A popular nappy rash cream used by parents across Australia has been recalled, with warnings the affected batch could have the adverse effect.
Two batches of the Curash Nappy Rash Cream, sold in both Chemist Warehouse and Woolworths stores, have been recalled over fears they cause rashes, instead of treat them.
The Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) issued the recall on Monday, after reports the product could increase skin sensitivity, redness and/or rash following application of the product.
The batch numbers affected are 1118263 1116727, with the batch number embossed on the top of the tube.
If you have a product with the affected batch number, stop using it immediately and return it to the place of purchase for a full refund.
