    Default bad nappy rash

    Just wondering if anyone has some solutions for me. Poor little DD has a very red bot. In parts, not all over it is pink/red and welty. It also looks like its a bit peely if that makes sense, like the skin is coming away a bit. Oh it makes me so upset that I can't stop it.

    I have tried sudocream, pawpaw, natural bottom balm but am now on moogoo. The boys never had it this bad. I am constantly checking if she has poo'd as I don't want to leave her with one for a second - that's what started it. We are using cloth nappies and I can't really smell poop as easily in them so sometimes have left her without realising she had a small one in there.

    She has always been sensitive and can only wear a huggie nappy as the cheaper ones cause her to come out in welts. I can't use any wipes other than eco ones either so wonder if it could maybe be the nappy liners??? But these are bio-degradable natural ones too...

    I found when all nappy rash creams didn''t work for my dd (it ended up really bad) I went to the chemist and got some Daktozin Cream.. It's for nappy rash, but you have to ask for it, you won't find it on the shelves. I put it on pretty thick and constantly for a 2 or so days and it really helped.

    I always used corn flour. Found that improved nappy rash in a very quick time. Just the cheap stuff you use for cooking. Even now if my little one who is 5 was a little bit red on bottom or in the groin area, i just put a sprinkle of corn flour and its gone quick smart.

    I second the cornflour. It was the only thing that worked when dd got a really bad rash. I put sudocream on and then covered that in cornflour. The cornflour will hold the cream against the skin.

    Hope you find something that helps

    I got my son some small undies. Just plain undies. During the day I kept him out of nappies when it got bad and he would lay on the plastic wet protectors covered in a blanket. I would use some baby powder just like the corn flour it soaks moisture and after each wet just throw on a new set of undies after a warm wet flannel. For poos you can smell them fast and wipe off with toilet paper and I had a bath hose to give a quick wash and make sure their really dry.

    thanks for the great ideas - looks like cornflour is a winner! Will get some tomorrow when I can pop to the shops without the tribe. I was thinking maybe some nappy free time so will do that too.

    I just had to come back and say it's working!! Thanks again so so much! The parts that were raw skin are healing over and reduced by half I just can't believe it - something so simple in just one day. I will use it now at the first sign of a rash so it doesn't get bad again. She obviously has a very sensitive botty.
