Product Description

Details

Contents

Ibuprofen 1% w/w, isopropyl myristate 10% w/w.

Indication

This product is an emulsion which acts as a a moisturiser, to relieve the discomfort of mild to moderate sunburn.

Directions

Adults and children 12 years and over:

  • Apply a small quantity of Soleve to the affected areas.
  •  The amount needed depends on the area which is sunburnt, but as a very rough guide, an amount ranging from a 1 penny piece to a 2 penny piece will usually be sufficient. 
  • Re-apply as required, up to eight times daily. 
  • Allow a minimum of two hours between applications.
  • Do not exceed the stated dose. 
  • Wash hands after use, unless treating them.
  • Seek medical advice if symptoms persist. 

Caution

Soleve is NOT suitable in the following circumstances:

  • People with severe sunburn – e.g. blistered skin, intense pain, intolerance of any contact with clothing, fever, chills, feeling sick and extreme exhaustion or lack of energy.
  • If more than 20% of an adult’s body surface area, or 10% of a child’s body surface area is sunburned. 
  • Babies or children under the age of 12 years with any type of sunburn. 
  • People whose sunburn has worsened or persisted for more than 2 to 3 days.
  • People with severe dehydration and/or heat stroke who need urgent medical attention – e.g. high temperature, confused or weak, or having convulsions (fits). 
  • If you are pregnant or breast-feeding. If you are suffering from any of the symptoms above, you should see a doctor. 
  • Soleve is for external use only. 
  • You should not use if you are allergic (hypersensitive) to ibuprofen, isopropyl myristate or any of the other ingredients of Soleve. 
  • You should not use if you are asthmatic, or suffer from rhinitis (allergic runny nose) or urticaria (hives) and have ever had a bad reaction to aspirin, ibuprofen or other NSAIDs in the past. 
  • In rare cases, people who have a stomach ulcer (also called a peptic or gastric ulcer), kidney problems or asthma, may be at risk. 
  • Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs such as ibuprofen can interact with blood pressure lowering drugs, and may possibly enhance the effects of medicines used to thin the blood. 
  • Soleve is not a sunscreen or sunblock, and will not protect the skin from the sun.
  • People using it should stay in the shade and keep the sunburn areas covered up. 
  • Soleve is designed for short-term use (2 to 3 days) because this is normally long enough to treat mild to moderate sunburn. If no improvement is felt after this time, or if it gets worse, this may require medical attention.
  • Soleve should not be used as a general purpose after-sun lotion.
  • Soleve should not be applied to cut, grazed, broken or diseased skin. 
  • Soleve should not be used when taking any other oral or topical ibuprofen or NSAID product.
