Overview

Buy Epaderm Ointment 125g online

Epaderm ointment is a moisturiser that contains a mixture of yellow soft paraffin, liquid paraffin and emulsifying wax. Dry skin results from lack of water in the outer layer of skin cells known as stratum corneum.

When this layer becomes dehydrated it loses its flexibility and becomes cracked, scaly and sometimes itchy. Epaderm attempts to bring back the moisture in the affected areas and stop any unwanted pain or urge to itch.

Side Effects

Eumovate cream and ointment are generally well tolerated and side effects are very rare when it is applied sparingly, no more than twice a day. If you experience any signs of allergic reactions, such as burning, itching or redness of the skin after applying the cream, stop using and contact your doctor.

Info Leaflet

Before taking any medication, it is important to read the Patient Information Leaflet. You can find information leaflets for your medicines by typing them into the search bar at medicines.org, or by contacting us.
