- Good public awareness of calamine lotion
Care Calamine Lotion has been trusted by families for many years as a mild astringent and antiseptic that relieves the symptoms of mild sunburn and minor skin conditions. It evaporates after being applied to the skin, which produces a cooling effect to ease any itchy feelings. This cooling effect helps to relieve sunburn. It is not considered likely to cause any undesirable effects during pregnancy. However, as with all medicines, women who are pregnant, might be pregnant or are breastfeeding, should talk to their doctor or pharmacist before using this product. The product may mask an x-ray picture so a doctor should also be consulted before having an x-ray.
Applied directly to the skin.
Recommended dose and dosage schedule
The product is suitable for use by adults, children and the elderly.
Apply gently with a pad of cotton wool to the affected parts as required.
