What is Diprobase and when is it used?

Diprobase is an emollient, moisturising and productive cream. It helps to soothe, smooth and hydrate the skin and prevent moisture loss.

In adults and children, Diprobase Cream 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 cream can be applied before having a bath, to prevent your skin from drying even further.

How will it treat my symptoms?

Eczema treatment has four main goals:

  • Control the itch
  • Heal the skin
  • Prevent flares
  • Prevent infections

Whether you opt to use the cream or the cream is down to personal preference. You may find the cream is easier to rub in and is absorbed quicker, and can be spread over a larger area. However, the cream is greasier to the touch, it stays on the skin for longer and may therefore be slightly more effective for smaller or drier areas of skin.

Can I buy Diprobase Over the Counter?

Yes, you can buy certain pack sizes and doses over the counter in the UK. You don’t need a prescription to buy this dose, but a pharmacist will need to ensure the treatment is suitable and safe for you.

What causes Eczema?

People with atopic eczema often have very dry skin because their skin is unable to retain much moisture. This dryness may make the skin more likely to react to certain triggers, causing it to become and itchy.

You may be born with an increased likelihood of developing eczema because of the genes you inherit from your parents. Atopic eczema isn’t infectious, so it can’t be passed on through close contact.

Eczema triggers

There are a number of things that may trigger your eczema symptoms. These can vary from person to person. Common triggers include:

  • Irritants – such as soaps and detergents, including shampoo, washing up liquid and bubble bath
  • Environmental factors or allergens – such as cold and dry weather, dampness, and more specific things such as house dust mites, pet fur, pollen and moulds
  • Hormonal changes – women may find their symptoms gets worse in the days before their period or during pregnancy

Does Diprobase cause any side effects?

Like all medicines, Diprobase can cause side effects, although not everybody gets them. If your symptoms persist or the condition worsens, stop using the cream and consult your doctor.

Skin reactions including itching, rash, redness, peeling, burning, pain, dryness and skin inflammation (dermatitis) have been reported with product use. If any of the side effects get serious, discontinue use and contact your doctor immediately.

How to use

Always use Diprobase exactly as your doctor has told you. You should check with your doctor if you are not sure.

For adults and children, the cream should be applied thinly to cover the affected area completely, massaging gently and thoroughly into the skin.

Storage

The cream should not be stored above 25 degrees, keep out of the sight and reach of children. Do not use the cream after the expiry date EXP which is stamped on the pack. This can be found on both the carton and tube. This refers to the last date of that month.

Apply a thin layer of cream and massage thoroughly into affected areas of skin.
