PACKAGE LEAFLET: INFORMATION FOR THE USER

1. WHAT DIPROBASE IS AND WHAT IT IS USED FOR
Diprobase is an emollient, moisturising and protective ointment.
It helps to soothe, smooth and hydrate the skin and prevent moisture loss.
In adults and children, Diprobase Ointment 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 ointment can be applied before
having a bath, to prevent your skin from drying even further.
Eczema is a common skin disease, which causes the skin to become red and itchy.
2. BEFORE YOU USE DIPROBASE
Do not use DIPROBASE

its ingredients. Ask your doctor or pharmacist if you are not sure.
