My 2mo has this "diaper rash". She's had it for almost 2 weeks now. It doesn't have any bumps or red patches. It jus looks like a big red welt. Kind of like her private area is sunburnt. The weird thing is, it doesn't bother her at all! It doesn't hurt and I'm guessing it doesn't itch because she's always pretty darn happy or sleeping. There's no odor either. Do I don't think it's a yeast infection. I've tried destitin, a&d, butt paste, petroleum jelly, and triple paste. Nothing has helped. I change her all the time too. She has an appointment Monday but its driving me crazy waiting! I feel horrible like I caused it
I just changed her diaper and the redness has seemed to have toned down some. I did notice something weird though. At the edges of it, it seems to be peeling a tiny bit. Just like a sun burn would! I thought maybe she could have gotten burned in the bath? But I've always been careful with the temp and she's never acted as if it was too warm for her. Plus if that was the case shed be burnt in other places too.
After having to cancel her first appointment, we finally got her in today! They said it looks a little yeasty but that they weren't sure. They prescribed her 2 ointments. One is happy butts I think? So I'll go pick those up in the morning and see how that works! Thank you ladies for your advice and help =)
