Introduction

Hexilak Gel is a combination medicine used in the treatment of burns. It helps to reduce inflammation, redness, pain, burning sensation, and also promotes wound healing. It works by stopping the growth of microorganisms and killing the existing ones that cause the infection.

Hexilak Gel is for external use only. It should be applied as per dose and duration suggested by the doctor. Applying it at the same time every day will help you remember to use it. The affected area should be clean and dry before application of the medicine. You must wash your hands thoroughly before and after applying this medicine. Do not stop using it until you have finished the complete course, even when you feel better.

It is generally safe to use medicine with no common side effects. Avoid direct contact with eyes, nose, or mouth. If accidental exposure occurs, rinse immediately with plenty of water. Inform your doctor if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.

Uses of Hexilak Gel

Benefits of Hexilak Gel

In Burns

Hexilak Gel helps in the prevention and treatment of infections during treatment of burns. It is also used as an antiseptic in minor cuts and abrasions. It kills the infectious microorganisms, reduces inflammation symptoms such as burning sensation, irritation and pain. This promotes healing of the burns/wounds. Continue using it as directed by the doctor to get maximum benefit.

In Stretch Marks

Stretch marks happen when the skin is pulled by rapid growth or stretching. Most commonly they are seen in areas like belly, buttocks, breasts, hips or thighs. They can be a concern for aesthetic reasons and using Hexilak Gel can help in quick recovery. Using this cream can improve the appearance of stretch marks. It also keeps the skin healthy and moisturized, which can stop further development of stretch marks and also promotes healing of the existing ones. The improvement usually takes a few weeks to be noticeably visible, so keep using it as advised by the doctor.

Side effects of Hexilak Gel

Most side effects do not require any medical attention and disappear as your body adjusts to the medicine. Consult your doctor if they persist or if you’re worried about them

This medicine is for external use only. Use it in the dose and duration as advised by your doctor. Check the label for directions before use. Clean and dry the affected area and apply the gel. Wash your hands after applying, unless hands are the affected area.

How Hexilak Gel works

Hexilak Gel is a combination of three medicines. Allium Cepa is an herb extract that shows antibacterial action on the burnt wounds. It kills the microorganisms to prevent the wound from getting infected. Allantoin is a skin protectant. It promotes the production of collagen (protein) fibers for faster wound healing. It also provides moisture to the skin and helps to resolve scar marks. Heparin is an anticoagulant. However, it shows anti-inflammatory action when used in this combination. It helps to reduce symptoms of inflammation such as redness, pain, redness, burning sensation, etc. that occurs in the wounds. It also accelerates the healing process of the wounds resulting in smooth healed skin without scars or contractures (hard or tight scars).
