Diprobase is an emollient, moisturising and protective ointment. It helps to soothe, smooth and hydrate the skin and prevent moisture loss.
In adults and children, Diprobase Ointment is used to treat red, inflamed, damaged, dry or chapped skin and to protect raw skin areas. If you are suffering from a skin condition called eczema, and your skin is dry, the ointment can be applied before having a bath, to prevent your skin from drying even further.
Eczema is a common skin disease, which causes the skin to become red and itchy.
Always use Diprobase exactly as your doctor has told you. You should check with your doctor or pharmacist if you are not sure.
For adults and children, the ointment should be applied thinly to cover the affected area completely, massaging gently and thoroughly into the skin.
If the symptoms persist or the condition worsens, stop using the ointment and consult your doctor or pharmacist.
If you forget to use DIPROBASE
If you forget to use your Diprobase at the right time, use it as soon as you remember, then carry on as before.
Like all medicines, Diprobase can cause side effects, although not everybody gets them.
If your symptoms persist or the condition worsens, stop using the ointment and consult your doctor or pharmacist.
Skin reactions including itching, rash, redness, peeling, burning, pain, dryness and skin inflammation (dermatitis) have been reported with product use.
If you are worried by this or any other effects, you should tell your doctor or pharmacist.
If any of the side effects gets serious, or if you notice any side effects not listed in this leaflet, please tell your doctor or pharmacist.
