Itch Soothe general information

What is Itch Soothe used for?

Itch Soothe is a topical cream used to relieve itching and irritation of the skin caused by a variety of factors.  These include sunburn and heat rash; dry eczema, also known as atopic dermatitis and characterised by patches of dry itchy, thickened skin, itchy dermatitis, which can be a reaction to an irritant or allergy; allergic reactions such as rashes and hives; nettle rash; chickenpox; insect bites and stings.  Itch Soothe cream 10% is also used to treat scabies, which is caused by a parasitic mite, Sarcoptes scabiei that burrows into the skin and is transmitted by direct skin contact.  As the mite burrows, it causes intense itching and can also cause an allergic reaction with symptoms including a rash, seen as small red bumps on the limbs and trunk, which are usually very itchy; also nodules in the groin or armpit.  Burrow lines can also be seen at the site of infection, usually between the fingers, on the skin of the hands, feet, wrist, elbows, buttocks and genitals.  Itch Soothe provides symptomatic relief of itching and also removes scabies infestation.

Itch Soothe cream 10% contains crotamiton an antipruritic (anti itching) that is used to provide symptomatic relief of itching, and an acaricide that is used to treat scabies infestation.  Itching is a sensation caused by stimulation of nerve fibres in the skin by various mechanisms including chemical stimulation by histamine.  The transient receptor potential vanilloid 4 (TRPV4) channel is a calcium ion channel found in skin and in the sensory neurones of the peripheral nervous system that plays a role in stimulation the itch sensation.  The antipruritic effect of Crotamiton in Itch Soothe is thought to work by inhibiting TRPV4, which reduces the itch sensation1, 2.  Crotamiton in Itch Soothe also causes cooling of the skin as it evaporates resulting in counter-irritation, which is thought to contribute to its antipruritic effect.  As an acaricide Crotamiton in Itch Soothe is thought to work by blocking the motor system of the mites, which irreversibly blocks normal spontaneous movements that kills the scabies mite.  Crotamiton in Itch Soothe penetrates rapidly into the skin and is effective for 6-10 hours for relief of itching and for 3-5 days for treatment of scabies.
