    Livvy has been getting a bit of rash all over her bum really but then it'll disappear after a few days - i use sudocrem & bepantham but she's now got it on her flower and it looks so so sore! To the point where its blistered :( poor little thing!

    I'm trying my best to keep her dry and clean but she's had it for about 4 days now, is there anything else anyone would recommend??

    If its not eased off i'll be taking her docs and i hope its not something else! :shrug:

    She seems fine in herself so it might just look worse than it actually is but still cant be nice for her. Its horrible i cant just take all the bad stuff away!

    What do you think?

    I would try Metanium, Izzy has only has a rash when she was teething, and it cleared it up in about 24 hours!

    I've never tried that Metanium stuff but I'll keep that in mind for future :)
    Seren's had quite bad nappy rash a couple of times, and all I could really do for her was let her have as much nappy free time as possible. Then smear sudocrem all over the rash and stick her nappy back on. She'd have a good couple of hours nappy free though which seemed to really help. Hope it clears up soon hunx

    Is she Teething??.Mia had it really bad there when she was teething.If its that bad that the cream is not sticking to the skin then would take her to the docs for some stronger cream.In the mean time plenty of nappy off time and put the cream onto her nappy rather than her skin but it will prob need changing sooner as the cream will reduce the absorbancy.xx

    We tried all of the over-the-counter remedies on a very bad rash (broken sores) that Jasper had and none of them worked.

    In the end we ended up going natural and brewed up chamomile tea and used it (cooled down, instead of water) with cotton wool balls to rinse the area rather than wipes... then dry thoroughly with plenty of air time if possible... top off with a liberal plastering of good old vaseline. Worked a treat and the rash that had been there for several weeks cleared up in just 2 days!

    my LO has bad nappy rash at the min and had to take him docs as it was bleeding and hes gave us some great cream but he said creams like sudacreme just sink into the skin and you need a barrier from it and advised us to just vasaline inbetween applications :) so go docs monday and get some :) hope all is wel

    I have the same issue with my 2 week old, and the midwife suggested to clean his bum with dry wipes and baby oil (i didn't have any dry wipes but used his flush able liners instead).. + put the barrier cream on and so far it is working (been doing this 2 days now) and it is almost gone.. though fingers crossed it wont come back this time like it has before

    My daughter had a sore bum and flower lmao. No creams seemed to work, My Gran said try egg whites???!! I thought this was strange but did it anyway because I know it was causing her pain and It completely went after 2 days!!! I couldnt believe it, Then put vaseline over it so it acts like a barrier.

    The best thing to do is to try and find out whats causing the nappy rash. I noticed that I had changed brand in baby wipes and this was causing it.

    My DD gets really bad nappy rash when she is teething, I had tried EVERYTHING
    Metanium, Sudocreme, Kamillosan, Timodene, Olive Oil and Bepanthen.
    The only thing that seems to make my DD's Nappy rash cream is 'Conotrane Cream' - It is amazing!!!
    It cost £1.16 in Tesco Pharmacy!

    Thank you all for your advice ladies, in the end i looked @ it on Sunday and thought for what its worth i'll just take her to the walk-in centre. Even the doctor said she'd never seen it that 'angry' before!

    She gave us some Timodine - lets hope this works! But i've got plenty of other options if not! Thanks again XXXXXXX
