    Sweat rash

    Hi all. So my one arm i cannot lift. Even though my partner dries my underarm I am getting rashes. Obviously by not moving my arm its getting sweaty and causing a rash. Steroid cream helped but wondered if anyone can recommend something i can use daily.

    I've purchased a better anti persperant but wondered if anyone can recommend a cream etc to help 😇

    If it's not fungal, once the rash cleared up, you could try a barrier cream such as Cavilon, or a zinc nappy rash cream - I like the Aveeno one, especially when it's on offer! Eurax is meant to be good too, but it's not for daily use.

    My well-padded hoist sling annoys my underarms (not my armpits) as I am just skin and bone on my my sides, so I've to keep my torso well moisturised.

    Hope you find a good solution. xx

      Thank you Ellie I have got nappy cream so I will try. The steroid cream sorted the rash within 3 days so now want to prevent.

      I looked at cavilon on Google but I love aveeno product so pop one in my tesco shop. Cheers lovely lady x

            This is just a thought and might not help... when I broke my shoulder I had to have a weighted plaster cast to hold the arm down for 12 weeks and had the same issue with sweat rash. I used baby talcum powder and this worked and prevents sweat rash. Just normal Johnsons. Might work the same for u. Xx

                  I use the bedtime version on my hands at night before my braces are put on: works a treat keeping my hands cool and dry, can't say it does much for my sleep 😏😂😂

                      It's not sherbet dib dabs that I'd worry about being mistakenly put between your toes 😂😂😂😘

                          Hi, I use magical Sudocrem on my husband on just about anything and everything! Seems to help with rashes, itching, hot spots and general suspicious looking patches which may or may not be about to give us trouble! We’ve tried lots of other lotions and barrier creams etc but Sudocrem seems to work the best X
