    I started to Use DermAid Soft 1% cream for a skin irrigation around my nose as recommended by the pharmacist. As it worked quite well, I tried it as a general morning and evening moisturizer to see if it would reduce small under skin pimples and general redness in my skin, it is working an absolute miracle, I have been using it for 2 weeks now and I have no more pimples and my skin is the best it has been in years. It is ok to continue to use it on a daily basis if I am not getting any negative reactions to it?

    Hi Holly,

    We don't recommend regular daily application of DermAid to the face. You could instead try the Egoderm Cream or Ointment, which are both suitable for regular long term application. Both of these products assist in reducing redness and inflammation.

    Kind Regards,
    The Ego Team.

    Hello just want to ask if i can put this over my baby's face??????

    Hi Jeng,

    We would suggest using the 0.5% concentration for a short period of time first. Depending on what you are using it for your child (it is indicated on the pack), it is fine to use on the face for no longer than a week.
    See your doctor or pharmacist if symptoms persist.

    Kind Regards,
    The Ego Team.

    I have a small patch of dry skin that won't go away using just moisturiser. I have started putting DermAid 1% on it. If it is stil dry 10 minutes after applying, can I put normal moisturiser on top? i.e. cetaphil?

    Hi Anthony,

    You do not need to apply a moisturiser over the top of DermAid. We recommend against it, as we cannot know for certain what ingredients are used in other products that may or may not interact with the active ingredients in DermAid.

    Kind Regards,
    The Ego Team.
