Description of Lac-Hydrin Cream

There’s no reason why you should have to put up with dry, scaly skin when you can see your doctor or dermatologist about a prescription to buy Lac-Hydrin Cream or generic Ammonium Lactate. This medication will temporarily relieve the itching that can lead to broken skin or lesions that are an open invitation to bacteria. The generic alternative is not manufactured by the company that makes the brand product.

Lac-Hydrin Works to Soothe Your Dry, Itchy Skin

When applied as directed, Lac-Hydrin Cream is absorbed into your skin cells to act as a moisturizer and work on the skin’s surface to help exfoliate the excess dead skin cells. Ammonium Lactate is a compound of ammonium salt and lactic (milk) acid. The cream formula of Lac-Hydrin is easy to apply, absorbs quickly, and washes off with water. Avoid applying to areas of broken skin as it may sting or cause a burning sensation.

Conditions Treated by Lac-Hydrin Cream

Ichthyosis vulgaris is a congenital skin condition that is also known as fish scale disease because of the silvery scales that appear on your skin. This condition is an impairment that causes your skin cells to build up into dry patches because they are not shedding like they should. As new skin cells are formed, the old cells usually slough off. This is a continual cycle of in with the new-out with the old. For those with Ichthyosis vulgaris however, as new cells surface, the old ones merely build-up. As Lac-Hydrin is absorbed, it will help to retain moisture to soothe the itchy, dry patches and help to remove the old skin layer.

Before You Apply Lac-Hydrin Cream

Discuss other medical conditions you have with your doctor and provide information about OTC or Rx drugs you are currently taking, including herbal preparations and dietary or vitamin supplements. This will allow your doctor to determine if Lac-Hydrin Cream is safe for you to apply. Although there is a chance that the ingredients of Lac-Hydrin Cream will be absorbed into your bloodstream, there are no studies to indicate if this poses a possible danger to your unborn or nursing baby so ask your doctor.

Recommendations When Using Lac-Hydrin Cream

Your skin may become more sensitive to sunlight while using Lac-Hydrin cream, so you should use an SPF of at least 15 if you are outdoors and avoid tanning beds and sun lamps. Apply the UV ray protectant after Lac-Hydrin Cream has been absorbed. Keep Lac-Hydrin Cream out of children’s reach and do not share this or other meds with others.
