Sudocrem® Antiseptic Healing Cream is licensed to treat a range of skin conditions including nappy rash, cuts & grazes, eczema, acne, minor burns, sunburn, bedsores & chilblains.
Infacol® is a baby colic treatment that helps to bring up wind or air trapped in a baby's tummy and can relieve griping pain.
Many of our medicines are a ‘generic’. Generic medicines contain the same active, or key, ingredient as the original medicine brand.
It’s a little bit like buying the premium brand baked beans at the supermarket versus buying the lower cost alternative brand of baked beans from the supermarket themselves. The key ingredient for both is still beans.
Generic medicines save the NHS billions of pounds a year.6 These savings mean that when difficult decisions about the allocation of funding need to be made within the NHS, generic medicines have done their part in allowing a proportion of the budget to be freed up.
