    Default Her Bad Nappy Rash Will Not Stay Away, Help ! ! !

    DD keeps getting a really bad nappy rash. We use mainly Huggies nappies on her. Her bottom keeps getting red raw, and it gets that bad that it bleeds.

    We have tried all the creams, powder, everything that we can think of to get rid of it and to keep it away but nothing is working.

    The poor thing is in so much pain when it is like it, please anyone with idea's on what could be causing this or how to get it away and keep it away please share. I'm ready to take her to the Dr for but feel like they will just say, "It's just nappy rash", and then I will feel like I have wasted everyone's time.

    So please someone HELP me relieve her pain ! ! !

    Thanks in advance.

    It might be something she is eating.

    DD used to get horrible rash after eating certain fruits. Pear was the worst. Also, when teething she get a horrble rash. Like a burn. OUCH The best thing to help clear up DD's bott is Aloe vera gel It stings her when it first goes on, but after a minute it stops. Then seem to heal it up nicely.

    have you taken her to the Dr about it?

    it might not be nappy rash it could be thrush or another fungal infection.

    are you giving her lots of nappy free time?

    sposies dont 'breath' like cloth nappies do. because of the plastic on them.
    i might be worth giving them a try if it doesn't clear up.

    poor little thing

    Try Hydrozole which can be bought OTC in any chemist. It has anti-fungal and cortisone ingredients.

    I would take her to the dr immediately. If it's a rash that's not clearing, is raw and bleeding it may not be just a nappy rash.
    If it's a bacterial rash she will need a prescribed cream to get rid of it.

    In the mean time, keep her nappy off as much as possible. If she's not crawling, just put a terry flat (or a towel) underneath her. Fresh air is magical for bums!

    We use cloth nappies and have pretty much never had rashes (apart from a couple of times when she's pooed overnight and hasn't woken).

    Have a look at the cloth threads if you're interested. There's lots of information. And ppl who thought they would never use cloth have made the jump

    If you're not, try changing to a different disposable. It's could be something in the nappy that's causing her to have the reaction.

    If she's on solids, try cutting out certain foods that may be causing it.

    Aww the poor little possum I definitely agree with Gremily.Nappy off time and see a doctor.

    How long has the rash lasted?Ellie used to have horrid nappy rash at times (in huggies) the only thing that would clear it up is nappy free time (preferably in some sun too) and when she did have to have a nappy on I used pawpaw cream.

    I do use cloth now though with no rashes so far

    Does she drink Fruit Juice??

    Or have you changed what you normally wash her with?? Frangraces can often cause it.

    Poor little bugger... i hope it clears up for her soon.

    I agree, it could be thrush or a fungal infection. I used Daktozin on my DS.

    But definately take her to the doctor first and get it checked it. If its getting red raw, it would probably be burning when she does a wee too so go and get it checked ASAP.

    I'm going to see if I can get her into the Dr's tomorrow, well, today, Tuesday ! ! !

    There has to be something going on for it to keep coming back and for it to be this bad. We never had this problem with the boys, I mean yes they got nappy rash here and there but nothing like this. It's driving me insane so I can only imagine what it is doing to her.

    So hopefully tomorrow we will be closer to finding out what is going on.
