how long is diaper rash supposed to last?

My ds has had a rash (just red and bumpy) for the past week and it's spreading! I've been trying everything; destin, a&d, butt paste, baby powder. It sprang up around the time that we introduced solids, just rice cereal, could it be an allergic reaction, or does this sound normal? and if so, does anyone know anyother remadies for diaper rash?

  • thats not a diaper rash thats a yeast infection get her to the doctor ASAP!!!! no amount of destin or baby powder will get rid of this only medication..my daughter had it and it will only get worse if you dont get the right medication..BTW a diaper rash should last 7 days at the longest before they need to see a doctor
