    Bi-carb soda in the bath water really helps too, & don't use any soaps etc. Once out of the bath some nappy free time.

    I got told by a experienced CHN/LC/MW to use both sudo cream followed by paw paw ointment. I also gave lots of naked time, used cotton wool balls instead of baby wipes & used the better more absorbent nappies when DS had bad nappy rash. Good luck

    ouch! poor little thing.

    sudocreme or curash were our favourites. and as said bare bum time and no soaps in the bath are also great ideas and worked well for us.

    Ok so heres my two cents worth:
    When DD1 was only a week old she developed a BAD rash, i tried using pawpaw and it did nothing, infact the rash got worse and her skin was so red rawit was bleeding in patches. Curash just would NOT STICK to her skin, it just slipped straight off the areas she needed it! So i eventually found Desitin to be great, or Bepanthen (the ordinary ointment only, NOT the antiseptic one). So Desitin or Bepanthen. Havent tried the cornflour so cant comment regarding that. But if its looks kinda spotty it could need an antifungal like Daktozin. I took DD to the doctor and he prescribed a strong cortizone to mix with an antifungal cream to apply first, and then the Desitin over the top of that. (yes the rash was really bad!) Daktozin is antifungal but it doesnt have the cortizone element, just the anyifungal and zinc cream combined. all depends how bad the rash is as to what you'll need. Hope this makes sense!!!
