Baby Nappy Rash Ointment for Sensitive Skin

What is Dexaderm™?

DEXADERM™ BABY NAPPY RASH OINTMENT FOR SENSITIVE SKIN contains dexpanthenol (D-panthenol), the precursor of vitamin B5. Dexpanthenol has moisturising properties and when used in skin preparations it acts as a humectant (a substance that absorbs or helps retain moisture), an emollient (a substance that softens or soothes the skin) and a moisturiser (a substance that makes the external layers of the skin softer and more pliable).

DEXADERM™ BABY NAPPY RASH OINTMENT FOR SENSITIVE SKIN can be used for the management and prevention of nappy rash in both babies and adults. Nappy rash is the term applied to skin rashes in the nappy area. The rash can be red and painful.

Nappy rash can be caused by:
the skin being exposed to prolonged wetness.
changes to the skin's acidity by urine or faeces.
In infants, the protective, waterproof layer of the skin is much thinner than in adults, making this condition quite common in infants

How to use DexaDerm™

For nappy rash:
Apply DexaDerm™ directly to the affected area. 
Always carefully clean and dry the affected area thoroughly before applying DexaDerm™. Apply at each nappy change.
