What else are some of the ingredients in this product used for if used in medicine?  

How Does Ichthammol Work?
Ichthammol and zinc oxide are among frequently used local dermatological medication in children (with regard to its safety even when applied long-term). Ichthammol (ichtamol) is a mixture of ingredients obtained by the sulphonation of bituminous oils. Traditionally, it was obtained by the distillation of fossil slate. It has anti-itching, anti-inflammatory, keratoplastic, antiseborrheic and slightly antiseptic effects. It is slightly irritating, has low sensitizing potential, does not desensitize the skin when exposed to light. However, it has an unpleasant distinct odor and a brown-black color. Ichthammol is used in the treatment of sub-acute forms of eczema (mainly atopic), seborrheic and perioral dermatitis, for acute appearances of psoriasis, lichen ruber planus, pityriasis rosea and for acne vulgaris. Ichthammol has a similarly favorable curing effect as pix lithantracis (coal tar), without its undesired side effects (toxic influence on the liver and kidneys, local carcinogenicity when used long-term in higher concentrations).

How does Guaiazulene work?
Guaiazulenum (guajazulene) is a mixture of alkylated azulenes. They are the main active ingredients in chamomile flowers. Guaiazulene has slightly anti-itching, astringent, anti-inflammatory and bacterio-static effects. It promotes granulation and epithelialization.

How does Zincum oxydatum work?
Zincum oxydatum (zinc oxide, zinc flower) is an amorphous, fine, odor-free, white powder. It is acquired from natural zincite material. It has cooling, slightly astringent and mildly anti-septic effects. Zinc oxide is a part of the powders, suspensions, liquid powders and soft pastes, which are oftentimes used in children’s dermatology. Zinc oxide has a soothing effect and significantly promotes skin’s regeneration. Zinc products also have a positive effect on the healing process.

What is a creampaste?
A special galenic form of a so called creampaste, used as an intermediary in Ichtopic®, is characterized by the containing all 3 basic galenic phases – water, fat and solid. For this reason, it is well applied to wet lesions and into areas of moist. The creampaste does not cause an undesired occlusive effect in the area of application, as traditional pastes. On the contrary, it dries out and cools treated foci.

How to use Ichtopic® creampaste:
Apply a thin, equal layer onto carefully cleaned and dry skin. Ideally, use an medicinal anti-septic soap without sodium lauryl sulfate (for example, Cutosan® wash gel) for cleaning the skin. Apply a thin layer 2-5 times per day onto the whole area of the affected skin. It is possible to use the product on newborns. A mild drying out of the treated areas is part of the effects. Therefore, we recommend to combine it with regular treatment of a soothing emollient (for example, Calcis®).

For external use only. Avoid contact with eyes. If there is no improvement of the skin or if skin irritation occurs, stop using the product and consult your physician or pharmacist. Do not use in case of an allergy or hyper-sensitivity to any one of the product’s ingredients.
