I've found with us that re-usable wipes do tend to aggravate rashes and for us the earth-friendly-baby-company wipes were the best thing, soothing and calming and gentle...

I don't think I can really add anything to the above suggestions other than suggest that if you don't already then give your nappies a 60degree wash to kill any lurking nasties... And yes lots of nappy off time!

Disposables may not help (don't for us) but it depends what the problem is...

Rash still there Steph but not bleeding anymore. Still patting bum rather then wiping over sores. Using the cammomile only wash for her. Using cream from docs but not cleared up as well as i had hoped by now. I do have to ring GP surgery tomorrow to find out swab result that doctor took from her rash last week. If there's no improvement in a week i will make another appointment.

Evie was in disps over weekend while we were away as MIL was looking after her. That hasn't helped much either :shock: :roll:

SOOO glad it's not bleeding any more - poor thing...

Hope the GPs can work out what it is and get it fixed... Let us know if you want any more ideas! :)
