Patient Reviews: How Dermol 500 Has Made a Difference

How Does Dermol 500 Work?

Dermol 500 lotion contains several active ingredients which work to prevent infection and assist the skin in locking in moisture.

Dermol 500 is absorbed through the skin, where it works to draw in moisture and soften the skin.

The first two active ingredients (benzalkonium chloride and chlorhexidine dihydrochloride) are antimicrobials. They help to prevent infection in cracked, broken or scratched skin. They also fight the bacteria that can make eczema worse.

The second type of ingredients (liquid paraffin and isopropyl myristate) are known as emollients. This protects the skin by moisturising it. Emollients trap moisture and restore the normal protective function of the skin.

Emollients also bring relief from irritating symptoms such as itching and dryness.

How Do I Use Dermol 500?

Read the patient information leaflet for instructions on using Dermol 500.

If you are unsure about any of the instructions in the patient information leaflet, speak to your doctor or ask a pharmacist for advice.

For best results, Dermol 500 lotion should be used regularly. You can reapply Dermol 500 as often as required.

You should always check with your doctor before using a new cream, especially if you have certain allergies or sensitive skin.

It is always a good idea to try a small patch test when trying any new products.

Priming the pump

Before using Dermol 500ml, you need to rotate the pump anti-clockwise to unlock it. Once unlocked, you may need to pump it several times to prime it and get the cream out.

Once the pump dispenses a consistent amount of cream, it is ready to use.

Using Dermol 500

Dermol 500 can be used in one of two ways:

Firstly, you can apply Dermol 500 lotion directly to regions of dry and itchy skin.

Apply as much as needed and massage it gently into the skin. Wait a few minutes for the product to sink in.

Do not rub Dermol 500 lotion into the skin vigorously, as this may exacerbate your skin condition.

Dermol 500 lotion can be used as a shower gel alternative; use it in place of your regular soap or shower gel, then wash it away with clean water. It won't lather up like a regular soap. Soaps that lather tend to dry out the skin - this is because these soaps lower the surface tension of water, enabling it to break down the natural oils which protect your skin and wash them away.

Caution: Dermol 500 lotion may cause some surfaces, such as floors and baths, to become more slippery than usual. Take extra care when using Dermol 500.

When drying off, pat the skin dry – don't rub it vigorously with a towel, as this may cause further skin irritation.

Can I use Dermol 500 on my face?

You can use Dermol 500 on the face, though be mindful not to get the lotion in your eyes.

If you accidentally get Dermol 500 lotion in your eyes, rinse your eyes with water as soon as possible. If irritation persists, seek immediate medical attention.

Can I use Dermol 500 with other skincare products?

Dermol 500 can be used in conjunction with other creams given to you by your doctor. When applying two creams, try not to mix them; apply the first one, allow it to sink in, and then use the second cream on top.

Speak to your doctor if you are unsure how to use Dermol 500 in conjunction with other topical treatments. Dermol 500 may dilute other treatments, making them less effective.

Side Effects and Cautions of Dermol 500 Lotion

Before you start using Dermol 500, you must read the supplied patient information leaflet. The leaflet contains instructions on taking, storing and disposing of Dermol 500, as well as important information about the treatment's safety.

You can view the patient information leaflet for Dermol 500 Lotion online.

If you are unsure about anything, you read in the patient information leaflet, speak to your doctor or ask a pharmacist for advice.

If you are unsure whether Dermol 500 is suitable for you, speak to your doctor for advice.

Side Effects

All medicines carry the risk of side effects. Though not everyone who uses Dermol 500 will experience side effects, it is important to be aware of the risks associated with your treatment.

In rare cases, skin irritation, redness and itching may become worse at the site of application.

Stop using Dermol 500 if your skin condition looks or feels worse or if you experience any side effects which become bothersome.

If you experience any side effects, regardless of whether they are listed above or in the patient information leaflet, stop using Dermol 500 lotion and report your side effects to your doctor.


Do not use Dermol 500 lotion if you are allergic to benzalkonium chloride, chlorhexidine, liquid paraffin, isopropyl myristate, or any of the other ingredients listed in the patient information leaflet.

If you experience an allergic reaction after using Dermol 500, stop using the lotion and seek immediate medical attention. Remember to take the packaging and any remaining medicine with you so that doctors treating you know exactly what you took.

Pregnancy and breastfeeding

Dermol 500 lotion is suitable for women who are pregnant or breastfeeding.

The ingredients of Dermol 500 have been used in many products for years without issues reported in pregnancy and breastfeeding.

However, there has been no formal study on the use of Dermol 500 during pregnancy.

Other safety information

If you have any questions about Dermol 500 or your condition, feel free to speak to one of our online doctors.

Always use Dermol 500 as instructed in the patient information leaflet.

Warning: Dermol 500 is highly flammable. Keep away from naked flames and other heat sources when using Dermol 500 lotion. Wash any surfaces, such as clothing or bedding, that have come into contact with Dermol 500 lotion to prevent the risk of fires.

Do not use Dermol 500 past the expiry date printed on the packaging.

Always store Dermol 500 out of sight and reach from children and pets.

Never share your medicines with anybody else, even if they are experiencing the same symptoms or have been diagnosed with the same condition.
