Its got to the point where its not even a rash its deep red cuts . I change her ALL the time, dab her when wiping and covering in metanium and sudocreme (depending on whats in changing bag and whats upstairs)
Shes been having lactulose which means she goes to toilet more (i change her straight away) Nothing seems to be working and I have no idea why?
Starting today I am changing her diet for a bit off fruits etc. Any ideas or tips?
My babys had bad nappy rash a couple of times so I feel your pain. For us it seems ot be down to dioreah and therefore diet. Cutting out dairy helped.
Metanium works best as a really thin layer. I also found that for my lo, sudocrem made it worse and burnt the skin off a bit. At all other times it is our preferred cream but i dont like putting it on broken skin. Maybe try vaseline instead which will act as a barrier. It works for us anyhoo so may be worth a shot.
Ahh poor girl, sounds like how my lo was, is she teething? I just kept her nappy off unless we had to go out and when I put her nappy on just a thin layer of metanium. Messy business but cleared it up lol. Oh and I stopped using wipes, cotton wool and water. Hope it clears up soon xx
Thank you everyone. Not sure if its teething, shes 9months still no teeth lol! So we have horrific teething nights that go on for weeks and then still nothing! Going to try stopping sudocrem.. I did think this before because, have you ever put it on your face for a sore nose or spots that have been squeezed? It burns! x
Metanium is the best thing to use, also although it can be very messy sometimes nappy off time will work wonders as the air will help to heal. Also make sure you remove the metanium and reapply at every nappy change xx
We had this problem really badly with our son, no matter how many times he's changed it still flared up and skin broke and was raging. We took him to Dr and was prescribed cream because none of the usual shop bought creams worked. The prescribed cream had cleared him up completely in a week
