They use orabase in scbu and paediatrics when metatanium fails. It is good for raw weeping places, they use it for mouth ulcers, bed sores etc...

metanium is bloody brilliant (ace for spots too!)

Metanium is brilliant. Sudocrem did bugger all for DS's nappy rash. Started using metanium and it cleared up in a few days. And yes, it is yellow and will leave marks on undies

Metanium. You might want to dedicate several knickers whilst using this stuff as the cream leaves a yellow colour.

I have psoriasis which I keep under control with a tar-based product and use of Aqueous cream instead of soap. It causes great soreness between my legs (the perineum?). I make certain that I am properly dry after urinating. Sudocrem helps but wondering if anyone can recommend any other over-the-counter barrier creams.
