hi,

 

I took my son to the doctors on wednesday for a very nasty nappy rash, she had a look and gave us a cream to us (Hydrozole) 3 times a day. On the visit he had the nappy rash over his testicles, and half on his penis.

 

i didnt get the cream till thursday which we have been using now for the last 16 hours.

 

But my question is: The tip of his penis is inflamed and red and when i go to touch around his penis he tries so hard to get away from me. I need to know what is happening and what i should do?

I had to google hydrozole, since we don't have it in the US under that name.  

 

It seems to be a basic all purpose anti-fungal (looks similar to monistat which is available in the US.)  So it sounds like your Dr suspects a fungal infection. This seems a good first course of treatment, but if it doesn't work go back for a culture.  When treating a minor infection on the genitals it's always good to treat for fungal first.

 

If putting it on him is too much of a struggle, try putting it on while he is sleeping.  You could also put some on a tissue and put the tissue inside his diaper when you change him, the cream will rub off the tissue on to his penis and testicles when he moves around.

 

Also, make sure he gets some naked time to let things air and dry out.

 

If you use cloth diapers, they will need to be sanitized.

I agree to let things air out. Also, when my son had a similar problem, I put a drop of my breast milk on the tip at each diaper change. Momma's milk is so powerful. Good luck.
