How to use

Read and retain the enclosed patient information leaflet.

Apply a small quantity of lotion to the affected areas. The amount needed depends on the area which is sunburnt, but as a very rough guide, an amount ranging from a 1 penny piece to a 2 penny piece will usually be sufficient. Re-apply as required, up to eight times daily. Allow a minimum of two hours between applications. Do not exceed the stated dose. Wash hands after use, unless treating them. Seek medical advice if symptoms persist.

• It is very important to protect the skin against sun damage. Spend time in the shade between 11am and 3pm.

Sun protection should be applied thickly at least 30 minutes before sun exposure.

• Sun protection should be at least SPF 30 and should block both UVA and UVB rays.

• Sun protection should be re-applied regularly,especially after swimming.

Sunglasses should be worn to protect the eyes,and should have UV filters.

• The face and scalp burn readily,so wear a hat with a brim.

• Cover easily burnt areas such as the shoulders and upper arms.

Hazards and Cautions


Do not use on infected, diseased, damaged or broken
skin (this includes skin with sunburn blisters).

• Not to be used if sunburn is severe or covers a large
proportion of the body.

• Not to be used on children under the age of 12 years.

• Not to be used during pregnancy or breast-feeding.

• Although there is less risk of Soleve causing the
complications that sometimes arise when ibuprofen
(or similar anti-inflammatory painkillers) are taken by
mouth, patients with asthma, an active peptic ulcer,
or a history of kidney problems should seek medical
advice before use.

• Do not use in cases of sensitivity to any of the
ingredients, or if allergic to aspirin and other painkillers



Do not store above 25°C. Replace cap tightly after use
