webGP -Getting help for rash from your pharmacist

If you are unfamiliar with the various treatment options for rash then check out our self-help page. Remember to always discuss over the counter treatment with your local pharmacist so they can check if it is suitable for your condition and safe for you to take.

Emollients are the mainstay of treatment for eczema and dry skin and should be applied at least twice a day.

Topical Emollients

If you suspect you have a bacterial eye infection causing conjunctivitis then you can obtain antibiotic eye drops over the counter at your local pharmacy.
