dd has been having a fungal nappy rash for about 2 weeks, it is improving, esp after doctor's cream (fucicort) but am a bit worried cos hasn't totally gone. is two weeks too long or should i not worry? should i take her to the docs again tomorrow in case?

try sage on the area

let the sage or sage tea bag steep in boiled water for at least 10 minutes then use cotton bud to swab about 4 times a day. Usually i did it when changing the nappy

my doctor recommended this to me and it worked really well.

I sat her afew times in teh basin in the tea - lukewarm
