blistering nappy rash (with pic)

Postby purplekat » Thu Jul 09, 2009 8:03 pm

Has anyone else had to deal with a rash like this? - it started when she pooed in her night nappy so was sleeping on it for a bit - that was nearly a week ago and I'm having trouble clearing it up. The number of spots has reduced but some are just not shifting at all.

I agree that the GP should take a look. I'd be surprised if a poo could cause such a nasty, sustained rash though - is your LO teething?

I find that metanium is fab, but when Jasmine recently had a (teething-related) nappy rash that went septic she needed two courses of antibiotics to clear it up :shock:

Looks like it was a thrush rash - we went to the seaside the other day and I left her without a nappy on while she played in the sea and on the beach - when we got home, her rash had gone down a lot, it's still a bit red but all the blisters have gone now so she's a lot better now.
Not sure whether it was the sea water or all the fresh air that cleared it up but it's worked wonders either way! :D

Glad it has cleared up - that rash (sorry didn't see it before) looks very similar to the rash Ben had which got so many different diagnosis' that no one actually knew what it was even a&e.

Looks just like a rash that W had and it took forever to clear up til our GP prescribed a cream.
