    Blisters please help!

    Hi,
    My little boy 6months has several blisters on his bum and folds of his legs near his crotch. One appeared on Sunday night on his bum, and I took him to the GP on monday, it had popped by the time I saw it so i wasn't sure at that stage what it was, she prescribed cortisone cream, which hasn't done anything and he has four more now, including one on his back, where the nappy stops IYKWIM?
    I am really worried , has anyone else experienced this?

    Jen - it could be thrush. Take him to the pharmacy and show them, you can get cream for it over the counter. Good luck. If it is, it clears up pretty quickly with the right stuff (Daktozin)
