Description

Eczmol Cream is both a moisturising cream and an antiseptic, used to treat the symptoms of dry skin conditions such as eczema and dermatitis, and to protect the skin from future problems.

The moisturising element of this cream works by helping to restore the skin’s natural protective barrier, which is often damaged due to a skin condition. This barrier helps lock moisture in to the deeper layers of the skin and reduce the dehydrating effect of excess evaporation from the outer layer.

The increased moisture soothes the soreness and itching associated with many dry skin complaints, making the skin smoother and softer in the process. This cream also keeps the skin’s surface germ-free by the addition of Chlorhexidine Gluconate, which is an antiseptic that helps combat the bacteria that can cause infections and exacerbate some skin conditions. This effect might be very pleasant to those who like the feeling of freshness and cleanliness when applying creams on the hands.

Many standard soaps, shower gels, and cleansers contain irritants that make dry skin conditions worse. This white-coloured cream is irritant-free can act as a soap replacement, as well as a topical emollient.

Eczmol can be used by children (12+), adults, and the elderly. If used in conjunction with other medicines, inform your doctor or skin specialist. To find creams intended for babies with dry skin or eczema, click here.

Directions

When used as a topical emollient, Eczmol Cream should be applied to the affected areas as often as required. Massage the cream into the skin gently, until it is absorbed.

As a substitute for soap, use with warm water in the bath or shower, as you would a normal soap. Then pat the skin gently dry with a soft towel. Note that rubbing vigorously may aggravate dry skin.

Suitable for use on the face

Precautions

Eczmol Cream is to be used only on the skin, but should not be used on skin that is cut.

Keep it out of the sight and reach of children. If accidentally swallowed in large amounts, serious side effects may result and you should seek immediate medical attention.

If it gets into the eyes or ears, flush it out clean water or by swabbing.

In case of hypersensitivity to chlorhexidine gluconate, cetostearyl alcohol, or any of the other ingredients it contains, do not use Eczmol.

Sensitivity reactions are more common in people with ulcers or a dry itchy rash (dermatitis) on the lower legs. In case of an unexpected reaction, stop using this cream and consult with your doctor.

This cream is generally considered safe for use during pregnancy and breast feeding, but check with your doctor first.

Side Effects

Side effects of using Eczmol include irritation of the skin, skin wheals, and blisters. Rarely, it results in severe allergic reactions that cause swelling of the face, lips, tongue, or throat, low blood pressure, and even unconsciousness, in addition to rashes or asthma. No interactions with other medicinal products have been identified, but check with your doctor if using with other medicines.

Scientific Research

For people with Eczema

HelloSkin’s experts were unable to find clinical data on the effect of Eczmol cream in people with atopic dermatitis. However, the product contains chlorhexidine gluconate (anti-bacterial) and petrolatum.

In atopic dermatitis, an impaired skin barrier integrity and increased susceptibility to secondary bacterial infections in the skin are some of the characteristics. Although petrolatum is generally known to provide moist and to some extent reduce water evaporation across the skin surface, a recent study of the effect of petrolatum in patients with atopic dermatitis concluded that petrolatum is able also to modulate levels of antimicrobial peptides, and induce the expression of markers related to barrier integrity, such as filaggrin (1).
