Firstly I would like to say a massive Thank you to my Dad who introduced me to this cream last week as he was using it on his new tattoo.
My 5 month old little boy had been suffering with the runs and as a restult his bottom has become very very sore and was starting to blead in places. I was using Sudacrem to try and treat it but after my 3 year old got his hands on it and it in now all over the carpet I had to use Savlon which was in my supboard. When I arrived at my parents house the following day my Dad saw the state of my little mans bottom and suggested trying out his new cream. I decided to give it a go as it could not do it any worse than it was.
I found that the cream was very greasy when applying but it seemed to instantly soothe his bottom when applying and all the tears just seemed to stop.
Later when I did his next nappy change the difference in his bottom was already noticable, the redness had started to fade and the bleading was no longer there. Again I applied the cream at every nappy change and within 3 days of using on every nappy change the sore bottom was beautiful again.
The cream comes in a 30g tube which is white and blue in colour. The packaging claims that if used on every nappy change it forms a long lasting breathable barrier and protects delicate skin against the irritants that cause nappy rash. I can honestly agree with these claims.
The cream must also be stored in a cool dry place below 25 degres celcius.
another great use for this cream which I have also tested and found is for new tattoos. If applied several times a day to a new tattoo it help the healing and also stops it from scabbing.
Bepanthen is not widely available and the only stockists I have found for thid so far is Lloyds chemist, hope fully when it becomes more widely known and popular more stores will start to stock it. I purchased my tube for £2.98 which is a great price for such an amazing cream.
Bepanthen is made by Bayer Plc and the cream is also available in 100g size.
I would strongly recommend this cream to any mother or father who has a child suffering from nappy rash or also to any tattoo fans who is thinking of having one done.
I forgot to say that I paid £2.98 for my tube which I fell is well worth the price, there are cheaper creams available but no are as good as this.
Great review, I always have some of this in for when my son gets sore botties. You can get quite large tubes from the larger Boots. Catherine x

Not sure it is a good idea on new tattoos... I was told to use Johnsons Baby Oil on my first tattoo and it has faded a little - another tattoist told me that the oil probably took someof the pigment out! It's all confusing!!! Great review though!

Got a small tube as a freebie and loved it. Always buy a few when I can find them. Good review.
