What is Contractubex and when is it used?

Contractubex is a post-scar tissue treatment gel. Hardened and excess scar tissue is softened and smoothed.

Contractubex is used for excessive, bulging scars that restrict movement and for limited joint mobility due to involuntary permanent shortening of the muscles (contracture), amputations and accidents as well as scar shrinkage.

What should be considered?

Particularly when treating fresh scars, extreme cold or excessive massaging must be avoided.

Scars should be protected from the sun's rays.

This medicine contains the preservative sorbic acid (E200).

Sorbic acid may cause localized skin irritation (e.g. contact dermatitis).

This medicine contains the preservative methyl parahydroxybenzoate (E218).

Methyl 4-hydroxybenzoate can cause allergic reactions, including delayed reactions.

This medicine contains a fragrance with citronellol, geraniol, benzyl alcohol, citral and linalool. Citronellol, geraniol, benzyl alcohol, citral and linalool can cause allergic reactions.

When must Contractubex not be taken/used?

Contractubex must not be used if you are hypersensitive to one of the ingredients.

Infants under 6 months.

Use only on intact skin and never on open wounds. Avoid contact with eyes and mucous membranes.

When is caution required when using Contractubex?

Contractubex may only be used on the closed and healed scar.

Due to the small amount of heparin contained in Contractubex Gel, an interaction with medicines that inhibit blood clotting (these include medicines for blood thinning as well as many painkillers and rheumatism medicines) and would thus lead to an increase in the risk of bleeding is not to be expected . Ask your doctor for advice before using Contractubex.

Itell your doctor, pharmacist or druggist if you

  • suffer from other illnesses,
  • have allergies or
  • take other medicines (including those you bought yourself!) or use them externally!

Can Contractubex be used during pregnancy or breastfeeding?

Systematic scientific studies have never been carried out. If you are pregnant or want to become pregnant, or if you are breastfeeding, you should avoid taking medicines and only use Contractubex after consulting your doctor.

How do you use Contractubex?

Contractubex is rubbed gently into the skin several times a day - gently massaged in for rougher scars - until the gel has completely penetrated. For bulging strands of scars, it is advisable to apply the gel under a bandage, thick as a knife back, overnight. Depending on the extent and strength of the existing scar or in the case of restricted joint mobility due to an involuntary permanent shortening of the muscles (contracture), the treatment extends over several weeks.

In clinical trials, Contractubex has been used in some cases in children as young as one year without any adverse events. However, since there are no comprehensive results on the use of Contractubex in children, any use in children under 2 years of age should only be carried out on the basis of a doctor's prescription. No data are available for use in infants. Due to the particular vulnerability of this patient group, Contractubex should not be used in children under the age of 6 months.

Stick to the dosage given in the package leaflet or as prescribed by your doctor. If you think the medicine is too weak or too strong, talk to your doctor, pharmacist or druggist.

What side effects can Contractubex have?

The following side effects can occur when using Contractubex:

In very rare cases, local hypersensitivity reactions such as allergic skin reactions can occur. In such cases, treatment should be discontinued.

If you get any side effects, talk to your doctor, pharmacist or druggist. This also applies in particular to side effects that are not listed in this leaflet.

What else needs to be considered?

The medicinal product may only be used up to the date marked «EXP» on the container.
