My dd (23 months) has got a red raw front bottom. she is very prone to nappy rash but it is a bit swollen as well which i have never seen before. does this mean that it might be something else and i should take her to the dr?
also, if it is just nappy rash can anyone recommend a cream that actually gets rid of it/soothes it or is fresh air best?
poor dd sems to be v uncomfortable even walking. sad

What kind of cream do you use to deal with nappy rash? We used Sudcrem as standard but once DS got it so badly that we had to use something more powerful (can't remember name of it - sorry) - his rash was terrible at that point, I took him to Dr and this cream was what she recommended. So definitely worth a trip to see Dr, I think. If nothing else, mine wrote a prescription for the new cream and I got it free!
