Ask a question about this product

What Is Sudocrem®?

Sudocrem is a market leading product for treating nappy rash. Clinically proven, it helps to soothe, heal and protect your baby’s delicate skin from further irritation.

Sudocrem has a water-repellent base which forms a protective barrier, therefore helping to stop any irritants (urine and stools) coming into contact with the skin. In addition, the emollient effect of Sudocrem can help to soothe sore inflamed skin whilst leaving the skin feeling soft.

Sudocrem can also be used for other skin conditions that require a soothing, protective antiseptic cream with additional healing, antibacterial and antifungal properties.

Sudocrem contains a number of ingredients and properties, such as:

  • hypoallergenic lanolin, to help provide emollient properties
  • zinc oxide is an astringent which reduces the loss of tissue fluid
  • benzyl benzoate and benzyl cinnamate are amongst the ingredients of Peru Balsam, recognised for its healing properties
  • benzyl alcohol is a weak local anaesthetic which acts to ease localised pain and irritation. It also acts as a disinfectant/antibacterial agent and is responsible for protection against common bacterial contaminants.

Nappy Rash

What is nappy rash?

Nappy rash is a common cause of fretful, crying babies, caused by inflamed skin that is irritated by being wet and in contact with urine and stools. It starts with a slight reddening of the skin in the nappy area resulting in soreness and discomfort.
What causes nappy rash?

Nappy rash is caused when urine comes into contact with baby’s skin for prolonged periods of time. The urine can react with stools in the nappy, affecting the skin and in severe cases this can cause breaks in the skin or even blisters. It is possible the skin could then become infected. Friction caused by the nappy rubbing against baby’s delicate skin and washing detergents not thoroughly rinsed out of terry nappies can also contribute to the development of nappy rash.

When is nappy rash more likely to occur?

Nappy rash can happen at any time and there may be no obvious reason as some babies naturally have more sensitive skin and may be more prone to the condition.

However, there are certain times when babies are especially susceptible to nappy rash, such as:

  • During teething
  • Changing from breast to bottle feeding
  • After antibiotics, which can upset baby’s digestive system, causing diarrhoea
  • Starting on solid foods
  • Drinking cows’ milk for the first time

Any of these factors can trigger the onset of the problem.

What does nappy rash look like?

You can recognise nappy rash in a number of ways:

  • Nappy rash normally starts with a slight redness in the nappy area.
  • It tends not to affect the skin folds
  • Areas such as the buttocks and upper thighs can become red and moist
  • Skin can also become sore, spotty and hot to touch
  • Patches of dry, flaky skin may also develop.

In more severe cases, blisters and pus filled spots may appear.

The best option is to prevent nappy rash occurring in the first place, but once it does you can soothe and heal nappy rash and help prevent its recurrence by using a nappy rash cream at every nappy change.

Treating

Preventing and treating nappy rash

As nappy rash can be a common condition, prevention is always better than cure, but how can you do this?

Preventing nappy rash

In theory, nappy rash would never occur if baby’s bottom was always cool, dry and completely protected from irritants and infection.

However, this is rarely the case, so the following tips can be used to help prevent nappy rash occurring:

  • Change your baby’s nappy as soon as you can when it becomes wet or soiled. As a guideline, you may find that a newborn baby requires changing about a dozen times a day and older children at least 6-8 times a day.
  • Carefully wash the nappy area with warm water and cotton wool, gently patting dry.
  • Leave your baby’s bottom exposed to the air whenever possible
  • Use a suitable cream at each nappy change to protect against irritants, such as urine and stools.
  • If you use terry or re-usable nappies, wash in mild, non-biological washing powder or detergent. Always rinse nappies well.
  • Change your baby’s nappy before putting him or her down to sleep.
  • Be alert to potential triggers of nappy rash.

Treating nappy rash

Despite your best efforts, your baby may still get nappy rash, so when this happens you need to do the following:

  • Soothe the soreness
  • Ensure the skin heals as soon as possible
  • Protect the skin from further attack by irritants or infection


This is where Sudocrem can help.

Using Sudocrem

How to use Sudocrem®

Sudocrem is a clinically proven management for nappy rash, which helps soothe, heal and protect your baby’s delicate skin.

So how does it work?

Firstly, Sudocrem is made up in a base with water-repellent properties which form a protective barrier, therefore helping to stop any irritants (urine and stools) coming into contact with the skin.

In addition, the emollient effect can help to soothe sore inflamed skin whilst leaving the skin feeling soft.

Sudocrem can be applied at every nappy change, but please remember to only apply a thin layer as a little Sudocrem goes a long, long way.

The general rule is to use a small amount and apply in a thin layer. Massage in small circular movements until the Sudocrem has disappeared leaving a translucent film. If this does not cover the affected area apply a little more. However, if the area stays white after application, too much has been applied.

Other Conditions

Using Sudocrem® for other skin conditions

Although Sudocrem is the market leader in the nappy rash sector, it canalso be used for other skin conditions as a soothing, protectiveantiseptic cream.
Care for all the family

Sudocrem can be used for:

  • cuts and abrasions
  • eczema
  • chapped hands
  • rough skin
  • bed sores


Gentle but effective, it won’t sting on application. It helps a wound to heal and forms a protective barrier over the vulnerable area.

Sudorem is available in four sizes of tub plus a 30g tube, ideal for you to take away with you on holiday or family outings.
Treating the elderly

Elderly skin is thinner and less resilient, more easily damaged and slower to heal than that of a younger person.

Elderly people, especially those with limited mobility or those who arebed or chair based, may have special skin care needs. Skin complaintssuch as incontinence dermatitis and pressure sores can be distressing,both for the sufferer and friends or relatives who are involved intheir care and wellbeing.

However, there is much that can be done to help. As a tried and testedantiseptic healing cream, Sudocrem can also be used to treat the development of these skin problems.
