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.

Cracked Skin, Chapped Skin, and Chilblains

As the hands and feet generally don't sweat or produce much sebum, they have a tendency of becoming overly dry when exposed to the cold or dry air. This often leaves them in a cracked and chapped state, which can also be painful. Chilblains occur when the ears, fingers, toes, and other extremities get cold and are then warmed up too quickly, causing blood to leak from the blood vessels. In cases like these, generously apply Oronine H Ointment to the affected areas.

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.

In addition to the above cases, Oronine H Ointment can also be used for ailments like minor burns 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.
