What is Oilatum Cream?

Oilatum Cream is a form of treatment that is designed to treat dry skin and conditions related to it such as eczema. The cream contains the active ingredients light liquid paraffin and white soft paraffin. This cream works by softening and soothing the skin by forming a protective barrier over the skin. It is effective as a form of treatment after washing the skin. This treatment is known as an emollient.


What is the cause of eczema?

Eczema is a condition that can be caused by a number of different reasons. These include an allergic reaction as well as coming into contact with different substances.
