What is Adex Gel?
Adex Gel is a topical medication used to treat eczema and dermatitis. It comes in the form of a gel and is applied directly to the affected skin.
What is Adex Gel used for?
Adex Gel is primarily used to relieve the symptoms of eczema and dermatitis, such as itching, redness, and inflammation. It can also be used to manage other skin conditions as prescribed by a doctor or pharmacist.

When applying Adex Gel, follow these steps:
- Clean and dry the affected area of the skin.
- Apply a thin layer of the gel to the affected area and gently rub it in.
- Wash your hands after applying the gel, unless your hands are the affected area.
Adex Gel should be applied once or twice a day, as directed by your doctor or pharmacist. It is important to continue using the gel for as long as recommended, even if the symptoms improve, to ensure the condition is fully treated.
