Dermol Cream 500g is an antimicrobial emollient cream for use in the treatment and management of the dryness and itching (pruritus) which are common features of skin complaints like eczema and dermatitis. The emollients form a barrier within the skin surface, trapping the moisture in deeper layers of skin and reducing drying.
The antimicrobial ingredients combat the aggravating bacteria already present on the skin which make certain types of eczema worse. Dermol Cream is also designed to be used as a soap substitute. This is advantageous because ordinary toiletry soaps can make dry skin worse by removing its natural oils.
Caution before using Dermol Cream:
Do not use in case of known sensitivity to any of the ingredients. Take care to avoid the cream getting into the eyes. If this should occur, rinse the eyes thoroughly with plenty of warm water. Consult a doctor if irritation persists. If a significant quantity of the cream is accidentally swallowed, nausea and vomiting may occur. Serious effects are unlikely, but if there is cause for concern, seek medical attention.
