Tips on using Hydromol
- Apply Hydromol Cream / Hydromol Ointment as often as possible, at least 3 - 4 times a day. You cannot over-use emollients. Hydromol Intensive can be used twice daily
- Apply liberally to the affected area. If in doubt, ask your doctor or nurse for advice
- Always use bath emollient when bathing. Air or pat dry - do not rub - and liberally apply the cream / ointment
- Take care when getting in and out of the shower or bath- as for most emollient bath products, Hydromol Bath & Shower Emollient can leave bathroom surfaces more slippery than usual
- Even when the skin starts to improve, do not stop using emollient therapy
- Never be without the cream / ointment. Take some of your emollient with you wherever you go, and don't wait until you run out to get some more
- If you prefer the cream/ointment warmer or cooler, you can either warm it in your hands or store in a cool place prior to application (however it should not be heated or chilled)
- Apply the cream / ointment in the direction of hair growth to avoid blocking hair follicles
- Take care with naked flames after applying any product containing paraffin liquid or wax
- Do not smoke or go near naked flames - risk of severe burns. Fabric (clothing, bedding, dressings etc) that has been in contact with this product burns more easily and is a serious fire hazard. Washing clothing and bedding may reduce product build-up but not totally remove it.
