bad diaper rash that wont go away...

my 18 month old son has a BAD diaper rash ( he had runny poop for 2 days and this is the effect) ....I change him as soon as he is wet or dirty...I wipe good ( even though it hurts him to touch it)...dry it.I have tried diaper rash creames and corn starch and nothing works and it seems to get worse -- our Pedi. wont take us in for it because they already told me to use the cream...

  • 20-minute soak in the tub, pat dry and then let air dry. then put hydrocortizone on it. that IS a light steroid, so you can only do it on and off (no more than 10 days at a time), but our ped recommended that one for diaper rash and it worked WONDERS!
