Ds has been coming home every week with nappy rash. He is only at daycare 2 days a week. He is changed minimum of 3 times. Yesterday was by far the worst. He can hardly sit down because of the blisters and raw skin. They put curash on as i do before sending him to daycare. What can i do to stop this? Both the rash being this bad and that its only when he goes to daycare

Daycare and nappy rash

Do they use different nappies or wipes at daycare? I would send in your own nappies AND wipes that you usually use at home, maybe he is reacting to something in the products they use? I would also recommend Calmoseptine as a barrier, it is amazing. Best nappy cream i have ever used.

They use my nappies and their huggies wipes. I havent changed nappies for along time. We rotate between 2 as one brand is better at night. Is that Calmoseptine available over tje counter at a pharmacy?

I sometimes find the same thing with DS. It's normally when they're playing outside at the end of the day and he does a poo. Sometimes he doesn't tell them and they don't realise as he's off playing away from them.
I find the timing of changes is more important than the number iykwim. I would just be discussing it with your day care and asking them to keep a closer eye on it.
How regular is your DS. Can you give them an idea about when they should be extra vigilant?

If its blistery and raw u need something better than curash. Get daktozin from chemist. Its behind the counter and works wonders.

I second that you need daktozin nappy cream from the chemist & corn flour baby powder. Put on the cream and sprinkle with powder to 'set it' each nappy change

Will grab some in the morning. He has had lots of no nappy time today to hopefully help. It certainly isnt looking as red and angry until he has a poopy nappy. where would i get corn flour baby powder? @RmumR

Maybe also look at what he is eating at daycare, I found my DS got really bad nappy rash after citrus foods, once I took the citrus out he didn't have any problems with nappy rash.

If it's blistery it needs hydrozole cream. Also make them use Vaseline on changes its cheap and also affective

My ds2 has the same problem with daycare and I find it is because they don't wipe properly or they don't change him often enough. But we are in cloth. He gets burn like welts from disposable. If you have a good supply of wash cloths you can try washing at change time with just warm water. Rules out the wipes.
