LAC-HYDRIN LOTION (AMMONIUM LACTATE)

Lac-Hydrin Lotion Description

If you are dealing with dry, scaly skin caused by cold weather or an inherited condition known as Ichthyosis vulgaris, see your doctor about a prescription to buy Lac-Hydrin Lotion. This medication will not cure Ichthyosis vulgaris, but it can help to relieve the symptoms of itchy, dry skin that can appear as polygon-shaped scales that are usually found on the elbows and/or lower legs. Winter months can be especially bad for some people who find their skin is so dry and flaky and regular creams and lotions just aren’t enough to help the skin retain moisture.

Moisturize and Exfoliate with Lac-Hydrin Lotion for Healthier Skin

Lac-Hydrin Lotion or generic Ammonium Lactate consists of ammonium hydroxide and lactic acid. When applied as directed, ammonium hydroxide works as a hygroscopic agent to help your skin retain moisture so the scaly flakes are reduced, while the lactic acid is an alpha hydroxy acid that exfoliates the dead skin flakes from the outermost layer of your skin. Unless advised by your doctor, avoid applying Lac-Hydrin Lotion to your face as you may find that it can be irritating. Do not use Lac-Hydrin Lotion on children as their skin is more sensitive. The generic alternative is not manufactured by the company that makes the brand product.

Conditions Treated by Lac-Hydrin Lotion

Our skin cells are always in a cycle of growing new cells and sloughing off the old ones. However, Ichthyosis vulgaris causes a change in the process of shedding the outer layer of skin and instead the flaky skin cells build up and cause dry, itchy patches to form on your skin. Aging is another reason that your skin becomes dry as your body tends to lose sweat and oil glands that usually keep your skin well hydrated and fresh looking. Dry skin can also be caused from smoking, too much sunlight exposure, stress, or not drinking enough fluids every day.

Before Lac-Hydrin Lotion is Applied

Advise your doctor about other medical conditions or allergies you have and provide a list of medications you take or use regularly, including herbal remedies and dietary or vitamin supplements to determine if Lac-Hydrin is right for you. You should consult with your doctor to see if Lac-Hydrin Lotion is safe to use if you are pregnant, may become pregnant, or are breast feeding.

Lac-Hydrin Lotion Proper Use and Recommendations

Wash your hands before and especially after applying Lac-Hydrin Lotion to avoid getting any product in your eyes, mouth, or nose to avoid any irritation. Your skin may be more sensitive to sunlight so you should apply an SPF (skin protection factor) of at least 15 once Lac-Hydrin Lotion has been absorbed into your skin. Do not apply Lac-Hydrin to any areas of your skin that is sunburned or has open wounds to avoid increased burning or stinging sensation.

Possible Side Effects of Lac-Hydrin Lotion
