Samantha had a 2-week episode of diarrhoea recently and she developed a sore rash around the anus due to excessive watery bowel movement. We tried heaps of different sorts of diaper rash cream but they all didn’t seem to help at all!
So we consulted one of our friends who works as a paediatrician and we were told that in a local children’s intensive care unit, there is a ‘special concoction’ that is used for children who had very bad nappy rashes. We tried it and her rash disappeared overnight! (and no more pain!)
Only 2 ingredients are needed for this fantastic recipe and best of all, it is completely natural! Here’s the recipe for everyone-
- Corn starch
- break the egg and separate the white from the yolk. Discard the yolk (or use it to make egg tarts, if you wish).
- mix a tablespoon of cornstarch into the egg white.
- smear the egg white corn starch mixture onto the rash and let it air dry.
**Caution – DO NOT use this if your child has an egg allergy or has not eaten eggs before! The consequence of an allergic reaction can be severe and life threatening!!
(Yes, I was a bit doubtful before trying this strange concoction. However, a quick Google search for ‘egg white corn starch nappy rash’, resulted in a surprising number of websites with people claiming its efficacy, plus we was getting desperate, so we gave it a shot.)
