Help! Worst diaper rash ever :(

My daughter has such a bad diaper rash. Been going on like 3 weeks now. First happened cause she cut 3 molars. I've been using water wipes. Desatin. Butt paste. A and d. I've left her diaper off to air it out. Let her sleep naked with some medicine on it. I just cant get ontop of it... it seems to have calmed down but she has a a couple parts that look so bad and 1 part is bleeding. I feel so bad for her and I dont know what to do...

    My baby had blisters on her butt. I ended up changing wipes to babyganics (target & amazon carry them). I used triple paste and then baby powder. I tried everyone else suggestions (buttpaste, cornstarch, be naked) nothing worked. When changing diaper do not wipe off all the desitin just go over it with a wipe. If you take it all off you are stripping her skin. Unless she has pooped, then take it all off and redo. Reapply a thick layer of triplepaste after her bum is dry you can pat it with a towel or blow on it. Then put powder on. If you have the ability to sit outside naked that should help. But try these: Cloth diaper (alva baby) Triple paste Burts Bees Dusting powder Babyganics wipes I also like babyganics disposable diapers. Worked like a charm and within 3 days her rash was gone and never came back. Some wipes even if water wipes have chemicals to make the paper material which my baby was sensitive to. Good Luck Momma!

    Triple Paste made my son’s diaper rash worse! I use A&D after making sure his skin is all dry.

    Maybe it’s time to call your pediatrician? It could be a bacteria

    Double check with your pediatrician first that it’s not a yeast infection. If not, triple paste is your best choice. We went with butt paste forever but triple paste has been our new thing and it works wonders!!! Always make sure the bum is totally dry before you apply:)

    You should ask your doctor about sparrow but cream my son had a rash that was so bad just to remove his diaper made him scream and was givin this prescription and his rash was gone in two days....most insurances don't cover it but is it worth spending the money on

    Each baby’s skin is slightly different but this always worked with my kids; - no baby wipes. Wipe her with cotton balls & warm water - make sure she is fully dry before doing anything else - once fully dry there’s a type of desitin thats extra strong, you can try that You should see results after doing this for 2 days. If you don’t then you might need medicated cream for her so go to your doctor

    We do medicated baby powder sealed in with A&D or Vaseline or even a butt paste. Not sure how it works but it is what my mom did with my siblings and I and she still recommends it to everyone.

    We started letting her run naked and sleep in just a onesie with cream on and its cleared up so much! I guess it just needed to breath

    After I've tried everything (store bought/prescribed in the book & still nothing worked), my parents helped me with my daughters 1st diaper rash. They told me to go brown some flour on the stove and let it sit until it cools down..then apply it on baby like baby powder...BEST thing in the world swear to God! (Minus the burnt flour smell) it literally worked sooo fast the next day the rash looked sooo much better by day #2 it was completly gone! Saved me money and time. I was sooo relieved because she had such a terrible rash 😫💗💕

    My daughter would get blistery diaper rashes all the time. What worked for her was a thin layer of aquaphor, Caldescene powder and a layer of aquaphor on top. It created a very thick paste. I started using the caldescene with every change and it cut down on her rashes big time

    Aquaphor Baby is amazing! I’ve used that with a little cornstarch based powder on my twins when they have diaper rash. I see a difference from morning until the first diaper (about two hours). When they have a diaper rash, I change their diaper every two hours (or sooner when it’s more than pee) or so to make sure their not “sitting in it” too long. We’ve had to use Marathon second skin once but only when our doctor recommended it.

    Sounds like a yeast rash. You can get some over the counter cream for for fungal infections (like lotramin or something similar - Nystatin and terbenafine are what I've used before). Use 3x a day. I like triple paste for regular diaper creams. Just remember that most diaper creams are barrier creams so it must be applied to a dry bottom to be effective, otherwise you'll be sealing in moisture. Use the antifungal creams. If it's not a yeast rash it won't do any harm, but you'll know in a day or two if it's making a difference. If the rash is from diahreaa it might be worth the expense of medicated cream to neutralize the pH of the stool. Good luck!
