My daughter has a diaper rash. It looks like little red blisters and ive tried diaper rash ointment, corn starch, corn starch baby powder...etc. I don't know what else to try. It doesn't seem to be getting better. Any ideas or suggestions would be appreciated.
ZInc Oxide. Can find it at a pharmacy. Most diaper creams have it as an ingredient but they also have a ton of other ingredients that would irritate the rash. If you are using cloth diapers, it can make the diaper not wick away, if used too much. My LO had a couple rashes in his diaper time and I tried to leave him diaperless while he had a rash, helps.
I hope your LO feels better soon.
My son was actually reacting to the zinc oxide in creams. The doctor gave us something that worked wonders. I don't remember what it was though.

could it be yeast? the fact that you said they look like blisters and that it's spreading makes me think yeast infection. you could try yeast cream or "triple paste", which has anti fungal properties in it.

The best way to treat a bad diaper rash - simple lukewarm strongly brewed black tea.
Just frequently dab on the area in question and leave exposed to air as much as possible.
If nothing helped, this did.
