This is his first real diaper rash. I think it was brought on by me introducing more acid foods- pureed peaches, apricots and apples. Maybe also because he's teething.
Desitin isn't working. Seeing the redness on his little boy parts really worries me. Could this cause real damage? What is the best way of treating this type of rash?
Do you use cloth or disposables? I use cloth and I notice if I have rashiness using a breathable cover...like wool...works wonders too.
BTW the rash and it's distribution that you described above was exactly like my son's.
Oh, i also rinsed his crotch with water after wet diapers; washed with a bit of soap after a dirty diaper --> then let him air dry completely before putting anything on.
I am wondering if it is A) teething related B) yeast C) something in my diet.
He is exclusively BF and we just started some CD. . .although still in sposies at night. When in CD I change them as soon as he pees/poos, I don't think they are causing the rash?
What is the usual cause of diaper rash?
I am trying some air time and a bath today and see if that helps.
