what can i do about this nasty chafing in between my sons thighs? The poor guy is walking like he got off a horse! : (

He got it one day when he was at "school" and they were playing in the water then his diaper got big and he got the nasty chafing. We used the cortaid stuff which mostly helped and it was almost gone yesterday morning but then wham! It is back and looks so painful! boo.

  • try this stuff called paladin... My local stores have it, it is found in the pharmacy section...if you can't find it ask the pharmacist.

    Here is a web-link about the product:

  • Paladine is what the above poster suggested. I had to ask for it from the pharmacy b/c it is behind their counter. Or you could ask the pharmacist what other things he suggest also.

  • Perhaps you could even try just putting baby powder on his thighs.
