What is Sebco Ointment?

Sebco Ointment is a topical medication used to treat eczema. It contains coal tar solution and salicylic acid as its active ingredients. These components work together to relieve the symptoms of eczema, such as itching, redness, and scaling of the skin.

What is Sebco Ointment used for?

Sebco Ointment is used to manage the symptoms of eczema, including itching, inflammation, and flaking of the skin. It helps to reduce the discomfort associated with eczema and promotes the healing of the affected areas.

How does Sebco Ointment work?

Coal tar solution in Sebco Ointment helps to slow down the growth of skin cells, reduce inflammation, and alleviate itching. Salicylic acid aids in the shedding of dead skin cells from the top layer of the skin, allowing the active ingredients to penetrate deeper and exert their effects.

Who is Sebco Ointment suitable for?

Sebco Ointment is suitable for adults and children over 12 years of age who are diagnosed with eczema. It is not suitable for use in infants or young children. Additionally, individuals with a known allergy to coal tar or salicylic acid should not use Sebco Ointment.
