I was worried because my intact 3-month-old ds's foreskin was red at the tip (it may have resulted from his penis accidentally being kind of smushed in a sideways position under the Snappi of his cloth dipe : ... we usually use fuzzibunz)

Anyway, I tried Burt's Bees, which seemed to make the skin a bit dry and didn't get rid of all the redness. I love BB ointment for diaper rash but I think the foreskin tip may be a little too sensitive for it (anyone else have experience with this)?

Then I came here and read the recent post written by someone with the same problem. Tried breastmilk as another poster suggested, and poof! Back to normal. Just wanted to let everyone know, might as well try breastmilk first if you're nursing and ds's foreskin tip looks red. It's like a miracle cure!

Thanks for the tip! I will be breastfeeding, so I'll keep that in mind if I ever need it.

Breastmilk also works "wonders" on measles and chickenpox . . .
