What is Zeroderm ointment?

Zeroderm ointment is an emollient which can help to soothe the symptoms of dry skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis. It can be used as an ointment, as a soap, or in the bath to moisturise dry skin, and ease flare ups of dry skin conditions.

 

What is eczema?

Eczema is a common dry skin condition which can make areas of your skin itchy and dry. It is common in children and some children can grow out of the condition, but it can also occur for the first time in adults. Some of the most common symptoms of eczema include:

  • Redness
  • Itching
  • Dry skin
  • Cracked skin
  • Inflammation
  • Soreness

 

How will this ointment help to soothe my dry skin?

Zeroderm ointment is an emollient, which means that every time you use this product a barrier is formed over your skin. This helps to keep moisture in your skin, hydrating and moisturising areas of dry skin. It also helps to protect the skin, and is a perfect substitute for soap, which can make some dry skin conditions worse.

 

Can I use this product if I’m pregnant or breastfeeding?

Zeroderm ointment should not have any unwanted effects when you are pregnant or breastfeeding. However, you should speak to your doctor or Chemist 4 U pharmacist before using any medication while pregnant or breastfeeding, as it may not be safe for you or your baby at this time.

 

Can I use this product if I’m using other medication?

Zeroderm ointment is not known to interact with any other medication during use. However, you should speak to your doctor or Chemist 4 U pharmacist before using this product if you’re taking other medication, especially those used topically on the skin. Some medications can interact when used together, causing unwanted effects or making your medication less effective.

 

How to use Zeroderm ointment

  • Instead of soap – Take a small amount and lather under warm water to clean your skin as needed. Pat skin dry after use
