Maximum therapeutic effect is obtained by using Pinetarsol Solution in the bath, but it is still effective if used under the shower or as a sponge bath.
Bath: Add 15-30 mL to a tepid bath (5 mL to a baby's bath or hand basin) and bathe for 5-10 min once daily; more often in severe cases. Do not use soap. Dry gently. Pinetarsol Solution does not stain skin, bath or towel.
Shower: Apply directly to the wet skin, leave for a few minutes, rinse. Do not use soap. Dry gently.
Patients in Bed, Elderly: Add 10 mL in 3 L of warm water; sponge freely. Do not use soap. Dry gently.
