Diaper rash/wipe allergy...help please?

DD has never had a real diaper rash, only the occasional red bump or two and they have never been itchy or sore and so now that I find myself with a DD with sore, itchy, oozing red bumps on her labia I have no idea what to do. I am going to take her to the doctor but they can't fit me in until Friday so I was trying to see if you ladies had any remedies I could use until then. I'm not absolutely sure what caused it but I think she may have had a reaction to her wipes-I usually get fragrance-free but we had to get lightly scented because they were out of fragrance-free, and I think she broke out from them. I've stopped using them as of two days ago but the rash just keeps getting worse. She's 26 months old and I've never had to treat a diaper rash before. I've been putting Aquaphor and Desitin on her but she needs something else. Any suggestions? Thanks!

Update 4/4/12 The doctor found room in her schedule to see DD today instead of tomorrow so we'll be getting a script sooner than expected! :)

Coconut oil. It will work and its anti bacterial. Also let her go diaper free as much as you can. I'd start using wash cloths and water as wipes.

Sounds like a yeast infection to me (very common in little girls). The doctor will most likely prescribe u Nyastatin cream but our doc has always recommended Lotrimin (the over the counter athletes foot cream) applied externally 2x per day. Also have you been airing it out at all? Let her go diaper free for awhile first and see if that helps.

Thank you! Where do I get the oil- do they sell it in pharmacies?

It may very well be a yeast infection, now that the skin is broken. I haven't let her air it out-we have carpet everywhere and she'd be peeing and pooping all over my house. I could possibly gate her in the kitchen for a half hour or so, though. Thanks :)

You'll find it in either the pharmacy section or the baking/cooking aisle.

Coconut oil. If it yeast it will even clear that up. If you think it was the wipes i wouldn't ise them anymore. Hope it gets better soon.

Thank you! And I have already tossed out the wipes, they were useless.
