    Default Nappy rash

    WTF! My older Kids have never had nappy rash but dd2 has had it on/off last three days. Today it was awful, poor baby has a red bum and has been grumpy all day.

    How do I fix it/stop it?

    Could be from a few things. Maybe something you ate doesnt agree with bub (if you are breastfeeding)? Maybe bub is teething?
    We used to use curash powder as a preventative when changing the nappy, this helped a lot. If our did happen to get it, we used sudocream as a barrier on bubs skin & gave bub lots of air time without a nappy.

    Do you use a barrier cream? Only cream that worked for mine was Amolin, used with every nappy change, rarely saw any signs of a rash. I'd also always use corn starch powder after pooey nappies.
    How old is your bubs? Nappy rash can coincide with teething.

    Dd1 got a nappy rash when teething.
    The best creams I found were desitin or if particularly bumpy or angry daktozin (an anti fungal).
    Lots of nappy free time.
    If you are using wipes stop and just pay dry with a face cloth for wees, or a bit of water for Pooey ones, and keep the area dry and creamed up.

    Has bub had the oral vaccination recently? That made my DD irritable and horrendous nappy rash. I found using a 0.5% hydrocortisone cream twice a day for 2-3 days cleared it up, obviously in consultation with a knowledgable GP or pharmacist. And bepanthen nappy rash cream every nappy change, as it helps with healing.

    Daktozin works for us when if gets bumpy (like little pimples?), and a barrier cream (Sudocrem) to keep it from recurring.
    DS only gets it if I leave a cloth nappy on for too long, a combination of less absorbency than disposables and me not wanting to get sudocrem embedded in the fibres.

    Sudocrem is awesome as a barrier cream, and see a pharmacist, but I am pretty sure you can use Hydrozole, as I used it on one of my girls when she was a baby with severe nappyrash. It has cortizone in it.

    DS2 had it once and I took him to the GP because I was completely shocked by it as DS1 never had it and DS2 was 11 months old and it had never happened! We used hydrazole (GP directed) and it cleared up very quickly. Then we used sudocream as a barrier for a few days - again suggested by GP.

    Poor baby hope she is better soon.
