About Crystacide Cream (hydrogen peroxide)

  • What is Crystacide Cream?

    Crystacide Cream is a topical medication that contains hydrogen peroxide as its active ingredient. It is commonly used for its antiseptic properties, which help prevent infection and promote wound healing.

    This cream is often applied to minor cuts, scrapes, and burns to clean the affected area and prevent bacterial growth. It can also be used to treat acne and other skin conditions where bacteria play a role in the development of lesions.

    What does Crystacide Cream do?

    Crystacide Cream (hydrogen peroxide) serves several purposes:

    1. Antiseptic Action: One of the primary uses of hydrogen peroxide cream is its antiseptic properties. When applied to minor cuts, scrapes, and burns, it helps clean the wound by bubbling away debris and dead tissue. This cleansing action helps reduce the risk of infection and promotes healing.
    2. Disinfection: Hydrogen peroxide cream disinfects wounds by killing bacteria, viruses, and fungi that may be present on the skin's surface. By reducing the microbial load on the wound, it further aids in preventing infection.
    3. Treatment of Acne: Hydrogen peroxide cream is sometimes used to treat acne because of its ability to kill the bacteria that contribute to acne breakouts. When applied topically to affected areas, it can help reduce the number of acne-causing bacteria and improve the appearance of the skin.

    Overall, hydrogen peroxide cream is a versatile topical medication commonly used for wound care, acne treatment, and skin disinfection. However, it's important to use it as directed and consult a healthcare professional if you have any questions or concerns about its use.

    Crystacide Cream alternatives

    There are several alternatives to Crystacide Cream (hydrogen peroxide) for wound care and skin disinfection. Some of the commonly used alternatives include:

    Chlorhexidine Solution: Chlorhexidine is an antiseptic solution that is effective against a wide range of bacteria, viruses, and fungi. It is often used as an alternative to hydrogen peroxide for wound cleansing and skin disinfection.

    Antibiotic Ointments: Antibiotic ointments containing ingredients such as fucidin and Mupirocin are often used to prevent infection in minor cuts, scrapes, and burns. These ointments work by killing bacteria and preventing them from multiplying.

    Oral Antibiotics: If the condition is more severe we can offer oral flucloxacillin treatment which can be effective for treating impetigo and cellulitis

  • How to use Crystacide Cream

    To effectively use Crystacide Cream, follow these steps:

    1. Clean the affected area: Gently wash the affected skin with mild soap and water. Pat it dry with a clean towel.
    2. Apply a thin layer: Use a clean fingertip or sterile applicator to apply a thin layer of Crystacide Cream directly onto the affected area. Ensure complete coverage but avoid excessive application.
    3. Cover (if necessary): Depending on your healthcare provider's recommendation or the severity of the wound, you may need to cover the treated area with a sterile dressing or bandage. This helps protect the area and keeps the cream in place.
    4. Repeat as directed: Follow your healthcare provider's instructions regarding the frequency of application. Typically, Crystacide Cream is applied once or twice daily, but your provider may recommend a different schedule based on your condition.
    5. Wash hands: After applying the cream, thoroughly wash your hands to remove any residue and prevent spreading the medication to unintended areas.
    6. Continue treatment: Use Crystacide Cream for the full duration of the prescribed treatment, even if symptoms improve before completion. Stopping prematurely may allow the infection to return.
    7. Monitor for reactions: While using Crystacide Cream, watch for any signs of allergic reactions or skin irritation, such as redness, itching, or swelling. If you experience any adverse effects, discontinue use and consult your healthcare provider.

    The usual dosage for Crystacide Cream to treat impetigo is apply to the affected area TWO to THREE times daily for FIVE to SEVEN days. Always adhere to the specific instructions provided by your healthcare provider or included with the medication.
