Some more information about Ointment:
Ointments are made from either mineral oils, like paraffin and petroleum jelly, or fats. They don’t contain any water.They are thicker than eczema cream and lotion. The drier your skin the greasier the treatment should be. If you hold a tub outside down, an ointment wont fall out.
You can buy some over the counter. Though if you use it regularly on a large area of skin, you might find it cheaper getting it on prescription.
The main property of ointments is that they help retain water in the skin. So it is ideal to use on very dry skin. Also on areas of thicker skin, like on the arms and legs.
Their greasiness means that they are not popular with everyone. They can be a bit messy, and make clothing greasy. This makes them a better choice to use at night.
One advantage of them is that they don’t contain any preservatives. This is because they don’t have any water in them. Creams and lotions do contain preservatives. The water in these can make the product go off. The preservatives may cause a reaction to the skin.
