  • Maybe her thighs are rubbing together & a little powder will help.

  • So, to clarify, you have taken your child to the Emergency Room because of something on your child's thighs.
    They, trained medical professionals have told you the child has a burn.
    Not a heat rash or simple irritation related to everyday activity but an actual burn and you think it is in her best interest to ignore that diagnosis and ask the CM community for a diagnosis?

  • So, ER just released the child back to your care without an actual diagnosis other than "something that looks similar to an unknown burn, with unknown origin?" Sorry, so not buying it.....

  • Oh, and I am guessing it's an issue of your child being left in wet diapers and/or clothing. Urine can cause burns to the skin if left without being cleaned up....

  • If its a rash on the top of her thighs its either her legs rubbing together, a rash from a very wet diaper or from to tight of clothes rubbing on her legs.
