Epaderm Ointment as an emollient
Epaderm Ointment provides a barrier to help soothe the skin. Emollients are not steroids so they can be used as much as needed. It should be applied generously and frequently even when the skin condition has improved.
Directions: apply Epaderm Ointment directly on the skin in the direction of hair growth. This will reduce the risk of blocking hair follicles.
Epaderm Ointment as a skin cleanser
Using Epaderm as a skin cleaner helps ensure that dry skin can be properly washed without losing additional moisture or having to deal with the problems that common soap additives might produce.
Directions: take a small amount from the tub, lather under warm water, and then use it as a normal soap.
Epaderm Ointment as a bath additive
Soaking the skin in an emollient for optimum rehydration is another key step of complete emollient therapy. When using Epaderm as a bath additive, care should be taken, as it will make the surface of the bath slippery.
Directions: take 4g from the tub. Melt this in a tumbler of hot water, ensuring it has cooled sufficiently before adding to the bath. Do not apply hot water directly to the skin.
