Diaper Rash symtom of diaper rash???

I'm not a new mom by anymeans..i have a 5 year old a 25 month old and a 14 months old...my problem is with the baby...when i say diaper rash i mean like the inside of his thighs....his butt, his testicles...and his penis it self...we have changed diapers, detergent, tried different medications including prescriptions.
He's miserable. He's starting to chew his fingers and drool a little more...but this is 10 times worse than what my other son's had with teething rashes

  • Bordeaux's Butt Paste, baths everyday, towel pat dry and completely air dry. Or powder in the diaper. Just things that work for me.

  • Desitin Creamy! I doesn't have the medicinal smell of Desitin, and is a LOT easier to apply, and thickly, than the regular stuff.

  • I used Beudreauxs Butt Paste, it was the best stuff. Expensive, but good.

  • Desitin is great but Butt Paste (Beudreaux) is wonderful! Especially for any rashes that are difficult to clear up! It's really worth the money because your child will be more comfortable and heal more quickly!
