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.
