Update 3/28 Picture***** I need some serious help for this rash
Hey ladies! Just an update. The a&d ointment worked wonders!!!! The rash was almost completely gone. Until today.... Ugh ugh ugh..... It showed up full blast again after going just 12 hours without the prescription cream. When I picked her up from day school they told me how red it was. It also had bumps that were raised all over the top part. Her bottom looked fine. Our doctor told me the reason it looked like this picture was because something in her poop (diarrhea) was literally burning her bottom. Since that went away she hasn't had an issue with her bottom.
As soon as I got home I called her doc and he called in more of the prescription cream since I was almost out. I had a small amount to put on it so I did that and then put the a&d ointment over it. She laid down for her nap. When she woke up it looked a lot better. Not as red and the bumps were settling down if that makes sense. I am just so sick of dealing with this crap. Blah.
It all started almost SIX WEEKS ago. Yes it's been that long. For the first week I tried the normal creams and when that didn't work I took her to the dr. We determine yeast infection and got nystatin. We tried that for 2 weeks and while it did seem to help, it would never clear it. Let me also say that for the past 5 weeks it has been nothing like this. Only about 20% of this. It would be almost gone and then come back a little more and a little worse than past time. We tried hydrocortisone cream as the dr suggested and nothing.
Back to the doctor we went. We got a prescription for nystatin and triamcinolone cream mix. Again it would never fully go away. Well she got sick last Saturday and had lots of vomit and diarrhea. My entire family got it Monday. We are all recovering but she still has diarrhea. Her but has now looked like this for 6 days. It's actually getting a little worse.
We have her in undies except at nap and bed time. I am using the cream 3 times a day as told and using desitin like crazy. We are all so tired of dealing with this and seeing her in pain. I've put in another call to we doctor but I'm turning to anyone who will listen at this point. Something has got to make this go away. Any thoughts?
