  • make sure he doesnt have a baby yeast infection, it can happen with babies who have diarrhea. ifit doesnt go away ask your dr, he can give you special cream

  • My daughter had a bad diaper rash and the doc had us mix desitin and malox. It made a thick coat so the poo wouldn't actually touch her bottom.

  • My DD has had a bad one the last few days really raw with sores, and i've tried everything. Last night I put some A & D Ointment then I covered it with some Moisturel therapeutic lotion and then throughout the day I would just use the moisturel lotion and it looks alot better tonight.

  • My son had the same thing. If it lasts longer than a week, take him to the doctor. In order to neutralize his urine and stool, feed him yogurt. The live culture will work wonders. If it's a yeast infection, you'll see a difference over night. Let his bottom breath! Give him a bath and let him run around bottomless for as long as possible.

  • Balmex is terrific. When you wipe them, not all of the Balmex cream wipes off. It works to protect the baby's skins and also as clears up the diaper rash.

  • yep, sounds like yeast. get some yeast medicine at walmart, rub a thin layer of the med on his butt, do that about 3 times a day. you will see improvement the next day. good luck!

  • Colloidal silver. From a health food store. Dab it on with a cotton ball. It's the ONLY thing that ever took care of diaper rash in my kids.

  • Arbonne baby rash! It not only works great for their rashes--my son had a horrible one, it cured it over night!--but it also works for the rash I get between my boobs sometimes!
