Ok, so dd has something called Jaqueman's dermatitis. Started out like a normal diaper rash, it was getting bad so we went to the doctor who gave her a steroid/cortisone cream combo. 2 weeks later, still bad and then she had bleeding areas on her labia so I went to the walkin clinic. The doctor there tells me it's from her cloth diapers (yeah, right) and gives me a heavy duty cortisone cream.
My instincts told me not to use it, but she was so itchy I did anyway. Now, 10 days later she has 4 fairly large ulcers on her labia. Family doctor got her into see a dermatoligist yesterday when she saw it.
Dermatologist took one look and says it's this Jaquemans' Dermatitis and says it's caused by the cortisone cream (and was probably aggravated by the 36 hours she spent in sposies while I stripped her cloth just in case)
She tells me throw out all the prescription creams and get some Ihle's Paste. I got it home and it seems it's just zinc oxide cream (although it was $6.99 for a huge tub and I've been paying $10.99 for 1/8th the size)
Anyone use this stuff?? Anyone seen this Jaqueman's dermatitis??
