How do I treat a nappy rash?

My baby girl has the worst nappy rash. I think she's teathing but I'm really concerned about it.. She has a very fair skin and has a dark red rash. She also has a bit of diorrhoea.

the best thing for nappy rash is johnsons baby powder! loads of it.i was given this tip 16 years ago when my son was a baby and after trying it never used any nappy rash cream again.

do you breastfeed? you should spray some breastmilk on it. the white blood cells in the breastmilk help to fight whatever it may be

I found what I consider to be the best cream ever. You have to order it online though, unless you live in Atlantic Canada. My guy does not get diaper rash but it cleaned up an allergic reaction to some wipes in 1 day. I even use it on his face occasionally when he gets rashy. It is natural and not at all greasy or sticky.

could be thrush.....

but here's some hints. aveeno rash cream, dr. smiths rash cream, boudreaus it great too.... if nothing else try an old wise tale.... my grammie told me about it with my 1st child and now i am on number 4 and still will swear by it.... cisco and pure corn stratch... seriously.....

when babies teeth there are some many things that come with it and each child is different... cold like systomps, pulling on the ear, fever, sleeping alot, fussy.... all my did at least 2 of the above... cadence sleeps more, like she needs that, and tugs on her ears.....

My advise is to go and see the doctor, it may not be a nappy rash at all but a thrush or something else.
It's an old wife's tale that teething babies get nappy rash or other things like that.

Try using boudreaux's butt paste or something like desitin (boudreaux's works best for my kids). If it doesn't clear up call your pediatrician. There are prescription creams that they can prescribe for it.
