possible thrush, nappy off time & cream...

Postby cheesebaby » Tue Jun 30, 2009 12:58 pm

My DP and I are arguing :x over whether the cream (we are now using canestan type cream) should be put on at the start of nappy off time, or at the end.

Can anyone give me an answer to this, preferably with a reason why?

Thanks :)

i'd say a few minutes before the end, to start with your letting the air get to skin and thouroughly dry the skin, Ultraviolet light is also good at naturally destorying some bacteria.

a few minutes before the end will give it a chance to soak in and not be wiped straight off by the nappy
