I use Sudocream but it doesn't appear to be getting any better. Any advice? He us 2 months. I don't know what I'm doing wrong. It looks extremely sore :-(

Yep, Metanium is the stuff.

A friend swears by epiderm but have never tried it.

When my son had terrible nappy rash I found that hs skin was so raw that any cream just slipped off as i applied it and made him scream with agony. The only thing that sorted it for me was a tip from a US baby care book - use corn flour gently dabbed on with cotton wool. Really soothed and dried it up, totally healed in a couple of days

I used a non-staining lotion called Cytelium which soothes and dries the rash. Very very effective. Don't know if it's available in the uk?
