dd hasn't really ever suffered since she's been born with nappy rash. I've always used sudocrem when I change her but the poor little thing has got a pretty sore bum and a couple of bigger sores that have developed. I've heard about some of the others that are on the market, but just wanted to see what the majority go with

My DD really, really suffered recently, open sores, weeping, cracked skin. It went from "bum a bit sore" to bloody awful in a matter of hours. It got so bad I ended up at walk in with her. Every time she was pooing or weeing it would just make it worse. Dr recommended:

No wipes at all (fairly obvious)
Extreme vigilance with nappy changes
As much nappy free time as is practical
Literally scoop the sudocreme out of the pot and slather on - it has to be a complete barrier or wee and poo will aggravate

Got quickly better doing all of the above

I found metanium to be no use at all but others swear by it.

Yellow metanium.

Yellow metanium without a doubt.

I'd recommend Metanium too. All 3 of my children have suffered from bad nappy rash..bleeding sores in a matter of hours sad. Metanium has always worked expect when it's been infected with thrush too.

Metanium as well for us. Hope it gets better soon.

For cracks I used Lansino nipple cream! It worked so well, not sure how. Then once cracks healed, metamium all the way.

Combined with two nappy free days at home when it was at its worst. A loosely pinned muslin gave me enough 'warning' for poo, but I just accepted there would be a mess. It was so bad I felt I had no choice.

Hey my daughter is 2 and a half and ever since she was born I used sudocrem and a pink cream from boots and her nappy rashes weren't bad until she got a uti and was rushed to hospital and the doctor gave me timaden cream and oh me is my saving grace her rash was so bad it was fire engine red but after I put that cream on it cleared and ever done then I have always used that nothing else. If I see she is getting sore I put a tiny bit on and by next change it us clear
