Reckitt Benckiser, manufacturer of E45, has welcomed the recommendation by the National Institute of Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) guidance on the use of emollients in atopic eczema in children. The guidelines state that children with the conditions should use up to 500g of emollient a week, even if the skin is clear of eczema. E45 cream, which contains anhydrous lanolin, white soft paraffin and light liquid paraffin,has been available in 500g packs for many years. Dr Mike Cork, commented: Larger amounts of emollients need to be used for those patients with atopic eczema to achieve the maximum health benefits and healthcare professionals should be educating their patients to do this.
