Diaper Rash


Are there any creams to help with a really bad diaper rash. My son is 13 months and has a red butt that is sore to the point he's screaming bloody murder if anything touches it. He also has been pooping out what looks like puke. Redish orange with almost skin thingys. I used destin and baby powder, aloe to try help. Hes changed every hour. And has a warm bath too but nothing has help he wants to sleep standing up with his head on my shoulder. If I try to lay him down on his stomach he's screaming. I'm just out of ideas...

    Using a mild soap like aquaphor and soft cloth towels for changes help ease the pain. A little Vaseline also worked wonders.

    It may be a yeast or fungal infection. Please get it checked and the prescription medication helps clear it right up.

    Cornstarch in the pamper after a warm bath, and give infant Tylenol to aid with pain. Destin extra strength (heavy amount if that bad)helped mine a lot but if its not working try aquaphor

    Please take that baby to a doctor if you haven’t already. ASAP.

    Put some unfiltered apple cider vinegar in his bath. Just a tablespoon. ACV is a natural anti-bacterial/anti-fungal so it will help clear it up and prevent it in the future

    I’m sure you already spoke to the pediatrician regarding the diarrhea... first get a handle on that and ensure his tummy is soothed. Second, I know it sounds crazy but nipple cream has been my magical ointment for any cut, scrape, rash, irritation- you name it! If it’s good for my nipples it’s pretty much good for anything! Haha. Best of luck- hope your baby feels better and hope you have some peace of mind real soon. ❤️

    It sounds like it could yeast...either take him to the dr or try an OTC fungal cream. Also a good probiotic to help balance him out so it doesn’t keep coming back. For regular non fungal rashes, my go-to is triple paste.

    We do baby aquaphor and powder and switch back and forth every change every hour! Poor baby!

    Stop using baby powder, it’s terrible for diaper rash. Do Sitz baths twice per day and let him air dry for a while. Apply a thick cream of choice to create a barrier and protect the skin. Change him often. Give a BRAT style diet, Banana, Rice, Applesauce, Toast, to bind up the poop and avoid fruits that start with P, pear, peach, prunes, they loosen poop. Go see a pediatrician to see exactly what type of rash it is, and maybe give him some Tylenol to help with the pain. Good luck.

    Nystatin fungal cream would help but you need a prescription. I suggest you see a pediatrician

    Ok so I may just be dumb but I just found this out a few months ago... my first born never had horrible diaper rashes, but our second born has off and on had the worst! We talked to our pediatrician about it. And Air is for sure the best thing. We would clean him really good than let him air out as much as possible throughout the day. But he also said (which made me feel dumb 🤦🏻‍♀️) that after you clean them, dry them completely before putting on the diaper cream. If he is still wet or sores oozing than the diaper cream on top of it will trap all the moisture in and make it worse. But if they dry completely than you put the cream on it’ll keep out all the moisture from the next pee or poo. Completely makes sense but I just never knew that. And my son had a poo like that and I realized it was from the fruit I gave him. The weird texture part was the skin of the fruit. He just couldn’t digest it very well.

    It is 100% what he is eating what is causing it. He could be intolerant to the formula you are giving him and when excreted, besides diarrhea, it also causes contact dermatitis (rash) on his bum. Please keep a very bland diet - their digestive tracts are very sensitive to anything processed
