Oilatum is a bath additive (similarly to a bubble bath solution) which is intended to treat dry skin in those who suffer from conditions such as eczema or dermatitis.
There are a number of symptoms of eczema including:
The condition can affect any area of skin in any capacity - some people may experience small patches on the arms or legs, while others may experience widespread dry skin which can cause symptoms to a full body rash.
Eczema is common in places such as:
The symptoms may not be present all the time but may worsen or flare-up occasionally.
Oilatum contains a light liquid paraffin (refined mineral oil). This substance fortifies the natural barrier in the skin which is responsible for retaining moisture when applied to the skin.
This keeps the skin hydrated which over time reduces the dry skin.
Oilatum bath can be used in two ways.
The intended method of use is by adding 1 to 3 capfuls of Oilatum to an 8 inch bath of water. Bathe for 10 to 20 minutes.
If you have a shower or a wash, rather than a bath, you can use Oilatum similar to a soap or shower gel. Apply a small amount of Oilatum to wet skin when washing. Rinse and pat dry.
You must always use Oilatum with water.
After washing, it is important to dry your skin by dabbing with a dry towel. Avoid rubbing as this can rub the oil off your skin and reduce the effectiveness of the treatment.
All medicines have the potential of causing side effects, though not everybody gets them. Understanding the side effects associated with your medicine, and what to do if you experience them, is vital to your care.
Possible side effects of Oilatum include:
If you experience any side effects, whether they are listed above or on the label, speak to your doctor or pharmacist. You can find your nearest pharmacy using the NHS' Find A Pharmacy service.
Liquid paraffin is highly flammable. It is very important that any surface which the Oilatum has come into contact with is kept away from naked flames and cigarettes. This includes - but it not limited to - clothing, bedsheets and towels.
Oilatum can make surfaces slippery. Take extra care when getting in and out of your bath when using Oilatum to avoid injury.
Avoid getting the solution in your eyes. If the solution comes into contact with your eyes, immediately rinse your eyes and consult your doctor.
Do not use Oilatum if you are allergic to any of the ingredients.
Always keep medicines out of the sight and reach of children.
It is considered safe to use Oilatum while pregnant.
Breastfeeding mothers should take care when using Oilatum. Ensure there is no residual product left on the breast area before feeding your baby.
