Dermalex Hand Irritation is a new treatment for mild to moderate eczema of the hands, designed for use by adults and children aged over six.

The hands are often one of the first places to exhibit the symptoms of eczema. Because of contact with irritants commonly contained in household detergents, cleansers, and soaps, eczema may flare up on the hands and be difficult to shift.

Even many standard dry skin treatments contain chemicals that aggravate eczema, such as parabens, colours, and fragrances.

Dermalex Hand Irritation is a treatment that contains no irritants and avoids the use of steroids. It acts both to moisturise dry and cracked skin and help protect it into the future. By restoring the skin’s natural, protective, lipid barrier, it helps it to retain more moisture and remain hydrated naturally, making it smoother and more flexible.  It also relieves soreness and itching and by, closing cracks in the skin, it makes infection less likely.

Because it is irritant-free and has a protective action, this cream is suitable for long-term use either as a standalone treatment or in conjunction with other treatments (if prescribed by a doctor or pharmacist).




For the first few days, apply Dermalex Hand Irritation to skin dampened with lukewarm water.

It can be applied 2-3 times per day on the affected skin areas after washing your hands, as well as after bathing or showering. Massage it gently into the freshly-cleansed skin.


You can use Dermalex Hand Irritation cream for as long as symptoms persist, but if you suffer from eczema on more than 40 percent of your body, it is advisable to see a skin specialist.

Seek advice from a doctor before using this cream while pregnant.

Do not use on children under the age of six or where the skin has open wounds. If you have a known hypersensitivity to any ingredient, refrain from use and, in case of lasting irritation, stop using it and speak to your pharmacist or doctor.

Read the instruction leaflet carefully before use. Store out of children’s reach and use only externally.

Side Effects

There may be a slight burning sensation when using Dermalex Hand Irritation, but this is normal. There are no reported side effects and no interactions with any other medicines.

Scientific Research

For people with Eczema

HelloSkin’s experts did not find clinical data on the use of Dermalex Hand Irritation in people with eczema. However, the product contains glycerin and ceramides. In patients with atopic dermatitis, a glycerin cream compared with a glycerin free placebo was able to hydrate stratum corneum and restore barrier function during the treatment when treated twice daily for 4 weeks (1).

Also, in young children (2-6 years) with atopic dermatitis, an emollient with glycerin and paraffin compared to its vehicle improved skin dryness and hydration and the eczema severity after 4 weeks (2).

Ceramides are a family of lipids found naturally in high concentrations in the cells of the upper skin layer and are essential for the proper function of healthy skin (3). In the upper layer of atopic dermatitis skin the level of ceramides is reduced compared with healthy skin (4, 5).

In a study of people with atopic dermatitis a ceramide containing cleanser and moisturiser was applied twice daily for 6 weeks, and was shown to reduce disease severity and itching compared with before the treatment (6). In dry skin conditions, including atopic dermatitis, water loss from the upper skin layer is linked to a reduced skin barrier function, which can worsen the disease symptoms (7).
