This ointment helps alleviate pain, redness, itching, and helps ameliorate the healing process. For use after laser peels or treatments, mild sunburn, first and second degree burns, abrasions and contusions. Helps soften dry scaly skin patches, and fissured or callused skin. The base of Veradex-E® Ointment, a well thought out Yellow Petrolatum - Anhydrous Lanolin compound in a specified ratio, creates a semi-occlusive coating which allows the skin to respirate, preventing further maceration, while resisting exogenous infiltrates.
