Post subject: Nappy Rash
My little girl is 26 days old and has had really bad nappy rash for abut a week now, I don't understand it because I've been making sure I clean hee properly and using water and cotton wool (not wipes). I went to doc and she gave me some anti fungal cream but the rash still seems to be getting worse by the day! Has anyone got any ideas about how to reduce it?

Hey hun. I was the same couldnt understand how issy got it - she got like spot sized areas of it 1 just two and i didnt know what it was - went docs who said hmmm just bit infected skin maybe n gave cream / made it worse! Next day she had two more appear overnight n existing ones were bigger. So i went back n another doc saw her - she had to get another doc to come n look!!!!! She said never seen nappy rash so isolated b4 but gave her cream plus the bepantham stuff i think - one is yellow n stains everything!!! Cleared it right up. Id go back if its worse - give it a day or so n if like same or worse id return. Could be wrong cream.
Yes also air time n ensuring dry etc xx

The yellow cream someone mentioned sounds like metanium. Was recommended by my healrh visitor. My daughters rash was caused by wipes but if your not using them it's not that. Could it be the nappies you are using? Maybe switch brand and see if it makes a difference.

Sorry haven't replied did read them just been really busy!
I tried metanium, as a lot of other people also recommended it, but Ava had a reaction to it and got really really sore.
We've found that the only thing that works is smothering her nappy area in sudocrem every time we do her nappy.
This was working and her nappy rash disappeared but it's returned because she's started teething already!
