Sudocrem is an antiseptic used for treating all kinds of skin disorders like; Eczema, bruising, cut, scratches, skin dryness, and sore nose.
Just like Betadine, (an antiseptic I’ve written a lot about in my previous work) Sudocrem can also cause great discoloration on clothing fabrics. Sudocrem leaves oily/greasy stains on surfaces, so if you accidentally stain your fabric or upholstery with it, then you should be prepared to sacrifice your time because Sudocrem stains won’t come out easily.
Although, this article discusses in detail, the simplest and most effective ways to remove Sudocrem stains so you don’t have to worry about having to abandon your most cherished clothes.
What is Sudocrem made of
The primary use of Sudocrem is for the treatment of diaper rashes on babies, the use of Sudocrem on other skin conditions like those stated earlier is secondary.

Yes, Sudorem can stain any surfaces from your skin to your clothing, upholstery, skin, carpet, hair, and even your bathtub if applied directly on it or it happens by accident. Sudocrem stain is oily/greasy, so it wouldn’t come out easily. Therefore, it is important for anyone who has directly or indirectly stained any of the surfaces with it to treat almost immediately to prevent the stain from setting.
