  • corn starch or i know it sounds crazy but but cream.. it keeps the moister out and helps heal it..

  • You can put a little cornstarch on that area as well. Cornstarch helps dry things out.

  • Keep it dry as much as possible and do not use lotion on that area

  • I agree with pp. Keep it dry and clean! Ask your ped if there are any powders you can use to absorb excess moisture. Good luck.

  • Try not to excessively wipe. That alone can cause irritation. Use baby wipes when he eats. And aside from starch baby powder is also good.
