1. WHAT DIPROBATH IS AND WHAT IT IS USED FOR
Diprobath is a bath emollient. It helps to soothe and soften the skin. Diprobath
leaves a thin film of oil over the skin and helps to prevent the skin drying out. It is
used to treat dry skin conditions and conditions where the skin is thickened and
scaly, such as in dermatitis and eczema.
Dermatitis is a condition brought on by the skin reacting to outside agents e.g.
detergents, causing the skin to become red and itchy.
Eczema is a common skin disease, which causes the skin to become red and itchy.
