    sudocrem?

    Had to take my daughter to see the doc today cos she has a terrible rash, explained despite sudocrem its still spreading, doc told me it wont of done owt to help cos its a barrier cream, yet on the pot i have in front of me it says 'antiseptic healing cream' and can be used for surface wounds among other things,so whats that all about?

    Dunno but I use sudocrem for everything and it always clears up everything on my kids.

    My doctors wont endorse the use of Sudocrem and prescribe something else, but my health visitor said its only because its so dear.

    But Sudocrem has been around for years and my Mum even used it on me when I was wee, only advice I can give ya is maybe dont plaster it on.

    i don't think it will do the rash any harm especially if she is itchy, but if it's a viral rash it wont stop spreading till it's run its course. You might be better with calomine lotion.

    yeah ve always used it on my 3 from babes upwards, just found it odd that he said that

    clean with warm water, no soap. leave bare so air can get to it. should heal quicker than covering with sudocrem. been there, done that many times.

    sudocrem is a arrier cream, hence why its used on butts, it does have antiseptic in it, ut antispeptic does not stop something getting worse, it will help keep it clean though

    Just had a look and it does say "antiseptic healing cream" swear by the stuff, Docs arent always right!!!, my mum has been on durogesic pain patches for 2 years now, went to see her specialist who wanted to reduce them from 50mg to 37.5mg, wrote to her doc, she went to see her and she said "they dont do 12.5mg patches" (one 25mg & one 12.5mg), so she reduced her from 50mg to 25mg, she was in unbearable pain and had to go back, when the doc looked into it she said "oh they do make 12,5mg ones sorry) so she spent a week unable to sleep & nearly crying from pain

    the doc gave me something for her, he didnt know what it was, said could be viral, could be eczema :roll: so i guess i'll have to wait and see

    if it does turn out to be eczema then you are best off not putting anything on it for now

    he advised me to use the cream he gave me (fucidin H) untill it goes, said then to use vaseline but went on to prescribe a mosturising cream but the chemist didnt have it, so i dont remember name, told me to use up to 4 times a day, but i think i will go see my GP about it all, i just wanted it seen now for peace of mind.

    I have horrible eczema at the moment and my mum bought me some sudocream to try but it hasn't helped so maybe that's why the Doctor told you not to use it. I'm trying Calendula Cream atm (herbal remedy) and it's starting to feel a bit better so maybe give that a go?!

    Is the rash infected and needs antibiotics then?

    Fucidin is an antibiotic .. does the rash have little yellow spots on it? If it needs an antibiotic, sudocrem certainly wont help with that and the fucidin has hydrocortisone in it too.. that will help it heal x x

    he said it doesnt look infected

    If we talking about a rash on bottom,as in nappy rash,it might be thrush. Mine didn't get nappy rash,but 1 time 1 them had really bad runs and despite getting nappy off there and then,it got rashy and turned to thrush.So just keep in mind it could be that.

    I'm pretty sure fucidin is an antibiotic.. call nhs direct if you're worried or ask the doc tomorrow...

    oh I'm sorry i thought it was a baby

    me supposing just because it was sudocrem.. so sorry...

    keep the rash areas clean and well aired, perhaps they got hot and sticky and this produced some kind of rash like heat rash which the doc doesnt want to get infected so he's given you the antibiotic cream.

    Wish docs would explain themselves better!

    i have read the leaflet that came with it, it can be used to treat infections but also says 'corticosteroid reduces swelling and redness,itching of the skin, and is often used to treat conditions where the skin is inflamed such as eczema and dermatitis', but i will take her to see our GP x

    Fucidin does clear up things,I'm sure we had it prescribed in past for Impetigo on face,eldest had it odd time.

    Try get it cleared up before weather gets warmer here.

    yes the corticosteroid bit means its a steroid cream i'm pretty sure that is an antibiotic.. the H stands for hydrocortisone which also helps heal.

    I hope she feels better soon.. at 9 it must be driving her crazy x x

    hun as it been warm where you are, maybe the heat as irratated the skin, if its under arm and back of legs tats where heat rashes tend to appear

    Probably,could be anything though,like a change in eating habits,say been eating 1 type of food particularly more than usual,could be something used to wash caused the effect.But try get it sorted now before the heat comes.
    Keep in mind it migth be hormone related too.

    under arms and front of legs, along with a shrug she was wearing (thought maybe it had irritated her) thats what i thought it was at first a heat rash, but 2 days and spreading hence me getting it seen to :thumbsup: maybe it was and its just a bad case, or she could be allergic to something, i guess trial and error?

    only just finished reading thread, sorry missed where the heat had already been mentioned, my little lad gets tiny little blisters on his ears and it doesnt have to be real hot or anything, just a real bright day, its dead weird, 1st couple of times he had we really couldnt work it out, but like you say trial and error, now always wears a hat if it is a real bright day, good luck and hope you get it sorted soon x

    it was weird because we just couldnt work it out, it was almost like he had fallen into nettles or something, after about the 3rd, 4th time of them appearing we relaised what it was, like i said it doesnt even need to be hot, just really bright, he also gets chapped lips if he eats big tomatoes, but doesnt with the little toms, took us ages to work that one out too, funny little things eh

    Might be worth having a chat to about it so she knows if it does happen,nothing to be scared of. My Mum didn't tell me anything about it at all,however when I was 10 a girl in my class had a Tampax booklet all about it and luckily I understood from that.
    Probably bit young to start periods,although been known in some girls in primary school,but hormones and things might be just starting up.
