Overview

About Dermol Cream

Dermol Cream is an effective antimicrobial emollient cream used for the treatment of dry, itching skin, eczema, dermatitis and other dry skin conditions. Dermol Cream is useful in moisturising the skin surface and it can be applied to dry skin after washing. Dermol Cream can not only be used as a moisturiser but it can also be used as a soap substitute. Dermol Cream can also be used even after your symptoms have passed, to help keep future occurrences from happening.

About Eczema

Eczema is a chronic, relapsing, inflammatory skin condition which has symptoms of an itchy red rash, which is often found in skin creases such as the folds of the elbows or behind the knees. Eczema can also have a link to other conditions such as hayfever or asthma and is 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. Individuals who tend to suffer from dry skin do so due to water loss from the skin and reduced resistance to irritant substances.
