Chilblains and pressure sores

Sudocrem Antiseptic Healing Cream is the nation’s favourite diaper rash cream and it is also very effective at dealing with other common skin complaints. Our ingredients, which have remained unchanged since 1931, work together to protect the skin and promote healing. The mild local anaesthetic soothes pain and the antiseptic action helps prevent infection.



Chilblains are small swellings on the skin that are normally a reaction to cold temperatures. They often affect toes, fingers, heels, ears and noses. Whilst chilblains can often be uncomfortable, they can be prevented.

The best way to prevent chilblains is to limit exposing your extremities to the cold; this is of course not always possible, and if you or your family are suffering you can use Sudocrem Antiseptic Healing Cream to soothe the discomfort.


Pressure sores

Pressure ulcers, also known as bedsores or pressure sores, are caused by placing an area of skin under prolonged pressure. The pressure disrupts the blood flow and the affected skin becomes starved of oxygen and begins to break down.

To prevent pressure sores change a person’s position frequently or use special equipment (cushions, mattresses, etc.) to protect the body. If someone in your family is already suffering from pressure sores, Sudocrem Antiseptic Healing Cream can help to treat the condition. Sudocrem will help to alleviate the pain and creates a barrier to help protect the skin from infection. If the feeling of discomfort or the visible effects persist, consult your doctor as soon as possible.
