A topical emollient cream preferred by patients with ichthyosis and eczema.
Dry skin conditions like ichthyosis and eczema are hugely prevalent in the UK with atopic eczema affecting a fifth of school-age children. One of the key skin treatments in looking after eczema and ichthyosis is to use emollients as often as possible; they are the foundation on which all additional treatment is based. Sticky or messy and oily creams with residues are not used as often by patients. Dexeryl Cream is a non-greasy emollient which was preferred by patients when compared to other emollient creams.
