This is the only nappy rash cream I will buy. My mum recommended it after she used it on me as a baby with severe nappy rash- she said it was the only thing which cleared my bottom.
I currently have 2 tubes at home - it's that good! I have used it with all 3 of my daughters and cannot recommend it highly enough. It clears a slightly red bottom right up to a full on break out.
I also use Bepanthen on dry skin and as a lip balm. Works a treat!
I have found this cream to be the best "barrier" cream so far. It has a kind of greasy texture to it that actually creates a barrier between baby's skin and the contents of their nappy. I found that if you caught the rash a little too late and the skin became broken and painful, this cream seems to give the baby some comfort and stops their wee from stinging them. Once I discovered this cream no other seemed to stack up against it, not even the other popular one people seem to use. IYKWIM
DD1 also uses it for mosquito bite to stop the itch, it seems to work for her.
Bepanthen has been the only thing that ever worked on my babies nappy rash.
Admittenly that have never suffered from bad nappy rash however I put this down to my putting this cream on after every change so I whole heartedly believe this cream has prevented them from getting it.
The fact that it is also an antiseptic cream makes it so valuable to have in the baby bag if the little ones get a scratch, insect bit, chaffing, whatever - I just whisk the bepanthen out and apply. Perfect.
Hands down the best nappy cream I have ever used.
I am a fan of bepanthen.
It is nice and thick but still easy to spread and works well.
I quite like the smell, it is unoffensive - slightly medicial but not in a bad way.
I love the antiseptic part of this cream - i use it on minor cuts, stratches etc and it is also great on patches of dry skin. I actually use this cream more for that purpose vs nappy rash but it certainly does clear up a sore, red bum.
I have been through many tubes of this stuff and will buy again.
I love Bepanthen. My DS has had tonsillitis frequently which also gives his diarrhea which leads to nappy rash.
Because this is so thick, you don't need to use much to provide a thick barrier for babies skin and prevent any rash from developing. And if you already have a rash, it clears it up so quickly.
Great stuff - I also use it on bites, burns (seems to heal the blisters overnight) and chapped nipples.
