  • Aquaphor or Lotrimin AF. If it is blistered then take her to the doctor, it may be a different kind of infection and she may need Nystatin.

  • However, although steroids are commonly prescribed to treat eczema, eczema is not very common in the diaper area, so it is likely something else causing his rash. Eczema more typically causes a red, itchy rash on a child's cheeks, arms, and legs. Still, if you really think that it is eczema, you can ask your doctor if you can use a mild potency steroid, like those sold over-the-counter, for a few days.However, although steroids are commonly prescribed to treat eczema, eczema is not very common in the diaper area, so it is likely something else causing his rash.

  • I agree with pp. All 3 of my kids have eczema and never on the bum.

  • Use shea butter & a beeswax lotion bar. Petroleum based products only mask the problem.
