Sudocrem

sudocrem

The Blurb (based on human use):

Sudocrem Antiseptic Healing Cream can be used to treat a number of skin conditions including:

  • Cuts
  • Grazes
  • Minor burns
  • Bed sores
  • Chilblains
  • Acne
  • Eczema
  • Sunburn

Sudocrem Antiseptic Healing Cream is gentle, so it won’t sting on application. It can reduce the risk of infection and contains a mild local anaesthetic to soothe pain. It also helps a wound to heal and forms a protective barrier over the vulnerable area. In other words, it’s a very useful tub to keep around the house!

 

Review for Sudocrem

We have all seen Sudocrem about the place but it is truly brilliant for a myriad of ailments for both the horse and the rider.  I use mine the most on a very itchy 11.2h pony.  He manages to ruin his tail every year when the flies come out and its soothing powers definitely ease the itch.  Sudocrem has also been brilliant for me when a new horse arrived with mud fever.  We used it liberally as a barrier cream before exercise and turnout.    Be warned though – it is tricky to wash off so we used an old brush to apply it.  I have also used it on a grey for sun protection on his nose – it stayed on so much better than sun tan lotion and the zinc oxide blocked the rays.  You will be surprised how often you use it.

Available at all good chemists and supermarkets. Please note that we have spoken to Sudacrem and they do inform us that they do not have a veterinary license  for this product.
