ammonium bituminosulfonate

What is the difference in the Ichthammol you buy from the vet and the Ichthammol you buy from the drug store? ## Hello, Monk! How are you? Most likely there isn't any difference.

This one is usually used topically, so the most common side effects, in both canines and people, may include skin redness, irritation, dryness and rash, as listed by the FDA. Is there anything else I can help with?
