diaper rash

Samara keeps getting a diaper rash. I have been doing cloth, but someone got us disposables and i do have store bought wipes, but they very rarely get used. Like maybe twice a week or something. So i use the cloth diapers with washcloth and water) I made my own laundry detergant, so maybe its that, but the detergant is just a simple recipe (castille soap, borax and washng soda....is that what its called?). I change her often, but most of tge time there is a.little poop. She has been.more fussy lately, not sure if its from the rash or if she does have a food sensitivity. Any help is welcomed!

has she started eting something new?? that may be causing the rash. I used this to cure diaper rash. my very "old school" aunt told me about it. fill your sink with lunkewarm water, add 1 cup viniger, white or apple cider. let baby sit 15 minutes n make sure they dont splash. let baby air dry. pour pure corn startch liberally on baby bottom and in diaper. it alwys worked within a few hours for my DD

 If she has started eating something new, it could be a food sensitivity. Or she could be reacting to something in your detergent, Do your diapers need to be stripped? For a rash Breast milk works well I also used coconut oil on DD.

Is the soap getting them clean enough? I tried homemade detergent and it wasn't getting the diapers clean and they had build up. I had to switch to tide to get them clean.

Sounds like yeast to me. We had it and it's like that, a stubborn rash made worse by cloth. Try putting an antifungal cream (like clotrimazole) onher bum and strip the cloth diapers (I'd suggest hot water and bleach). We got rid oof it in no time like this and no more rash from then on.

I would suggest treating all of your dipes. I did this recently for a yeast rash. Hot wash with detergent and hot wash with bleach. I use a similar recipe, but with laundry soap instead of Castille soap.
Coconut oil is also very good to use on baby's butt.
