Hiya
Not sure where to post this?
Dd is 5 months and has got bad nappy rash today for the first time ever, what is the best cream to use would you recommend?

Zinc and caster oil has been great for me

Metanium is the best you can buy IMO.

Yes to the yelkow metanium- amazing stuff

Another for Metanium. It stains though. You only need w really tiny amount & clears it up in no time

Another vote for metanium, but as Heffalump said you only need a tiny smear, don't be tempted to slather it on! Also as much nappy free time as you can (on a wipe-clean floor!)

Or Bepanthan

Metanium is magic
I can still recall the smell and colour of it 25 years on!

Metanium ointment the yellow one is great, I also found palmers cocoa bottom butter really good, my DD had open sores and it really helped.

Avoid anything greasy like sudocrem or zinc and castor oil if you use disposable nappies. The oil gets onto the nappy surface so it absorbs less, urine is kept in contact with skin and nappy rash gets worse.
Agree with Metanium as it is dry and doesn't transfer

Sudo cream. The holy grail of bum creams grin

Kummer. Good to know (for when I have grandchildren). We used terry towelling nappies when ours was a bub.

Another one saying yellow metanium - I think it's so great that I stock up on it when I'm back in U.K. And give to friends with new babies!

Baby oil to clean instead of wipes which can aggravate it. As pp have said, yellow metanium. It's magic stuff

Metanium plus some nappy free time.

Wow I had no idea metanium was so popular grin I actually have been using that but wanted to get the one which worked best (which it looks like I already have!) I'll carry on using it thensmile she's had lots of nappy free time today and yesterday and it's worked wonders, rash noticeably clearer already! Thankyou all!flowersflowers
