Dermalac Lotion is a topical medication used to treat dry, scaly skin conditions such as xerosis, ichthyosis vulgaris and can also help relieve itching from these conditions. It can be used to help smooth and soften rough skin on the feet, elbows, and knees. In addition, Dermalac Lotion is used to soften and smoothen the appearance of skin, particularly rough and dry areas such as elbows and feet.

Dermalac Lotion contains 12% Ammonium Lactate. It works by exfoliating the top layer of dead skin cells and increasing the water content in the skin. The Ammonium Lactate in the lotion acts as a humectant, which attracts and retains moisture in the skin. This helps to moisturize and soften dry, scaly skin.

Use and Dosage

To use Dermalac Lotion (Ammonium Lactate), apply it to the affected area(s) of the skin and rub it in gently. Wash your hands before and after applying ammonium lactate. Shake the bottle well before each time you apply it. For the best results, apply ammonium lactate every day. The lotion is typically applied once or twice daily, or as directed by a healthcare professional. Avoid applying the lotion to open wounds and consult with a healthcare professional before use if pregnant or breastfeeding. As always, follow the instructions provided by your healthcare professional or the product label.

Avoiding hot water and harsh skin products can also help relieve dry skin. Ask your pharmacist for recommendations on non-irritating, mild cleansers to use.
