The Aquaphor ointment is a dermatologically formulated skin care product aimed at reinstating smooth, healthy dermis.

Aquaphor Ointment possesses multifunctional properties and can be employed in the management of various skin conditions such as xerosis, ichthyosis, pruritus, minor skin irritations such as diaper dermatitis, and radiation-induced skin burns.

Topically applied, its reparative action stems from its capacity to create a skin barrier that permits optimal transdermal hydration and oxygenation while concurrently locking in endogenous moisture content.

Given its clinical efficacy, physicians often encourage the use of Aquaphor ointment in posterior wound healing and tattoo aftercare.

The available Aquaphor ointment variants include Aquaphor Healing Ointment, Aquaphor Soothing Skin Balm, and Aquaphor Children’s Itch Relief Ointment.

Use and Dosage

Use this product as directed. Some products require priming before use. Follow all directions on the product package. If you have any questions, ask your doctor or pharmacist.

Some products need to be shaken before use. Check the label to see if you should shake the bottle well before using it. Apply it to the affected areas of the skin as needed or as directed on the label or by your doctor. How often you apply the medication will depend on the product and your skin condition. To treat dry hands, you may need to use the product every time you wash your hands, applying it throughout the day.

If you are using this product to help treat diaper rash, clean the diaper area well before use and allow the area to dry before applying the product.

If you are using this product to help treat radiation skin burns, check with radiation personnel to see if your brand can be applied before radiation therapy.

Follow all the directions on the label for proper use. Apply to the skin only. Avoid sensitive areas such as your eyes, inside your mouth/nose, and the vaginal/groin area, unless the label or your doctor directs you otherwise.

Check the label for directions about any areas or types of skin where you should not apply the product (such as on the face, any areas of broken/chapped/cut/irritated/scraped skin, or on a recently shaved area of the skin). Consult your doctor or pharmacist for more details.

Use this medication regularly to get the most benefit from it. Most moisturizers need water to work well. Apply the product after bathing/showering while the skin is still damp. For very dry skin, your doctor may instruct you to soak the area before using the product. Long, hot, or frequent bathing/washing can worsen dry skin.

If your condition lasts or worsens, or you think you may have a serious medical problem, get medical help immediately.
