Using Sudocream

Posted , 7 users are following.

Hello all

after a recent appt with my gynecologist she advised against using sudocream(nappy/antiseptic) for those little chuffed areas at times. What are your thoughts? Does anyone use this or something similar? Obviously inbetween i do use my steroid and mosturisers oils as well.

    As it's an antiseptic maybe it has ingredients that are too harsh. I have tried to find Hydromol in the US but pharmacist said she never heard of it and can't be ordered. I don't find using coconut oil as a cleanser that effective.

    sudocreme is just so hard to remove. i have umpteen lotions and potions to change around as my skin changes what it tolerates every few days ! For me though CETREBEN is my favourite . it works beautifully for me and i can use this for periods. it is so easy to put on, it glides on easily where i find that other cremes or ointments don't.

    i completely recommend the cream CETREBEN .

    good luck x

    Some are called antiseptic but cetraben isn't, that might be the difference. My gyn gave me a handout that said no soap, but did not mention any alternatives. Before I was diagnosed I was using cetaphil which is non-alkaline & fragrance free for sensitive skin. Nine months soap free, but I would love to find something to use at least occasionally.

      Pamela, if you meant Cetraben it is unfortunately not available in the US unless it's shipped from elsewhere. Quite a few of these lotions & creams are not available including hydromol. My doctor didn't suggest using anything...just water for cleansing. I really wish there was something other than coconut oil.
