Dermatological Preparations for the Tropics provides practical and background information on the local production of topically applied medicines for the treatment of skin diseases in the least developed countries and regions around the world. It aims to be a reliable source of information to select and to produce dermatologicals: what to prepare for which indication and how to do this? It also gives background information on choices and methods for a better understanding. The formulary focuses on effective and cheap extemporaneous preparations with sufficient stability, that are suitable for local production and use under tropical conditions. A total of 35 preparations are presented, covering the safe treatment of a broad range of skin diseases. The book aims to stimulate pharmacists, medical doctors and other health care workers in resource scarce areas to develop local production, dispensing and use of dermatological preparations that meet the specific therapeutic needs, taking into account the given circumstances and limitations. We hope the book may find its way to the targeted users in a wide range of situations and will prove to be useful in daily medical and pharmaceutical practice.
