Z has broken skin between her bum cheeks, it's causing her to cry while pooing. This morning she went four times as I think she is doing a little, it hurts so she stops, but then she needs to go again so its a viscious circle and making things worse!
Do I just treat the same as normal nappy rash? I've just sent her to nursery and asked them to use her cream and change her nappy a bit more often.

I use metanium when it's like that. It heals so quickly it's fantastic.
Use it a couple of times today, especially for her bedtime nappy and it will be a million times better in the morning

We already use metanium and I agree its great. But I wasnt sure if it was ok on broken skin? It was like it last night and was no better this morning.

It's what I use on broken skin as I couldn't see anything in the leaflet saying to not use on broken skin and most creams do tend to say that. For mild nappy rash I use sudocrem but that is useless is it's broken or bleeding, so I put the metanium on and it definitely helps with it stopping bleeding or being raw

When S had broken skin with his nappy rash he hated metanium and it made him cry. I used raw egg white after a recommendation on here and it was the only thing that worked. Not sure if that would work with nursery though? It had quite a quick effect so maybe do it overnight tonight?

Cavilon no-sting barrier cream or spary is amazing, does what it says and doesn't sting or hurt and really clears the skin up quickly. If you get the spray you dont even need to touch the area if it's really sore. You can buy it over the counter for about £10, but it's worth every penny and not worth waiting for a prescription when they're in that much pain IMO x

Thanks ladies! It seems much better today, no tears when pooing this morning so I'll think we'll stick with the metanium. Will bear in mind the other suggestions for if it happens again.
