E45 Itch Relief Cream is an anti-itch cream that soothes the skin and treats skin conditions including:
This anti-itch cream is fragrance-free, non-greasy and moisturises the skin as well as protect it from further irritation. The active ingredients are lauromacrogols, which treats and soothes the skin, and urea, which is the skin’s natural moisturiser.
This anti-itch cream works by helping the skin to restore its water holding properties. Dry skin happens when the skin becomes dehydrated. This can be made worse by washing the skin, as this can wash away the natural oils in the skin. The urea in the cream penetrates the skin and helps it to restore its natural moisture. The other active ingredient, lauromacrogols, works as an anaesthetic to soothe the skin.
It is suitable for adults and children, aged one month and over. It is not suitable for anyone who is allergic to the ingredients contained in the cream. These are:
People who suffer from inflamed, infected, or oozing in the skin should not use this cream. You should also not use this cream to treat severe and widespread reddening of the skin.
Yes, this cream is suitable to use for someone who is pregnant or breastfeeding. However, do not use just before breastfeeding.
This cream can soothe and soften the skin, which can help other creams to be absorbed into the skin. This is useful for treatments for eczema, for example. However, applying creams at the same time can dilute the ingredients and make them neutralise each other. This is why it is recommended that you do not use E45 within 30 minutes of other creams, ointments, and lotions for the skin.
Apply the cream to the affected area of the skin once or twice a day. If problems persist, then you should seek medical advice as soon as possible.
There is a chance of side effects, but they won’t affect everyone. Potential side effects include:
