Emollients, like Epaderm and Epaderm Cream, cannot be over used – in fact, the more you use the better.
Instructions for use
Using Epaderm Cream as an emollient
Healthcare guidelines recommend that emollients should form the basis of atopic eczema management and should always be used, even when the atopic eczema is clear. Children usually require 250g per week, and children over 10 years of age and adults usually require 600g per week for application to the whole body.
Using Epaderm Cream as a skin cleanser
When caring for dry skin conditions, it is vital to ensure that moisturisation is carried out wherever possible. However, it is equally important that no soaps or products containing detergents are used as they will increase water loss from the skin. Using Epaderm Cream as a skin cleanser ensures that dry skin can be properly washed, without losing additional moisture or having to deal with the problems that common soap additives might produce. Dispense a small amount onto your hand, lather under warm water and then use as a normal soap.
Areas of use
Epaderm Cream can be used in the treatment and management of eczema, psoriasis and all other dry skin conditions. It is suitable for all ages, including babies.
