Nappy Skin Treatments


Recommended Posts

  • Root Admin

Noticed a couple of posts that nappy, [aka, diaper] (Australian English and British English), skin treatments are helpful in some cases. For example a post from Smacky at RF who reports, "I've been using Bepanthen for about a week now....So I tried Bepanthen, and within a few hours noticed the skin on my nose and cheeks had settled down a bit and looked better. I've been applying it every morning and night before bed, and every day this week I've woken up find my nose a little less red than the day before. I also haven't had a single new spot or lump. I woke up today and looked in the mirror and my nose is the same skin tone as my face. It's almost surreal. Its like looking at a different person who I'd forgotten about. I feel wonderful  Anyway I really hope this will help someone else."


Ingredients in Bepanthen:
Aqua, Lanolin, Paraffinum liquidum, Petrolatum, Panthenol, Prunus amygdalus dulcis oil, Cera alba, Cetyl alcohol, Stearyl alcohol, Ozokerite, Glyceryl oleate, Lanolin alcohol.
