What Adex Gel is and what it is used for
Adex Gel is a highly moisturising and protective skin emollient which has an ancillary anti-inflammatory medicinal substance that It helps in the treatment and routine management of dry and/or inflamed skin conditions such as mild to moderate atopic dermatitis, various forms of eczema, contact dermatitis and psoriasis in circumstances where ancillary anti-inflammatory action added to the primary emollient action may be beneficial (e.g. during flares). Such use may help reduce reliance on more potent anti-inflammatory treatments such as corticosteroids and immunomodulators
Adex Gel is for use by adults, the elderly and children from 1 year of age.
See more on eczema on the NHS website.
Adex Gel Side Effects
Although emollients are generally very helpful in treating dry skin conditions, they can sometimes be associated with temporary tingling, itching or stinging, especially where the skin is broken or scratched. Regular use of emollients can help to restore damaged skin, so occurrence of such symptoms may subside after a few days of emollient treatment. However, if such symptoms occur and are troublesome or persist for more than a few minutes, after application of Adex Gel, or do not subside once the gel has been used for several days, stop using the gel and, if necessary, consult your doctor, nurse or pharmacist for advice. Although specially designed for use on problem skin, in rare cases this product may cause mild rashes or allergic skin reactions on extremely sensitive skin. These rare effects tend to occur during or soon after the first few uses.
Stop using this gel and tell your doctor, nurse or pharmacist:
- if your skin condition seems to look or feel worse;
- if any of the side effects get serious, or you notice any other side effects not mentioned in this leaflet.
If this product is accidentally swallowed, its oily ingredients may cause diarrhoea. If this happens:
- treat the symptoms as you would deal with any case of diarrhoea
- drink plenty of water
- do not attempt to cause vomiting.
How To Use Adex Gel
This product is for generalised all-over application to the skin. Apply it three times daily or as often as needed
- Before using the 500 g bottle, turn the top of the pump dispenser anti-clockwise to unlock it. After unlocking the first time, you will need to press down the pump dispenser several times to prime the pump before any product is dispensed
- Gently smooth Adex Gel over and around all dry and/or inflamed skin areas. For best results, use a few gentle strokes to smooth the gel across the skin in the same direction as hair growth (like stroking a cat or dog). If necessary, allow time for any excess to soak in. Do not rub the skin vigorously
- If you are using other topically applied products, any instructions supplied with the other product should be followed to allow adequate time for absorption before applying Adex Gel. The time allowed should normally be around 30 minutes for topical corticosteroids and up to 2 hours for certain calcineurin inhibitors. This is to avoid diluting the other product and spreading it to areas that do not need it
- Carry on using Adex Gel for as long as necessary – whether that may be only occasionally, e.g. during flares, or continuously if the added anti-inflammatory action is beneficial.
- If there is no improvement within 2 to 4 weeks, ask your doctor or pharmacist for advice
