What is Dermacool Plus 2% Menthol Aqueous Cream?
Dermacool Plus is a cream treatment for providing relief for skin conditions for skin treatments such as eczema and psoriasis. This cream will also treat other conditions, such as sunburn and prickly heat. The active ingredient of the cream is menthol, which works by cooling the skin by triggering the receptors on the skin. It also moisturises the skin and prevents the skin from drying out.
What is the cause of eczema?
Eczema is a skin condition that is caused by a number of different reasons. These can include an allergic reaction (atopic eczema) and coming into contact with certain substances (contact dermatitis). Eczema and dermatitis are 2 names for the same thing. There is no known cure for eczema, but the right form of treatment can reduce the effects of the condition.
