Nappy rash cream – Oxyplastine

This is my first post. I wanted to write about something that is ‘life changing’. I thought hard and here it is. If your baby suffers from nappy rash and if, like me, you think you tried everything (creams  such as Sudocrem, Bepanthen, Weleda, Mustela, Pasta di Fissan etc and unhelpful hours without the nappy), you will just love Oxyplastine.

Zinc Oxide based (and without the various benzyls that you can find in other creams commercialised in the UK), this very thick, white, odourless paste will cover and protect the bottom of your baby and make disappear any stubborn nappy rush after only a few applications. You can see some improvements after a few hours. Thanks to the lack of nasty chemicals it can be used on very young babies. When needed just apply a thin layer over the red areas after your nappy change routine.  Do not rub it in. I ended up using it almost every day as a preventative measure but you can decide to use it more rarely.

It costs about GBP 8 but a tube lasts for about 6 months, even if you decide to use it regularly. The only negative I have found is that it is quite difficult to remove (water and cotton pads will do the job) and might leave white stains on mum’s clothes (those will be easily washed away). The catch is that it is very difficult to find in the UK. You will find it in almost every pharmacy or drug store in Switzerland and in most French pharmacies. Some French or Swiss websites might deliver it to the UK.

    Just to add my thumbs-up to this two year old story. We live in Switzerland and used Oxyplastin due to a severe nappy rash. On a trip back to the UK i thought it possible to buy a cheaper alternative there and brought back the best (according to the experienced pharmacist at Boot’s) but none worked as well as did Oxyplastine. Definitely recommended if you cannot get rid of that nasty rash.
