Sudocrem soothes and heals your baby’s delicate skin by working in three simple ways. First it contains an emollient that soothes sore or inflamed skin. Second it works as a mild, local anaesthetic to help ease pain and irritation. Finally, a water-repellent base forms a protective barrier, helping to stop any irritants (urine and faeces) coming into contact with the skin. Sudocrem is a gentle yet effective cream, it reduces the risk of infection and contains a mild local anaesthetic to soothe discomfort. It also helps wounds to heal by forming a protective barrier over the vulnerable area.
The Sudocrem formula has remained unchanged since 1931. The unique blend of ingredients gives Sudocrem its healing properties.
The key ingredients in Sudocrem are:
Zinc oxide which reduces the loss of tissue fluid.
Sudocrem can be applied, at every nappy change, to help treat nappy rash and soothe your baby’s skin.
Step 1: Ensure your baby’s bottom is clean and dry.
Step 2: With clean and dry hands, place a small amount of Sudocrem on the tip of your finger. Remember a little goes a long way.
Step 3: Gently massage Sudocrem into the skin using light, circular movements. (Try to avoid rubbing, especially if the skin looks sore.)
Step 4: You want to create a thin, translucent film on the skin. If the white cream is still visible, you may have put too much on. (If this happens, your baby will be fine, just put a little less on next time.)
Step 5: Repeat the application of Sudocrem to your baby’s bottom as often as you need to.
Step 1: Ensure your hands are clean and dry, then place a small amount of Sudocrem on the tip of your finger.
Step 2: Gently massage Sudocrem into the affected area using light, circular movements.
Step 3: You want to create a thin, translucent film on the skin. If the white cream is still visible, you may have put too much on. (This is okay, just put a little less on next time.)
