Patient Reviews: How Adex Gel Has Made a Difference

Buy Adex Gel From a UK Pharmacy

Adex Gel is a topical emollient with an anti-inflammatory to combat redness and inflammation in the skin. It is effective at treating dry skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis.

You can get Adex Gel without a prescription from Prescription Doctor's UK pharmacy. We ensure all products are dispatched in plain packaging to ensure your privacy.

Adex Gel is available in 100g tubes, which are ideal for travelling, and a 500g pump pack for your home.

How Does Adex Gel Work?

Adex contains hydrating substances like glycerol and liquid paraffin. These ingredients help to retain moisture in the skin, reduce dryness and allow the skin to stay supple and soft.

Adex Gel also contains a mild pain reliever called trolamine. This is used in many other gels and creams for mild muscle and joint pain.

A vitamin B3 derivative called nicotinamide within Adex Gel helps to build proteins that protect the skin from damage.

When used regularly, Adex Gel relieves irritation and discomfort while also rehydrating the skin and protecting it from further damage by forming a protective layer on the surface of the skin.

Unlike some other gels and creams that treat skin dryness and redness, Adex Gel is steroid-free.

How long does Adex Gel take to work?

You should start to notice an improvement in your condition within a few days of using Adex Gel. If you do not notice any improvement, or if your symptoms worsen with the first 2 to 4 weeks, discontinue using Adex Gel and speak to your doctor or a pharmacist.

How To Use Adex Gel?

Always follow the instructions found in the patient information leaflet.

You can read the patient information leaflet for Adex Gel online.

Adex Gel can be applied to the skin 3 times a day for up to 4 weeks at a time.

To unlock the pump bottle, turn the spout of the pump counter-clockwise.

Gently massage the gel into and around the affected areas of skin. The gel is absorbed by the skin quickly and gets to work quickly.

Avoid rubbing the gel in vigorously as this can further irritate your skin.

Do not apply Adex Gel to cuts, grazes, open wounds or infected skin.

Always wash your hands after applying Adex Gel.

One you have finished using the pump, rotate the top of the pump clockwise to lock the pump.

You can use Adex Gel for as long as required to treat your dry skin.

If you do not notice an improvement in your condition within 2 or 4 weeks of using Adex Gel, stop using it and speak to your doctor or a pharmacist.

Speak to your doctor before using Adex Gel if you are using other topical treatments, including corticosteroids.

What should I do if I forget to use Adex Gel?

Adex Gel is used as and when needed. If you forget to use it, use it as soon as you remember, unless it is near the time for applying your next dose. In this case, you should skip the missed dose and continue to use Adex Gel as instructed.

Do not apply more Adex Gel to make up for a missed dose.

What should I do if I accidentally used too much Adex Gel?

If you accidentally apply too much Adex Gel, simply wipe away the excess with a tissue and discard it in the bin.

Using more Adex Gel than recommended is unlikely to cause serious harm, but can increase your risk of side effects.

Adex Gel Side Effects And Cautions

Before you begin using Adex Gel, read the patient information leaflet enclosed with your treatment. The patient information leaflet contains instructions on how to use, store and dispose of Adex Gel, as well as further information regarding the product's safety.

If you have any concerns about the information presented within the patient information leaflet, you can discuss them with our online medical team by using the "my chats" feature under your Prescription Doctor account.

Who should not use Adex Gel?

Adex Gel is not suitable for everyone.

If you are unsure whether Adex Gel is suitable for you, speak to your doctor or pharmacist.

Adex Gel may interfere with topical corticosteroid treatments or calcineurin inhibitors. If you are using these treatments, speak to your doctor before using Adex Gel.

  • Tingling

These side effects usually occur where you apply the gel, and typically disappear over time as you continue to use the product.

If the side effects listed above do not improve after a few minutes, or worsen, speak to your doctor immediately.

Report any side effects you experience - regardless of whether they are listed above or in the patient information leaflet - to your doctor or a pharmacist.

If you experience the signs of an allergic reaction after using Adex Gel:

  • Stop using Adex Gel

Other safety information

Inform our online medical team of all other medicines you are currently taking, including those bought over the counter or prescribed by your doctor. You should also mention any health and herbal supplements you are taking.

Warning: Adex Gel contains liquid paraffin, which is highly flammable. It's important to wash any clothing, bedding, or towels that come into contact with the gel. Keep away from naked flames and ignition sources to reduce the risk of fire.

Do not use Adex Gel past the expiry date printed on the packaging.

Store Adex Gel in the original packaging below 25°C.

Always keep Adex Gel out of sight and reach from children and pets.

Do not dispose of Adex Gel in household or water waste, as this can harm the environment. Ask your local pharmacy to dispose of any unwanted or expired medicine on your behalf.

Never share your medicine with anybody else - even if they are experiencing the same symptoms or have been diagnosed with the same condition as you.
