When to use SODERMIX®


Skin psoriasis is a very prevalent disease, and it's particularly prevalent in Northern Europe and Scandinavia: there have been some recent studies in Norway where population prevalence exceeding 4% has been suggested.

The vast majority of patients have disease onset before the age of 40 years.

In patients with skin psoriasis, the quality of life is comparable to severe conditions, such as cancer, heart attack, arthritis and diabetes mellitus, as well with regard to the physical component as to the mental scores.

In psoriasis, there is a central role for the interaction between T cells and activated macrophages.

Both CD4 + T cells and CD8+ positive cells ultimately lead to activation of macrophages, and release of a variety of type 1 cytokines (Th1), such as IFN-gamma, IL-2 and TNF-alpha.

These cytokines are responsible for keratinocyte proliferation and lack of maturation, and vascular changes characteristic of psoriasis.

Then , psoriasis appears as being a typically inflammatory dermatological disorder, in which the cascade of cytokines and chemokines is particularly active .

Hence, by reducing the synthesis and secretion of cytokines and chemokines, Superoxide Dismutase (SOD) contained in SODERMIX® permits to:

  • Suppress immediately the pruritus frequently associated with psoriasis
  • Reduce in a rapid manner the inflammation, and consequent discoloration of the skin.
  • Help to restore the normal epidermis

SODERMIX® Cream is very simple to apply and should be used twice a day.

Spread a thin coat of SODERMIX® Cream over the affected area, and allow it to penetrate before using regular cream and/or make-up.

Continue to use SODERMIX® Cream until no further benefits are visible; on the contrary consult your physician.

In normal conditions of use, SODERMIX® Cream is showing a remarkable safety of use and tolerability.

Anyhow, it is recommended to take the following precautions:

  • SODERMIX® Cream should not be applied to open wounds.
  • SODERMIX® Cream should be applied on clean and dry skin.
  • If redness, pain or irritation occurs, discontinue use and consult your physician.
  • Keep SODERMIX® Cream out of reach of children. For external use only.
