Instructions for

MIRFULAN, irritant diaper dermatitis, ointment use:

Type of application?

Duration of use?
The duration of use depends on the type of symptoms and/or the course of the disease. You should see your doctor if you have persistent or recurring symptoms.

There are no known overdose symptoms. If in doubt consult your doctor.

In general, pay attention to a conscientious dosage, especially for babies, small children and the elderly. If in doubt, ask your doctor or pharmacist about any effects or precautions.

A dosage prescribed by the doctor may deviate from the information on the package leaflet. Therefore, since the doctor adjusts them individually, you should use the medicine according to his instructions.

mode of action:
How do the ingredients of the drug work?

Zinc oxide: Zinc oxide acts on the skin against pathogens and inflammation and promotes wound healing. In addition, the moisture is bound to the skin (e.g. in the case of weeping, damp skin areas in the body folds), which reduces further softening and the possible penetration of pathogens.
Urea: With urea, the skin is supplied with more moisture and can store it for longer. As a result, the upper horny layer softens and the skin becomes smoother and softer. The addition of urea also enables other active ingredients to penetrate from the skin's surface into the deeper layers, thus enhancing their effect.

What speaks against an application?

- Hypersensitivity to the ingredients
- Skin infections

What about pregnancy and breastfeeding?
- Pregnancy: consult your doctor. Various considerations play a role in whether and how the drug can be used during pregnancy.
- Breast-feeding: consult your doctor or pharmacist. He will examine your particular starting position and advise you accordingly as to whether and how you can continue breastfeeding.

If you have been prescribed the drug despite a contraindication, talk to your doctor or pharmacist. The therapeutic benefit can be higher than the risk that the use entails in the event of a contraindication.
