what does the rash look like? is it all over red, like a burn? or is it open sores?

whenever catie has open sores, I mix some neosporin in with the desitin - about half and half. and really smear it on thick.

also give him a lot of air time, and sometimes baths with baking soda help the parts that are that red "burned" looking irritation.

Neosporin is antibacterial cream. That will just destroy the skin flora. I would not use it nor the desitin.

Use your breast milk if you have some. Lots, all day long.
Or calendula cream from the health food store. There are many good products in the hfs.

I agree with lots of air time.

And instead of the baby wipes, use a paper towel with warm water.

You really believe the Vita C caused it? Could be. I am not saying you are wrong. I am curious.
