My son is 4 days old. He was circumcised hours after birth and the doctor wants me to keep vasoline on a gauze pad on it for about 10 days and change the dressing every diaper change. I've been doing that but I haven't been using anything else because I was afraid to. 2 days ago he started looking red on his bottom so I started using a diaper cream that seems to be making it worse. His buttocks are so raw that they're bleeding. Does anyone know of anything that I can use on the diaper rash that won't affect his healing penis?Answer Question

Bring him to the Pediatrician and let them take a look ASAP. He should be seen by one any day now anyway. Have you made an appointment? Write down a list of questions that you want to ask about other things too so you don't forget when you are there. That's what I did. But see a Pediatrician soon.
