Description of Epiceram

Epiceram is a steroid free skin barrier, available in the form of a topical emulsion. The ingredients in the drug include xanthan gum, squalane, sorbic acid, purified water, potassium hydroxide, phenoxyethanol, petrolatum, palmitic acid, hydroxypropyl bispalmitamide MEA, glyceryl stearate, glycerin, E. cerifera wax, disodium EDTA, dimethicone, conjugated linoleic acid, citric acid, cholesterol and capric acid. Your doctor will not recommend you to buy Epiceram if you have allergy to any of these ingredients.

Indications & Dosage of Epiceram

Epiceram is a topical application used to treat skin dryness and relive burning or itching due to certain medical conditions of the skin, including irritant contact dermatitis, atopic dermatitis or radiation dermatitis. The drug works by moisturizing your skin so that dryness and irritation is relieved. Epiceram is a fragrance-free, steroid-free, and ceramide-dominant formulation.

Usually, your doctor will advise you to apply a thin layer of Epiceram on the affected area two times a day. After applying the emulsion, massage it in gently so that it gets absorbed into your skin. If you are applying Epiceram on broken skin, your doctor will advise you to cover the area with an occlusive dressing.

In order to maintain a constant level of Epiceram in your body, try to apply the emulsion at almost the same time each day.

Side Effects & Interactions of Epiceram

Tingling at the application site can be commonly experienced after applying Epiceram emulsion. It is supposed to subside on its own within a few minutes after applying the drug, but inform your doctor at once if this persists or worsens. Also seek medical attention at once if you develop severe pain, irritation, inflammation or redness at the site of application.

Some patients may develop symptoms of an allergic reaction after applying Epiceram. Such symptoms include hives, facial swelling, severe dizziness or trouble breathing. Stop using the drug at once if you develop any of these symptoms. Seek medical help if any of these persist even after discontinuing the application.

Since Epiceram is applied topically, it is not supposed to interact with any oral or injectable medicines. However, it would be better to inform your doctor about all the prescription and non-prescription drugs, herbal preparations and health supplements you are using at present. Based on this information, he or she will be able to decide whether this drug is right for you or not.

Warnings & Precautions of Epiceram

Your doctor will not recommend you to buy Epiceram if you are allergic to any of its ingredients. Although the ingredients in the drug are non-toxic, it is meant to be used topically only, and should not be ingested. Wash the area properly with water if the emulsion gets into your ears, eyes, nose, or mouth, as severe irritation may occur.

Epiceram does not contain any sunscreen. Therefore, you will have to use a sunscreen too along with the drug while going out. If you are going to receive a radiation therapy, your doctor will advise you not to apply Epiceram before at least 4 hours of therapy.
