H has had an upset tummy since tues and hhis bottom has been red but now it's gone really raw looking and seems v sore. He's crying in pain when he poos and it looks like really bad sunburn.
what would you put on it? He's never has nappy rash or anything before. I have sudacream should I use that?
poor mite seems to be really suffering and im not sure how to help

Metanium is better to heal nappy rash. I only use sudocreme as a barrier really.

Metanium. Clears up pretty quickly and you only need to use a pea sized amount as it spreads a lot so lasts ages.

And as much nappy free time as poss. Try just using cotton wool and water too.
Definitely metanium and nappy off time x

Thank you I have metanium as a sample from somewhere so will try that. Having nappy off time but with a towel around, will that be ok as not truly free? Towel not wrapped or anything.
I didn't realise this was what nappy rash looked like its awful

I'd lather on the metabium, keep nappy off as much as possible. Use cotton wool and water with a couple drops of lavender in it for cleaning his bottom.

definitely metanium, if it gets worse or doesn't go away see the gp as mine gave me a great cream for my first when he had it really awful, like you say it looked as if he'd been burnt! Hopefully the metanium will do the trick though!
