Widely available, either on prescription from your doctor or to buy from your pharmacist or online at www.aproderm.com.
*Our airless pump dispenser technology minimises product contamination and reduces waste.
Do not use if you or your child has an allergy to any of the listed ingredients.
Do not apply to infected areas of skin.
Do not use if the tamper evident seal is damaged or missing.
Test the product on a small area, to exclude any allergy or other skin reaction. Apply a little gel to a patch of skin, this could be behind the ear or wherever your skin is most sensitive. Leave for 48 hours and observe for any signs of irritation. If there is no reaction, then it is safe to apply all over the area that needs to be treated.
AproDerm® Gel is simple and straightforward to apply and you can improve the results further by following these basic guidelines:
Keep your fingernails short and smooth to prevent skin damage.
Wash your hands before applying.
Break the tamper evident seal on the pump. Turn the pump in a clockwise direction and press the nozzle down several times to pump the cream on to your hand. The first time that you use AproDerm® Gel you may need to press the nozzle up to 10 times before the gel comes out – this is normal.
Apply AproDerm® Gel regularly, liberally and frequently to the affected area, smoothing onto the skin using gentle strokes and following the direction of hair growth.
Do not rub the gel in as this generates heat and can cause further irritation and itching. It can also block the hair follicles, which can cause folliculitis (inflammation of the hair follicles).
Leave a thin layer of gel on the skin and simply allow it to be absorbed by your skin – this can take about 10 minutes.
Frequency of application will depend on the severity of the skin condition. In general, it is recommended that AproDerm® Gel should be applied liberally to the affected areas of the skin on a regular basis and as often as required or as directed by your doctor.
AproDerm® Gel can be used before bathing to protect the skin from the drying effects of bathing, as well as after bathing to skin that is almost dry to trap in moisture.
Continue applying AproDerm® Gel once your skin has improved to protect against flare-ups and keep your skin healthier for longer.
Use of AproDerm® Gel during pregnancy or breastfeeding is unlikely to have any ill effects when used as directed, however if you are unsure talk to your doctor or pharmacist, who’ll be pleased to help.
AproDerm® Gel is for external use only. If you accidentally swallow some, see a doctor immediately taking the packaging with you.
