Anyone used Aloe Vera for nappy rash?


Freya is asleep at the moment so I can't try it yet, but I can't believe this didn't occur to me before I have an aloe vera plant and it's great for stuff like scratches and sunburn, so nappy rash? Freya has two really really sore bits on her bum from all the nasty diarrhoea, the skin is just starting to break and I am just doing no nappy times and chamomile/salt water bathing.

Has anyone used neat aloe vera on this sort of thing before? Does it work?

I have tried metanium, bepathen, kamillosan, sudocrem, nothing really works.

Lol I'm looking forward to her waking up now so I can test it

Isn't aloe vera a natural healer? I've never used aloe vera specifically for nappy rash or other cuts etc but if it's harmless it's worth a try. May have to have a go too because we have bad nappy rash again to the point it's bleeding. Not very much help but I hope Freya's bottom is better soon x x x

i did see a cream that had it in and as beccie said its a natural healer so probably works great, try wet boosters too, soak nappy inserts in chamomile tea and leave on for a bit to sooth it

hope it gets better soon x

When I was in Fuerteventura a couple of years ago, I ran about drunk looking for an aloe vera plant to put on my sun burn I found one and got John to put it on my back after much convincing and I felt better almost immediatly so I now have a an aloe vera plant and I use it for everything, like wee burns, scratches. I love it x

Lol yeah the last one was called Vernon but he died. Ha ha I'm a bit mad.

Yeah I've heard that about the soaking a liner, she just had a long chamomile bath with a bit of salt chucked in and is now dripping in aloe, lol. How does the soaking a liner thing work overnight? What happens when she wees and the liner is all wee covered instead of chamomile covered? Dammit why do they have to wee so much?!

Did you go to one of the factories out there? We went and they wanted us to try the products and I said 'no, I can't it brings me out in a rash' and they said nonsense- no-one is allergic to aloe, well 10 minutes later I had a big rash where they had put it on the back of my hand

I used to sell aloe vera stuff, it definitely does work and I've used it on Aisling. Only thing is it used to sting her if it was kind of weeping if you know what I mean.
