I am posting this on a few threads to see if anyone can help. Were on hols in Japan with our LO (4 months) and she has the worst nappy rash.　I have managed to leave the Bepanthen at home so we are using something an American friend has given us called Dispatin (?) or something similar but it is having no effect. Can anyone recommend a brand name of nappy cream which I could find in a chemist in Japan?? Also on a previous occasion I have used Canesten which has worked wonderfully - does anyone know if this is available over the counter in Japan? or something similar? Thanks so much for any advice - she looks so uncomfortable and I am feeling very "bad mummy" and a long way from home
if possible, leave her nappy off as much as you can. Are you using baby wipes to clean her? Ds2 had a really bad nappy rash recently and it really started to clear when we stopped using wipes and just went to warm water and corron wool.
Look for any cream with zinc in it...Do they have barnds like Penetan there? Or go to the chemist and ask what they recommend...
There is a brand of nappy called Nepia Doremi , my cousin lives in Tokyo and swears by them. They are infused with something, all natural, that treats nappy rash and kills any yeast that may be causing it.
wow! thank you so much ladies of mumsnet! yesterday I managed to explain what was wrong to a helpful pharmacist who gave me some cream but it`s not doing much yet so I will definitely　take up your suggestions if it doesn`t improve in the next day or so. I have some vaseline with me and will try out the Nepia Doremi nappies too - thanks AIWAW for that suggestion
