What can you put on a baby's neck if they have a rash?

My sisters 5wk old has a rash on his neck. He's gotten pretty chubby these past couple weeks and the rolls are keeping in all the moisture. Any suggestions on what to do about the rash?

  • Cornstarch. Dry it out and avoid putting much on it.

  • fyi, cornstarch and other powders shouldn't be used anywhere near a baby's face. They can breath in the powder which is NOT good for their lungs.

    just tell her to try to keep it dry. If it turns into a yeast rash she can get a cream for it, but the doctor would have to prescribe it.
