Help! My daughter has a pimple/boil...

on her leg where the edge of her diaper sits. It's pretty big, red, hard and has a white head. But not oozing. I don't know what it is and what to put on it. It seems painful, because she tries not to sit on it. I've been using Desinide cream she got for another rash but it's not helping. Help...

  • No, I don't think diaper cream is going to help with it.
    I would put a warm wash cloth on it several times/day and see if will open... after it opens put on bacitracin.
    If it gets worse or she runs a fever she need to be seen by her pediatrician
