We both used hydrocortisone (steriod) on our boys sparingly on patches that were stubborn or looking angry.
We do not suggest long term steroid use on your children.
Our main source of healing and hydration for our boys skin was the Pure Fiji range. We were consistent and moisturised them at every nappy change, straight after their baths, and everywhere inbetween. Being very careful not to contaminate creams and lotions, by always having clean hands when applying.

The lovely Lisa from NO TRACE will be helping us with great alternatives to steroids and her recommended schedule for use. TBC.

We will also be gathering more detailed information on steroids and topical steroid withdrawal also.
