Antiseptic Healing Cream

Details

Sudocrem Antiseptic Healing Cream has been mum’s simple, effective ally for over 80 years and is great for soothing sore skin and treating nappy rash. Sudocrem Antiseptic Healing Cream is versatile enough to be used by the whole family for all of life’s little dramas and can help with so much more than just treating babies’ bottoms!

Treating nappy rash

Sudocrem is clinically proven to soothe and heal your baby’s delicate skin and works in three simple ways: an emollient soothes sore or inflamed skin; its ingredients are recognised for their healing properties; and a mild local anaesthetic helps to ease pain and irritation.

Cuts, grazes and minor burns

Sudocrem provides gentle yet effective relief from cuts, grazes and minor burns. It helps to heal wounds by forming a protective layer over the vulnerable area, reducing the risk of infection, and also contains a mild local anaesthetic to soothe discomfort.

Acne

Sudocrem Antiseptic Healing Cream is the nation’s favourite nappy rash cream but did you know it is also excellent for treating skin conditions such as acne? Sudocrem Antiseptic Healing Cream helps to soothe and heal while protecting the affected area from further infection.

Eczema

Eczema is a dry skin condition that affects as many as one in five children and one in twelve adults in the UK. It may cause cracked and sore skin that can be painful and difficult to keep hydrated. Sudocrem Antiseptic Healing Cream can be used to calm, soothe and heal eczema and other skin conditions. The unique formula works like this:

  • Anhydrous hypoallergenic lanolin is an emollient, soothing and softening skin, while zinc oxide reduces the loss of fluid
  • Benzyl alcohol has local anaesthetic and antiseptic properties, helping to reduce discomfort
  • A water-repellent excipient base, including paraffin and other waxes, creates a protective seal

How to use?

Nappy Rash

Apply Sudocrem Antiseptic Healing Cream to help treat and heal existing 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 the cream into the skin using light, circular movements. Try to avoid rubbing, especially if the skin looks sore

Step 4: Try to create a thin, translucent film on the skin. If white cream is still visible then you may have used too much (don’t worry, your baby will be fine, just remember to use a little less next time)

Repeat these steps until the rash has cleared. Then apply Sudocrem Care & Protect at every change to help prevent nappy rash.

Other uses - from minor sunburn to cuts and grazes

Step 1: Ensuring your hands are clean and dry, place a small amount of Sudocrem Antiseptic Healing Cream on the tip of your finger

Step 2: Gently massage the cream into the affected area using light, circular movements

Step 3: Try to create a thin, translucent film on the skin. If the white cream is still visible then you may have used too much (this is ok, just remember to use a little less next time)
