Cream for bed sores is a type of ointment that is applied to the skin in order to help heal and prevent bed sores. Bed sores are a type of pressure ulcer that can occur when someone is confined to a bed or wheelchair for a prolonged period of time.
When pressure is applied to the skin for an extended period of time, it can cause the skin to break down and form an ulcer. Cream for bed sores can help to heal existing bed sores and prevent new ones from forming.

This healing cream is absolutely amazing. I first tried it a few weeks ago. I had some stubborn dried raised spots on my face for years. I’ve gone to the dermatologist for them and some were removed by freezing them.
Others would just not go away. I’ve tried every cream and ointment imaginable with little to no luck. Zinc oxide seemed to be the most relieving, but I decided to try this because of the reviews and my own research.
Calmoseptine is actually healing my spots and the thick raised spots have finally flattened. I’ve also used it on other hard to heal spots on my legs and bug bites. The face spots have caused me much emotional pain for so long and this cream has been almost a miracle for me.
I’m so glad that I tried it and will always keep it on hand. Especially because of the price it’s certainly worth a try. Highly recommend!!.
This ointment was given to us by a caregiver who tended to bedsores and other medical skin irritations. She said it cleared up issues in a day or two. And she was right. Summertime brings with it problems like chafing, sweat leading to irritations, bug bites etc.
Calmoseptine clears up most issues in one day! Its an amazing product with numerous applications. I had a small burn that was itchy and not responding to antibiotic cream. One application of calmoseptine helped heal the burn better than aloe.
I have been using this cream for 6 years. This is the product that works the absolute best for so many things. For instance, is my child has a tiny bit of red on or around her privates I use this. It doesn’t get worse.
It clears up quickly. My 2 year old has never had a diaper rash. We use it for big bites. We use it for rashes. I gift this for all baby showers with notes.
I first used Lanacane over 50 years ago, for sore places anywhere on the bodies of myself and my children. Instant relief from itching, sore skin, sunburn. I thought it had been discontinued long ago as I stopped seeing it in my local chemists.
So when I had excoriated skin following a colonoscopy I thought of Lanacane and how soothing it would be. I tried other products from my chemists but nothing relieved the pain and itching. I suddenly thought of the internet and to my joy there it was.
It was delivered the next day and the result was amazing, just like it used to be. So thank you, I will always keep a tube in my bathroom cabinet from now on.
I had been a faithful purchaser of the LARGE TUBES OF ORIGINAL LANACANE. The original formula, which is the BEST! Years ago, it quickly, virtually disappeared from the all retailer outlets n the United States.
Instead, a poor substitute with aloe was offered to customers. After using the awful substitute once, I never bought it agsin. I researched and found that I could buy it in Canadian Drug Stores. Then, once again, I was unable to purchase It Canadian Drug Stores, due to some idiotic law passed by the United States.
After a few years, once again i decided to look at the Canadian Pharmacies. When I found that the Canadian Pharmacies were still selling the ORIGINAL FORMULA, I clicked on the item and within a second, the Pharmacy flipped to EBay and it was available.
I bought as my as I thought I would need, even though I am paying the same amount for a small tube that I one paid for a LARGE TUBE! Obviously, I love the product. I am happy and relieved that I have access to the ORIGINAL FORMULA once again.
I feel a little ripped off that the tube is so small and the price should be lower. So, I guess I am forced to be grateful for small things (and I truly am) and it so it is what it is. Thanks, S.
I have medication I have to inject and since starting this medication I have been getting side effects on the injection site, and that’s extreme itching and swelling I tried a lot of creams some made no difference at all, Lanacane worked to stop the itching and lasted through the night.
Hydrocortisone cream temporary relieves itching caused by minor skin irritations, inflammations and rashes. Single-use, tamper-evident foil packets ensures sterility unless opened or damaged to help prevent cross-contamination.
Anti-itch cream is designed to be used as standalone first aid or as a refill for a kit (sold separately).
This review is for First Aid Only, not for the Hydrocortisone Cream itself. I ordered about 30 individual products for our first aid kits. Everything could have been shipped in one 10×12″ box. Instead, they were shipped in 8 boxes, some with only one tiny item in a box.
Tons and tons of bubble wrap. Huge waste! Not only that, but several of the items were smashed beyond recognition and had to be put in the shipping box that was (shipping box was undamaged). My company is considering changing our first aid kits and using a different company.
These individual packets of Hydrocortisone Cream are the perfect size to fit in a small first aid kit or even to carry in a pocket or backpack. I break out in hives from time to time and they usually start on my lower legs.
These packets contain enough cream for one application to both lower legs and it works pretty quickly. Good product.
I had added a tube of Hydrocortisone cream to my First Aid kit, since it is very useful, but didn’t come with any. Had to really rearrange things to get it to fit too. But now. I have these 25 individual packets that fit quite nicely in the kit!! Added bonus.
individual uses keeps everything sterile too!! Thank you very much!!.

