DD (20 months) has some bad nappy rash on one side only and right at the front. She doesn't seem to be bothered by it - even though it had bled slightly on occasion and still does look quite sore. Previous occurences have always been linked to teething and have cleared up quite quickly just using sudocrem.
This time however (and she is teething), it doesn't appear to be working and a weeks worth of metanium has made it slightly better but it's still there and still looks quite sore.
So - given that this has been going on so long - 3 weeks now - should I take her to the doctors to see if it's anything more sinister or does anyone have any other cream / treatment ideas?
I agree re thrush, but go to GP anyway, Timodine is the only thing that works on DS and it's prescription only. It contains an antifungal, antibacterial and hydrocortisone works wonders almost instantly.
My doc said to let air get to it as much as possible....can get a bit messy though if they decide to wee everywhere! I would let DD run around after every nappy change for 10 mins or so and that seemed to work quite well.
