    Default Nappy rash

    Hi, can anyone recommend me a good nappy rash cream for my ds?? Sudocream doesn't seem to be working and he is in so much pain.

    Calmoseptine from the chemist - it's just on the shelf, not on a script - it's thick, sticky zinc barrier cream and it works really well. I use the big cotton buds and put the cream on the cotton bud then on bubs skin. If I put it on my skin it takes a lot of work to get it off me!

    I posted this exact thing a few months ago and about 5-6 people recommended I try corn flour - it worked! My DD had it really bad and no creams were working either. Since the flour cleared her up she has only had a little bit twice but I get onto it straight away with the flour and it doesn't come to anything. The first time when it was bad it took only a day to start coming good.

    Day to day we use Bepanthen ointment or Amolin or Palmers Bottom Butter at most nappy changes and they are all great. I hate Sudocream, it stinks and it's too zincy.

    When dd had severe nappy rash (dh frogot to use cream befor eputting her to bed and then she pooed and was in it for a couple of hours in her sleep) we had to get Daktozin from the pharmacy. It's behind the counter and works like a charm.

    Obviously not something you would want to use longterm but it really helped clear up dd within a day. She was in pain and crying when she peed.

    DS had a bad rash once it was raw skin pretty much! So we stopped using wipes and use water to clean his bottom, then we made sure his bottom is always dry before putting on nappy rash cream, and we caked it on during night. Changed his nappies often and try to give as much nappy free time as possible. If not possible keep it thin just a nappy no othe layers so the bottom can breath. We used curash. We did buy zinc and other creams but we find curash works best for us.It cleared up in a week, but saw improvement within the day

    With my last little guy creams didn't seem to work AT ALL no matter what cream it was... so I washed him with warm water in the laundry tub every time he had a poo, so I didn't use wipes on him at all... seriously I think wipes are bad news. And I used the Curash corn powder with zinc in it. Cleared up very quickly. And frequent changes, and lots of air time.

    ETA: Oh and I forgot.. SAVLON cream... when it was really raw I used SAVLON cream and at night, made such a HUGE difference, and then the curash powder every change.

    Agree with ditching the wipes. They were bad news for my dds bum.

    I only use Lucas paw paw ointment. If it is really bad you might want to get the dr to check it is not infected.

    This is the first time ds has ever had nappy rash and he is 16 months old. When I picked him up from daycare the other day I could smell that he had poo'd but just decided to change him when I got home ( 2 min down the road) his bum was as red raw and the poo looked like it had been there for ages thanks for all your suggestions, def agree about the wipes.
