How does Sudocrem® work ?
Emmolient effect of Sudocrem® helps to soothe sore, inflamed skin whilst leaving it soft
Local anaesthetic helps to ease the pain and irritation
Other ingredients help to heal the skin
Water repellant base protects skin by forming a barrier, helping to stop irritants (uring and stools) coming into contact with the skin
Step by step guide to applying Sudocrem®
Apply a thin layer of Sudocrem® to the affected areas
Gently massage Sudocrem® into the skin using small, circular movements.
DO NOT "rub" the skin as this may cause unnecessary friction.
There should just be a translucent film left on the skin. If the area stays white after application, then too much has been applied. Renew application of Sudocrem® as required.
