23 Dec 2019
Last update :

Fall and winter in Japan are fun seasons to go out and see red leaves, snowscapes, and illumination events held in various locations.
However, you might worry about skin troubles like wounds, cracked skin, and chapped skin when you’re out having fun. Sometimes you may have to rush out and get medicine, too.
This article will introduce Oronine H ointment, commonly used as a home remedy in Japanese households.

Oronine H Ointment

“Oronine H Ointment” has long been a skin treatment medicine in Japanese households. It helps to relieve a variety of skin problems, including acne, skin eruption, minor cuts and burns, chapped skin, chilblains, athlete’s foot (not leaking or oozing), and more. The ointment is smooth enough to easily spread on the skin. The active ingredient of Oronine H Ointment is chlorhexidine gluconate which is widely used as an antiseptic.

Cracked Skin, Chapped Skin, and Chilblains

As the hands and feet generally don't sweat or produce much sebum, they have a tendency to become 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, and puncture wounds, 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.

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 are 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 minor burns and athlete’s foot (not oozing or leaking).
Of course, you should consult your doctor if your symptoms do not improve, but it’s a good idea to keep a bottle of Oronine H Ointment for use at home.

In Japan, most drugstores carry Oronine H Ointment, but we will introduce some stores near major stations where you can get it.
