Severe Diaper Rash

we must have given alyssa something that is too acidic or something because when she first pooped today, it immediately caused a severe rash. Parts of it started bleeding.  I am about to go out and get A&D Ointment to put on her instead of  rash cream. We immediately know when she's pooped everytime today because she starts crying in pain. Every change has hurt her so much that she starts shaking and seems to go into some shock-like state after we get a new diaper on, but after a few minutes she gets back to normal.

i am open to options that will get her to immediately start feeling better and will help clear up the rash. i just want my poor baby to feel better.

Breastmilk will clear it up the fastest. Otherwise call her pedi as soon as the office opens.

Use just water on a soft rag & water when you change her. Leave her to air dry if possible. Vaseline makes a good barrier & I never used corn starch but heard it works great too. Dd's pediatrician said to never use Desitin on her dashes.

Destin with A&D ointment on top. No diaper until it clears up and do not use wipes on her. Give her a warm oatmeal bath.

 This was always my son's reaction to OJ. I always stuck to fragrant free, color free, A&D ointments.

Use a blow dryer on cool to blow dry the area and soft wash clothes in warm water. The kind you bathe her with and cornstarch. The dryer will make sure she's not irritated and the cornstarch will absorbe any extra moisture.

We went through this when DD got ahold of apples (she's allergic to them) so along with the reaction she had the most awful diaper rash. It was bleeding too. I tried OTC creams with nystatin and what helped her was extra strength desitin plus nystatin mixed together. After two changes it was better.
