Unguentum M Cream contains a mixture of liquid and white soft paraffin. The paraffin oils form a barrier on the surface of the skin that helps to prevent water from evaporating and also protects the skin. This helps to keep the skin moisturized and reduces redness, scaling, and itching associated with dry skin conditions, such as eczema and dermatitis. The cream can also be used to protect raw or rubbed areas of skin, like nappy rash.
