Sudocrem is an antiseptic healing cream that treats and soothes various skin conditions like nappy rashes, eczema, bed sores and more.
The antiseptic cream consists of a water-repellent base that forms a protective film thus preventing the skin irritants like moisture, detergents, urine and stools coming in contact with the skin.
For 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 healing properties; and a mild local anaesthetic helps to ease pain and irritation.
For other symptoms, the treatment provides gentle yet effective relief from cuts, grazes, minor burns, acne and eczema. It works by forming a protective layer over the vulnerable area, reducing the risk of infection, and soothe discomfort.
You do not need a prescription for Sudocrem, however you will be asked to complete a short medical questionnaire by your Chemist-4-U pharmacist before we can take your order. This includes some simple questions that all pharmacies legally are required to ask before supplying this kind of product. This helps our pharmacy team to be sure that this product is the best choice for you.
Up to a third of babies and toddlers have nappy rash at any one time. It usually doesn’t develop in newborns, but all babies can get nappy rash.
Nappy rash can be caused by:
There may be red patches on your baby’s bottom, or the whole area may be red. Their skin may look sore and feel hot to touch, and there may be spots, pimples or blisters.
Minor side effects have been linked to this treatment, including irritation and allergic reaction. Symptoms may include:
Severe allergic reaction may result in swelling, redness and the development of sore and itchy bumps. Should irritation occur, you should stop using it immediately and speak to your doctor.
Sudocrem should only be used as directed. Apply the ointment conservatively to the affected area; massage in circular movements until it has been absorbed into the skin. It can be applied two to three times per day.
