Nappy rash caused by teething

hi, my poor 9month old is cutting his 6th tooth and consequently having very bad running nappies which has made his wee bum break down so badly. I always use loads of sudocrem which in 9months has prevented nappy rash and have switched to metanium. He is changed as soon as he is dirty and i am using cooled water and cottonwool for cleaning his bum and baths. But is there anything else that would help?? He had me in tears yesterday because he cries so sorely when i change him - its heartbreaking!

Desitin overnight cream. It has 40% zinc oxide. It was the only thing that helped our son after we thru constant prescription creams. Desitin overnight is amazing. Purple tube. Make sure its the overnight.

we use Lunar Eclipse Diaper Cream, you can get it at Zerhs in the organic section... This is the best stuff ever, it clears up every type of rash you can think of, it's pretty much clear, and it's amazing... it's in a small glass jar, get some and it'll do wonders, the other thing, let the bum air out as much as possible, when my son allows it, we keep him airing out for several minutes until his bum doesnt feel damp any more, that's prevented many diaper rashes already...

It is very common for them to get rashes while teething, but if it is that bad you may take him to the doctor. They can become worse than normal if it is a bacteria or yeast infection. Then if it is not the doctor could also give you something stronger to help him through the rash. Hope that helps.
