Q.

Nappy rash

Hello Doc!
Thank you for the advice on the deselex and zyrtec!

Next question, my one year old has very bad nappy rash..
We think it is because of teething...

At the moment we are using Multipeol and maizina.
We tried Daktarin, but that did not help....

What else can we try???

I thought about mixing my some daktarin , nystatin and bactroban with some multipoel... Will that work?

Thank you so mcuh!
I just feel so sorry for him....

It would be best to give your baby a probiotic such as Reuterina 5 drops daily for 10 days.Also make sure that your baby gets additional zinc in his diet. You can give him Zinplex syrup supplement daily.You have tried the best of the nappy creams with little success, so you will need to use Mylocort Cream twice daily for a few days to clear your baby's nappy rash.Also use the Multipeol cream after every nappy change.
