Sudocrem Healing Cream 30gm Tube
Some elderly people who can’t move around much or who spend a lot of time in a bed or chair may need extra help with their skin. Skin complaints like incontinence dermatitis and pressure sores can be distressing, both for the sufferer and family or friends who are helping to look after them.
Sudocrem can be used to treat incontinence dermatitis. One clinical study* showed that Sudocrem was more successful than a simple Zinc cream in treatment of incontinence dermatitis, reducing redness over 7 days by 92.3%.
