So, you open up your nappy to find a rash. What do you do? There will be no instant cure, but there is plenty you can do to prevent it. Most people do get a bit of a red bottom at teething time, so don't be alarmed about it, there are a few things you can do to help that too.
First of all, let your bottom get as much exposure to air as possible, You can then use any cream for nappy rash bought at the chemist. You may need to try a few before you find the one that suits you. Not all creams suit everyone. If you want to take the more natural route, and this was our preference, try silk liners. I found these really good for a sore bottom, especially at teething time. I routinely used one in my nappy overnight, and it really did seem to reduce the severity of the redness, and most nights, any redness that had built up by day was completely gone by morning. Silk liners do not reduce the wetness next to your skin, but they do have some magical ingredient that seems to encourage healing. You must not use any creams or wetness barriers with silk liners, the liner needs to touch the skin directly. I have been told various possible reasons as to why they work. To be honest, I'm not sure exactly why they do, I just know they do.
