Sudocrem Uses: How to use from nappy rash to chaffing

Sudocrem Uses

Hello friends! Today I want to have a chat about Sudocrem and all it’s uses! Mary is 9 months now, which means I’ve spent the last 9 months falling in love with this product! It’s such a must-have multi-use product which is totally under recognised by the world – well, the world who doesn’t have an under five year old! Today I thought I would share some uses for this amazing product and hopefully it might encourage you to pick up a tube for yourself! Because this stuff, really does everything! Ok! Let’s go!

What is sudocrem?

Before we get started, I need to tell you what Sudocrem is. It is a antibacterial and antifungal cream which hydrates and also acts as a barrier – all in one. It’s a waxy consistency which is water-resistant, so it helps heal and soothe skin, whilst locking out external factors and killing bacterial and fungal matter. Oh and it’s also got a very mild pain relief built in, so if you have a minor cut or graze, it will help soothe any pain as well as protect it and help it heel.

When to use Sudacrem?

Apply it as soon as you need and if you want it work extra hard, apply a thicker layer at night. 

Because Sudocrem Antiseptic Healing Cream is mild, it won’t hurt when applied. It has a moderate local anaesthetic to ease discomfort and can lower the risk of infection. Additionally, it creates a barrier of protection over the exposed region and promotes wound healing. So it’s a very practical little tub to have about the house, car, first aid kit or handbag. 

Sudocrem is GREAT for Nappy rash

Sudocrem Antiseptic Healing Cream is an antibacterial cream that can be used to treat existing nappy rash. It cam be found at most supermarkets, corner shops, pharmacies and pretty much everywhere. If your baby develops symptoms of nappy rash then apply Sudocrem Antiseptic Healing Cream to the affected area at every nappy change to soothe and heal your baby’s skin. Trust me, it works a treat! But it’s not just nappy rash it’s great for, it works on so many other skin conditions.

Can I use Sudocrem on my newborn? 

Yes, you can use Sudocrem on every skin, including a newborn if they have nappy rash. When the child is older, it’s worth keeping a pot for other skin conditions like dryness, insect bites, sunburn and grazes. 

Will Sudocrem help cracked skin?

Yes, Sudocrem works on dry skin which is caused by skin conditions like eczema, but it’s also great for dry skin on your heels which can get cracked. It will also help to ease any pain associated with cracked skin. 

Where can I buy Sudocrem? Is it an over-the-counter product? 

Amazingly, Sudocrem is not an over-the-counter product. It’s readily available on supermarket and pharmacy shelves. It’s an effective product which is super safe to use, and whilst it’s antibacterial and has a mild pain relief, it’s very gentle. You will generally find it in the baby section in stores, but it’s suitable for everyone. So please don’t feel it’s for mums and babies only! Online you can find it at Amazon, boots, feelunique and many other places, also, do check the prices compared to the size of the pot, as it’s much more cost effective to buy a large pot than a tiny pot. You can always decant it into smaller tubs for on-the-go use too! 

Does Sudocrem help spots?

Yes, it might seem strange to put a moisturiser on a spot, but it’s an antibacterial cream which can help clear skin, protect skin and soothe it too. Most people like to use it overnight to give it a good amount of time to work and also the cream can appear white on the skin. 

Can you leave Sudocrem on overnight?

Yes, if you have spots or acne you can put it on and leave it overnight to work it’s magic. You can use it all over the face, or targeted on your spots. Whatever you prefer.

Is Sudocrem good for cracked heels?

Yes, it’s great for cracked heels. It’s anti bacterial, anti fungal and has a mild pain relief too, so not only will it keep any heel cracks clean, but it will also soothe any pain and help moisturise and heel skin too. 

Is Sudocrem expensive? 

No, Sudocrem is really affordable. Some of the smaller handbag sized pots are a little more per ml than the bigger pots, so I would advise you to buy a big pot as it’s a lot more cost effective and if you have a little empty jar, you can always decant a little and pop it in your handbag. 

Which is better, Savlon or Sudocrem? 

Both are great antiseptic creams. Savlon is a lot lighter and rubs in faster with no trace, but it lacks the waxy finish, so it’s not a barrier cream or a moisturiser. Whilst Savlon works effectively on cuts, scrapes, stings, bites and grazes, you can’t use it for the multitude of aliments than you can use Sudocrem for, for instance Sudocrem works for nappy rash, spots, dry skin and chafing, where as Savlon is unsuitable for these issues. 

Should you rub Sudocrem in?

The best way to apply Sudocrem is by applying it in multiple thin layers. Just apply a small amount to the skin and rub it in, and add more if you think you need it. Usually, one layer is enough, but if you wish to add more, if you need a good barrier, then feel free to rub it in and repeat. A little goes a long way, so it’s better to build it up gradually, that being said, if I have sore, dry cracked heels, I tend to put on one really thick layer and let it work it’s magic overnight.

My favourite ways to use Sudocrem

Nappy rash – Sudocrem is an amazing nappy rash cream. It leaves a waterproof protective layer to help protect your babies skin from moisture and helps heel it. Just apply it to any red areas after each nappy change until it’s cleared up. 

Cracked heels – Good foot creams can be VERY expensive, but Sudocrem is really affordable so you can layer it on generously and sort those cracks out fast. It’s antibacterial and anti fungal, so it’s great to use on feet and it really helps heel cracks. Plus if you let your cracks get too deep and they get sore, Sudocrem will help relieve the pain. 

Minor cuts, stings and grazes – If you have been stung by a nettle, bee, wasp or any other creepy crawly, then Sudocrem is great for soothing the skin and also keeping it clean. Again, it’s antibacterial and has an antiseptic, so it will clean the skin and stop the stinging in a jiffy, I even used it after I had a tick bite to help keep the nasty germs they carry at bay – I also took antibiotics. 

Heel Spots – I don’t get many spots, but when I do, they are big, angry and sore. Sudocrem helps heel them quick and also ease the pain. It’s also a lot more affordable than spot creams, which again, can be very expensive. 

Chub Rub – It’s GREAT for chub rub, less for preventing it, but more for heeling it. We have all gone out without chub rub cream and realised part way through the day it was a big error and Sudocrem will help cure those burning thighs. 

Soothe sunburn – Sudocrem is great for sunburn as it helps to ease the pain, lock in moisture and add more. I would recommend using this as well as a cooling aftersun and then you get the cooling effect of the aftersun with the pain relief and nourishment of the Sudocrem. 

Tame flyaway hair – I don’t know about you, but I often end up using Sudocrem to tame my flyaway hair. Because I always have a tub in my bathroom, it’s always handy and it just fixes the flyaways FAST!
