Using Sudocrem Antiseptic Healing Cream for nappy rash
To help treat nappy rash with Sudocrem Antiseptic Healing Cream:
- Ensure your baby’s bottom is clean and dry.
- With clean and dry hands, place a small amount of Sudocrem on the tip of your finger. Remember, a little goes a long way.
- Gently massage the cream into the skin using light, circular movements. Try to avoid rubbing, especially if the skin looks sore.
- 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.
