could it be diaper rash?? (don't open if your easily offended) *UPDATE IN RED**UPDATE AGAIN IN BLUE*

 my baby boys balls are all red, started a little pink this morning i didn't have time to put cream on it this morning as i was rushing out the door and after i got home changed him (he was with his aunt all morning and she probably didn't put any on either) and now his balls are all red and so is his but crack which is usually where his diaper rash starts. but i've never seen diaper rash on a baby's balls. and i've recently switched from pampers to the cheep diapers in the green packaging i'm not sure the brand name all i knew is that i had to get diapers and formula with $20 and those were $3 and pampers were $8. their a generic but i thought he'd be fine since i'd used that brand of wipes and were more than half way through a pack of 32 and it's just starting... if it gets worse i'll post pictures.

so my MIL bought a pack of luvs for him this morning as i have no money, i imedately changed him into a luvs, i wiped him off completely with a wipe (we put vasoline on him at night becasue he sleeps al night and it helps prevent diaper rash) put on a luvs diaper and put desitine all over his area down there. i haven't changed him since then but i'm going to keep cream on him. i gave him a cool bath last night and let him soak until he peed in the water then i took him out and rinsed him off and let him air dry with a towel wraped around him incase he peed. hopefully it gets better! wish me luck.

so he's been wearing luvs for two days with frequent changing and desitine which is wiped completely off and re applied at each changing and it's clearing up. i knew it was the diapers, my uncle bought us a box of like 92 wipes that we've been using for a little more than two months so i knew it wasn't that. stupid cheap diapers. i'm never buying off brand diapers again.

When my babies were little they couldn't use certain diapers. Like white cloud, pampers, luv's.. Pretty much anything except huggies. The pampers and white cloud were the worst.  I would get some desiten or butt paste.. Or you could use corn starch.. Also I would let him air out.  Let him go without a diaper for a lil while. That helped us out the most. Good luck!!!!

 that's what i was thinking but i've used huggies pampers luvs adn meijer brand and switching doesn't bother him one bit. maybe it's just this one brand though.

When my daughter was younger we tried to switch to the generic diapers and she got a rash so bad that we ended having to go to the dr. She ended having to get some medicated cream to clear it up. When we switched back to the previous brand it never came back....

Good Luck.

How old is he? My son wore huggies up til he turned 1 all of a sudden he got the same exact rash your talking about! Never before that has he had a rash! I switched to pampers for a year then he was potty trained!
