Creams for Eczema, Psoriasis & Dermatitis
Creams can be used to treat eczema, psoriasis, and dermatitis in adults and children. Creams are easily absorbed and lock in moisture. Some products also combat the bacteria naturally present on the skin, which makes eczema worse. This provides relief from itching and soreness caused by dry, inflamed skin.
Emollient creams lock in moisture and form a protective layer. This is especially helpful if you suffer from localised eczema and dermatitis on your hands. Active ingredients include benzalkonium chloride, chlorhexidine dihydrochloride, liquid paraffin and isopropyl myristate.
Creams are available in tubes or a pump dispenser. Tubes are handy for carrying around in a bag or pocket, but if you need to treat larger areas, a pump dispenser will make life easier.
