Can anyone recommend a good cream for eyre (Spelling probably wrong ) My bum is really sore and red from the dreaded D.  Have tried a few of the nappy rash creams but not much help.  Tks :-)

Desitin ORIGINAL - purple label, not the blue. It's 40% zinc oxide and smells like a baby's diaper (powdery & medicinal, but NOT like poo) and it will help you literally OVERNIGHT. It IS baby diaper cream, BUT, I'm pretty positive it's the high percentage of zinc oxide that is so soothing. I have used it many times. Look for something with a high percentage of zinc oxide. Most of the standard stuff sold in the U.S. is only 10%, but they do sell the "extra strength" stuff with higher percentages. Sorry your bum hurts so badly!

I use two over the counter creams from the regular drug store. One is for hemorrhoids, called tucks. I use that one first. Then over top of it I put a like a lidocaine cream. I think its called Nupricaine or something like that. Together they work wonders and pretty quickly too. The Tucks kinda makes a seal and keeps it moist and stops the itchyness and the Nupricaine takes away the pain by basically numbing it because of the active ingredient. OH also, there is this spray that has some sort of lidocaine type stuff in it too. Its for like minor burns and scrapes and then there are these wipes I can get at the drugstore that are called medicated wipes. I take the medicated wipe and spray the spray on one side of it and just wipe with it. Its nice because the wipes are flushable so you can just drop it in the toilet when your done. I cant remember the name of the spray but its a small aerosol can and there is one thats blue and one thats red with the doctor symbol on it (the one with the snakes going around the staff).

Those are all my life savors. :-)
