White spots on bum

Hello doc!

I wrote about 2 weeks ago regarding my 13 month olds bad nappy rash.
I ended up getting a cortisone mixture from the chemist.

He is now developing white spots on his bum...
It does not really look like thrush, but more like blisters?!

Any suggestions??

Thank you for all the advice!!!

It is difficult to be sure about your baby's nappy rash without being able to see him. If he has blisters then these are normally caused by the ammonia in urine. His nappies must be changed as soon as they are wet and leaving them off for a while during the day often helps.It is a good idea to change the brand of nappy. Apply Antipeol nappy cream or the new form of this nappy cream to his rash as Antipeol is apparently not available now. Also give your baby a zinc supplement every day such as Zinplex syrup.

Hi Zee01

Mix Bepanthen with a bit of Nystacid and Bactroban and apply at each nappy change. Keep it up for a week after the rash has gone. Also, very important, give probiotics! As a mom-of-3 this has proven to help.
