looks like a diaper rash

The inside of my 2 yr old daughter's vaginal lips are bright red- She wears pull-ups at night but uses the potty during the day. I don't have any diaper rash ointment laying around- What can I do?

  • I am sure your little one has a yeast infection...Very common...
    corn starch will help before you place a new diaper on...
    Use Silver shield gel and then corn starch...

    *** I have some supplements that can help / from Natures' Sunshine;
    all natural and safe...

    Silver shield gel- great to have around for the whole family - great for diaper rash and yeast:

    Black Ointment - Another MUST to have around the house...
    For cuts, skinned knees, bug bites.... just about any minor injury ( for humans and pets, too)

  • Cornstarch is a good natural diapering powder. Just make sure to dry her skin well before putting anything on her. I keep a box of kleenex on the changing table to use after the wipes.

  • VASILINE is AWSOME. It seems to take the 'sting' out and helps with the rubbing of the pull-ups. Also, if you have some Monostate it will work as well.

  • I don't know if it would help but I had to make sure my daughter took a bath every night, but careful with the soap. We just used Johnsons and Johnsons until she was about 5 because she was very sensitive. I would sometimes put a little vinegar in with her bath water (without soap) per her pediatricians advice and it seemed to clear up any vaginal irritations she would get. Good Luck.

  • I agree with the cornstarch, keeping it dry and you can use the vaseline too.
