Frequently asked questions

What is the Lymphdiaral ointment?

There are 2 ointments on the German market, which are called Lymphdiaral:

  • Lymphdiaral® DS
  • Lymphdiaral® sensitiv Salbe N

How do the two Lymphdiaral ointments differ?

There are 3 differences:

1. Regulatory approval or registration
Why is the use stated on one of the ointments but not on the other?
Lymphdiaral® DS is a homeopathic medicine registered with the BfArM (Bundesinstitut für Arzneimittel und Medizinprodukte). It is therefore without specification of a therapeutic indication. Use is based on homeopathic principles and should be recommended by the therapist.
Lymphdiaral® sensitiv Salbe N is a homeopathic medicine approved by the BfArM (Bundesinstitut für Arzneimittel und Medizinprodukte) with a defined therapeutic indication.

2. Composition
What are the ingredients of Lymphdiaral ointments?

The 4 common active ingredients of the two ointments are calendula, Conium, Mercurius biniodatus and Stibium sulfuratum nigrum. However, the ointments differ by one active substance: Colchicum, autumn crocus. This active substance is only contained in the DS ointment, but not in the sensitiv ointment. This affects the use in pregnant women, breastfeeding women, and children. Otherwise, the ointments differ only very slightly in terms of potency or amount of one of the active substances (Stibium sulfuratum nigrum).
The ointment base of the two ointments also differs to a very slight extent, which makes the consistency somewhat different.

3. Limitations of use
Who should not use the ointments?

Due to the active substance Colchicum, which is contained in Lymphdiaral® DS ointment only, the ointment must not be used during pregnancy and lactation,
Lymphdiaral® DS may otherwise be used by all adults, adolescents and children aged 7 years and older – provided there are no intolerances to any of the ingredients. In addition, use beyond one week should be medically evaluated.
Lymphdiaral® sensitiv Salbe N may also be used in children aged 2 years and older and in pregnant women and breastfeeding women. Otherwise, the same recommendations apply.

How to use Lymphdiaral DS

The ointment is applied very gently (in a circular motion). The following applies: “Gentle stroking” is preferable to massage! Apply and rub it in first in the lymph node and lymph drainage areas (neck, groin), then in the area of the symptoms.

Dosage
