    Default Sensitive to sanitary pads

    I'm due soon so I've started wearing pads again ( to ensure if I get a show it's captured) and I've forgotten that I'm sensitive to some brands. This had resulted in what I can only describe as "nappy rash" on my lips.
    What can I use now ( and obviously later) to relieve? Would sudo cream work

    The only thing that works for me is not wearing pads although I wore natural pads from like a crystal shop and also depends and never got a rash once so maybe switch to wearing them. I also go back to basics and make sure I'm dry and lots of airing out. I don't know about sudocream, my reaction is due to moisture because of the plastic coating so it's something I would avoid and concentrate on finding the right pad. Sorry I couldn't be more help

    I had chub rub for a few weeks of my pregnancy from wearing pads for leakage. Sudo crem took a while to start working but when it did it was amazing!

    I'm pad sensitive too.. I try to air it out when I can and use them as little as possible.

    I've bought a cpl packets of TOM organic maternity pads for after birth, I was hoping they wouldn't irritate.

    I've used Tena liners recently for the same thing and no irritation at all. I've been impressed.

    What about cloth pads. I haven't tried themself but there are a lot of women that swear by them.

    There section here on hub about them under health and beauty and weight loss I think.

    Love love love cloth pads.

    I know it sounds strange but the are way more comfortable and seem to shorten AF.

    All you have to do is rinse (optional) and chuck in the washing machine.

    I am sensitive to everything but Cottons (store brand). They aren't fragranced or anything and I think that's what causes a reaction with me. I haven't tried cloth pads but am very interested and will try one day.
