  • Never heard the cooking oil, will have to try one day. I'd use triple antibiotic ointment and baby powder to keep the baby dry. However, if it continues, take the baby to the dr, it could be a yeast infection (with ours, if desitin doesn't get it in a couple of days, I know it's yeast), or turn into a staph infection. For a yeast infection, we use clotrimazole 1% cream (dr prescribed it once, then I found out that it's OTC). It's by the foot fungus/powder aisle.

  • 15 mo old gets yeast ones all the time and the baby oil doesn't get rid of them..that's dr time..i have so much of that stuff (for the yeast infections) laying around..cornstarch is the same concept as cooking's kinda messy but it works amazingly

  • Butt Paste, here is a link with the information about it. My mom has been using it on my nieces and nephews since it came out and it works wonders.
