Now yesterday, i saw he is irritated around the anus, it there anything i can use to help that space heal? The thing is i had piles while i was preggies and i dont want him to go through the same pain..please advice

Your baby will not get piles so do not worry. Just apply a good nappy cream around his anus. Use the new Sudacreme or Bepanthen nappy creams.

Where in Gauteng can I buy Sudacreme Cream? I have only ever managed to get it from overseas and I desperately would like to know if there is a supplier in Jo' burg.
