How much Sudocrem® should I put on?

Less is more and with Sudocrem® a little goes a long way! Only apply a small amount in a thin layer and massage in small circular movements until the Sudocrem has disappeared leaving a translucent film. If the area looks white afterwards, put a little less on next time.

I have heard nappy creams may clog nappies, making them less effective – does this happen with Sudocrem®?

If Sudocrem® is applied correctly (a small amount, applied thinly), there is no evidence to suggest that it will affect a nappy’s ability to absorb urine.
