Dermamist product information

Dermamist is a moisturiser that contains an emollient called white soft paraffin that helps to keep your skin soft and supple by preventing excessive water loss. It comes in a spray can.


How to use

You should follow the directions on the label and package.

In general, apply Dermamist by spraying about 20cm away from your skin. While spraying, move the can around to provide coverage on all areas of the skin. For best results, apply it immediately after towel drying the skin. To apply it on the face, do not spray it directly. You can spray in on your hands then apply it on the face. You should use emollients everyday to prevent flare up of eczema.


Some people may be prescribed steroid creams to be used together with the emollient. You should apply Dermamist first and wait for 10-15 minutes before applying steroid.


Side effects of Dermamist

Side effects are unlikely but you should stop using the emollient if you experience any burning or stinging of the skin.


Cautions

You may need to answer a series of Yes/No questionnaires before ordering to determine your suitability to the medicine.
 
As emollients can be greasy, you should be careful of slips, trips and falls. 

You should keep the spray can away from naked flames as it can be a fire hazard.

Dermamist is for topical use only. Avoid getting it into your eyes, nose or mouth.
