When to use SODERMIX®


Eczema is characterized by erythema, pruritus, vesiculation, and, in more chronic forms, scaly desquamation. Contact eczema may be due to chemically induced irritation or allergic sensitization.

In the working population of Western countries, contact eczema (both irritant and allergic) accounts for 85-90% of all occupational skin disease. Hand eczema has been estimated to affect 2-6.5% of all populations in Western countries.

The memory T cells that mediate allergic contact eczema are of the Th1 subtype, characterized by the production of interleukin 2 and interferon gamma, two potent cytokines. Tissues are activated to release cytokines (including interferon gamma) that attract other cells and activate vascular responses, resulting in the characteristic inflammation of contact eczema.

The causal agent should be identified by epi-cutaneous patch tests. Contact allergy can be induced by a huge range of substances encountered daily.

The patient should then be advised to avoid the causal agent.

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 eczema.
  • 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.
