Chemical Name :
Exorex Information : Exorex is used to treat Psoriasis. Coal tar is mildly antiseptic and relieves itching. It also acts as a keratolytic, which works to break down a protein which forms part of the skin structure called keratin. Skin thickening occurs due to the deposition of keratin. Coal tar helps to reduce the excessive hardening, thickening and scaling of the skin.
Exorex Lotion is the most important product within the Exorex Management System as it is indicated for the treatment of psoriasis. The patented formulation contains 1% prepared coal tar in a base of esterified essential fatty acids.
Although you may notice an improvement within a few weeks, it can sometimes take longer for improvement to occur. Remember no two sufferers are the same.
