Balneum Plus Cream

Balneum Plus Cream works by replacing the oils that have been lost in dry skin, with a soothing and softening effect. This also helps prevent further loss of skin moisture. Balneum Plus Cream also contains urea, which is a substance found naturally in the skin that helps the skin retain water. It is used in people with dry skin conditions such as those with eczema and psoriasis whose skin has reduced amounts of urea. Balneum Plus cream contains lauromacrogols in an easily absorbed smooth white cream to relieve itching.

How effective is Balneum Plus Cream?

Balneum plus cream is active in keeping the skin moisturised for 24 hours. It is used for the treatment of itching and lack of hydration caused by dry skin, often in those suffering from eczema, psoriasis, dermatitis, and other skin scaling conditions which worsen when the skin is allowed to become dry.

Balneum plus cream contains lauromacrogols in an easily absorbed cream to relieve itching. It works by replacing the oils that have been lost in dry skin, with a soothing and softening effect.

Balneum Plus Cream also contains urea, which is a substance found naturally in the skin that helps the skin retain water.

Balneum plus cream has been shown to increase the lipid content of the skin. After the twice-daily application for four weeks, its use was associated with a significant reduction of the presence of certain bacteria that are sometimes present in dry skin conditions.

The active substances are urea 5% and lauromacrogols 3%. The other ingredients are dimethicone, phenyl dimethicone, liquid paraffin, cetylpalmitate, stearic palmitic acid, octyldodecanol, glycerol 85 %, polysorbate, carbomer, trometamol, benzyl alcohol and purified water.

It is important not to use this product if there is an allergy or sensitivity to any of its ingredients, as this will aggravate the skin condition. Balneum plus cream is for external use only. Mucous membranes and eyes should be avoided.

How should I use Balneum Plus Cream?

Balneum plus cream can be used by children, adults, and the elderly. It should be applied to the affected area/s twice a day. 

Since there is no known cure for some of these skin conditions, it is important to adopt certain lifestyle habits in order to prevent flare-ups as much as possible. In most people, this may mean using a body wash without perfumes and soap. Using washing products made purposely for hypersensitive and dry atopic skin will prevent further irritation and drying of the top layers of the skin. It is also important to avoid boiling water and to stay too close to heaters for the same reason.

The patient is also encouraged to avoid scratching the itchy skin as this may continue to damage the skin, cause breakages and spread the flare-up. Chronic scratching may cause the skin to thicken to a leathery texture. Instead of scratching, the areas can be gently rubbed with the skin of the fingers instead.

In babies with atopic eczema, anti-scratch mittens may be used to stop them from scratching and damaging the skin.

How long do I apply Balneum Plus Cream for before I notice a difference?

The length of use depends on the condition, the severity of the condition, and whether the cream is deemed to be therapeutically useful. Its effect can be felt from the very first application. The ingredients in Balneum Plus Cream are safe to use for many years. 

During flare-ups, the doctor may prescribe addition topical or oral treatment to accompany the cream.

What are the side effects of Balneum Plus Cream?

Like all medicines, Balneum Plus Cream may have side effects, but these are uncommon. If any of the side effects occur, the product should be stopped, and medical advice sought. 

These may include a burning sensation of the skin, redness, increased itching, the formation of pustules, or worsening of the condition.  

Please speak to your doctor or consult our specialists at Click Pharmacy should you require any further advice.
