Recall: Diaper rash cream withdrawn from Woolworths and Chemist Warehouse due to adverse reactions.
A popular diaper rash cream used by parents across Australia has been recalled with warnings that a batch afflicted with a rash could have adverse effects.
Two batches of Curash diaper rash cream sold at Chemist Warehouse and Woolworths were recalled over concerns that they were causing rashes rather than treating them.
