What is Domeboro’s Astringent Solution, and how does it work for skin irritation?

Domeboro’s Astringent Solution is an OTC product that cools and cleanses irritated skin and soothes inflammation. The active ingredients of Domeboro are aluminum sulfate and calcium acetate. Domeboro is available at most pharmacies or online. Other similar brands that contain the same active ingredients are Gordon’s Boro-Packs and Pedi-Boro Soak Paks.

Instructions for using Domeboro’s Astringent Solution

  • Dissolve one powder packet into 16 oz of lukewarm water for a 1:40 dilution.
  • Moisten a clean, soft, white cloth such as gauze, a thin diaper, a clean pillowcase cut into strips, a handkerchief, or a small towel with the solution.
  • Wring out the cloth gently until damp (but not soaking wet).
  • Place the damp cloth loosely over the affected area for 10 to 15 minutes.
  • If the gauze or other material dries out, moisten it again before removing it from the skin to avoid damaging your skin.
  • Repeat two to three times daily.
  • Discard the solution and the cloth or gauze after each use.

What other products might be recommended for inflamed and irritated skin?

Sometimes, getting to the source of the problem is recommended to alleviate skin issues. This is especially true if you have been diagnosed with conditions such as rosacea or eczema. Finding treatments for these conditions can soothe the skin, while over-the-counter or prescription topical products and soaks can help ease the skin while the treatment works.
