  • Quick fixes = breast milk and/or cornstarch. Cornstarch will help keep her bottom dry, and them breast milk will help clear up any aggitation.
    Also, nudie-time and sunshine on those biscuts. Though with diarhea that can be difficult.

  • my mother inlaw put Caldesene on my son when his lil hiney was all broken out with rash from diaherrea from teething. It got rid of it in about 2 weeks but was getting better over night. I also use buttpaste and destin together on his hiney. Not sure where to get the Caldesene powder but it is used to treat and prevent diaper rash and help protect irriatated skin. Air hiney out while diaper is off as well. And use wash cloth not wipes right now. :) Good luck!

  • My daughters bottom used to bleed from diaper rash.
    I would wash it with warm water, put a layer of Desitin, then a layer of Vaseline, then baby powder.
    No more redness.

  • I really have good results with alternating Butt Paste(diaper rash paste) and neosporin t keep infection out. I just went through this with my son and teething with diarrhea and his bottom was also bleeding. i took him to the Dr. and that is what she recommended. It worked, but it took overnight to look better: I also let him lay naked for a while, his oler brothers got a kick out of that.LOL Hopt your LO is better soon:)

  • Just a warning that cornstarch contains yeast and can cause a yeast infection if overused.
