DS (1) has got impetigo all over his face, but mainly around his nose and slighlty up his nostrils.
He is so unhappy with it. He is only sleeping in 20 minute bursts throughout the night before screaming awake.
Last night he probably slept a total of 3 hours, the rest was screaming.
He can't suck his dummy properly and his nose is blocked.
Today he has had one nap in of 30 minutes & is now extremely overtired.

He will not stay asleep or take his dummy.
How can I help him? GP gave him some creams, but is it supposed to be this painful?

He's also having calpol and Nurofen. Help please! I have such am unhappy baby who just needs some sleep!
