Hydrozole treats nappy rash*

What is it?

Nappy rash* is a skin inflammation that affects areas covered for extended periods of time by a baby’s nappy. Most nappy rashes* are mild or moderate, and are not serious.

How do I treat it?

Gently clean the area thoroughly with water and ensure the skin is completely dried. If recommended by your doctor, applying Hydrozole cream before putting on a nappy will relieve the inflammation and fight the infection itself. Do not apply too much as this may reduce the breathability of the nappy. Change nappies often, ideally as soon as they’re wet or soiled, to prevent skin being in contact with urine or faeces for long periods. Hydrozole should not be used on children under the age of two unless recommended by a doctor.

How do I stop it coming back?

Make sure nappies are changed often. Wash your baby's bottom with water only, as soaps may irritate the skin. After washing, make sure the area is properly dry before putting on a new nappy. Dry by patting, rather than by rubbing, with a towel. Do not use talcum powder, which may irritate the skin. Don't use tight-fitting plastic pants over nappies, as they keep in moisture which increases the risk of nappy rash. Wherever possible, leave your baby's nappy off to allow fresh air to dry the skin.



1. eases the inflammation

Hydrocortisone acts to relieve the inflammation caused by a fungal infection, to reduce the redness, ease the irritation and stop that maddening itch.

2. tackles the infection

Clotrimazole is the antifungal ingredient that fights the infection itself, by stopping it spreading and getting rid of the fungi.

it all mean?

Is tinea the same as athlete’s foot? Is jock itch a form of ringworm, or is that something else? Our Glossary clears up the confusion...
