Why is Lac-hydrin prescribed?
Ammonium lactate (Lac-hydrin) lotion is prescribed for the treatment of xerosis (dry skin) and ichthyosis vulgaris (an inherited skin condition where dead skin cells pile up to form thick and dry scales on the skin).
What does it do?
Dry skin can be caused by several factors such as the weather and harsh soaps. Symptoms may include itching, redness, and roughness of the skin. Lac-hydrin belongs to a drug class called alpha-hydroxy acids and it works by hydrating the skin and relieves itching of the skin temporarily.
How should I apply it?
Lac-hydrin and its generic equivalents are currently available as a 12% lotion. Avoid getting Lac-hydrin into your eyes or mouth.
Wash your hands thoroughly before and after (except when you are treating a hand condition) handling the medication. Shake it gently before use. Apply a small amount to the area to be treated and rub it in gently.
The dosage strength depends on every patient’s condition and the doctor’s prescription. It is imperative that you do not self-medicate and only use this drug after consulting with your doctor or pharmacist to determine the best dosage and dosing schedule for the treatment of your condition.
What if I missed a dose?
The desired effects of prescribed medications will only be achieved if used properly. As much as possible, strictly follow your doctor’s prescribed dosing schedule. However, if you miss a dose, apply it immediately and adjust the time of your next dose depending on your doctor’s advice. Never apply two doses at the same time just to make up for your missed dose.
What are the special precautions before applying Lac-hydrin?
Inform your doctor about all the medications you are taking, your current and previous medical history, and any allergic reactions to Lac-hydrin or any other ingredients included in the manufacture of this medication.
Applying Lac-hydrin can cause your skin to be more sensitive to sunlight. Avoid exposing yourself to excessive amounts of sunlight and wear protective clothing, sunscreen, and use sunglasses when going outdoors.
