This time I suspect she's got thrush again as it's a nasty pimply rash :(

I think she's teething which has always heralded nasty rashes for us, and yet again not much seems to be working, wool at night helps as does the shea butter but it seems so itchy for the poor girl...

We had nappy off time as usual last night but had to put and end to it as she was just scratching and scratching and scratching...

Will be ordering some of that angel balm Ruth recommended today to see if that'll help but of course that won't arrive for a good few days yet :(

I'm wondering if cows-milk is making it worse as she's been spurning boob in favour of moo milk during the day recently and glugging LOADS!!

poor ypu, and poor isabelle. we are thank goodness coming to the tail end of our nasty rash (i hope) in the end canestan, nappy off time and metanium did the trick, but he has been left with such dry patches from using all the creams that it almost looks worse! have now bought weleda nappy cream and shea butter and bepanthan to try and get rid of the dry bits.
poor little dumpling, and poor isabelle too, hope it gets better very soon

I'm glad you've found a 'magic cream'. Katie had an awful rash that lasted months so I can sympathise :cry:

I'm wondering if cows-milk is making it worse as she's been spurning boob in favour of moo milk during the day recently and glugging LOADS!!


That is an interesting point - Katie got hers around 16months just as I was stopping the day feeds and she was starting to drink more cows milk. The milk never even occurred to me, but it makes sense.i

We've got an aloe vera plant and I keep forgetting to try it out! Can't get more natural than that really! lol

It has had a baby so I might repot some for Erins's room so I can just snap it off and use it when I change and dress her etc
