    Awww hun, you're not a bad mum!! Oskar had a horrid nappy rash for about a month a while back - every time it looked like it was clearing it would suddenly just come back with a vengeance!! I think it actually was related to him teething and he'd been sick with a throat infection also. Anyway, I had been using paw paw ointment but this didn't work, also bepanthen (my friend swears by it) but it wasn't working so I tried Amolin and I smeared it quite thick on EVERY nappy change and it worked sooooo fast it was amazing. I now put it on every night after his bath and any time there's the slightest bit of red on him and it seems to get it before it can become anything. It's not very expensive either!!

    DS's bum was red raw from having gastro, the only cream that worked for me was bepanthen, it worked pretty much straight away too, which really impressed me

    Thanks heaps guys. What great ideas for me and anyone else reading this thread.

    I am just so excited to say (haha what a loser I am!!) that we have definite improvement! But you know what I think helped the most, was that yesterday she didn't do a poo (actually probably for a day and a half now) so her little bot could have rest..thankgoodness.
    I also spoke to a GP and he said to try 1% hydrocortisone cream a couple times a day, so we have been doing that too. Oh and I also gave her (probably not the best thing to do I know but I was desperate) a very weak salt bath and that seemed to help the crusty part of it and seemed to get rid of the superficial weeping that some bits had (probably was a little infection I'd say, but very mild).

    So anyway, her cute little toosh is returning to it's pink little self!

    Lee, a salt bath sounds like a very good idea! I was also told the other day that a bit of bi-carb in the bath works wonders too Glad it's clearing up, no poo definitely helps
