Bepanthen Nappy Rash Ointment
Advantages: Works quickly
I've always used sudocrem on my girls bottoms as a barrier cream at bedtime, this has always worked really well apart from the couple of times that my girls have had diarrhoea. I've found on these occasions that nappy rash has appeared quite quickly and that using sudocrem at each nappy change hasn't helped. The first time that I realised that sudocrem wasn't helping with the nappy rash I reached for one of the free samples of Bepanthen that I received when I was pregnant and was very impressed with the results.
Bepanthen comes in a tube which is a bit fiddly when you are changing a nappy and have forgotten to take the lid of first. A new tube needs to have the foil covering to the tube pierced and the lid is used to do this.
The tube comes in a box and all the instructions and ingredients are printed on both the tube and the box. You are also provided with a really helpful information sheet which includes treatment and prevention tips as well as explaining about nappy rash.
Bepanthen is a nappy care ointment, it is clear when applied to the skin and is gentle enough to not upset your little one too much when you apply it. It isn't messy and the tube allows you to apply small quantities using your fingers. The ointment works by protecting the skin from the contents of the nappy. One of my girls was really suffering last week with her final back teeth coming through. This resulted in a few days of nasty nappies and nappy rash appeared after a day. As soon as I started using the Bepanthen I noticed a difference and by the next nappy change the worst patch of nappy rash was looking much better. The nappy rash didn't clear up completely until the diarrhoea stopped but the ointment kept it to a minimum and my daughter didn't seem to be suffering any discomfort from it.
Price and availability
A 100g tube currently (March 2013) costs £5 in Tesco and £6.49 in Boots, this is expensive but I only use it as a treatment rather than an everyday product and when your baby has nappy rash this is a small price to pay to make them better.
Would I recommend?
Yes, definitely worth having to hand if you have a baby. Nappy rash isn't nice and this ointment treats the rash really quickly.
