How Can Nappy Rash Be Treated Apart From Using Rashfree And Siloderm?

Hello my daughter is 1 month old and has severe nappy rash . I consulted a pediatrician 3 weeks ago and was prescribed rash free however the rash didnt go....I consulted the doctor again 2 days ago as the rash is bad and was prescribed siloderm. I could see a reduction in the rash...However the area around the rash has become red and a new tiny rash is appearing and my baby is crying with the new rash that is developing. Plz help

Hello,

Nappy rash is very common.

But the best defence against nappy rash is a dry bottom.

I also recommend using smooth cream or ointment to your baby's clean, dry bottom before putting on a clean diaper.

Look for zinc oxide or petrolatum (petroleum jelly) on the ingredients list.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
