So my little guy was diagnosed with a fungal nappy rash a couple of weeks back, the doctor said it's common for this time of year and is seeing a lot of them at the moment because of the heat. He gave us an OTC cream and said it was fine to keep using cloth. It had started to clear and was looking better but last night the little guy was up screaming for 3 hours. I thought he had a stomach ache so was trying to treat that, then changed his nappy and saw this rash was back and a million times worse than before. I put the cream on and put him in a sposie because I put the cream on so thick. He instantly calmed and passed out with tiredness.
Now I don't know if I should keep him in sposies and get the rash gone for good, or at least mostly clear before putting cloth back on and also how I should treat my nappies to get rid of the nastiness. I finally have a new washing machine so I was thinking washing on either a hot cotton wash or baby care cycle to strip, with a medic rinse followed by the normal cold rinses and possibly a canesten/ dettol laundry rinse (we have special formulations for laundry rinses).
What would you do in this situation?
