Introduction~ I've always suffered from dry skin and have recently been told by my doctor that a rash I get on my upper arms in warm weather is actually a form of eczema. Having been under the assumption that it was just a heat rash I have never sought any medical help before, but on a recent...

“Diprobase Cream”

published 06/03/2012

Effective, affordable

Not keen on the smell

I've suffered from eczema for a few years now, it's a horrible condition but it's made more bearable by my various lotions and potions that I use to treat it whenever it flares up. For anyone who doesn't already know, eczema is an inflammatory skin condition which causes the skin to itch, swell...

Here I am trying to struggle with my Eczema and the cold weather.My preference would be to stay in doors from October until the Daffodils are out.But unfortunately I have to work for a living,so Its not really an option. At the moment my skin is so dry and red,that it actually stings when I get...

Gets to work so quickly

So thick and heavy

I was prescribed this cream by my doctor a few weeks ago, when I had some eczema on my wrist that just wouldn’t clear up. It was really dry and itchy and was getting really sore. I had never heard of this diprobase cream before I used it a few weeks ago, I usually use aqueous cream or sudocreme...

“Is there a shortage?”

published 20/07/2008

Relieves itch and dryness

Greasy

Is there a world-wide shortage of Diprobase or is it just confined to N Ireland? Maybe it is connected to oil prices, after all it is made from liquid paraffin! My 7 year old daughter has suffered with eczema since she was 6 weeks old, her's is the type that will not go away, it is inherited from...

Good

Great if it works for you

Hit and miss, more likely to work with mild eczema

As a long term eczema sufferer I have tried pretty much every cream on the market over the years, including various strengths of topical steroids, sunbed treatment and new treatments like tacrolimus cream, despite the fact that it had been in general use for a short time. Diprobase is, thankfully...

“The final solution”

published 22/03/2013

Great cream that actually works.

Takes a long time to be absorbed, Massive bottle.

I was familiar with Diprobase from my childhood when I was prescribed it to try and sort out a problem with peeling skin on my feet, it didn't work back then (Betnovate eventually did.) so I was sceptical about how successful it would be when my doctor prescribed it for the dry skin on my hands...

provides relief, absorbs well

None

I have suffered with Eczema on and off since being a young child and when it flares up it is really itchy as any sufferers will know. About 6 months ago my skin on my arms began flaring up and on showing my senior at work she let me use a spare Diprobase pump bottle we have in stock just so that...

“Deeply dippy about Diprobase”

published 12/07/2011

Soothing, really moisturises

Some may find it greasy

I was prescribed Diprobase emollient a few years ago, when I was suffering bouts of skin irritation on my legs that resulted in itchy, dry and flaky patches. I have never suffered from that since that particular occurrence cleared up, but I have had outbreaks of something similar on my hands on...

Clinical scent

I have suffered with dry, sensitive skin and recurrent episodes of quite severe eczema since early childhood. My boys have also inherited my dry skin and also experience flare ups of eczema of varying severity. Over the years, I have used many different creams, ointments and treatments for both...

easy to use, smoothing, creamy, big tub

Not as good as hydrocortisone

For most of my life, I have suffered with sensitive skin, rashes, allergies, hives, eczema etc etc and I can only thank my father for passing these wonderful genes down to me ( he has done nothing else for me lol!!) I have used many different creams, lotions, potions and emoliants over the years...

A little goes a long way so take it easy.

DiproBase emollient cream has to be THE moisturiser. Although little known to people it is excellent value for money compared to some of the flashy advertised brands you get on TV with sports stars prancing about and in my opinion does a far better job. --- Housing, quantity and labelling --- I...

It works well

It is very thick

I suffer from a dry patchy skin on my wrists and elbows and sometimes my shins get flare ups. My Doctor has prescribed me some Diprobase Cream which is really good and it helps my condition. I have a 50g tube of cream and I got this on prescription. This cream is very thick indeed and it makes a...

“Kill the itching”

soothing, cool, gentle on skin, it works!

sticky, greasy in large amounts

Throughout my life so far i have suffered from many various allergies and rashes but the worst one would have to be the severe eczma that i suffered as a young child. Eczma generally means 'enflamed skin' and this is an exact description of what this horrible skin disease is. Every night as a...
