Blistering diaper rash

Ok we've tried A&D,Nystatin,frequent diaper changes, a little bit of naked time but it makes his Dad really nervous and have had no luck for two weeks. No new foods and we've been using the same brand of diapers for 8 out of 10 months of his life so no big switches there.

We took him into the Instacare because it was starting to bleed and he just said to let him run naked but it's still blistering.
So what's next?

  • Stop using baby wipes. Use just water and baby shampoo. Also the no diaper is the best thing for it. Put him in his crib or playpen with a towel under him for at least 20 minutes after each change.

  • i would talk to your ped something is not right and you said your changing him frequently. i feel for him poor baby. sounds like he may need a prescription diaper cream. my cousin daughter did this when she was a baby and they had to give her a prescription cream. it may not b diaper but a antibotic salve.

  • Dr. Smiths diaper ointment. It is pricey but it takes so little. Make sure your wipes are alcohol and fragrence free. As much nakkie time as humanly possible.. You may7 need to take scissors to the elastic on the legs of the diapers for a few days to help increase airflow when the diaper is on.

  • get rid of the gunk...what I did was let my baby go diaperless as much as possible. Wash them with WATER when your baby poops and nothing but. Don't use wipes or soap. SO: Water/air dry. Should take care of the problem.

  • Ok, here's what I do and it works every time. Make sure he's CLEAN, DRY and when you do have to use wipes you BLOT. DO NOT WIPE! After baths, make sure he's completely dry. EVERY DIAPER CHANGE, put a THICK layer of desitin or any other heavy duty butt cream on him, then on top of that, put a THICK layer of Vaseline to seal it in. When he has his diaper on the Vaseline will SEAL and will be what rubs off onto his diaper and not the butt cream! It may take up to a week before it heals up, but keep on it at every diaper change. DO NOT let him sit in pee or poop AT ALL. As for diet, if he's having runny poop then feed him bananas so it's not watery and loose. Make sure he's not drinking or eating grapes/grape juice, apples/apple juice, citrus fruit/citrus drinks like OJ. Make sure he's drinking LOTS of water as well! Good luck girly! xo

  • I think I would take him to his regular doctor if this isnt cleared up soon. Ask about yeast infection/thrush.

  • my daughter has only had a rash 1 time n it was bad we use Boudreaux's Butt Paste and aloe baby powder n i would let her air dry and it cleared up!! if it dont clear up then take your child to your normal dr and see if they give you a medicated cream to dry it up!!

  • No diapers or rash cream for as long as you can. put the creme on only with the diaper on. That always works for my dd. Good luck momma
