How to mix Orliderm™ Ointment
We recently changed the formulation and mixing instructions to make it easier for parents to mix Orliderm ointment. In the mixing video we refer to the new formulation as improved Orliderm ointment.
Step 1: Combining
In the sterile specimen cup, combine
- A single tube (2 oz) of 1% hydrocortisone ointment
- 1 full “pump” of Purell®
Step 2: Mixing
Use the applicator stick to vigorously mix the ingredients for 45 seconds.
When properly mixed, the ointment should be creamy, smooth and white (like yogurt).
The ointment may be stored up to one year after mixing it. After one year, discard it.
Step 3: Quality check
We recommend that you watch the video below to help you make sure that the ointment is correctly mixed.
Step 4: Storage
Put the lid on the container. You may keep the ointment at room temperature during the two-week treatment period. Then store the ointment in a refrigerator.
You may store the ointment up to one year after mixing it. After one year, discard it.
