What to do about scars caused by diaper rash?

My twins get diaper rash really bad and i have cream for that, that works but one of them has a few scars on his poor baby butt so is there a way to get rid of those or will they fade eventually, or is he stuck with them for life.

  • well they are too young for hydroquinone, you could try cocoa butter , vitamin E oil, or bio oil.

  • Wait it out and see if it goes away after a couple of years. If they are constantly getting a diaper rash and they are getting scars from it and your trying to eliminate the scars then nothing good will come of it considering the rash keeps coming back. Try switching diapers, wipes, anything.

  • My son was allergic to the wipes. I made wipes with baby oil and Bounty towels, cut in half. Not only did rash clear up, but they were much cheaper and only took a few minutes to make. Any scarring should clear up on its own if the cause is corrected.

  • Have you tried different brands of diapers to eliminate the rash? Or / and warm water washcloths instead of wipes?

  • Try talking to your doctor about using either Dermatix Ultra, Kelo-Cote, Scar Zone, bio Skin Repair, maybe cordozone, neosporin, or Bio-OIl. But remember to always talk to your doctor befor using any kind of over the coiunter meds especially if for yoiur baby :) I hope the little guy gets better soon :)
