This medication is used on the skin to treat the itching, scaling, and flaking due to skin conditions such as psoriasis or seborrheic dermatitis. Coal tar belongs to a class of drugs known as keratoplastics. It works by causing the skin to shed dead cells from its top layer and slow down the growth of skin cells. This effect decreases scaling and dryness. Coal tar can also decrease itchiness from these skin conditions.*
Green tea is a popular beverage for people trying to increase their intake of antioxidants. Lotions made with green tea extract are also beneficial, as they provide your skin with free-radical-fighting compounds that may reduce acne and wrinkles and make your skin smoother and healthier. Because the most significant side effect of using topical green tea products is minor irritation, green tea creams can be a safe, affordable treatment for a variety of skin conditions.
Apply daily to twice daily to affected areas.
Children and pregnant or lactating women should consult their healthcare practitioner prior to use.
