Dry skin after treatment

our soon has been prescribed Diprobase cream for use on his skin, but he finds the smell unpleasant.

Anybody know of any skin creams, that can be used as an alternative?

many thanks 

  • Hi Vanners,

    I don't like the smell of it either! Some of my patients find that AVeeno helps for dry skin and it absorbs in well. Hope this helps.

  • Hi Mark, I have had a lot of skin treatment over my years then radiotherapy as part of my second SCT and moved away from Diprobase on to Hydromol Cream and found it great and no smell.

    I do hope your son is doing well.
