Balneum Cream is a topical ointment that is used in the treatment of dermatitis and eczema. Balneum cream contains 5% urea and ceramide 3. The 5% urea helps clear dry skin, and the ceramide content builds the barrier function of the skin, making Balneum Cream an effective solution to fight dry skin disorders like eczema. Since this cream contains no artificial colourants, fragrances or preservatives, it can also be used by people with sensitive skin.
Balneum cream helps with the treatment of eczema, a skin condition that leads to your skin becoming dry in patches across your body. This dry skin condition is often accompanied by symptoms like reddening of skin, inflammation, itching, and cracked skin during a flare-up.
Balneum cream contains 5% urea, which helps to hydrate the skin from the inside out. Balneum cream also contains ceramide, a fatty acid that helps build the skin's barrier function, thereby helping to lock the moisture in. These two ingredients in Balneum Cream help fight eczema effectively.
Balneum Cream is to be used as directed by your doctor. It is typically applied to dry skin two times a day, whenever it is convenient. Regular application of the cream might yield faster results.
Wash your hands thoroughly before applying Balneum Cream, and clean the area where you're applying the cream. First, pat the skin dry, and then use the cream onto the skin.
If you're using this cream to treat dry skin conditions like eczema, avoid bathing with hot water and harsh soap, which might worsen your skin condition because it can remove the sebum from your skin's surface.
Though both Balneum Cream and Balneum Plus Cream are used to treat dry skin conditions like eczema, they target different symptoms. While Balneum Cream helps soothe dry skin with the help of its active ingredients like urea and ceramide, Balneum Plus Cream contains slightly different ingredients.
It contains urea and lauromacrogols, which helps deal with symptoms of eczema like itching and irritation on the skin.
