  • Babies and toddlers often get nasty nasty yeast infections on thier butts and also sores from their diapers rubbing.

    Take him to the DR asap to get some medicated cream to treat it and if possible try switching to cloth for a while.

  • It sounds like there might be a food allergy at work, unless this is just a recent thing and he has a stomach bug.

    If the diaper rash is on-going I would recommend you switch to cloth and start making your own wipes.

  • My son had the same thing every time he was on antibiotics. Yeast infection cream did the trick. :)

  • If he has puss filled blisters on his booty I would take him to the doctors. That's a really bad case there, you might need some type of antibiotic ointment. Try to keep him as dry as possible, maybe even try to leave the diaper off for a little while. Maybe don't even use wipes, but a damp washcloth and make sure to dry him completely before putting another diaper on. My daughter had/has really sensitive skin, I had to this a lot when she was in diapers (she never got the puss filled blisters though).
