what do people use/do for rashes on the bum. Normally mine don't bug me, but tonight it's awful. can't move without killing. I broke down and used some of my daughters diaper rash creme in hopes it would help, nothing yet (does that mean it doesn't work for my daughter?) lol

I use nappy creams all the time,some more effective than others! I also use one thats called sudocrem, not sure if you can get it where you are but I think its the zinc that helps, so maybe try and get a cream with zinc in it. I also use germaloid as a barrier cream too on odd days, but I have hemmies anyway,just think it stops them from irritating so much but doesn't make them go away!

Penantin baby cream might help, it has zinc but also other ingredients as well.

As you may have seen me posting, cuz, ya know, I just can't say this enough.

Vitamine E ointment is faaaaB!!! Both for rashes and roids (the hemmer's not the ster's)

In Canada there's Webber's vite E ointment, first aid section of drugstore. ** Make sure it's an ointment and wear old undies.

Alternatively you can make your own with Vaseline and multi-sourced vite E caps, experiment, 1 -2 caps / table spoon of Vaseline.

For a rash, you might also want to try oatmeal baths too.
