Zeroguent®
• Zeroguent® is an emollient used for the symptomatic treatment of dermatitis; ichthyosis; eczema; nappy
rash; protection of raw and abraded skin areas; pruritis and related skin conditions where dry scaly skin is a
problem; and as a pre-bathing emollient for dry/eczematous skin, to alleviate drying effects.
• Sorbic acid is an irritant which can cause dermatitis. If you find you are sensitive to the cream, stop use
and consult a pharmacist or doctor if you have cause for concern.
• Application: Adults, children, and elderly.
A thin application of the cream should be gently massaged into the skin three times daily, or at appropriate
intervals. When used as a protective cream, Zeroguent® should be applied sparingly to the affected areas of
the skin before, or immediately after, exposure to a potentially harmful factor.
• If the condition worsens, or you experience any unwanted side effects which you think may be due to the
medicine, stop using it and ask your pharmacist or doctor for advice.
