  • my daughter has a bad one right now. tell her to let her child be without diaper for like 45 min at a time to air it out. right when they pee or poo change it immediately. dont use wipes... have her rinse his bum off in the bathtub with water and baby soap. wipes will burn and irritate it more. if you need to, use a soft papertowel with water to get poop away. but softly. a woman on here told me to use A&D plus hydrocortizone cream on their butt too.

    my mom told me to take my daughter swimming because the clorine will help kill the bacteria on the butt.

    butt paste desitin powder nothing is working on my daughter right now, so im going to try the hydrocortizone and a+d

    good luck!

  • Make sure when changing the child you use a wipe to wipe off the urine that may be on hes/her skin. Also give a bath at night right before bed so the child is clean and put to bed with a clean diaper. I just use "Desitin Creamy" it helps provide overnight relief. Number one choice by pediatricians and it's hypoallergenic.

  • You can use wipes during the day time changing and at baths during the day and or night is also good to rinse off the pee. Use the wipes with no fragrance.

  • Stop with the diaper wipes and let the child go diaperless only clean with Gentle soap and water let the child air out .......... just monitor it... the rash will go away check what kind of diapers u are using the cheaper brands are really the worse even though you might not be able to afford them or not my 2 children could not wear pampers cause they kept breaking out with rash check also what are you feeding the child I no it is a pain but do it the old fashion way wash cloth but try to keep the diaper off as long as you can and what i used to do was everytime they peed or pooped i would wash them in the tub if nothing happens withins 24 hours consult your doctor I wish you the best of luck oh yea just love em...They grow so fast....

  • What does the rash look like? Is it just red skin? Are there little red bumps? Are there red bumps closer to the perineum? It could be diaper rash, a yeast infection, or eczema. Sometimes it is caused by what she is eating, if she is drinking too many sugary drinks perhaps. I'd cut back on juice (cut it with water if you have to), let her air out for a while, then apply a think lotion like Aquafor and then good barrier cream like A&D. If it's closer to the perineum and is small groups of red bumps then it could be a yeast infection and a doctor should evaluate it.

  • Could it be a yeast infection instead of diaper rash? Some diaper rash ointments will make a yeast infection worse. I would take her to the doctor to get it checked.
