Sudocrem Antiseptic Healing Cream is a clinically proven treatment for nappy rash, which helps soothe, heals and protects your baby's delicate skin. It can also be used for other skin conditions as a soothing, protective antiseptic cream and will help to treat skin irritation, cuts, grazes, minor burns and sunburn.
Sudocrem has a water-repellent base which forms a protective barrier, therefore helping to stop any irritants (urine and stools) coming into contact with the skin. In addition, the emollient effect of Sudocrem can help to soothe sore inflamed skin whilst leaving the skin feeling soft. Sudocrem can also be used for other skin conditions that require a soothing, protective antiseptic cream with additional healing, antibacterial and antifungal properties. Size 60g

Direction for use
Sudocrem can ease the pain and irritation of nappy rash, whilst other ingredients can help to heal the skin. It can be applied at every nappy change, but please remember to only apply a thin layer as a little Sudocrem goes a long, long way.
The general rule is to use a small amount and apply in a thin layer. Massage in small circular movements until the Sudocrem has disappeared leaving a translucent film. If this does not cover the affected area apply a little more. However, if the area stays white after application, too much has been applied.
Always read product label and keep away medicine from the reach of children
