Sudocrem soothes and heal your baby's delicate skin and works in three simple ways. First it contains an emollient that soothes sore or inflamed skin. Second it works as a mild, local anaesthetic to help ease pain and irritation. Finally, a water-repellent base forms a protective barrier, helping to stop any irritants (urine and faeces) coming into contact with the skin. Sudocrem is a gentle yet effective cream, it reduces the risk of infection and contains a mild local anaesthetic to soothe discomfort. It also helps wounds to heal by forming a protective barrier over the vulnerable area. It is excellent for cuts, grazes and minor burns. Sudocrem can also be used to calm and soothe eczema, and certain other skin conditions.
