    Sorry I know this probably sounds like a really idiotic question but how do you apply sudacrem on boys and do you use it at every change? Were currently switched to wipes asked find they're a lot dryer obviously than using cotton wool so dont want him getting sore but not sure if you apply it everywhere including testicles and Willy or just around? Xxx

    I only use it when he's a bit red so on his bum, under is ball area and his groin creases. His willy and balls seem ok so i leave them but Im sure if your lo is dry you can use it all over

    No I do the sudacreme a couple of times during the day and make sure I dry all his creases each time so it doesn't get sore

    I use it as and when I need but always put it in his nighttime nappy as I don't know how long he'll go before being changed.

    Can't use any creams on Jacob, he seems to have an allergic reaction to them, I have to use a special paste all the time.

    we were told no talc for girls cos it can get in there foof bits and things but nothing about boys :/

    We dont use nappy rash stuff every change as if you use it every change it creates a watertight barrier between skin and nappy and can create nappy rash appaarently........... we just use is as and when hes sore and just on the sore bit! x

    wow how does that work then? Does it dry up after a while. I just been reading into it and said something about a starch based one should be OK. I'm surprised my hv didnt say anything, all she did was moan that it was johnsons and shouldnt be using that till hes 6 months as a lot of babies develop skin complaints from it when younger xxx
