    Don't know about the legs, but sometimes have a problem with Ruby's neck and underarms. I find it's usally cause those bits aren't dried properly or when she's a bit sweaty. After cleaning I try and blow on these parts to make sure their totally dry or using a tiny bit of sudocrem usually works. xx

    I has the same problem with Lewis so I asked HV last week.......:blush: she said it was dry skin but where I'd put Sudacrem on it showed up more than usual. She suggested vaseline along his creases - only a small amount - to ensure his nappies stayed water tight.

    Savannah had this, we just made sure we washed it down thoroughly when she was having a bath and it went away. I think it was just leftover vernex that didn't get absorbed coz it also smelt really bad.

    Before Caitlyn goes to bed I normally put some Sudocrem under her arms and behind her knees. When she's fully asleep I pop abit under her neck. Works wonders!
