Dermol Wash Emulsion 200ml A sensitive and gentle hand wash suitable for those with dry skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis. It can be used a soap substitute to prevent skin from drying when washing your hands. It contains antimicrobials to reduce inflammation and rid the skin of toxins which can lead to itchy skin. The added emollients help to restore moisture balance in the skin by rehydrating. Suitable for children and adults. External use only. Use as an everyday handwash.
This product is only for application to the skin. Use this product as part of your normal washing routine, instead of your ordinary soap (bar or liquid) or cleanser. For maximum benefit you should use it whenever you wash (including routine hand washing). Before using this product, turn the top of the pump dispenser anti-clockwise to unlock it. After unlocking, you will need to press down the pump dispenser several times to prime the pump before any product is dispensed. Wash with this product in the same way as you would with any liquid soap. Use it with a gentle washing action. The product will not foam or lather as you wash. Rinse off (you should still be able to feel the product coating the skin). Pat the skin dry with a soft towel (avoid rubbing as this can make dry skin conditions worse). You can also use Dermol Wash as a leave-on treatment, by re-applying it after washing and drying. JP58/19/1 201889 continued SH Dermol ฎ Gently smooth the product into the dry skin areas. If necessary, allow time for any excess to soak in. Do not rub the skin vigorously. If you are applying another product to the same areas of skin as Dermol Wash, try to avoid mixing the two products. You can do this by applying the treatments alternately, leaving enough time to allow the previous product to soak in. Dermol Wash can be used for intensive and frequent hand-washing (e.g. for healthcare professionals in a clinical setting). Using Dermol Wash, follow the hand-washing technique normally recommended. Rinse thoroughly and dry. Apply Dermol Wash to hands as a leave-on skin conditioner. If you forget to use Dermol Wash Do not worry if you occasionally forget to use it, just carry on using the product as described the next time you wash. If the product gets into the eyes The product may cause irritation if it gets into the eyes. Rinse the eyes with plenty of water. If rinsing one eye, take care to avoid washing product into the other eye. If irritation persists, seek medical advice.
Do not use Dermol Wash if you are allergic (hypersensitive) to isopropyl myristate, liquid paraffin, benzalkonium chloride and chlorhexidine dihydrochloride or any of the other ingredients of Dermol Wash listed in Section 6. Warnings and precautions As with any product, severe generalised allergic reactions (see Section 4) are possible. Very rare reports of such reactions in susceptible individuals, leading to a drop in blood pressure and even to unconsciousness, have been associated with products containing chlorhexidine. You must not use Dermol Wash if you have had problems with chlorhexidine-containing products in the past.
Do not smoke or go near naked flames - risk of severe burns. Fabric (clothing, bedding, dressings etc) that has been in contact with this product burns more easily and is a serious fire hazard. Washing clothing and bedding may reduce product build-up but not totally remove it.
Take care when using this product: Avoid getting it in the eyes, especially when using it on the face. If you decide to use this product to wash with in the bath or shower, it 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); after use, clean out the bath/shower tray with a suitable detergent to remove any remaining greasiness (wearing protective gloves to avoid irritating your hands). 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 (see Section 4 overleaf). This is especially important when treating the face or young children. Thereafter, treatments may be applied more generously, as required.

This product has been specially designed for use on dry or problem skin areas anywhere on the body.
