Hi, I would like to ask a question. I accidentally bought wrong product, can diprogenta creme replace diprocel ointment ? Thank you

The following answers regarding your current queries are just general descriptions due to the limited information provided by you. Click on this link (DoctorOnCall) for a private consultation with our doctors.

Regarding the description of your concern, ointment and cream are different based on their content. Ointment has higher oil content and cream has higher water content. It depends on the purpose of this medication. Creams are lighter and less sticky. It is best for oozy or ‘wet’ skin conditions. The viscosity of cream which is lesser than ointments also makes it a better for higher surface area skin condition to reduce cost of medication. Ointments are best used on ‘dry’ skin condition as it is occlusive. This means it traps water. The active ingredient like steroid is better absorbed when using ointment.

In order for us to provide you with an accurate choice of treatment and management, we need additional details to explore further into your current complaints. Therefore, we greatly suggest that you refer this to your nearest medical doctor. You may also click on this link (DoctorOnCall) to speak with our doctors online. We assure you that our conversations are kept in confidentiality unless additional consultation needed with other medical parties. Thank you.
