AproDerm Ointment is an intensely moisturising emollient that protects, moisturises and soothes the skin that is affected by moderate to severe eczema, psoriasis and other very dry skin conditions
AproDerm Ointment helps prevent skin damage and provides intense moisturisation to help control skin flare ups due to eczema or dermatitis.
Application of AproDerm Ointment forms a barrier layer that keeps moisture in, whilst keeping infections and irritants out.
AproDerm Ointment protects and provides symptomatic relief for dry, red, inflamed, damaged, and raw areas of skin and can also be used as a pre-bathing emollient to prevent the skin from drying out further.
Developed with the patient in mind, AproDerm Ointment is:
To apply, use a clean spoon to scoop out the required amount, this avoids contamination of the ointment.
AproDerm Ointment should be applied regularly, liberally and frequently to the affected area, using gentle, downward strokes, following the direction of hair growth.
Rubbing should be avoided as this can cause further irritation and itching (by generating heat) and can also cause folliculitis (as a result of blocking the hair follicles and causing their inflammation).
Store below 25°C. Do not refrigerate or freeze.