I have been dealing with skin issues for the past year, come to find out I have mercury toxicity. My skin is burning, itching and dry. I tried a dozen different products to find relief and nothing worked.

This creamy ointment feels so much better than vaseline! It has been great for my feet and lips at night. I also like to slug my face with a thin layer of this before I go to sleep to make sure that my skin remains moisturized all night long.
It is a bit greasy so in the morning I wipe it off with a towel or tissue. After a few weeks of doing this my middle aged face looks younger and has a glow during the day. In case you are wondering what slugging is, slugging is the final step in your nighttime skin-care routine where you apply a petroleum-based occlusive over your skin to seal in the products while you sleep.
This ointment also has vitamin e and shea butter in it. Please Cetaphil do not discontinue this, or reformulate. Thank you!.
first of all, I was shocked to receive such a large quantity. super amazing. especially considering that a little really does go a LONG way. secondly, its unscented, which isn’t REAL important to me but I know it is for others.
I have chronic dry areas using this consistently for a couple days gave those spots life again, for a good chunk of time anyways. which was nice. the crease of my nose my ankles get so dry that they peel, flake, are itchy if I scratch flake the dead skin off its turns into a very uncomfortable raw patch.
the only downside of this product is that it’s a really heavy consistency. its kind of like Vaseline or petroleum jelly. though it did say to apply it liberally. also it does make my skin look VERY oily sweaty if I put it everywhere it kind of melts everywhere if I dont wash it off after an hour or 2.
overall great product. it really does help heal dry skin. I DEFINITELY would recommend this to someone who has tried many things that never seem to work or need a “quick fix” for dry skin.
Loved my @Cetaphil #voxbox 😍😍 I’ve tested the new #cetaphil healing ointment to protect dry and irritated skin, and it’s even recommended for people with eczema! I have sensitive skin especially on my arms, as this is the area where psoriasis, caused by stress, appears.
In my case it’s not that serious, I only “treat” with essential oils and creams to hydrate the affected region (the skin is a little red and dry) Since I started using it, I felt that the redness and the sensation of dry skin reduced a lot.
I also feel smoother and more hydrated skin. I already have my favorite for the winter! I’m also using my hands that always dry out from cleaning products and I’m in love! Now I can say I have princess hands!😍😂 #voxbox #cetaphil #inlove #selfcare #loveyourbody #loveskincare.
This ointment is the only solution I’ve found after 3. 5 years of searching for something to remove very stubborn nasal vesticulitis and folliculitus inside my lower nostrils. This includes manuka honey, iodine, tea tree, colloidal silver, etc.
As so many chronic infections do, the bacteria had formed into biofilms, which means they were encased in their own protective blanket which is impervious to almost anything. But not Terrasil. But two things to mention – as bacteria leave the biofilms they are active, so it seems like the infection is worse, but it isn’t – once having no protection the body can get rid of them easily (I sped this along with a bit of topical application of colloidal silver).
The second item is to be patient – it took a day to start seeing improvement, but over month to release the whole darn thing.
If anyone out there has leg ulcers, please try this! This is my 4th ulcer, 2 were treated by the wound clinic (very expensive), 1 by the doctor and now this one. The doctor saw this and put me on the same expensive product as before, this time I am allergic to the product and could not use.

Works better than all other products tried. I’ve had chronic post-nasal drip for decades, blow my nose a few dozen times a day. So almost 4 yr ago, during a sinus infection where I was blowing my nose even more, I developed tiny cracks in the ends of each nostril.
Soooo painful and haven’t gone away regardless what I’ve used. I’ve tried hydrogen peroxide & alcohol, I’ve tried daily applications of Neosporin or Vaseline, for weeks or months. Get small amount of relief until I start blowing my nose the next day and sore areas get very sore again.
First time I used this, I applied around the inside of each nostril before going to bed. Next morning, could not believe how soft my nostrils felt and there has been no pain when blowing my nose. So I’ve continued applying a small amount in the inside circumference of each nostril at bedtime for a couple more nights, total of 3 nights so far.
My nose looks and feels great. Can’t wait to try it on other issues like the little cracks around my fingernails that I get in the winter. Am going to stop applying Sudocrem to my nose for several days to see how long the good result lasts.
But even if I have to continue using the product indefinitely, at least I know the result will be awesome and I will be able to occasionally skip days. I did an internet search for “cracks in nostrils” and posts about this product came up which is how I heard about it.
This is similar to a product I used long ago in the U. S. , which is no longer available or at least I cannot locate it. If it is a true and perfect substitute, it would rate 5 stars. But I haven’t used it long enough to be able to say for sure, so I’m limiting my rating to 4 stars.
It’s use is for burns, wounds, rashes, and other unpleasant conditions of the skin, so obviously I am not keen to create opportunities to test it. Its major positive feature is that it is a sort of “Swiss Army Knife” ointment, good for a very broad range of things.
I have distributed part of this fairy large jar into a few smaller containers for my office, car, shop, and “EDC” / Travel gear so as to be ready for all these possible conditions in all spots.

