OK, guess our rash.:LOL
We have been battling this for about a week. My 2yob has huge welts between his legs. They look like moon craters. And a couple of them look like they may have infection in them as they are yellow inside. I have tried ointments, anti-bacterial stuff, Mylanta and Caladryl. They are getting better but what is it???
wow that doesnt sound good, I wish I could see a picture(not for a weird reason but because it is really easy for me to diagnose on site, considering I have seen HUNDREDS of butts with rashes in the daycare over the years)
does this sound anything like it?
Impetigo: This type of rash can appear as yellow-brown crusty patches or pus filled pimples or blisters, which is usually accompanied by a lot of surrounding redness. This rash can cover the buttocks, lower abdomen, anus, umbilical cord, and thighs and then spread to other parts of the body. Impetigo is caused by bacteria (streptococci or staphylococci).
