1. WHAT EMCREM IS AND WHAT IT IS
USED FOR
Emcrem is an emollient, moisturising and
protective cream. It helps to smooth, soothe
and hydrate the skin and prevent moisture
loss. Emcrem is used to treat red, inflamed,
damaged, dry or chapped skin in adults and
children, and to protect raw skin areas. If you
suffer from a skin condition called eczema and
your skin is dry, the cream can be applied
before having a bath to prevent your skin from
drying any further.
Emcrem can also be used during or after
treatment with topical steroid creams, gels or
ointments.