To preface. I’m a 25 female. Natural light brown hair, bleached low maintenance blonde. Thick wavy frizzy hair that reaches the lower bottom of my back. Prone to split ends and breakage at the bottom of my hair.
No extensions. I wanted to add this so people with similar hair types can relate. So to start, I’m so torn on this shampoo. I tried it for 3 weeks and I do like that this shampoo and conditioner cuts down on my overall frizz and made my hair so much smoother and less likely to tangle which is exactly what I was looking for.
BUT there is some things about this shampoo I just can’t ignore. First off the smell, I just can’t get past it. It reminds me of a menthol cigarette. It just smells sooo minty and lingers after washing.
Some people may not mind the smell but if my shampoo is going to linger, I’d prefer it to smell like something other than strong mint and almost a tea tree smell. Second, when the conditioner sets for a couple minutes before rinsing out I’ve noticed that my back and neck where the product has been laying in my hair will get very cold and tingly.
Almost like how when you have a breath mint you get the same effect in your mouth but it’s on your body this time. This alone made me decide not to repurchase. I like my shower water very warm and I found myself constantly turning the heat up because while the conditioner set I would get extremely cold from the tingly feeling.
It can be overwhelming sometimes and linger even after washing the area thoroughly and drying off. I would assume if this was a shampoo and conditioner without the minty smell that I was having an allergic reaction to it but since it has that smell I just really don’t know if the tingle is intended or not.
And lastly, I’ve noticed a lot of small breakage at the top of my hair by my scalp. I’m not prone to breakage that high and only notice it after a fresh bleach every once and a while although it is usually very rare for me.
I should note that it has been 3 months since my last bleach since I am a low maintenance blonde and I was not using this product during my last bleach. I also take a lot measures to protect my hair that could be the cause of breakage that high.
So at this point only thing I’ve changed is this shampoo and conditioner. I’ve decided not to finish the rest of the bottle due to concerns about further breakage. This is just my experience. Some people seem to love it but it’s a no from me.
I hope this helps some people on the fence after reading conflicting reviews. I’ve switched to Joyco kpac reconstructing shampoo that has also given me the same desirable results so far with a much better smell, no breakage, and most importantly no tingly feeling on by skin.
I was skeptical at first about this product. I am one of those people that really cannot stand when my hair feels the slightest bit greasy after washing it. I used to use hempz moisture Shampoo and conditioner but unfortunately they don’t sell that kind at ulta.
I tried several shampoo and conditioners in the meantime including biolage, matrix, redken, and a few other small label brands all meant for color safe hair. While I found that these brands did the job, some of them left my hair feeling dirtier than before washing it.
I went out on a limb and tried pureologies hydrate and color safe line based off of reviews alone and the fact that the shampoo was sold out pretty much everywhere I tried to buy it. I ended up buying it online and it didn’t take long to arrive.
I must say that while the smell is not my favorite, a slight eucalyptus-ish peppermint scent, it is wonderful shampoo (and conditioner) that does not leave the slightest amount of residue in your hair.
It lathers great and you only need a small amount. My hair is the softest and most manageable than it has been in a long time. I have naturally wavy, coarse, and very thick hair that I dye dark brown and this does miracles for it.
I highly highly highly recommend this shampoo (and conditioner) if you can get past the not so enticing scent.
This shampoo and the conditioner was recommended by my new hair stylist since my hair is highlighted and is rather dry. Every time I go to a stylist it’s always the same thing “which shampoo do you use?” “You should be using better shampoos, your hair is really dry” so when this was recommended to me again and after seeing how soft my hair looked and felt and not to mention how clean it felt at the time, I decided to finally give it a try.
When my stylist used this on me, it smelt great. Very light and beautiful , when I started it using it, it smelled overwhelming strong of mint. So much so that my eyes would start to water and I am not a sensitive person to smell whatsoever so saying the smell is overwhelming is 100% my truth.
I thought well it’s okay, it worked so well on my hair, I can get past it. Slowly, I started to notice that my hair kept getting a little thinner in the scalp area. I didn’t think too much of it until it started to get worse and worse.
Now I can feel it all around my head and especially forehead. So much so that I could cry! This past week and a half, I have noticed that my hair has been shedding a lot, I notice that my hair falls everywhere and so easily! Just today I washed my hair with cold water (not super cold, but not warm) because I thought that maybe all of this was due to me washing my hair with warm to hot water.
Guess what ? My scalp is burning, it’s itchy and is super dry! I have noticed the burning sensation before but again, I blamed it on the hot water. Today I can feel it even worse. That’s when I decided to check the reviews and so many other people have been going through the same thing! Please do not buy this product, this and the conditioner.
I never leave bad reviews unless the product is super bad!! Like many others, my hair is usually thick and hope once I stop using this product, my hair can start to heal. Please note that I have been using the shampoo and conditioner since the very being of November of this year 2021, using it only 2x a week!! Not even a month and so few washes and it has caused so much already!.
