What is Eurax Cream?

Eurax Cream is a topical medication that contains the active ingredient crotamiton. It is used to relieve itching and skin irritation caused by various conditions such as eczema, dermatitis, allergic reactions, and insect bites. The cream is applied directly to the affected area of the skin and works by reducing the itching sensation and inflammation.

What is Eurax Cream used for?

Eurax Cream is used to alleviate itching and skin irritation associated with a range of conditions, including eczema, dermatitis, allergic reactions, and insect bites. It provides relief by soothing the affected area and reducing the urge to scratch, which can further irritate the skin.

How does Eurax Cream work?

Eurax Cream contains crotamiton, which is an anti-itch medication. When applied to the skin, crotamiton works by reducing the activity of certain chemicals in the body that are involved in the itching and inflammatory response. This helps to alleviate the itching sensation and soothe the affected skin.

Who is Eurax Cream suitable for?

Eurax Cream is suitable for adults and children over 3 years of age. It is safe for use during pregnancy and breastfeeding, but it is always advisable to consult a doctor or pharmacist before using any medication during these periods. However, Eurax Cream may not be suitable for individuals who are allergic to crotamiton or any other ingredients in the cream. It is also not recommended for use on broken or infected skin.

How to apply Eurax Cream

  1. Clean and dry the affected area of the skin before applying Eurax Cream.
  2. Apply a thin layer of the cream to the affected skin and gently rub it in until it is absorbed.
  3. Wash your hands after applying the cream, unless your hands are the affected area.

Eurax Cream should be applied 2-3 times daily, or as directed by your doctor or pharmacist. It is important to use the cream for as long as recommended, even if the symptoms improve, to ensure the condition is fully treated.
