DD, 14 months, has the stomach flu. It is mostly diarrhea, and now she has developed blisters all over her buttox and vaginal area. I've been using a baking soda paste, and my girl friend says to switch to just dumping corn starch on it. I already use cloth diapers, and cannot use A&D or Desitin. What have you used on your LOs when they had these?

Flander's Buttocks Ointment (works wonders). Also, don't use the wipes ( I see Froggy told you this too! :D) Also, if you can, put her in the tub with baking soda in the water and it will sooth the irritation. My DS (16 months) had this a few weeks ago, it really blistered his bottom! Even his testicles had blisters! The above worked for us. Oh, and when you change her, before you apply the ointment let the skin dry (advice from nurse). I hope your LO is feeling better soon!
