What is Diprobase eczema cream?

It is an emollient moisturising and protective cream used to soothe, smooth and hydrate the skin and stop further moisture loss. It contains a mixture of liquid paraffin and white soft paraffin which relieves and soothes red, inflamed, damaged, dry, or chapped skin. It is particularly effective in the treatment of eczema and other dry skin conditions.

What Alternatives are there for Diprobase?

Many alternative products exist on the market. Many are similar focusing on soothing and rehydrating the skin as well as preventing further moisture loss. The main differences in treatments are whether the product is a cream, ointment or lotion. Please note, what works best for each patient will vary based on the severity of eczema. Speak to your doctor or pharmacist to ensure each product is suitable for you.

Side Effects

Are there any side effects for Diprobase?

As with all medicines, there is a slight possibility of side effects although not everyone will experience them. 

You may experience:

  • Itching
  • Rash
  • Redness
  • Peeling
  • Burning (especially if applied to raw skin)
  • Pain
  • Skin inflammation

Many of these effects can be attributed to the condition of the skin when applying. Use caution when applying to skin that may be too damaged. Seek medical advice if the skin has major breaks.

Info Leaflet

Before using treatments you should read the patient information leaflet.


How to apply Diprobase?

Apply the cream as directed by your health professional. You should consult your doctor or pharmacist for advice if you are unsure how much to use.  

Apply the cream to the affected areas and gently rub it into the skin. The number of times the cream should be applied daily will vary based on the severity of the dryness and skin damage.

If being used for eczema, you may wish to apply before bathing in order to prevent the skin from drying further.

If the condition of your skin gets worse or is not improving with use, stop using the cream and consult a doctor or pharmacist for alternative treatment.

If you forget to apply the cream, apply as soon as you remember and proceed as normal, there’s no benefit to applying more than the regular amount.

  • Are allergic to any of the ingredients

The ingredients for Diprobase Cream are white soft paraffin, cetostearyl alcohol, liquid paraffin, macrogol cetostearyl ether, chlorocresol, sodium dihydrogen phosphate, sodium hydroxide, phosphoric acid and purified water.
