ALPHADERM (HYDROCORTISONE/UREA)

Alphaderm Description

Reduce the symptoms of eczema flare-ups, neurodermatitis, prurigo, or other dermatoses that cause red, itchy patches of skin, talk to your doctor about a prescription to buy Alphaderm. This cream contains two active ingredients that reduce the swelling and inflammation, while rehydrating your skin so it is softer and not itchy. Scratching to relieve the itch can cause a lesion or tear in your skin and allow bacteria to enter and cause an infection. Eczema, neurodermatitis, and prurigo are not contagious nor is there a cure. Treatment with Alphaderm will provide respite and help you break the itch-scratch cycle so your skin has a chance to repair itself.

Alphaderm Calms Your Itchy, Inflamed Skin

One of the active ingredients of Alphaderm is Hydrocortisone, a topical corticosteroid that acts inside your cells to inhibit the release of inflammatory chemicals, such as prostaglandins, that incite painful swelling and redness. The other active ingredient is Urea, a natural part of your skin’s tissues that constitutes a small percentage of your natural moisturizing factor (NMF) which declines with age.

When applied as directed, Alphaderm reduces inflammation while quenching your dry skin with moisturizing relief as it reaches the outermost layer of your epidermis and retains water and helps the Hydrocortisone to be absorbed deeper.

Conditions Treated by Alphaderm

Your skin is important as a first line of defense between your body and the outside environment. Current research suggests that eczema results from the faulty structure in the outer two layers that make up your skin called the epidermis. This would make your skin barrier more porous so your skin is vulnerable to toxins and antigens. This can trigger your immune response into believing your are under attack so skin cell production may be increased for protection but your dead skin cells have not been sloughed off fast enough causing the build-up of dry skin patches.

Neurodermatitis, also known as lichen simplex, and prurigo are both skin conditions that cause a cycle of itching and scratching that can interfere with your sleep, work, and socializing. Prurigo is believed to be associated with other health problems including diabetes, atopic eczema, thyroid disease, and pregnancy.

Before Alphaderm is Prescribed

Ask your doctor whether it is safe to apply Alphaderm while you are pregnant, may become pregnant, or are breast feeding. To determine if Alphaderm is right for you, tell your doctor about other medical conditions or allergies you have and provide a list of all medications you take or use, including herbal remedies and dietary or vitamin supplements.

Alphaderm Precautions and Recommendations

Do not apply Alphaderm to young children without consulting with your doctor. If you need to apply other topical creams or lotions such as sunscreen, you should do so thirty minutes before or after the Alphaderm application. Wash your hands thoroughly after applying Alphaderm unless it is your hands that require treatment. Do not get Alphaderm in your eyes, nose, or mouth and rinse immediately if this occurs. Keep all medications out of children’s reach and never share them with anyone else.
