Nappy Rash

Some babies are more prone to nappy rash than others and it can also appear, or seem to get worse, when a baby is teething. Change baby's nappy frequently, wash the area gently with water, pat dry and use a suitable protective/barrier cream. If the rash persists or is severe, consult the health visitor, doctor or pharmacist - there are specific creams and ointments that can be used. Nappy rash may also be caused by a thrush infection - if this is the case you will need a prescription for a special anti-fungal cream.
