Skin cream could pose "serious health risks", Health Canada warns

(CP) - Health Canada has issued a warning about a skin cream for babies and children it says could pose ``serious health risks.''

The agency says PureCare Herbal Cream, which is promoted as a natural treatment for eczema and psoriasis in children, contains a prescription steroid and another ingredient not declared on the label.

Health Canada says these ingredients may cause skin irritation, dehydration or increased blood pressure.

PureCare Herbal Cream was sold online at purecareskin-dot-com and through an in-person distribution network.
