Sudocrem Antiseptic Healing Cream
Advantages: It is simply a pot of magic!
Disadvantages: No faulting this product at all!
We have been using Sudocrem since my daughter was born 6 years ago and it is still a regular in our house even now. In fact, I would actually say that this is a staple in our house rather than a regular. We first encountered Sudocrem in the Bounty packs you get when you are pregnant or the one you get when you have given birth. There was a tiny little sample pot of Sudocrem in there and we have never looked back since using it.
Now, I should say what Sudocrem actually is. Sudocrem is a antiseptic cream which can be used for nappy rash, eczema, bed sores, sunburn and minor cuts and burns - I have also used it when I have suffered from thrush and it has worked very effectively. It is a barrier cream which helps to heal the problems I stated above.
Sudocrem comes in three different sizes which are 60g, 250g and 400g. This isn't the cheapest product on the marker but personally I would never use anything else. It is priced between £2-£6 depending on which size you choose to buy. It is available almost everywhere which sells baby care items.
It comes in a boring looking grey pot which has a strip around the lid which you peel off to open it. There is a red and white Sudocrem label wrapped around the pot with instructions on how to use and ingredients. The actual product is a white cream. It is very thick and gives off a lavender smell which is really nice. It isn't at all greasy. It is easy to apply and it spreads across a child's bottom and affected areas easily.
Sudocrem is ideal for nappy rash because is contains emoliant which soothes sore and inflammed skin as well as being a mild anaesthetic for the soreness. On top of that it repells water so if you put it on your child and then replace their nappy and they soil their nappy with urine or faeces the Sudocrem will stop them coming into contact with the skin and causing further irritation.
The cream is really easy to apply, it is just a case of scooping out some of the cream and applying it to the area that needs it. It absorbs into the skin quickly and easily.
Sudocrem always worked wonders on my little girl's nappy rash. She only ever suffered from minor bouts of it but it always seemed to clear up within 24 hours of being applied. We used to apply it at every nappy change when she suffered from it. Sometimes we would use it as a preventative measure and apply it even when she didn't have any nappy rash. Now she is 6 we still have it in the house just in case we ever need it. Sometimes she will come up in a rash on her cheeks in the winter and we always put Sudocrem on it when it comes up as it clears it up quickly. My husband actually burnt his arm on the oven the other day and he put some on it and it dried it up really nicely and he said it took the sting of the burn right out of it. I have also used it when I have had thrush and it has stopped the itching and again cleared it up quicker than if I had used my usual cream.
It also works great on spots! When I have not had any Lush available in the house, I have dabbed a little Sudocrem on and they have dried up instantly and the redness almost automatically goes down. I find that a 250g pot lasts about a year which is fine as the product has a long shelf life.
Highly recommended. I cannot fault this product at all. It is like a little tub of magic which works on many common skin complaints.
