Epiceram emulsion is a steroid-free skin barrier that is used to treat dry skin and relieve the itching and burning associated with eczema and certain other skin disorders. Some of these skin conditions include radiation dermatitis, atopic dermatitis, irritant contact dermatitis, and other dermatoses.
This medication works by protecting and moisturizing the skin, which helps in relieving skin irritation. If there is no improvement within 10-14 days after applying this medication, you should reevaluate your Epiceram use. Use sunscreen liberally while using Epiceram.
Do not apply Epiceram within 4 hours before radiation therapy. You may experience a tingling sensation at the application site when you use this medication.
