FAQ

What is the ingredient of Psoriderm Cream?

Psoriderm cream contains two active ingredients, distilled coal tar and lecithin.

How does Psoriderm Cream work?
Let's break down Psoriderm Cream's active ingredients:

Coal tar has mild antiseptic and anti-inflammatory effects and relieves itching. It is also absorbed into the skin cells and is thought to inhibit DNA replication in these cells. This slows down cell division and stops the cells from multiplying excessively. In turn, this reduces the thickening and scaling of the skin and clears up psoriasis plaques.

Coal tar may also work by breaking down keratin, a protein that forms part of the skin structure. This helps the skin cells shed from the treated area, thus reducing the thickening and scaling of the psoriasis plaques.

Lecithin is a phospholipid that is included in this medicine to soften psoriasis scales and enhance the absorption of the coal tar into the skin cells.

How do I use Psoriderm Cream?

The cream should be applied to the affected areas of skin or scalp once or twice daily, or as directed by your doctor.
