Cetavlex® is an antiseptic cream for skin disorders such as minor wounds, minor burns, abrasions and napkin rash. It contains cetrimide, an effective antiseptic which has been used in the UK for many years.
Studies with cetrimide have shown it to be active against a wide range of bacteria, both Gram positive and Gram negative, including Staph. aureus the commonest cause of infection in wounds and burns.
How should I use Cetavlex®?
Apply liberally to the affected area. In some cases it may be necessary to cover the wound or burn with a clean dressing. Consult your doctor if symptoms persist or there is any worsening of the wound or burn.
