Hi doc i only got the chance to read your post now and i will do the research now. I just wanted to tell you that we do have her on Zinplex but it does not seem to do anything... i give her 3ml now. The box says that baby’ s 6-12 months needs to take 5ml so we thought that 3ml would do the trick but i’ m to scared to make the dose more because i don’ t know if i can. If you can please tell me about that and if i should make the dose more and if that would do the trick. The other thing that i wanted to tell you is that we have spend all our money on this child and her medicine and her medical is also depleted so we would have to wait until we can go see the doctor again. This brakes my heart but if there is no money then we do just have to wait. She is not sleeping well at all, could this also be because of the bum being so sore? At the moment i’ m using Multipeol and on top of that mezeina and it seems to be working just a little bit but it’ s not taking it away and her bum is still looking very bad.

You need to take your baby to a paediatrician. If you cannot afford private care then you need to take him to see a paediatrician at your nearest public hospital, preferably a teaching hospital. It is also essential to have his Zinc level done.

Just phoned my Gp, he saw our baby a few times and know the history and he was the one that refered us to the skin specialist but he told me that he does not want to do the tests because he does not think that it is there anyway that this could be something else?
