About Care Calamine Lotion  

Care Plus Calamine Lotion is a mild astringent and antiseptic, designed to relieve the symptoms of mild sunburn and minor skin conditions, including itchy skin and minor allergic reactions.

Calamine lotion evaporates as it dries, lifting away heat from the skin to soothe sunburn and the itching of minor reactions. It also acts as an astringent, reducing swelling to allow natural blood flow to carry heat away from the affected area, and as an antiseptic to prevent any infection from taking hold.

Calamine Lotion relieves the symptoms of itchy, red skin - however, it is not an antihistamine, nor will it prevent allergic reactions from progressing. If you suspect you are having an unexpected allergic reaction, seek immediate medical advice.

FAQ

How does calamine lotion work?

Calamine lotion works in two major ways; as an astringent, and as an antiseptic.

An astringent, such as calamine, causes the skin’s cells to retract, shirking down to increase blood pressure and increase blood flow away from the swollen area. This carries warmer blood away, creating a cooling effect.

An antiseptic, such as zinc oxide, helps to kill bacteria, keeping skin clean and preventing infection. This is especially important, as scratching the skin when it is itchy can cause damage, and allow bacteria access to your skin.

Can you sleep with calamine lotion on?

Yes - applying calamine overnight is a great way to remove hives and spots. However, this may be too drying for some skin types, particularly those with sensitive skin.
