Definition of Cream (pharmaceutical)

Cream (pharmaceutical) Definition from Encyclopedia Dictionaries & Glossaries
Wikipedia English - The Free Encyclopedia
A cream is a topical preparation usually for application to the skin. Creams for application to mucus membranes such as those of the rectum or vagina are also used. Creams may be considered pharmaceutical products as even cosmetic creams are based on techniques developed by pharmacy and unmedicated creams are highly used in a variety of skin conditions (dermatoses). The use of the Finger tip unit concept may be helpful in guiding how much topical cream is required to cover different areas.
