Nappy rash can make your whole home miserable. From a sad little one with a sore behind to a mum desperate for a miracle cure, it can be such a trying time.

Here at Mum Central, we’re always on the lookout for new products. Even better if they can solve real problems for everyday mums.

That’s why we’re pleased to be working with Covitol and giving our readers a chance to try it as Mum Central Product Testers to see if it can help them to prevent nappy rash!

Is this clever tube of barrier goodness a must-have for every mum’s bag of secret tricks? We think so! Read on for why and how you could trial it for us.


Every Mum Dreads Nappy Rash

Woe is the baby with the red bum! Their delicate skin is pure agony and every wee adds to the dreaded burn. They’ll let you know just how much they’re suffering with endless tears and desperate, pain-filled sobs. Quite frankly, we don’t blame them. It’s a rough time for both mum and bubs alike.


What Causes Nappy Rash?

According to the Royal Children’s Hospital; ‘the most common cause of nappy rash (sometimes called diaper dermatitis) is irritation. Constant moisture and rubbing can cause damage to the skin. This is further irritated by bacteria, yeasts (e.g. candida or thrush), detergents, urine and faeces. Nappy rash is worsened by diarrhoea, some acidic foods, not changing the nappy often enough and plastic pants.

Help! Tips to Prevent Nappy Rash!

  • Use good quality disposable nappies
  • Nappies should be changed often (about 5 to 7 times a day in babies under 12 months of age), reducing the amount of time that urine and faeces are in contact with the skin.
  • At each nappy change your baby’s bottom should be gently cleaned with cotton wool or Chux-type cloths, dampened with lukewarm water.
  • A barrier cream should be thickly applied at each nappy change.
  • Try to let your child have as much nappy free time as possible.
  • Talcum powder should not be used on nappy rash.

Got Nappy Rash? You need a cure. Fast!

As a parent, it’s a relief to have a safe, go-to product on hand all the time. When nappy rash rears its ugly head, you need a barrier that stays on the skin, sealing the moisture and germs and allowing the skin to recover.

Covitol helps to relieve nappy rash, it sticks because it’s thick! While other creams rub away under a nappy.

Covitol Combines Protection with Healing

It’s important to know that when dreaded nappy rash strikes you’re aiding its repair with a barrier cream that includes healing ingredients. When baby’s bottom is proverbially, ‘smooth as’ and rash-free, Covitol is still a great choice as a way of soothing delicate skin and preventing any flare-ups.

Formulated to both heal and soothe, Covitol contains high levels of Cod Liver Oil, Zinc Oxide, Paraffin & Lanolin. These ingredients combine and create the ultimate thick, smooth barrier for long-lasting protection and to help irritations quickly disappear.

    Love to be able to try new bum cream to see if it is better than what i am currently using

  2. I am unable to load photos. Our 2 year old recently had a severe reaction to another well known Nappy Cream. Mild Nappy Rash suddenly became “angry red” and showed signs of blistering bust after the cream was put on. We had to get a prescription and use Steroid Cream to use instead.

  3. I use different creams as I am yet to find one that really works for my little man. Always open to try something new.

  4. I remember it from when I was a kid (and younger siblings)! I’d love to see if it’s as good as Mum said it was still 🙂

  7. It’s an ongoing problem with my youngest and nothing seems to help it.

  8. I love to test new products out on my baby, nappy rash can be a nightmare at times.My current cream works ok but is a little thick and tacky.

  9. I would love to try as I am yet to find something thats works on my 9 month old and my 2 year old. I am spending heaps of money

  10. I would love to trial Covitol Cream on my babies bottoms when they develop nappy rash as I am yet to find a cream that works wonders. I am a Mum to 3 beautiful boys – 5 years, 2 years and a 2 month old. The two youngest are in nappies.
