My 2 1/2 year old son has just finished 5 days worth of antibiotics for a suspected urine infection. His bottom has been red raw with what I assumed was nappy rash, now a puss filled spot has appeared on his nappy area.
Anyone else experienced this? I have been cleaning with cotton wool and water instead of wipes and using sudocream.
Thanks in advance!!

If the spots have little whiteheads on them it could be a fungal infection. Ask the pharmacist. You can buy anti fungal cream over the counter its about £3.50. Think it's called clomitrazole or something similar
My ds had it a couple of months ago.

Thanks pudseypie, just been into see the pharmacist at boots and that's exactly what she said. She recommended the clomitrazole cream and I put some on before he went to bed. Hopefully it will do the trick. It's so sore for him when I change his nappy, bless him.

Thanks again x
