Dermoplast spray is a first aid and pain-relieving aerosol spray. It is specifically formulated to provide safe, effective pain and itch relief for the whole family which is highly recommended by doctors and nurses.
The spray is a local anesthetic that works by temporarily blocking nerve signals or loss of feeling in the body in the affected areas causing instant relief. Menthol works by causing the skin to experience a cooling then warm feeling relieving pain.
It is used in the treatment of minor burns, cuts, insect bites, postpartum pain, and discomfort caused by hemorrhoids. A cut is defined as minor if; it is not deep, does not need stitching; the wound stops bleeding in less than 10 minutes and is easy to clean. A minor scrape is one that stops bleeding by itself, is small in size, and is easily cleaned. Minor burns are first-degree burns affecting only the epidermis. A person who has had at least 3 doses of tetanus vaccine in the last 5 years can safely use the spray. This spray is also useful after a bikini/Brazilian wax.
Dermoplast spray comes in a plastic blue or red-capped 2.75OZ can. It is a safe pain reliever that provides comfort conveniently without causing embarrassment to a new mother after a bathroom visit.
The no-touch spray cools and numbs sore private parts for mothers who had a vaginal birth and wounds from cesarean section. It eases pains from tears, bruising, and swellings that occur during childbirth giving a mother time to bond with her newborn. Buy, spray, relax and watch your stitches heal.
