My DD keeps on getting the most shocking nappy rash. It literally burns and blisters her bottom. I am really at a loss as to what could be causing it. Her poo is different, sometimes grittier in texture (gross I know) and a lot softer, sometimes watery, but not always what I would consider to be diarrhoea. When she gets this rash (it's not pimply at all, just red raw and a little raised) she screams and kicks while I am cleaning her up. I feel terrible for her, but I need to get the poo off, otherwise it continues to burn her skin.
I have also noticed that she seems to get cold sores around the same time that the nappy rash/poo issue flare up.
I have tried a number of creams, cornstarch powder, nappy free time and I can't seem to get rid of it. We have an appointment with our gp tomorrow to see what may be causing it.
Has anybody else experienced anything like this with any of their children?
