This form of Protopic (Tacrolimus) 0.03% is used on the skin to treat a skin condition called eczema (atopic dermatitis) in patients who have not responded well to (or should not use) other eczema medications.

Eczema is an allergic-type condition that causes red, irritated, and itchy skin. Protopic (Tacrolimus) 0.03% works by weakening the skin's defense (immune) system, thereby decreasing the allergic reaction and relieving the eczema. Protopic (Tacrolimus) 0.03% belongs to a class of drugs known as topical calcineurin inhibitors (TCIs).
