Hi there
My 4 week old has nappy rash on his bum crack which we have been treating with Sudocrem.
He got it when he was about a week old - I'd been using huggies wipes in the hospital and ditched them for cloth & water at home unless there was a particularly bad code brown (now I  don't use the huggies at all as I thought it was them causing it).
The nappy rash has all but healed & now I notice it has appeared in another spot on his bum crack lower down.
Could the brand of disposables we are using be causing it?
I want to point out he is changed every time he wakes & sometimes again before he goes back to bed. He never sits around in a soiled nappy.
We've got itti bitti mcns ready to use but his legs need to fatten up a bit as they are still a bit loose and will leak.
I feel guilty like I'm not looking after him properly sad.gif This is all new to me (my first babies are my Birman cats & they clean their own bottoms!)
Also can anyone tell me what nappy rash cream u can use with mcns? I heard you can't any with zinc as it sts the absorbency or causes a build up or something like that????

By far and away the BEST cream I have used is Puraforce remedies (previously relief remedies).

https://puraforceremedies.com/our-store/

Go to the Nappy Rash part of the page and click on the "baby rash ointment". We didn't discover this until my son was already 2, and it is incredible. MCN safe (no zinc) and it has been the most effective thing on all sorts of nappy rash.

And no - I am not affiliated with the brand, just a huge fan!

dont feel guilty bout nappy rash!!!

i doubt thats its the nappies, i think its just "his bacteria"

try lost of nappy free time - great in summer! best doing tummy time, just place towels underneath!!!

ebm works well - just dab some milk on it!

deep water baths! - so he can tretch downwards in the bath (der, you should get in with him and hold him...)

we use calmospeten (sp?) its what we were given in hospi when he had a real bad nappy rash.. like his bum was red raw!
