My daughter is 15 months now, and has had a diaper rash of varying degrees for at least 2 months.
We use disposables, her diet consists of mostly fruit, juice, milk, pastas, corn and peas and a little meat.
We recently switched from cheap generic diapers to Pampers Baby Dry, and that seemed to help for a few days, but then I gave her a bath and it flared up again and hasn't gone back down.
Baths don't seem to help at all actually, only make it worse. (We don't use normal soap in her bath, we use Johnsons Baby soap.)
We've seen the ped at least three times for this. The first time he prescribed Niasatin, since he thought it was a yeast infection. He didn't swab or anything, just took one quick look and wrote a prescription.
The second time he brushed my questions off and the third time he suggested I keep using the prescription and to use Vasaline in between doses.
I stopped doing this long ago, it doesn't work.

My oldest has dry skin and the only wipes that ddidn't dry out her skin and give her a constant rash was Lansinoh wipes, they also have a cream. The two together was a heaven sent for my oldest. I found them at target. They have lanolin in them, a very good skin protectant and moisturizer. My youngest has sensitive skin and gets rash if I don't changed her poopy diapers quickly (can't wait for potty training in 2 weeks) I found that Butt Paste works best on her rashes, it still takes a few days to cure a bad rash but there is improvement after one application. There is a ton of Zinc in it, so it is a really good protectant. A&D ointment might also work my mother swears by it, didn't help mine though. Hope that helps.
