Frequently Asked Questions about Preparation H

What forms does Preparation H come in?

Preparation H is available as a cream, an ointment and we also sell soothing wipes.

What is the difference between Preparation H cream and Preparation H ointment?

Preparation H cream and the ointment contain the same active ingredients. The difference is that the Preparation H ointment is thicker and hence is also good for relieving the symptoms of sore, dry skin. The Preparation H cream is thinner and hence some people find it easier to rub in. The Preparation H cream is also less likely to stain underpants or knickers than the ointment. In addition, the Preparation H ointment is best when applied on a gauze dressing, whereas the cream rubs in and so is best without a dressing.

Does Preparation H have any other uses?

Preparation H ointment and cream are also very effective at helping to heal tattoos, although you should not use either of these Preparation H products for facial tattoos. Simply apply liberally three or four times a day to the tattoo and remember to gently wash the tattoo with soap and warm water daily, as advised by your tattooist.
