Description

Details

An antimicrobial emollient cream for the management of dry and pruritic skin conditions, especially eczema and dermatitis. The cream is suitable for direct application, and for use as a soap substitute.

Knowledge
  • Emollients help soften, moisturise and protect the skin. They play a central role in the treatment and management of dry skin conditions. For maximum effect, they should be applied regularly and as often as needed.
  • When bathing, try to use warm, not hot, water and avoid staying in the bath for long periods. This could make dry skin conditions worse.
  • Try to avoid using normal soaps or shower products (even those labelled “moisturising”). This is because they tend to dry and irritate the skin. Avoid using products containing fragrances, as these can also cause skin problems. You should try to use a fragrance-free emollient “soap substitute” instead. This type of product will not foam or lather but will be better for your dry skin condition.
  • Breaking the itch-scratch cycle.
    Some dry skin conditions like eczema and dermatitis are itchy, and can be quite sore. Although scratching relieves the itching for a short while, it further damages the skin. Badly scratched skin easily gets infected. This makes it itchier and the urge to scratch becomes even greater. It is better if scratching can be avoided by reducing the itching. The regular use of emollients or moisturisers can help with this.
Instructions

For external use only.

Before using the 500g pump bottle, turn the top of the pump dispenser anti-clockwise to unlock it.

For adults, the elderly, infants and children.

For application to the skin

Apply Dermol Cream to the affected areas as often as necessary.

For use as a soap substitute

Dermol Cream may also be used as a cleanser in the bath or shower, or for other toiletry purposes, instead of ordinary soap or shower gel.

Warnings

Do not use Dermol Cream if you are allergic (hypersensitive) to benzalkonium chloride, chlorhexidine dihydrochloride, liquid paraffin, isopropyl myristate, or any of the other ingredients of Dermol Cream.

You must not use Dermol Cream if you have had problems with chlorhexidine-containing products in the past.

For patients with very sensitive skin, it is generally a good idea to start any new treatment on a small test area first, in case any side effect occurs. This is especially important when treating the face or young children. Thereafter, treatments may be applied more generously, as required.

Avoid getting it in the eyes, especially when using it on the face.

When used as a soap substitute in the bath or shower the product can make the surface slippery, so be careful to avoid slipping over when getting into and out of your shower or bath (eg by using a shower or bath mat).

KEEP OUT OF THE REACH AND SIGHT OF CHILDREN
