DD was diagnosed with it on her bum 3 weeks ago while on holidays. Doctor prescribed Baneocin (ABs cream). Thing is it still hasn't gone away. Few spots turned into boils (which heal well), she has just got another one yesterday.

I guess I'll have to make an appt. to see a doctor, but I was wondering if there are any tested home remedies? Otoh afaik it's a staph infection so perhaps only a round of ABs will do. DP had a blister that burst and that got a huge swelling which his doctor said was an infection- perhaps from when he changed DD?

Anyway, I'm still putting the cream on, letting her run around with no nappy on...what else can I do before I go to the doctor?
