This medication serves as a moisturizing treatment to address or prevent dry, rough, scaly, itchy skin, and minor skin irritations like diaper rash or skin burns from radiation therapy. Emollients are substances designed to soften and hydrate the skin while reducing itching and flaking. Dry skin typically results from a loss of water in the upper layer of the skin. Emollients and moisturizers function by creating an oily layer on the skin’s surface, which helps trap water within the skin. Additionally, many products contain ingredients that aid in softening the tough substance (keratin) that binds the top layer of skin cells together. This process facilitates the shedding of dead skin cells, enhances water retention in the skin, and results in a smoother and softer skin texture.

Uses and Dosage

Adhere to the instructions provided when using this product. Some products may require priming before initial use. Ensure to follow all directions on the product packaging.

Certain products may need to be shaken before use. Verify the label to determine if thorough shaking is necessary before application.

Apply to the affected skin areas as needed or as directed on the label or by your doctor. The frequency of application will vary based on the product and your skin’s condition.

For treating dry hands, you may need to apply the product every time you wash your hands, consistently throughout the day.

If you’re using this product to address diaper rash, thoroughly clean the diaper area before application and allow it to dry completely.

If you’re using this product to treat radiation skin burns, consult with radiation personnel to confirm if your brand can be applied before radiation therapy.

Ensure to follow all instructions on the label for proper usage. Apply only to the skin, avoiding sensitive areas like eyes, mouth, nose, and the vaginal/groin area unless directed otherwise by the label or your doctor. Review the label for directions regarding areas or skin types where application is not advised, such as the face, areas of broken/chapped/cut/irritated/scraped skin, or recently shaved skin.

Use this medication regularly to derive maximum benefit. Most moisturizers require water to be effective. Apply the product after bathing or showering while the skin is still damp. In cases of severe dryness, your doctor may advise soaking the area before application. Prolonged, hot, or frequent bathing/washing can exacerbate dry skin.

If your condition persists, worsens, or if you suspect a serious medical issue, seek medical assistance promptly.
