Metanium Ointment is specifically formulated to soothe and effectively treat nappy rash. It is a protective ointment that can be used at every nappy change, especially at bedtime as your baby will not be changed for a longer period of time. Metanium Ointment easily rubs into the skin and creates a barrier between the baby’s delicate skin and the irritants in urine and faeces, therefore treating and helping to prevent nappy rash.
Even the most absorbent nappy can still leave some moisture on a baby's delicate new skin. Nappy rash can also be developed from being left in a dirty nappy for too long. Nappy rash can appear on the bottoms of babies, particularly babies with very sensitive skin, even if the nappy is changed frequently. The most common cause of nappy rash is from micro-organisms in baby’s faeces coming into contact with urine, together producing ammonia. This causes a change in the pH levels of the skin and results in irritation and leading to nappy rash.
A baby’s skin is nearly half as thin as that of adults and is therefore more delicate and more prone to damage. This is why it is essential to take extra care of baby’s skin.
