  • oh honey that is not good!! you need to find out what is going on! ya know? better document this stuff. keep a notebook with dates, times, description of things like this. you might need it. but if he had shit in the undies i would say the rash is basically a diaper rash. if you have any diaper rash ointment i would use that, after cleaning and drying the affected area.

  • Desitin for the rash.
    For the cold, I used a medicine call Sinupret for my daughter, its natural and works great for cough stuffy and runny nose.

    Or for congestion, Mucinex for kids...That one is fantastic.

  • the rash I would clean his butt well and put some diaper cream on it. as fo rthe depends on the type as the pp said. Good luck. Sounds like you need to tell the father he needs to be wiping the childs butt after a BM!

  • Aw poor little guy. You definitely need to address this with the other parent there is no excuse for it. Diaper rash cream should clear that right up for him. Ow..poor hiney.

  • We love Pinxalve pronounced Pink Salve for rashes. It is even great for sun burn. As for the cold force fluids.
