    Default Nappy rash...

    DS has a very nasty nappy rash/fungal rash. We went to the gp yesterday and are using hydrozole as well as no nappies at night and bare bum time when at home.

    Just wondering what others do with a nasty nappy rash? How long does it take to clear up?

    TIA!

    Try a tablespoon of bicarb soda in the bath. The other thing we found that made a difference was evening primrose oil, we just got the capsules and pierced them, then squirted the liquid in his skin.

    Daktozin cream is the best thing as it's relieving and anti-fungal 👍

    I always used cornflour instead of creams. Always worked and always cleared up very quickly once i discovered it(was very rare to get nappy rash once i started using it)

    Coconut oil, it's an anti fungal and many other 'anti' things.

    Yup - three kids and it's always worked a treat. It's an anti-fungal in a zinc based cream. Love the stuff.

    As to how long it took to clear, I smear it on at every change, have some bare bum time and within 24 hours, all better.

    I use desitin cream which you can buy from the chemist. The zinc % is higher than any others I've seen, it literally clears even the worst nappy rash in 24 hours if used at every change. I usually smear that all over him and then I sprinkle some cornflour on top. Works like a charm

    We did the bicarb bath and frequent changing of cloth nappies during the day.

    But you say "no nappies at night".
    I'm curious to know how that went. I've only tried that about three times. First time was a disaster and bub peed all over the place, 2nd time, much older, when he was pulling his velcro nappy off he went without and was actually dry the next morning, 3rd time, next night, pee all over the bed.
