TCP Antibacterial Ointment

Hi
Looking for TCP Ointment 30g
I can't find any in pharmacies in the town but looked online and very few places sell them - however these sites look a bit dodgy.
Please can anyone advise if they know where this stuff can be bought or if they have used the website before?

We always refer to TCP as Tom Cats Piddle because that's what it smells like!

Re: TCP Antibacterial Ointment

There's Parmacy2U. Haven't used them before but I am looking for an ointment and TCP has good reviews for what I need it for Wink
I may give it a go..
@jelv - that's what my granddad used to call it.

I always use chemistdirect.com but they don't have it.
Most chemists own brand antibacterial / antiseptic ointment will do exactly the same job.

It would appear that the product is no longer marketed http://www.omegapharma.co.uk/our-brands/tcp/

That'll be the phenol. It always reminds me of burning SRBP printed circuit boards!

Re: TCP Antibacterial Ointment

I seem to recollect from somewhere that manufacturers making claims for medicines, creams and potions had to prove they were both tested for safety and also meet the claims for treatment. Undertaking such testing can be expensive and sometimes too revealing. As a consequence some popular remedies are difficult to obtain. I think Milk of Magnesia is also one of those.

Re: TCP Antibacterial Ointment

Boots have it online, but in liquid format.
There are alternatives out there for ointments.

Re: TCP Antibacterial Ointment

Would prefer the cream - this isn't for me - my in law's father.
He has got some from a few years ago and ran out today.
I found it on that website I provided but when I went back to it the postage had increased to £10 for 2 + £4.XX for the actual products.
So I think the website is dodgy!  It also gives reference to www.bestpharmacyonline.co.uk which has been suspended?!?!
