Description

Sudocrem is a decades-old remedy for soothing irritated skin, including psoriasis, dry skin, cuts and burns, sunburn, and nappy rash.

First on the market in the 1930s, Sudocrem is a versatile and widely-applied cream for all the family. Its success is largely due to a combination of ingredients that are known to calm inflamed skin, keep it free of bacteria, and to nourish and protect skin from excessive moisture loss. These include zinc oxide, lanolin, and benzyl alcohol.

In addition to its antibacterial action and skin-healing qualities, it has a mild anaesthetic action that helps to mask pain. Its emollient properties also protect the skin’s natural barrier and prevent excessive moisture loss.

Its gentle, effective action means that it doesn’t sting when applied, but will help to improve most of the skin conditions described above.

Directions

For nappy rash:

Firstly, make sure that your baby’s bottom is clean and dry and that you have washed and dried your own hands.

Apply a little cream to the fingertips and massage gently into the skin with gentle, circular motions of the hand, until a fine layer is visible. Avoid rubbing and take care not to use too much cream. It can also be used to prevent nappy rash from reappearing.

For all other uses:

As per the above directions, first ensure that your hands are clean and dry. Then apply a little cream to the fingertips and massage it into the affected area until a fine layer has formed.

Precautions

Sudocrem is safe for use on children, but always keep it out of their sight and reach. It is for external use only and you should seek medical attention if swallowed. Avoid contact with the eyes.

Check ingredients for allergies before using. If you experience an unwanted skin reaction, discontinue use and consult your doctor if irritation persists.

Side Effects

No side effects of using Sudocrem have been reported and it is not known to affect, or be affected by, other pharmaceutical products.

Scientific Research

For people with Psoriasis

Hello Skin’s experts were not able to find any clinical data on the use of Sudocrem in psoriasis patients. However, this product contains zinc oxide. Topical zinc forms a protective barrier potentially preventing pathogens from irritating the skin, and is thought also to possess anti-inflammatory and soothing properties. A few studies suggest that topical zinc is effective in combination with other topically applied products, which might be because they are speculated to facilitate the uptake of other active ingredients (1).

Furthermore, the product also contains lanolin. Lanolin works by creating a water impermeable film on the skin, which reduces water evaporation across the skin surface and thereby limit drying of the skin. Some people with acne also suffers from dry skin. A study based on 709 people with acne showed that 8.6 % suffered from dry skin, characterized by a subjective feeling of dryness and tightness (2). If the skin is dry the barrier function is reduced which can induce inflammation and thereby worsen the acne.
