  • Psoriasis aggravation.

  • Dry skin.

  • Not known side effects may be

  • Contact dermatitis.

  • Skin oedema.

  • Hypotonia (decrease tension in muscles), lack of appetite, constipation, nausea, vomiting and depression may occur after using too much calcitriol. Therefore, contact your physician if these symptoms appear.
