Your source of good luck when exploring Japan!

Summer is the time to get outside and go play. When cuts and scrapes happen, treat your family with “Oronine H Ointment.”

Summer is a super-fun season for a variety of outdoor activities, like mountain climbing and swimming in the ocean! However, the more outdoor activities you take part in, the more your chance of falling and hurting yourself goes up too. Even if you’re having plenty of fun on a trip, you’re going to need to find medicine to deal with such incidents if they occur. This article will introduce “Oronine H Ointment,” an ointment for skin problems that is a household staple in Japan.

Oronine H Ointment

“Oronine H Ointment” has been a skin treatment staple in many Japanese households for over 60 years. It helps to relieve a wide range of skin problems, including acne, minor cuts and burns, chapped skin, chilblains, and more. The ointment is smooth and creamy, so it’s easy to apply to your skin. The main ingredient of Oronine H Ointment is bactericidal liquid chlorhexidine gluconate. It aids in preventing the infection of minor cuts, scrapes, and burns.

Minor Cuts and Scrapes

In the case of minor cuts and scrapes, we advise cleaning the affected area before applying ointment. Oronine H Ointment disinfects the wound and prevents suppuration. We recommend always carrying a tube of Oronine H Ointment with you when you go out on your adventures, just in case!

Acne

The first step to getting rid of acne is to keep your face clean by using an oil-removing face wash regularly. Reducing your sugar intake, having regular bowel movements, and avoiding oil-based cosmetics is helpful as well. You can also apply a small amount of Oronine H Ointment to existing pimples. If it's too sticky, just wipe the area lightly with a towel or gauze.

Pimples are caused by the excessive production of sebum in the pores.

Minor Burns

Burns that turn red but do not blister are considered minor burns, which can be safely treated at home. In the case of minor burns, applying a layer of Oronine H Ointment to the burn and wrapping it in gauze can help to alleviate the condition of the skin.

In addition to the above cases, Oronine H Ointment can also be used for ailments like chapped skin in cold seasons and athlete’s foot.
Of course, you should consult your doctor if your symptoms do not improve, but it’s always a good idea to keep a bottle of Oronine H Ointment at home.
