Just a quick question. My 4 mth old bubba has a really nasty red rash underneath her neck that won't go away. I've tried curash powder, my day care mum suggested corn flour, and i even asked the doctor if there was anything i could put on it. He said that it was a particulary hard place to heal, due to drooling and sweatiness. He suggested putting dettol on it to stop any infections, but basically there was not much i could do until she starts holding her head up constantly and gets some air under there. Get this, he also suggested that i could use a hair dryer to dry the area out a bit. He obviously has forgotton what it's like to have a baby... yeah she'd really enjoy that!!
It doesn't seem to be bothering her, and i don't think it is painful for her, though she's not too keen to let me see it!
Did anyone else have a bubba with this, and if so do you have any suggestions on how to get rid of it?
