my 3 week old has 2 chaffed spots on either side of his leg, right on his diaper line (like where the leg meets the groin area). I've put Vaseline on it but I'm not sure what's else to do or try to get it to heal other than letting him lay on a towel and air out. Any suggestions?

  • any kind of butt paste with any clear ointment( a&d) on top of it....or if you have tea tree oil that works the best

  • I wouldn't put Vaseline on it, that's not gonna do any healing, that just protects the area from getting moisture to it. I would put some desitin on it and powder the area too!
