A popular nappy cream has been recalled due to some reports of skin irritation after applying the product.

Curash says it’s recently become away of a ‘potential adverse reaction regarding short term skin irritation’ linked to the use of two batches of Curash Nappy Rash Cream.

Some users have reported increased skin sensitivity, redness or a rash after applying the cream. The symptoms subsided after the affected skin was washed with water.

Curash says that compare to the number of units sold, the instance of these reaction is ‘very low’.

The company is recalling two batches of Curash Nappy Rash Cream, with the following batch numbers:
