A MoneySaving Dermatologist…

I needed to see a dermatologist the other week (don’t worry nothing too yucky), and whilst there we were talking about the exorbitant costs of some medications.

Her biggest bug bear was about Aqueous Menthol Cream which is sold to calm itching; apparently some versions can cost a ridiculous £60 a tube. Yet if you simply go to the chemist and buy a tube of Aqueous cream (costs around £1) and mix it with 1-2% of menthol vapour rub (costs around £2) it’s virtually the same thing.

Now that’s my type of consultant!
