glycyrrhizic acid is activated (equivalent to ammonium glycyrrhizinate) 0.1 g
excipients: malic acid; fumaric acid; ascorbic acid; folic acid; propylene glycol; Tween 80 (polysorbate 80); purified water
Description of dosage form
The solution is from light yellow to light brown, having a characteristic odor.
Pharmacological action - antiviral, immunostimulating, antipruritic, regenerative, anti-inflammatory local.
The active substance of the drug Epigen Intim is activated glycyrrhizic acid, obtained by extraction from plant raw materials (licorice root).
Activated glycyrrhizic acid has a complex effect, including immunostimulating, antiviral, anti-inflammatory, antipruritic and regenerative.
Activated glycyrrhizic acid induces the production of intrinsic interferons.
Immunostimulating effect is manifested by an increase in the number and activity of T-lymphocytes, a decrease in the concentration of IgG and an increase in the concentration of IgA and IgM.
Activated glycyrrhizic acid has an antiviral effect on different types of DNA and RNA viruses in vitro and in vivo (Varicella zoster, herpes simplex virus types 1 and 2, CMV, various types of human papillomavirus, including oncogenic). Activated glycyrrhizic acid interrupts the replication of viruses in the early stages, causes the virion to leave the capsid, thereby preventing its entry into the cells. Activated glycyrrhizic acid inactivates these viruses in non-toxic concentrations for normally functioning cells. Mutant strains of viruses resistant to acyclovir and iodoridine are also highly sensitive to glycyrrhizic acid, as well as non-mutant strains.
The anti-inflammatory activity of activated glycyrrhizic acid is combined with a stimulating effect on the humoral and cellular immunity factors. Activated glycyrrhizic acid significantly inhibits the release of kinins and the synthesis of PG cells of connective tissue in the area of inflammation. Regenerating effect is due to improved skin and mucosal repair.
With external and local application, activated glycyrrhizic acid is deposited in the lesions. Systemic absorption is slow. The drug is found in the blood in trace amounts.

Hypersensitivity to the components of the drug.
pregnancy and lactation
The drug is approved for use throughout the period of pregnancy and breastfeeding.
Individual intolerance of the drug components is possible.
In rare cases, local allergic reactions are possible, incl. in the form of contact dermatitis.
There was no interaction with the main groups of drugs used for complex treatment for these diseases (antibiotics and antiseptics, anti-inflammatory and analgesics).
Synergism was detected with the simultaneous use of activated glycyrrhizic acid and other antiviral substances, in particular derivatives of acyclovir, iodoridine, interferon and other immunomodulators.
Dosing and Administration
Outer, intravaginal, intraurethral.
Before use, shake the can. When using the balloon, keep it in a vertical position. When applied externally, the drug is applied to the entire affected surface of the skin from a distance of 4-5 cm 1-2 pressures of the valve, which is the optimal therapeutic dose.
For intravaginal application of the drug is attached a special nozzle with a nebulizer. Remove the valve from the spray bottle and attach the nozzle valve. Then attach the nozzle to the vagina and make an injection by 1-2 clicks of the nozzle, which is the optimal therapeutic dose.
When used by men, in addition to external application, the drug is injected into the external opening of the urethra by 1-2 pressures of the valve of the atomizer.
With herpesvirus infection type 1, shingles, the drug is recommended to be applied 6 times a day, on the lesion, for 5 days. If the infectious process persists, the treatment period is prolonged until the symptoms disappear completely.
For herpesvirus infection type 2 (genital herpes), CMV infection is recommended to be applied 5 times a day for 14 days externally and intravaginally, after relapse relief - externally and intravaginally 3 times a day, for 10 days.
In order to prevent recurrence of genital herpes and CMV infection, the drug is recommended to be applied externally and intravaginally from the 18th to the 20th day of the menstrual cycle until the end of menstruation, 2 times a day, in the morning and in the evening.
In the case of papillomavirus infection, the drug is recommended for use:
- until the removal of genital warts - 3 times a day during the entire period of etiotropic therapy;
- against the background of destruction - 5 times a day for 10 days and more until complete healing;
- to prevent immediate relapse 3 times a day for 1 month.
To prevent the progression of papillomavirus infection, it is recommended to apply before and after intercourse, as well as in case of provoking factors (stress, fatigue, respiratory viral infections, microflora, antibiotics, cytotoxic agents) 3 times a day intravaginally and externally during the period of exposure to provoking factors.
With bacterial vaginosis, nonspecific vulvovaginitis and vulvovaginal candidiasis, the drug is recommended to be administered intravaginally 3-4 times a day for 7-10 days. If necessary, repeat treatment after 10 days. When there are provoking factors (respiratory viral infections, antibiotics, cytotoxic drugs) - 3 times a day intravaginally and externally during the entire period of exposure to provoking factors.
In cases of discomfort in the genital area, accompanied by itching, burning and dryness of the mucous membranes, 2 times a day (morning and evening) for 2-3 weeks. To prevent conditions of discomfort, use regularly after intercourse.
As a preventive antiviral drug is recommended to use the drug before and after sexual intercourse.
The nozzle is washed with boiled water and soap and stored in the attached PE packaging.
The design of the nozzle allows you to maintain the effect of uniform irrigation of the cervix and vaginal walls.
For use in hospital settings, intravaginal irrigation with a drug in mirrors can be performed without a nozzle.
For effective action, no preliminary washing of the application site is required.
In case of signs of intolerance, stop using the drug.
