Oh Diaper Rash

So Kinzey is sitting in her playpen right now, naked, because her but is fire alarm red. I just don't understand how I can put her down perfectly clear and when she wakes up have blisters all over her little booty?

We've tried several different types of creams and ointments such as:

  • Desitin; Original and Creamy
  • Boudreaux's butt paste
  • A+D; Original and Cream (with Aloe)
  • Vaseline
  • Neosporin
  • Oatmeal
  • Oatmeal baths
  • Aveno cream
  • Baby powder
  • Bathing several times in a day
  • Combination of several of the above treatments
Tonight, besides letting her have it all hang out, I'm trying olive oil. Supposedly, it's the "number one treatment" according to this website that also calls it a "nappy rash." Hopefully something works or we're going to the doctor. My mom said I had really sensitive skin as a baby, so Kinzey will too. We use hypoallergenic diapers, wipes, free and clear detergent and the same baby shampoo and wash since she was born. It's possibly something in her diet, but no telling what since she consumes everything in her site. Add this on top of our sinus infection's and it's been an awesome couple of days. If you have any suggestions or words of encouragement let me know!

I know I'm a month late with this comment- but just in case your still having the problem. Paw Paw ointment is great for healing and you can also use it as a barrier to prevent nappy rash if your child is prone to nappy rash.
Hope this helps. Good luck.
