Metanium Nappy Rash Ointment information
What is Metanium Nappy Rash Ointment used for?
Due to their incredibly sensitive skin, around 1 in 4 babies who wear nappies will develop nappy rash at some point. Among other causes, Nappy rash is usually triggered by your baby’s skin rubbing against their nappy for a prolonged period of time.
Most babies may not feel any discomfort from nappy rash, but if the rash goes undetected or is left untreated, your baby is likely to become uncomfortable and distressed. If this happens, Metanium nappy rash ointment can be used to treat the affected area by soothing the skin and gently relieving any skin irritation.
How does Metanium Nappy Rash Ointment work?
There are three active ingredients in Metanium ointment which work in combination to treat nappy rash. These are:

These ingredients help to form a protective barrier over your baby’s sensitive skin, protecting from further skin irritation. They also act as a water repellant, preventing damp conditions which can aggravate the rash.
