Use of emollient creams

Emollient creams are skin products used to treat dry skin conditions, such as eczema and psoriasis.

They can also be used for some patients who may be in bed for lengthy periods due to illness or impaired mobility, as they are at risk of bed sores or ulcers.

Emollient products come in a variety of forms – creams, lotions or gels. All cover the skin with a protective film to reduce water loss. They can be very flammable, so are a fire safety concern.

If you care for someone who needs emollient creams, lotions or gels, you can help to keep them safe by understanding and reducing the related risks.
