Baby red bums

My daughter now had 2 sets of antibiotics. I gave her the last course of antibiotics on Friday. While she was on the antibiotics I gave her probotics as well. I know when I have antibiotics my pee burns me and then I usually have a yeast infection. Could this be the cause of my daughter's burnt "Kwakkie" (Sorry!!) It is not burnt at her bum but basicly 70% burnt in the front. What can I use for this because bum cream is definitely not working. It also looks as if she is itching there. I have used Bepathen (Spelling?) but it is not helping. I am also giving her "Baba Suur" that a sister suggested.

Try Nystatin cream and see if this helps as this is the treatment for candida infection which is common after antibiotics. Keep her on the Probiotics for at least another 10 days.

My baby was also on anti biotics and got a very sore bum.
The paed told me to give him Nyastacid Oral drops - 1ml 4 times per day. You can get that over the counter at the pharmacy. I also find Anti-Peol excellent to use. Use that every time you change her nappy. YOu can also give her
Reuteri drops - 10 drops 3 times per day. That is also a very good pro-biotic.
Hope this helps!! It did for my baby

You can also try Calendula cream.
