  • Let her run around naked for awhile. The air will help. Have you changed diapers recently? My son broke out bad with Luvs.

  • Yep....Bag Balm. It's available in most large grocery stores and many drug stores, use liberally and the rash and blisters will be gone in no time..

  • like bugfin said let her be a naked baby for awhile and even though it hurts make sure to clean it well

  • If it has red dots in the rash it might have yeast infection too.
    I have heard butt paste is great. I used that gel like diaper cream.

  • My oldest was allergic to vaseline, and I didn't know it until my doctor told me to use it on him, and his skin flared up so much worse. The one thing that really helped my sons' sensitive skin was Johnson & Johnson medicated talc-free powder. It calmed everything down in a few days. Once it was calmed down, I would sometimes use that Butt Paste on it (the natural one, not the original one). The powder was the real lifesaver though.

  • Another suggestion is to use Mylanta or generic there of to help calm and soothe the skin. When it is dry then add the diaper cream.

  • let him run around diaper free for a bit! then coat reaally heavy with Desitin night time...It has a drying agent in it that clears my kids up in a day or so and they have really sensitive skin and I even use it if they blister on onther parts of their bodies! I agree with the first poster LuVS diapers are the worst if you have them throw them out!
