Dosage/Direction for Use
Unless the doctor prescribes otherwise, a ribbon of Mucopolysaccharide polysulfate cream about 3 to 5 cm in length (if necessary even more) is applied to the affected part once or twice daily and made to enter the skin by slight friction until the cream has disappeared.
In very painful inflammations and thrombosis, the affected area and its vicinity must carefully be spread over with Mucopolysaccharide polysulfate cream and covered with a piece of linen soaked with it. To intensify its effect, Mucopolysaccahride polysulfate cream should be rubbed into the further vicinity of the affected area.
To loosen hard scars, the cream is massaged vigorously into them.
