Hydromol product information

Hydromol ointment contains emollient that helps to keep your skin soft and supple. It forms a protective barrier on your skin to prevent water loss.


How to use

You should follow the directions on the label and package.


In general, apply Hydromol ointment liberally to all areas of skin, in the direction of hair growth. For best results, apply it immediately after towel drying the skin. 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 Hydromol ointment first and wait for 10-15 minutes before applying steroid.


Alternatively, you can use Hydromol ointment to replace your usual soap in bath or shower.


Side effects of Hydromol ointment

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. 

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