Change to another brand of nappies.Change the nappies often and dont leave wet nappies on for too long. Use Bepanthen nappy cream.If this does not help your baby may possibly have a candida infection which is aggravating the nappy rash and you will need to use Nystatin cream at least 3 times a day, but try the Bepanthen first and see if the rash clears up.
