Sudocrem is an antiseptic healing cream that treats and soothes various skin conditions like nappy rashes, eczema, bed sores, and more. The antiseptic cream consists of a water-repellent base that forms a protective film thus preventing the skin irritants like moisture, detergents, urine, and stools from coming in contact with the skin.
How will it treat symptom:-For nappy rash, Sudocrem is clinically proven to soothe and heal your baby’s delicate skin and works in three simple ways: an emollient soothes sore or inflamed skin; its ingredients are recognised for healing properties; and a mild local anesthetic helps to ease pain and irritation.
For other symptoms, the treatment provides gentle yet effective relief from cuts, grazes, minor burns, acne, and eczema. It works by forming a protective layer over the vulnerable area, reducing the risk of infection, and soothing discomfort.
