What is Solarcaïne and when is it used?
Solarcaïne Lotion is a local analgesic and antipruritic preparation and is used for mild lesions associated with sunburn, insect bites, skin abrasions and irritations, and first-degree burns (minor burns).
Solarcaïne is easy to apply to the skin, non-greasy and non-staining.
When should Solarcaïne not be used?
If you are hypersensitive to the ingredients, you should not use Solarcaïne. Solarcaïne should not be used on skin injuries or weeping skin symptoms.
When is caution required when using Solarcaïne?
Solarcaïne may only be used on infants and children under the age of 2 years on the instructions and under the supervision of a doctor . Solarcaïne should not get in your eyes or mouth. If irritation or rash occurs, use should be discontinued. Solarcaïne should not be used on large areas or over a long period of time. In the case of purulent and infected wounds, you should consult your doctor. The risk of absorption through the skin is increased in case of skin inflammation (e.g. sunburn). Inform your doctor, pharmacist or druggist if you suffer from other illnesses, have allergies or are taking other medicines (including those you bought yourself) or using them externally!
Can Solarcaïne be used during pregnancy or breastfeeding?
There are no controlled studies available in pregnant women. For this reason, Solarcaïne should be used with caution during pregnancy. As a precaution, you should avoid taking medicines during pregnancy and breastfeeding or ask your doctor, pharmacist or druggist for advice.
Lidocaine passes into breast milk and Solarcaïne should therefore not be used during breast-feeding.
