What is Oilatum Shower Gel?

Oilatum shower gel is an alternative to soap which is perfect for those who suffer with eczema, dermatitis, or other dry skin conditions. It’s perfect for those who find that regular soap irritates their dry skin, soothing and hydrating the skin as you shower or bathe.

 

What is dermatitis?

Contact dermatitis is a dry skin condition which is similar to eczema. It happens when you come into contact with something that you’re sensitive or allergic to, and usually clears up when you’ve avoided this substance. When you have contact dermatitis, you may see symptoms such as:

  • Red skin
  • Blisters
  • Dry skin
  • Cracked skin
  • Inflammation

 

How will this shower gel help me to manage dry skin?

Oilatum shower gel uses the active ingredient light liquid paraffin, which works as an emollient. Emollients form a barrier over dry skin, keeping moisture locked into the skin and helping to hydrate the area. This helps to reduce itching and irritation as well as moisturising and soothing dry skin.

 

Can I use this shower gel if I’m pregnant or breastfeeding?

If you’re pregnant or breastfeeding, you shouldn’t have any problems when using this shower gel, but be sure to speak to your doctor or Chemist 4 U pharmacist before using any new product at this time. If you are breastfeeding, make sure this product is thoroughly washed off of your breasts before feeding your baby.

 

How to use Oilatum shower gel

Use Oilatum shower gel exactly as you would any other shower gel every time you bathe or shower. When your skin is wet, lather some of this shower gel between your hands and massage gently into the skin. Rinse well with warm water and then pat the skin dry with a towel.

 

When should this product not be used?

Do not use Oilatum shower gel if you are allergic to light liquid paraffin or any of the other listed ingredients. This product is not suitable for those who have greasy skin. For external use only, avoid contact with eyes or inside of mouth. This product can make your shower or bath more slippery, so take care during use.

 

Does this product have any side effects?

Like all medications, Oilatum Shower Gel can have side effects, although not everyone will experience them. These include:

  • Redness of the skin, rash, irritation, itching
  • Allergic reaction, e.g. red, swollen, or inflamed skin (dermatitis)

If you experience these or any other side effects while using this product, stop use and speak to your doctor or Chemist 4 U pharmacist right away. For more information about reporting the side effects of medication, please see the MHRA’s Yellow Card Scheme.

Having a skin condition is uncomfortable for a number of reasons. It looks unpleasant, it can be itchy, irritating and be extremely sensitive. These conditions can be caused by a number of different conditions, but they can be treated in a number of different ways as well.

If you have dry skin that always seems to happen in the same area and drives you up the wall with that itchy, scratchy feeling, then you could have eczema.

But what is eczema, and what makes this condition different from just regular patches of dry skin?

Today, we’re going to find out more about eczema, what it is, and what it means for your skin.
