my one year old just got his FIRST diaper rash and it is AWFUL! Our naturopath last week thought it was due to my yeast infection and had us treat it with an apple cider vinegar wash....it seemed to sort of get better but we were not consistent and it got worse again...now even using the wash for a full day and a half it got progressively worse and started BLEEDING! My husband decided to give in and use the A&D ointment with Zinc oxide....it seems to sort of be getting better...sort of ? But I have a few questions on my mind....
first....where did this come from? Maybe it was due to my yeast issues (he still breastfeeds)
It can't be from a new food because we haven't introduced anything new in almost a month! Though his bowel movements over the last couple of weeks have been highly potent....almost smells like vomit to me...of course I'm feeling a little sensitive too (just found out I'm expecting again)....so maybe there's a change in the milk?
And we use BG cloth diapers so I just temporarily switched to disposables to use with the A&D since I don't have liners to put in the BGs to protect them.
Any thoughts on what could cause a sudden rash and thoughts on how to treat it????
