Q.

rash or not?

Hi doc! My almost 1 year old baby girl has a single red raised bump on her vaginal area. Is this a nappy rash? She''s had this for about 2 weeks. It doesn''t seem to be paining her. How should I treat it?

This is very common and is often a reaction to a disposable nappy. It is worthwhile changing her brand of nappies to another brand. Apply Bepanthen Nappy Cream to her rash which should soon clear up.
