Have a peek inside any baby changing bag and I guarantee that you'll find something from Sudocrem. Mothers have sworn by it for years for treating nappy rash but did you know that Sudocrem Care & Protect* (which comes in a handy tube) can be used to prevent nappy rash from occurring in the first place?
What is nappy rash?
Just incase you're new to the world of nappies, babies and bottoms, nappy rash is an irritation of the skin, which is often caused and aggravated by babies’ wee and poo. The rash will look slightly red and can be both sore and uncomfortable for little ones. Nappy rash is extremely common, so don’t panic – you’re not doing anything wrong! If your baby does have nappy rash, pop on a layer of Sudocrem Antiseptic Healing Cream, as it will help to sooth your baby’s skin and get rid of the rash. And if you are worried at all, you can always give your Health Visitor a quick call!
Preventing nappy rash with Sudocrem
You can help to prevent your baby from getting nappy rash by ensuring you change them regularly and popping on a thin layer of Sudocrem Care & Protect. Sudocrem Care & Protect is a hypoallergenic, triple-care ointment that is designed to create a barrier between your baby’s skin and any wee or poo they do in their nappies. It has a much thinner consistency than the original Sudocrem and is therefore easier to apply. You only need a small amount (a little goes a long way) and the cream is suitable to use each time you change your baby’s nappy.
As well as creating a protective barrier, the ointment also conditions babies’ skin, leaving it soft and smooth. I’ve been using it on Arthur ever since he was born and I’ve noticed that he hasn’t really had any nappy rash at all, so it obviously helps a great deal!
What’s great about Sudocrem Care & Protect is that it comes in a handbag / changing bag-friendly tube. You can simply flip the lid up and squeeze a little out, without having to faff around with tub tops or dip your fingers in. Simply squeeze a little out and apply it using gentle circular motions.
Sudocrem Care & Protect can be purchased from most pharmacies and supermarkets. If you’ve got a little one on the way, it’s definitely a must-have product to stock up on!
