    Default Help! Best / industrial strength nappy cream?

    My poor 17 month old bub has a really red raw bottom. He's had a little bit of diarrhea, and may be teething. His poor bottom looks really sore, and he's been crying when i wipe, and when i touch it 😕 even in the bath tonight. What's the absolute best nappy cream out there that might help heal it, and provide a barrier? We have Sudocrem - is there anything better?

    We used daktarin (?) which is an anti fungal cream with sudocrem over the top whenever my kids had a really sore bottom. Always cleared it up within a couple of days. Also try and give as much nappy free time as possible.

    I second daktozin.

    We used daktozin, sudocrem and cornflour over the top and it finally went away. My little one has a really sensitive bottom.

    Also I've just been put on to jojoba oil from a friend. I thought it wouldn't work and it has. Just rub it on and it has seemed to work.

    I will say though we had reoccurring nappy rash for about three or four weeks and I used daktozin and sudocrem for two weeks straight. It cost a fortune, but anything for a clear bottom. Now jojoba oil and a little sudocrem..... Do not want it coming back!

    Desitin worked a treat for my DS when his bottom was sore however if it doesn't heal a GP can prescribe something in case it's fungal or infected.

    That's the one, I was close! It's been a while since my 2 have had nappy rash!

    I know you asked about creams but I had some success with chamomile tea when my kids were babies.

    Throw a couple of tea bags in the bath. Dip a cloth in cold tea to wipe their bottom at a nappy change. Soak strips of cloth (eg muslin) in the tea, and put damp in their nappy.

    Thank you all. With a bit of diarrhea, I'm not keen on nappy free time, but will check out those creams, and think about the chamomile tea, thanks ☺

    Calmoseptine (?sp) it's a zinc cream like sudocream but thicker and kinda pink. Comes in a white and green tube
