Usefulness of Ego’s site:
Ego’s site is designed and written to provide an initial and useful general practical explanation of a range of common skin conditions with possible appropriate treatments. Bearing in mind the uniqueness of every person it is not feasible to set out in detail every common skin condition and the comprehensive treatment which might apply in each particular case. While Ego’s site may offer information about a particular problem Ego cannot confirm that that problem is what the user has nor the right treatment in the circumstances. It is correct to seek advice from the appropriate health care professional especially when a condition does not respond to treatment within a reasonable length of time.

Changes to knowledge may occur quickly and further, each person is different and responds to treatment differently. As a guide, a milder product should be used initially, gradually increasing the therapeutic strength of the product used, if necessary. Occasionally, product improvements require change and the products may change without notice.

However, Ego does not warrant the content will be error-free or that the site or the server that operates it are free of viruses or other harmful components. If your use of Ego’s site results in the need for servicing or replacing property, material, equipment or data, Ego will not be responsible for such costs.
