  • Duration of application
    • The duration of treatment depends on the course of the disease and, if necessary, is coordinated by the treating doctor.
    • Do not use the medicine for longer than 5 days without medical advice.


  • Children
    • Use in children aged 30 months to 4 years is not recommended due to insufficient experience. The ointment must not be used on infants and children under 30 months.


  • If you have used more than you should
    • If inhaled excessively, coughing and shortness of breath may occur. After stopping inhalation, these symptoms subside.
    • If used excessively on the skin, skin irritation may occur.
    • Inhalation or accidental ingestion of large amounts of the drug can cause significant symptoms (e.g. nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, headache, drowsiness, dizziness, drowsiness with speech problems, confusion, double vision, muscle weakness, shortness of breath, seizures). In this case, even if you have not yet experienced any symptoms, you should contact your doctor. This is especially true if a small child has swallowed large amounts of the ointment. Milk or alcohol should not be drunk in the event of an overdose, as these can promote the absorption of the active ingredients of the drug into the blood.
    • In severe poisoning, shallow, irregular breathing, circulatory collapse and coma are possible. Isolated cases of temporary cardiac arrhythmias and kidney damage have also been reported.


  • If you forget to use it
      • Do not use a double dose if you have forgotten the previous application, but continue the application as prescribed by your doctor or as described in the dosage instructions.



  • If you cancel the application
    • The application can be terminated at any time. Discontinuing the medication is usually harmless.

Way :
  • Application on the skin (rub):
    • Rub chest and back
  • Inhalation with steam:
    • Pour 0.6 liters of hot water over the ointment strand and inhale the rising vapors through your mouth and nose for about 10 minutes (be careful, the vapors are hot at first!).
    • Do not let children inhale without supervision! Be careful when handling hot water!
    • When inhaling with an inhaler, please follow the operating instructions!
Side effects :
  • Like all medicines, this medicine can cause side effects, although not everyone gets them. The list includes all known side effects from treatment with preparations made from eucalyptus oil, including those with higher doses or long-term therapy.
  • Rarely (may affect up to 1 in 1,000 people), contact eczema, allergic reactions or a cough may occur, mainly after application to the skin. Increased irritation symptoms may occur on the skin and mucous membranes. Cramping of the respiratory muscles (bronchospasm, laryngeal spasm) can occur or worsen, mainly after inhalation.

  • Hypersensitivity reactions with rapid heartbeat (tachycardia), reduction in respiratory drive (respiratory depression) and tendency to convulsions have been reported, particularly in infants and small children .
  • Note: If used improperly (swallowed), nausea, vomiting and diarrhea may occur.
  • In appropriately sensitized patients, the drug can trigger hypersensitivity reactions (including shortness of breath, respiratory arrest).
  • Countermeasures
    • If side effects or hypersensitivity reactions occur, the medication should be discontinued and a doctor consulted.
  • If you notice any side effects, contact your doctor or pharmacist. This also applies to side effects that are not specified.
Interactions :
  • When used together with other medicines
    • Tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are taking, have recently taken or might take any other medicines.
    • Eucalyptus oil activates the enzyme system in the liver that breaks down xenobiotics. The effects of other medicines can therefore be weakened and/or shortened. This cannot be ruled out when used over large areas due to the absorption of larger amounts of active ingredient through the skin. Therefore, ask your doctor if you are using or want to use other medicines, especially certain anesthetics or medicines for the treatment of epilepsy (barbiturates), certain painkillers (pyrazolones) or certain stimulants (amphetamines).
