Can anyone help me sort out my DD's nappy rash? She 's in so much pain and is constantly scratching her fangita. Its very raw and extremely red. Have given up with sudocrem and have been using cream that I was recommended at pharmacy by it hasn't helped. DD is 14 m and has all 4 molars coming through, so presume thats the reason for it, although she has been eating a lot of fruit recently, especially strawberries. Could that have triggered this kind of reaction? If its the latter I feel like a very bad mum..
No I don't think it's the strawberries, they are more of an allergy trigger.
I would most certainly say it's the teeth.
Poor little mite, I think it's just a case of giving her loads of water to make her wee less concentrated and thats it really, I'm suprised Sudocrem hasn't helped I'd consider that miracle cream along with Bepanthen
It might be thrush. My DS had it once and it caused the worst nappy rash ever. I'd take her to the GP just to rule that out (or you can get cream over the counter at the chemist but obviously you have to pay)
Its an Aussie brand called Daktozin. Mostly made up of zinc oxide. I'm seeing a nurse tomorrow for a general check up so will show her DD's rash. Sounds like it could be thrush as it really is horrific.
