 My sister's son is sn and 6 years old.  He has a bad diaper rash that she can't get rid of.  At first she did desitin and that didn't help, so then she figured it was a yeast so she used nystatin and that didn't help at all.  I told her to try tto and olive oil because he started getting pimples so she thought it was infected.  That helped some but it still won't go away. Help?!

I make my own balms, but you could try coconut oil or lanolin(the kind used for breast feeding.

Maybe put bag balm on it and then put caldesene powder over it. That always helps my son.

What kind of diapers is he in?
If they're cloth and he has a yeast infection, there's some high maintenance care she's gotta go through to kill the yeast from the cloth.
If they're disposables, she might switch brands.
Meanwhile I'd keep up with the oo and tto, and look at his diet as well.

A&D ointment coats really well. It's helpful if used after every diaper change.

Has she tried beadreau's butt paste? Its at Walmart or Walgreens. My dd had a rash that desitin wouldn't touch and it started bleeding so the doc told me to get that and, "put it on like I mean it" lol, which I took as smother the area. It was insanely better the next day.

 The Goodnights diapers.  He's too big for any other diapers so she can't switch brands and she can't do cloth.  I did recommend the cotton trainers for during the day because he never goes in his diaper at school so he never gets changed.  That way during the day he's getting more air flow down there.
