|D - Dermatologicals|
Most of the drugs in this group are preparations for topical use. Some few preparations for systemic use with clear dermatological applications, e.g. griseofulvin (antimycotic), retinoids (for treatment of acne) and psoralens and retinoids (for treatment of psoriasis) are classified in this group.
Only oral preparations in ATC group D are given DDDs. Most products in this group are for topical use, and no DDDs are assigned because the amount given per day can vary very much according to the intensity and distribution of the disease. Consumption figures for these dermatological preparations can be expressed in grams of preparations regardless of strength.
