What is Conotrane cream?

Conotrane cream is a protecting cream that can help to soothe irritated skin. It can be used to ease nappy rash in babies and irritation caused by things like chafing and pressure sores in adults. This barrier cream also works as an antiseptic, helping to keep your skin protected from bacteria when it’s at its most sensitive. If you’re looking for a way to protect and soothe irritated skin, Conotrane cream could help.

What can Conotrane be used for?

Conotrane can be used to ease irritation caused by rubbing or friction on your skin. Some of the  most common reasons why people use Conotrane include:

  • Nappy rash

  • Pressure sores

  • Chafing

  • Other irritated skin

Why does my baby have nappy rash?

There are lots of different causes of nappy rash, it’s a common problem that most babies get at least once. Your baby will usually get nappy rash for one of these reasons:

  • Your baby’s nappy rubbing against their skin

  • Not changing their nappy often enough

  • Using alcohol-based baby wipes

  • Using a soap, bubble bath or other detergents that irritate their skin

  • Taking antibiotics

How will Conotrane barrier cream treat a nappy rash or other skin irritation?

Conotrane works as a barrier cream, which means it provides a barrier between your skin and irritants which could be causing your symptoms. It helps to protect your skin from moisture and chafing, making it perfect for nappy rash or other irritation caused by pressure or rubbing on your skin. The ingredient benzalkonium chloride works as an antiseptic, keeping bacteria and fungi away from your skin and preventing further irritation. In the meantime, dimethicone acts as a water repellent, keeping excess moisture away from sensitive skin.

How to use this product

Apply to the affected area of skin as often as needed, gently rubbing into the skin if necessary. If you’re using this product to treat nappy rash you should re-apply this cream during every nappy change.

When should this cream not be used?

Do not use Conotrane cream if you are allergic to benzalkonium chloride, dimethicone, or any of the other listed ingredients. Speak to your doctor or pharmacist before using this cream if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. If you’re taking any other medications, including herbal remedies or medicines you obtained without a prescription, you should speak to your doctor or pharmacist before using this product. For external use only, avoid contact with eyes or other sensitive areas.

Does Conotrane cream have any side effects?

Like all medications, Conotrane cream can have side effects, although not everyone will experience them. This includes skin irritation caused by the benzalkonium chloride in the cream.
