I have been looking for Butesin Picrate for years with no success. It suddenly disappeared from pharmacies. My tube says it is from Abbott Australasia Pty Ltd Sydney Australia.

I have sent an email to Abbott Australasia Pty Ltd. Their name is on the bottom of the tube that I have almost finished. I hope to get a reply soon. Perhaps if you email them also we might get some results.

I have used this cream and have been amazed by its efficiency and how quick recovery from serious burns has been. I was dismayed when it disappeared from the Australian pharmacy and have searched without luck. I have a small amount left from the largest tube and would have stock piled many had I known. If anyone knows of a source we would be grateful.

I've been trying to get this wonderful medicine here in the US but no luck. I know they sell this in Guatemala, where I come from. The problem is to get someone to get it for me I guess you can search Pharmacies in Guatemala and contact them to see if they can ship one to you. Little risky though. In Spanish is call Picrato de Bustesin

Looking for Butesin Picrate cannot find anywhere most stores say they have never heard of it. I really need it for my kitchen to have on hand. The last tube i have is down to enough for a very small burn.

My mother used this cream on me when I was burnt as a child. I am not 63 years old and have only found this twice as an adult. I live in the central valley of California and would like to know if it is available in this area. Or, can I purchase this on-line? Thank you in advance for your reply..........

David Genn Says:

Butesin Picrate was sold as a burn ointment. Its greatest import is an a healing agent for cuts, abrasions and especially for infections. In 1957 I cut the end off my thumb with an axe. A person stuck it back on with BP. In two days, good as new.
Twenty years ago it was readily available in Canada, then it disappeared from the market. For five years I got it in the US, then it disappeared. I phoned Abbott in Australia. They told me that they had shut down the plant. They didn't seem to know what it was really for. I called a buddy in Melbourne and sent him shopping. He sent me four tubes.I am using it up, sparingly. I reported my discoveries to Glaxo Pharmaceuticles. The Director of Research said it was impossible. Should be able to make it. BP is a simple salt. Mix it at two percent with Vaseline.Let me know if you solve this. David Genn, Sooke, BC.

My mother also had this in her kitchen when I was growing up. I am now 46, and treat the one tube I have like one of the crown jewels. Like everyone who has posted here, I cannot believe it isn't available.

It is an amazing cream and irreplacable for burns. However, because it contains traces of mercury, it was withdrawn from the market in Australia - apparently it's still available online from the US

My experience was the same. Always in the medicine cabinet for effective relief of sunburn. I once administered it to a little girl who was badly sunburned on her back. Overnight she felt 100% better. Does anyone know why such an effective product was withdrawn by Abbot?
