Buy E45 Cream Online UK

E45 is a moisturising cream that is used for dry skin conditions such as:

  • dermatitis
  • eczema
  • ichthyosis
  • psoriasis
  • sunburn

The cream is free from perfume, dermatologically tested and suitable for people with sensitive skin. E45 cream can be used by the whole family.

Moisturisers like E45 are beneficial for all types of dry skin, especially eczema, which worsens when the skin is left to dry out.

E45 is available as a cream or a lotion. Creams are typically preferred by those with dry skin, while lotions are more suitable for people with oily skin.

If you are unsure which formulation is best for you, speak to your doctor or ask a pharmacist.

E45 moisturising cream is readily available from pharmacies and supermarkets, as well as reputable online suppliers such as Prescription Doctor.

Our pharmacy stocks a select range of popular treatments for eczema, dermatitis, and other skin conditions. Every item is dispatched from our UK pharmacy pharmacy - based in the north of England - in discreet packaging to ensure your privacy.

How Does E45 Cream Work?

When used on a daily basis, E45 Cream helps to restore the skin’s smoothness, suppleness, and flexibility by assisting the skin in retaining moisture. This decreases the appearance of redness and scaling, while reducing the itching sensation associated with common skin conditions.

E45 Cream contains light liquid paraffin, white soft paraffin, and anhydrous lanolin (which comes from sheep’s wool).

These three ingredients form a protective layer on the outermost layer of skin. They prevent water from evaporating away from the skin, allowing the skin to remain hydrated.

How Do I Use E45 Cream?

Always follow the instructions provided by your doctor, pharmacist, or the patient information leaflet that comes with your medicine.

Apply E45 Cream or Lotion to the affected regions of skin 2 or 3 times a day.

Before you can use the pump, unlock the pump by twisting it, and then press the pump a few times until it dispenses a consistent amount of E45 Cream.

  1. Dispense the cream into your hand.
  2. Apply the E45 Cream to the skin and gently and massage it in.
  3. Wash your hands after applying the cream (unless you are applying the cream to your hands).

Avoid rubbing the cream in vigorously as this this can irritate the skin.

Even when the skin has healed from diseases like eczema, applying a moisturiser on a daily basis can help to prevent flare-ups.

If your skin does not improve or worsens after using E45 Cream, speak to your doctor or a pharmacist.

Frequently Asked Questions

What should I do if I forget to use E45 Cream when I should?

E45 is not a prescribed medication and can be used whenever you require it. Because of this, if you forget to use it when you normally do, you can simply apply the cream as soon as you remember.

What should I do if I apply too much E45 Cream?

If you apply too much E45 Cream, you can use a paper towel or a tissue to wipe away any excess. Dispose the tissue in the bin. Using too much E45 Cream is unlikely to cause you harm.

Will E45 Cream impact my ability to drive or operate machinery?

E45 Cream will not impact your ability to drive or operate machinery. However, getting E45 cream in your eye may cause irritation and blurred vision. If you get E45 cream in your eyes, avoid driving or operating machinery until you feel safe to do so.

Can I use E45 Cream alongside other topical treatments?

If you are using other topical treatments for skin conditions, you should speak to your doctor or a pharmacist before using E45 in conjunction.

Moisturisers, such as E45, can cause other topical treatments to be absorbed more quickly through the skin, or dilute other medicated skincare products, reducing their effectiveness.

It is best to wait at least 30 minutes after applying E45 cream before using any other moisturising cream or lotion.

Where can I buy E45 Cream?

E45 cream can be bought from high street pharmacies and supermarkets, as well as online. You don’t need a prescription to buy E45 cream online or in-store.

If you can’t get to your local pharmacy to pick up E45 cream, you can buy it online from Prescription Doctor. We offer a fast and discreet delivery service on orders approved before 3pm on weekdays.
