Mode of application

Vegaderm ointment is for topical application only. Ointment is beneficial in the treatment of chronic dermatoses, e.g. dry, lichenified and scaly lesions, i.e. in cases when occlusive effect of ointment as vehicle is required. The required amount of ointment is applied to the affected skin in a thin layer and gently rubbed in twice daily. On parts of skin with thick stratum corneum and on which the preparation is easily removed (e.g. palms and soles of the feet) treatment should be repeated more frequently. The treatment should not exceed 3 weeks. In the chronic skin conditions, to prevent relapses, treatment should continue for some time even after the disappearance of all symptoms, under constant supervision of a physician.
