Description of Nicam Gel

For the treatment of mild to moderate acne problems, talk to your doctor about a prescription for Nicam Gel. The active ingredient is Nicotamide, a natural compound from the vitamin B family that helps to reduce and relieve the inflammation that can cause acne and rosacea as well as help to decrease darkened areas of your skin caused by hyperpigmentation.

Nicotinamide Works to Reduce Inflammation that Can Cause Acne

Nicam Gel does not direct its actions on the bacterial overgrowth that occurs with acne, but works to stop the sebum oxidization that will prevent the pimples from developing altogether. Other benefits include strengthening your skin barrier and decreasing dark spots to even out your skin tone.

Nicam Gel also helps to block inflammation caused by iodide compounds that can be found in the foods you eat that contain high sodium levels. This includes seafood, processed food, and the added use of table salt to your meals.

Conditions Treated by Nicam Gel

According to newer research, inflammation causes damage to the sebum (oil) on your skin so it becomes oxidized, meaning the oxygen level of the sebum is lowered. Propionibacterium acnes (P. acnes) is the bacteria that can inhabit the hair follicles as its new home as it thrives in areas with low or no oxygen. An infection develops and secondary inflammation then leads to red, sore, pimples.

Before Nicam Gel is Prescribed

Ask your doctor about the use of Nicam Gel if you are pregnant, trying to become pregnant, or are breast feeding as it is only applied topically. If you tend to be prone to skin sensitivity, try a test patch before applying Nicam Gel to your face or other acne prone areas. You can also reduce the amount of times you use Nicam Gel per day should you notice any reaction to your skin. Discuss other medical conditions and the Rx drugs you currently take or use, including any OTC meds, herbal remedies and other supplements so your doctor can determine if Nicam Gel is right for you.

Nicam Gel Precautions

If you are also using other topical products, including make-up, allow Nicam Gel to be absorbed before applying anything else. If you get Nicam Gel in your eyes, nostrils, or mouth, rinse the area with tap water right away. Keep Nicam Gel and other medications out of children’s reach and away from pets.

Due to the vitamin B formulation, Nicam Gel is usually well tolerated by all skin types, with few to zero side effects of dry, red, irritated skin. However, if you experience redness or dryness, talk to your doctor and you may be advised to only apply Nicam Gel once daily until your skin is accustomed to the ingredients.
