Rachelle, NZ, son George 10.12.02, Ian 15.06.04
As sable was saying our son recently had a nasty one on his bottom. We were blaming day care and thinking they were not changing his nappies or using any cream. But it turned out due to his constant antibiotics from his ear infections he had thrush in his system. It was explained to us that it can sit in their gut which can give them really smelly poos and a nasty nappy rash(as you know nappy rash is a fungal infection a form of thrush). We put him on Symbiotique which is a freeze dried probiotics which puts the good bacteria back into his system. Mind you its not cheap a bottle 60gram net $32.00, but it seems to help with the smell and the nasty rash. I am not saying this is what you need to do but just mentioning it in case there is anyone else in the same position as us who may read this post. Good luck!

Try Canestan from the Chemist. It if for fungal infections and is always my last resort for bad nappy rashes. It works great and very quick. It is about $10.00 for a medium size tube, but well worth it!
