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
I posted this on your other thread, but in case you do'n't see it here it is again.
Do you use disposables?
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
