    Hi. is this safe to use during pregnancy? Thank you

  • Ego Pharmaceuticals Sep 06 ,2016 at 5:22 am

    Hi Sheila,

    Egoderm Cream contains the active ingredient ichthammol, on which there have been no studies performed for use in pregnancy. While absorption of ichthammol through the skin is expected to be minor, due to the lack of information we would advise not using Egoderm Cream during pregnancy.

    Many thanks,

    Thanks for your question!
    Egoderm Cream is a moisturising, anti-itch, anti-inflammatory preparation which can be used as an alternative to steroid containing preparations, or as follow-on treatment after the use of steroid creams. It can help to relieve mild to moderately inflamed skin conditions, however we recommend that you seek medical advice for more severe skin conditions. Egoderm Cream is not a preventative product, however it will help to relieve the symptoms of dry, itchy, inflamed skin conditions such as nummular eczema.

    Many thanks,

    Hi, does this cream help with mild red spots (Psoriasis)
    on face ?

    Thank you.

    Hi Don,

    Egoderm cream is not indicated for Psoriasis, however, Egopsoryl is. I would recommend Egopsoryl TA which is a corticosteroid-free leave-on product to help relieve the itching of psoriasis. This product contains coal tar (5%), phenol (0.5%) and sulphur (0.5%) in an alcohol gel base. It is available in a 30g tube.

    Our Pinetarsol range of soap alternatives uses pine tar as the active ingredient to help reduce red, itchy inflamed skin conditions, including psoriasis. The level of pine tar is 2.3% in the Pinetarsol Solution and Pinetarsol Bath Oil – both of which are best suited for treating large areas of skin. In addition to mild cleansing, the Pinetarsol Bath Oil also moisturises the skin. Pinetarsol Bar (1% pine tar) and Pinetarsol Gel (1.6% pine tar) are easier to use in the shower for application to specific areas.

    Should you wish to apply a moisturiser, I suggest QV Cream which is a rich protective cream for very dry skin. The QV range is designed for dry/sensitive skin. None of the products contain fragrance, colour or propylene glycol, therefore they have a reduced potential to cause irritation.

    All of these products are available from pharmacies across Australia. Should your pharmacy not have a particular product in stock, they can always order it in for you.

    Many thanks,
    The Ego Team
