Lac-Hydrin is a type of medication which is used to treat scaly, dry skin. It is also used to relieve the itching associated with certain types of skin conditions.
Lac-Hydrin comes in the form of a cream and is applied, as needed, to the areas of skin requiring treatment. Be sure to follow the prescription which is clearly set out by your doctor. Never apply more or less than what has been prescribed specifically to you.
Some of the common side effects users may experience when using Lac-Hydrin include burning and stinging sensations upon application of the cream. Some of the side effects which have been associated with this medication, but are less common include dry skin and rashes. If you experience more severe side effects, contact your doctor (or other medical professional) immediately for assistance.
Occasionally, Lac-Hydrin will be prescribed for other purposes, as directed by your doctor.
