It's one thing after another with my poor LO I changed her nappy this morning and she was a bit red so applied some sudacrem which normally does the trick and reduces any redness by the next change- changed her an hour later and the rash and turned into two little blisters (both at the front two sides) I've given her a bath and let her be free which is what we do nearly every night so she's not always in nappies- what should I do/buy to sort this out?
I was just coming on to say Bepanthan. I'm not sure it does much good at sorting out a rash but it is a really effective barrier cream, I use it when teething or with a dickie tummy and have found it really effective. Free time to let rash dry out then barrier cream when nappy on sorted any redness/ rash out within a day for me.
6 weeks old on wednesday- the cream seems to be reducing the redness and it hasn't got any worse, the sores are still there but I guess they won't go overnight - going to give it until Tuesday and ring the drs if no better (or tomorrow if it gets worse) plenty more nappy off time as well and using water to wipe her down.
Metanium is best, but we had to go to Drs with DS to get a course of antifungal stuff. Tried three different prescriptions till we got the right one poor mite. Make sure you're drying completely, and try different brands of nappies. Asda little ones worked best for us.
I'm guessing it's from using wipes when we're out...(now taking cotton wool with us) I don't mean to be thick but when do people use wipes? because they are for sale by nappies so thought they would be ok for when we're not at home but it's obviously not gone down well! Today the sores are starting to get smaller and it doesn't seem to be hurting her so I'm a lot happier!
