About Dermol 500

Dermol 500 Lotion is an effective treatment for dry, itching skin, eczema, dermatitis and other dry skin conditions. Dermol 500 is a useful moisturiser that helps to moisturise the skin surface. This product can be applied to dry skin after washing.  Dermol 500 lotion can not only be used as a moisturiser but it can also be used as a soap substitute.

Eczema is a chronic, relapsing, inflammatory skin condition.   Eczema symptoms normally will present as an itchy red rash.  This is often found in the folds of the elbows or behind the knees.  Eczema can also have a link to other conditions such as hayfever or asthma.  It is also quite common in children and often involves the scalp and face.

Dry skin conditions can be caused by many different factors, including certain temperatures, food sensitivities or stress. Water loss from the skin and reduced resistance to irritant substances also can often be a factor.


How to use Dermol 500 lotion?

Dermol 500 lotion can be used in two ways, the first is as an emollient.  To apply as an emollient gently spread the lotion over your skin covering all of the affected areas.   allow your skin to dry and then re-apply if required.

The second way to use Dermol 500 lotion is as a substitute to soap. Ensure not to rub your skin but rather pat dry with a towel after you have a bath or shower.
