Nappy Rash

Hi my baby girl, 10months old, is teething and along with that comes nappy rash. my concern is that it just doesnt seem to be getting better. Today it looked very angry, almost like fever blisters. i have been bathing her in rooibos a couple of times and using bum cream, bennets and fissan.

is it possible to transfer feaver blisters from your mouth when changing her. The ladies at the nursery school always change the babies with gloves, so im really hoping its just a case of a bad rash.

This does sound llike a bad nappy rash. Often a rash like this starts when a wet nappy is left on too long. Try Antipeol Nappy cream for this rash. I have heard that it is difficult to find this cream, but it is very effective for treating this particular kind of nappy rash.

It is probably just bad nappy rash!
Try Multipeol,or go to a pharmacy and ask them to mix you a concoction...Put that on thickly,and cover with Maizena...
or you can cover it with Johnson''s corn starch powder - purple bottle of powder you get at the baby stuff....

Shame, good luck!
