The preparation should be shaken before use!
For bathing, Balneum Plus is added to the bath water and thoroughly mixed until evenly distributed.
In order to correctly measure the required quantity, the inner section of the screw cap can be used as a measuring beaker.
For a full bath (approx. 150 l) 2 – 3 measuring beakers (30 – 45 ml) are used, for children’s bath (approx. 25 l) 1/3 of a measuring beaker (5 ml) is used, and for a partial bath (5 l) approx. ¼ of a teaspoon (1 ml) of Balneum Plus is used.
The bath water temperature should not exceed 36°C as the refatting effect slowly diminishes at higher temperatures. A lower bath water temperature (around 32 °C) is more favourable for fattening of the skin and better suited for treating pruritus.
The duration of the bath should be determined individually, but should not exceed 15 – 20 minutes. In the case of infants and small children a bath of only a few minutes is mostly sufficient.
For showering Balneum Plus is distributed undiluted on the moistened body and then showered off.
After bathing or showering the skin should only be lightly dabbed with a towel. Vigorous drying or rubbing reduces the therapeutic effect.
The frequency of the application of Balneum Plus depends on the type and extent of the symptoms and should be determined from individually. In general baths should be taken at intervals of 2 – 3 days; daily application is also possible if this is necessary.
