Buy Cetraben Cream and Ointment Online

Cetraben protects the skin and locks in moisture to soften skin and keep it hydrated. The treatment is available over-the-counter without a prescription from UK pharmacies, as well as online from Prescription Doctor.

You can use Cetraben to treat dry skin conditions such as:

Cetraben is available as either a cream or ointment in large longer-lasting packs and small pocket-sized pumps that you can carry with you wherever you go.

When you use moisturisers such as Cetraben on a regular basis, you can prevent your dry skin condition from flaring up and lessen your need for using a corticosteroid.

Cetraben is available as a bath additive, too. Cetraben Bath Additive is an emollient that forms a protective barrier over the skin to lock in moisture and prevent the skin from drying out.

With Prescription Doctor’s handy online pharmacy service, you can get Cetraben delivered directly to your door via a discreet next-day delivery when you place your order before 3pm on weekdays.

Every product we offer is dispatched from a UK based pharmacy in discreet packaging to ensure your privacy. Our online prescribers are at hand to discuss our treatments and your condition with you.


How To Use Cetraben?

Cetraben cream and ointment are topical treatments that are applied directly to the affected area of skin.

Do not use Cetraben on areas of skin that are infected, broken, or bleeding.

Gently massage Cetraben into your skin, rubbing in the same direction that your hair grows.

Unless you are applying Cetraben to your hands, you should wash your hands after applying the cream or ointment.

Cetraben is quickly absorbed by your skin.

Avoid rubbing the product in vigorously as this can lead to irritation.

If you are unsure how to use Cetraben, speak to your doctor or a pharmacist for advice.

How often can I use Cetraben?

You can use Cetraben as often as required to manage your dry skin.

For some people, using Cetraben twice a day - morning and night - is sufficient to keep their symptoms at bay. Others may find they need to use it more frequently to manage their skin condition.

Cetraben can be used on a daily basis for chronic skin conditions, and to treat flare-ups of eczema.

What should I do if I forget to use Cetraben when I should?

Cetraben is used as and when needed. If you forget to use it, simply use it as soon as you can and continue to use it normally.

You don’t need to apply more Cetraben to your skin if you forget to use it.

What should I do if I apply too much Cetraben?

Applying more Cetraben than required is unlikely to cause you harm. Simply wipe away any excess with a clean tissue and discard it in the bin.

You should use just enough of the cream or ointment to cover the affected area.

What should I do if I accidentally get Cetraben in my eyes?

Take care when applying Cetraben not to get the cream or ointment in your eyes.

If you accidentally get Cetraben in your eyes, rinse your eyes with water immediately. Seek medical attention if irritation persists.
