Actinic keratosis steroid cream

The only prerequisite before buying a cream for treating keratosis is visiting a dermatologist for observation and provision of a prescription. Afterwards, there are many drug stores where the cream can be purchased. The cost of creams used in keratosis treatment is also relatively affordable compared with other methods of treating the conditions. Topical creams have been proven to be very good in treating senile keratosis. Compared to other methods of treating keratosis, creams have very little risk of causing scarring on the affected areas.

Sun Protection Factors (SPF) are a useful guide to the efficacy of a sunscreen. In New Zealand most manufacturers adhere to the requirements of a voluntary Australian and New Zealand Standard in which the labelled SPF can be up to 50+ (AS/NZS 2604:2012). The SPF is calculated from in-vivo testing, and is the ratio of the time for the skin to burn when exposed to solar simulating UVR with the sunscreen at a thickness of 2mg/cm 2 , compared without the sunscreen. Thus white skin that normally burns in 10 minutes will burn in 150 minutes (2 ½ hours) with SPF 15 sunscreen, however often it is reapplied. In general, sunscreens are much less effective than predicted by their SPF number as they are applied significantly less thickly than is tested and are rubbed, sweated or washed off.

  • Urticaria, also known as hives, is common, and affects about 20% of people (one in 5 people) at some point in their lives. Urticaria consists of pink or white raised areas of skin resembling nettle rash, known as wheals (also spelled weals), which are usually itchy.  The wheals are often round or ring-shaped. Wheals can also appear as lines when the skin is firmly stroked. They can appear anywhere on the skin. Individual wheals typically disappear of their own accord within 24 hours without a trace, although the course of the condition is longer.  
  • Angioedema is characterised by deeper swelling in the skin, which may take over 24 hours to clear. It is not usually itchy and can affect the lips and tongue. Some patients have one or the other condition, others have both.
