PRUZAX ULTRA cream also restores the normal epidermal barrier function.

PRUZAX ULTRA cream contains polidocanol (Macrogol Lauryl Ether/ Lauromacrogols). Polidocanol has not only slight local anaesthetic effect, but also anti-pruritic properties, which make it an ideal agent for the management of dry and itching skin conditions (i.e. atopic dermatitis, psoriasis, etc).

The antipruritic action of a polidocanol-urea containing topical preparation was demonstrated in a resent Observational Study, conducted in Federal Republic of Germany with the participation of 196 physicians and 910 patients (among them were 25 children 0-6 years old and 34 children 6-12 years old) with Atopic Dermatitis (36% of the patients), Pruritus Senilis (24% of the patients) and other itchy skin conditions. At the end of the study, 82.7% of the patients observed a good or excellent reduction of pruritus (itch). Positive effects on pruritus (itch) were shown immediately or after a few minutes. The conclusion of the study was that “…the polidocanol-urea preparation is an efficient, safe and well tolerated treatment option in skin diseases with the leading symptoms of xerosis and itch…”.
