Balneum Plus Bath Oil explained

Balneum Plus Bath Oil is an additive which can be used by people with a dry skin condition to relieve symptoms such as itching and leave their skin feeling soft and moisturised. This medicinal oil can be used against conditions such as eczema and dermatitis which both cause skin to become dry and itchy.

When taking a bath or shower, patients can use this bath oil as a replacement for regular soap and cleanser (which end up stripping the skin of essential oils).

How does Balneum Plus Bath Oil work?

Balneum Plus Bath Oil contains lauromacrogols and soya oil which are both key in helping people with dry skin.

The lauromacrogols are local anaesthetics and their anti-pruritic action helps to relieve itching associated with dry skin conditions. Soya oil is an emollient which soothes and softens dry skin by helping to replace lost oils. It does so by forming tiny droplets in the water you wash yourself with, which leaves a thin film of moisturising oil on your skin.

Can I use Balneum Plus Bath Oil?

Balneum Plus Bath Oil is meant to be used by people who are looking for a way to treat a dry skin condition such as eczema or dermatitis. This oil is easy to use and is safe in most circumstances. There are some which warrant caution, however, and may mean you should avoid using this oil.

You should not use Balneum Plus Bath Oil and consult your doctor first about using this treatment or an alternative if any of the following applies to you:

  • You have a major skin injury (speak to your doctor if you’re unsure you have a skin injury that would be considered ‘major’)
  • You have an acute skin disease of unknown cause
  • You have a feverish and/or infectious disease
  • You suffer from heart failure
  • You have high blood pressure

If any of the above do apply to you, then it may only be possibly safe to use Balneum Plus after your doctor has said it’s ok to do so following a consultation.

If you are pregnant, then you are fine to use Balneum Plus Bath Oil.

How to use Balneum Plus Bath Oil

Balneum Plus Bath Oil should be used exactly as your doctor has told you. You can consult them or your patient information leaflet if you are ever unsure on how to use this product correctly. You should always shake the bottle before using this product to make sure the ingredients are well mixed.

When ready to use it, pour the appropriate amount of Balneum Plus liquid into the bath as it is filling. After this, you will need to stay in the bath for at least 10 minutes but not longer than 20 minutes.

The amount of oil you put into the bath depends on a few factors. If you are an adult using a full bath, then 1 capful (about 20ml) of the bath oil should be added. If the bath is for a child or baby, then a quarter of a capful (about 5ml) should be added. If you are adding the oil to a partial bath in a bowl or sink, then one-eighth (about 2.5ml) is recommended. If your skin is very dry, then you can use two or three times the above amounts mentioned before.

If applying this oil when showering, then the liquid should be evenly applied over the body without dilution and then rinsed off under the shower.

After bathing or showering with Balneum Plus bath oil, gently pat yourself dry with a towel. Rubbing or wiping your skin too much will reduce the effects of this treatment. Your doctor will provide guidance on how often to use this oil. Typically, it’s recommended that adults use this product at least 3 times a week. For babies and infants, a daily bath is recommended.

Does Balneum Plus Bath Oil have any side effects?

As is the case with any other medicinal product, Balneum Plus bath oil could potentially cause side effects but none are reported as common. The chances are you won’t notice any while using this product, though it can’t be ruled out completely. If you notice any side effects from using this oil, report them to your doctor. Seek medical attention right away if you think you’re having an allergic reaction to this product.

Can I get Balneum Plus Bath Oil without a prescription?

It is indeed possible to buy this bath oil without needing a prescription. When buying this product from Doctor-4-U, you will still need to complete a short medical questionnaire before confirming your order and your answers will be reviewed by one of our GMC/EU registered doctors. This questionnaire is given to you just so we can confirm that the item you’ve chosen is safe for you to use and there is no obvious risk of any complications occurring when using this product.

How is my order shipped to me?

When an order is ready for shipping, it is collected and delivered by either the Royal Mail or DPD depending on your preference (or possibly your location or the item you ordered). Each order is assigned a tracking number, which will be emailed to you at the time of dispatch. Your medicine will be sent in plain and discreet packaging.
