Aleppo Soap is not a medicine and cannot, in itself, constitute a medical treatment. It is a therapeutic supplement, which constitutes a beneficial adjuvant and complementary aid to other conventional therapies:
Aleppo Soap is used as a therapeutic supplement to treat cold sores (labial herpes) by acting effectively on herpetic vesicles; infant diaper rash, for frequent washing of layettes; keratosis of the heel (psoriasis); ulcer of the legs; hand dermatitis and atopic dermatitis (eczema).
It constitutes a first choice therapy for the local treatment of bacterial dermatoses such as impetigo, ecthyma, osteofolliculitis, vulgar sycosis or boils. In fact, washing with Aleppo Soap considerably eliminates the germs present on the surface of the skin and therefore treats bacterial dermatitis.
Due to its disinfecting power, it may be sufficient to prevent common skin diseases (favus, herpes tonsurans, pityriasis, microsporia).
Along with the aetiological treatment of vulvar pruritus, symptomatic treatment consists of local individual hygiene measures and in particular the wearing of cotton underwear washed with Aleppo Soap.
It is effective against superficial burns. By its detergent and disinfectant action, Aleppo Soap eliminates bacteria present on the surface of the skin and therefore prevents any risk of infection.
Aleppo Soap is also used for the disinfection of small skin wounds. It has a disinfectant power which results more from the physical action of its foam on the bacterial environment than from its chemical effect.
