Suitable for children and adults.

External use only.

Use as an everyday handwash.

What happens when you have eczema?

When you have eczema, you’ll experience patches or wider spread areas of dry, red, itchy, and irritated skin. Some of the most common places where people experience eczema include the hands, backs of knees, insides of elbows, face, and scalp. Some people find that their eczema flares up when their skin comes into contact with something that irritates it, like some soaps, detergents, or weather conditions.

How will this product help to soothe my dry skin condition?

Uses / Instructions

  • This product is only for application to the skin.
  • Use this product as part of your normal washing routine, instead of your ordinary soap (bar or liquid) or cleanser.
  • For maximum benefit you should use it whenever you wash (including routine hand washing).
  • Before using this product, turn the top of the pump dispenser anti-clockwise to unlock it.
  • After unlocking, you will need to press down the pump dispenser several times to prime the pump before any product is dispensed.
  • Wash with this product in the same way as you would with any liquid soap.
  • Use it with a gentle washing action.
  • The product will not foam or lather as you wash.
  • Rinse off (you should still be able to feel the product coating the skin).
  • Pat the skin dry with a soft towel (avoid rubbing as this can make dry skin conditions worse).
  • You can also use Dermol Wash as a leave-on treatment, by re-applying it after washing and drying.
  • Gently smooth the product into the dry skin areas. If necessary, allow time for any excess to soak in. Do not rub the skin vigorously.
  • If you are applying another product to the same areas of skin as Dermol Wash, try to avoid mixing the two products. You can do this by applying the treatments alternately, leaving enough time to allow the previous product to soak in.
  • Dermol Wash can be used for intensive and frequent hand-washing (e.g. for healthcare professionals in a clinical setting).
  • Using Dermol Wash, follow the hand-washing technique normally recommended.
  • Rinse thoroughly and dry.
  • Apply Dermol Wash to hands as a leave-on skin conditioner.
  • If you forget to use Dermol Wash Do not worry if you occasionally forget to use it, just carry on using the product as described the next time you wash.
  • If the product gets into the eyes it may cause irritation. Rinse the eyes with plenty of water. If rinsing one eye, take care to avoid washing product into the other eye. If irritation persists, seek medical advice.


  • Do not use Dermol Wash if you are allergic (hypersensitive) to isopropyl myristate, liquid
    paraffin, benzalkonium chloride and chlorhexidine dihydrochloride or any of the other ingredients
    of Dermol Wash
  • As with any product, severe generalised allergic reactions are possible. Very rare
    reports of such reactions in susceptible individuals, leading to a drop in blood pressure and even
    to unconsciousness, have been associated with products containing chlorhexidine.
  • You must not use Dermol Wash if you have had problems with chlorhexidine-containing products in the past.
  • 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.
  • Take care when using this product:
    • Avoid getting it in the eyes, especially when using it on the face.
    • If you decide to use this product to wash with in the bath or shower, it can make the surface
    slippery, so:
    – be careful to avoid slipping over when getting into and out of your shower or bath (e.g. by using a shower or bath mat);
    – after use, clean out the bath/shower tray with a suitable detergent to remove any remaining
    greasiness (wearing protective gloves to avoid irritating your hands).
    • For patients with very sensitive skin, it is generally a good idea to start any new treatment on
    a small test area first, in case any side effect occurs. This is especially important when treating the face or young children. Thereafter, treatments may be applied more generously, as required.

See patient information leaflet for more details.

Side Effects

Like all medicines, Dermol Wash can cause side effects, although not everybody gets them.

If you experience any of the following reactions stop using Dermol Wash and get urgent medical help:

  • swelling of the face, lips, tongue or throat
  • a sudden uncharacteristic red itchy skin rash (hives) away from the site of application
  • wheezing or breathing difficulty
  • feeling faint or dizzy
  • a strange metallic taste in the mouth;
  • collapse.
  • You may be having a serious allergic reaction.

This product has been specially designed for use on dry or problem skin areas anywhere on the body.

Rarely, Dermol Wash can cause skin reactions on treated areas (involving redness, irritation and/or itching). These very rare skin reactions may become more significant where associated with excessive use as a leave-on application in areas of folded skin such as the groin or in the nappy area.

See patient information leaflet for more details.
