In these unprecedented times due to COVID-19 we are listening to the latest advice from the government and their health specialists. We are continuing to work in these challenging times so that we can serve the needs of our customers.
Please note that we are receiving a particularly high volume of orders, enquiries, telephone calls and emails. With a depleted team we are working exceptionally hard to process orders and respond to customer enquiries. Unfortunately it is currently taking longer to process and dispatch orders than usual, so please allow up to 5 working days for shipment.
Please also note that postal services and couriers are experiencing similar challenges so please allow longer delivery times than usual. We would be grateful if you can be patient and not contact us regarding your order before these times are up so we can reduce the pressure on our customer service team.
Thank you for your patience and understanding.
Keep well and stay safe.
Lanacane anaesthetic cooling cream brings relief from the symptoms of minor pain, itching and irritation in localised skin conditions, such as insect bites, nettle stings and heat rash. The Lanacane range also has Lancane Cream 30g, Lanacane Anti-Chafing Gel 30g and Lanacane Medicated Body Powder 100g.
If the rash caused by sweat rash persists, a mild (1%) hydrocortisone cream may soothe the irritation.
Calamine (a mixture of zinc oxide and iron oxide) has a cooling and soothing effect on the skin and is used to provide symptomatic relief from itching of the skin caused by sunburn, prickly heat and inflammation. Calamine also acts as a mild antiseptic and can help prevent infections caused by scratching.
If you would like some more information on sweat rash, please visit our sweat rash advice page, where we cover topics such as the causes, symptoms and treatment of sweat rash.
Excessive sweating can lead to an overgrowth of Candida albicans, a fungus naturally present on the skin. This can lead to a fungal skin infection commonly referred to as infected sweat rash (candidal intertrigo). Common sweat rash can often lead to such a condition.
