About Sudocrem

  • What is Sudocrem?

    Sudocrem is most commonly known for its use in treating and preventing nappy rash in babies. The cream acts as a barrier, forming a protective layer on the skin's surface, which soothes the skin and helps to prevent irritants like urine and faeces from coming into direct contact with it. It also has mild antiseptic properties to help reduce inflammation and promote healing, and a local anaesthetic to help ease pain and irritation.

    Sudocrem can also be used to treat a number of other skin conditions as listed above.

  • How to use Sudocrem for nappy rash

    Wash your hands thoroughly before applying Sudocrem to your baby’s skin.

    1. Clean and dry your baby’s bottom.
    2. Put a small amount of Sudocrem on the tip of your finger.
    3. Making gentle, circular movements, massage the Sudocrem into the skin. Try to avoid rubbing, especially if the skin looks sore.
    4. Try to create a thin, translucent film on the skin. If white cream is still visible then you may have used too much. This will not harm your baby, but it is better to use less so as to avoid mess or wastage.

    Repeat these steps until the rash has cleared.
