Sudocrem Antiseptic Healing Cream
Advantages: Effective, little goes a very long way
When I was pregnant I registered for all of the different mum and baby groups and ended up getting a whole load of different samples and money off coupons. One thing I had a few samples of was Sudocrem, the sample pots were a nice size and lasted a good year before having to go out and buying it for myself. Sudocrem is apparently the nation's favourite nappy cream and I can see why.
Sudocrem is widely available to purchase from Supermarkets, chemists and anywhere that sells baby related products. There are a few different pot sizes available to buy, I think I paid around £5 for a 400g pot a year or two ago.
I don't think the packaging has changed that much since it was first introduced to the market almost 80 years ago. It's mainly grey in colour and has a white and red sticker going all of the way around it with the product name and information on it. The lid has a small stick out ledge that you use to simply pull the lid off the pot. I remember vividly when my daughter at around 8 months grabbed hold of the pot and stuck her nose straight inside it so it is worth keeping out the reach of exploring babies!
The cream is pure white in colour and has a very thick consistency, thicker than what I imagined but it doesn't make it hard to apply as it melts as you rub it. The smell is very newborn baby like, that's the only way I can describe it, it isn't much of a scent but it does have a faint clean smell to it.
To use the Sudocrem you only have to lightly rub the tip of your finger over the cream in the pot then gentle apply it to sore areas rubbing it on a circular motion. With Sudocrem a little bit definitely goes a long way so it's best to start off with a tiny bit and if you need a little more, go back to the pot and get more. The first couple of times I used it my daughters bum used to be white as I used way too much, I learnt that by using a little bit left a nice protective layer on her bum. I found that by using this when my daughters bum was starting to look a bit sore, it stopped it turning into full blown nappy rash. If she did have nappy rash this soothed the symptoms quickly and effectively. I still use it occasionally now as my daughter is still in nappies by night and sometimes in the morning she looks a little sore and it gets rid of the redness quickly.
Sudocrem can also be used for a number of different things such as cuts and burns, minor grazes, sunburn, eczema , acne and bed sores. I haven't used it for anything other than on my daughters bum but I know my brother uses this on the spots on his face and he is pleased with the results of using this regularly.
I'd definitely recommend Sudocrem along with most other mums. It has been around for years and years for a reason, it is effective at getting rid of nappy rashes in a quick and gentle way.
Summary: Great at treating and preventing nappy rash
