You've probably tried this, just wondered if maybe its worth trying a different brand of nappy. Can you link the rash to any-thing bubs eats, like does it come up bad after a poo etc? Poor bubba, that must be annoying for all of you. Maybe you could try some corn flour, just on an off chance some-thing in the creams or curash stuff is reacting as well. Its cheap, natural and excellent at putting a protective layer over bubs skin and absorbing some excess moisture. Best of luck sweetie.

Hi Lisa,

I too have had some problems recently with being unable to solve persistent, and painful, nappy rash (from bub teething).

I have tried everything, and found a winner with one I found at my local chemist, but made by the Womens & Children's Hospital (in Adelaide) - a 75g tub costs about $9 - it contains Cod Liver Oil (109 mg/g); Zinc Oxide (227mg/g), and Benzoin Comp Tincture (91mg/g). I thought I'd put the vitals there in case you arent in Adelaide, but might be able to find one similar.

The upside is obvious - it works very very quickly, even on the reddest rash.

The downside is that bubs smells like fish, but he's a happy fish at that!!!!

Good luck!
