When to use SODERMIX®

Dyshidrosis (Pompholyx)

Pompholyx is a common type of eczema affecting the hands (cheiropompholyx), and sometimes the feet (pedopompholyx). It is also known as dyshidrotic eczema or vesicular eczema of the hands and/or feet.

The first (acute) stage shows tiny blisters (vesicles) deep in the skin of the palms, fingers, instep or toes. The blisters are often intenesly itchy or have a burning feeling. The condition may be mild with only a little peeling, or very severe with big blisters and cracks which prevent work.

The later and more chronic stage shows more peeling, cracking, or crusting. Then the skin heals up, or the blistering may start again. One site may be blistering, while another is dry and cracked.

Proinflammatory cytokines and cell adhesion molecules are elevated in this disorder.

Hence, by reducing the synthesis and secretion of cytokines and cell adhesion molecules, 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.
