  • Wipe his bottom with a soft warm (wet)wash cloth, not baby wipes. They have so much stuff in them that it can irritate his skin when its so broken out already. Then let him air dry. He'd probably enoy it anyway, just have an extra burp cloth/wash cloth to put over him for pee pee accidents... they do Once he's dry put on some desitin, like the PP said or the Beaudreaxs butt paste, that is good stuff too. Good luck and I hope he feels better.

  • desitin is evil. my son hates it. he's 13w and has been fighting a yeast rash fot 12w. if there are sores, see doc. if not, naked time helps

  • Take olive oil and put it on the area and then a diaper rash cream (doesn't matter which one). Trust me, it a matter of hours it will be gone!

  • ditch the wipes and use a washcloth and warm water.
