I found Bepanthem good, but it doesn't seem to be as thick and stick as well as Curash does. Sudocreme is also very thick.
I would use Bepanthem as a healing ointment once the cause of DD's nappy rash had passed.
I use bepanthen on DD when we have needed it. Seams to work straight away.

Bepanthen Nappy Care Ointment contains:
Aqua, Lanolin, Parrafinum Liquidum, Petrolatum, Panthenol (Dexpanthenol), Prunus Dulcis, Cera Alba, Cetyl Alcohol, Stearyl Alcohol, Ozokerite, Glyceryl Oleate, Lanolin Alcohol.
I use lansinoh which is pure lanolin for breastfeeding! Found out it works really well on DS's bum when its very red. The only thing that stays on enough to keep the nasties away from already raw skin..

Our favourite bum cream is Brauers Nappy Rash cream, available from the chemist - it's a calendula based homeopathic product so very soothing and natural, with no zinc or petroleum products. Lots of nappy free time is also a saviour when their bums are red raw.

My baby ended up with nappy rash after I started using this cream, I threw it away and switched back to Sudocrem with zinc oxide and found the rash cleared up in less than two days. This cream is too runny and doesn't form a protective barrier.
Desitin, I only discovered it when bub was over one, I wish I had found it sooner, thick, stays on and heals/takes away redness very quickly.
Another one that swears by Desitin. Its available OTC at the chemist and is 30% zinc, whereas bepathan and curash are only maybe 13% zinc. This makes Desitin very thick so it stays on longer and is more protective for the skin. My DS had a nappy rash so bad at 5 days old (he was fully BF) it was bleeding and this with some sunshine cleared it up in 24 hours. Magic stuff!
Curash Nappy rash cream works for us every time. I find it clears DD's nappy rash within the day.

Amolin was my favourite too, I also found my the next nappy change redness was gone, I've used it myself and had very good results with chafing.
