My 10 month old DS suffers from nappy rash and I'm having trouble finding something that works to prevent and treat it. What works for your little ones?

Nappy rash solutions

A slightly red bum, I'll use bepanthen.
A really red sore bum, I'll use daktozin.
Every nappy change, I use baby powder.
I find he only gets nappy rash when powder isn't used at every nappy change and straight after a bath.

We used sudocreme when DD was a newbie coz we got lotsa trial packs from OB and hospital.. But I've had my GP and quite a few pharmacists recommend Bepanthen, they say it's more "healing". I can't really tell if it works better tho...
Edited to say: yup, I second the baby powder too. I find it absorbs a lot of the extra moisture

As soon as DS bum got red I would use bepanthen and it cleared it up pretty much in a day or so.

My DD's dermatologist recommended a 3 part solution.
A combination of dermaid and clonea when really red and sore looking. Use the dermaid (a cortisone) until the redness has calmed down but keep using the clonea (an antifungal) until the rash has cleared completely.
Then desitin (a zinc cream) to prevent reoccurrence. We would use this every night for our DD who was prone to nappy rash.

I had to resort to Hydozole when DD had nappy rash that had open weeping sores. It worked a treat. The Dr recommended it but you can buy it over the counter. If you google it you will see what it is recommended for.

Organic nappy rash cream
I use this one most of the time: http://summerchild.com.au/products/o...by-nappy-cream
Seemed to keep my little one's behind free of nappy rash. Smells lovely. Fingers crossed I haven't had a bad case of nappy rash.

I normally just use Sudocreme at each change, but if it's looking red I'll use either Bepanthen ointment or paw paw ointment.
I found for DD that baby powder only made her rash worse so I don't use it at all.

Im also a bepabthen and daktozin fan.
Could bath wash be irritating his bum? I had to stop using Johnsons because it made my eczema on my hands flare up badly.
Also, someone suggested baking powder (I think) in the bath instead if bubbles, just until it clears up.
