Product Description

What is Balneum cream used for?

Balneum Cream is used to treat skin conditions such as eczema and dermatitis.

 

 

How does this medicine work?

The main active ingredient is urea and this helps to clear dry skin in three ways. It hydrates the skin, removes dead skin (keratolytic) and helps stop any itching. Ceramide builds up the skin’s barrier function and, as this cream contains no fragrances, artificial colourants or preservatives, it is also suitable for people with delicate skin.

Tests have shown that even after short-term use of Balneum cream, the skin stays hydrated up to four times longer than when using other creams. Apply the cream twice daily, particularly after bathing, as it will keep the skin moisturised.

It is a lack of water in the outer layer of skin cells (stratum corneum) which leads to dry skin. Dehydration causes the skin to lose its flexibility and so it becomes scaly, cracked and sometimes itchy. This outer layer has the ability to retain water which comes up from the deeper layers. This top layer also has a film of sebum, a natural oil which holds skin cells which have broken down. Together, they reduce evaporation and therefore help retain the water from the skin’s surface.

Drying out increases with age and the situation is exacerbated by bathing with hot water and soap, as these remove the sebum from the skin’s surface. Dry skin conditions such as eczema and dermatitis can be greatly helped by the use of moisturising bath oils, regular use helping to restore and maintain the smoothness of the skin. This helps reduce redness, itching and the scaling of skin and, after using these moisture products, it is a good idea to pat the skin dry, as rubbing will remove some of the moisture layer than has been built up from the product. In the case of eczema, regular use can prevent flare-ups.

This treatment may not be suitable to people who are allergic to soya or peanuts, or to any of the ingredients contained in Balneum cream. Always give your doctor full details as to your health and to any allergies, so that he can assess how suitable this treatment is for you.

If you are using any other creams to treat your condition, please make your doctor aware of this, as the active ingredient in Balneum cream can cause the active ingredients from other products to pass through the skin.

 

How do I use this medicine.

This cream should be applied twice per day to the affected regions of skin. For more information, refer to the Product Information Leaflet.
