DS's sitter called me this morning to ask if I'd noticed that DS's bum was <i>very</i> red. (I hadn't as he pottied first thing in the morning and I diapered him in a bit of a rush.) Now, we'd both normally chalk it up to a diaper rash, except yesterday was the first day DS pottied all day long (<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/joy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="joy">), so he was never in a wet or poopy diaper at all. Its an even red with no bumps or anything, so we both thought it could be a reaction to something he ate, but neither of us could think of anything he ate that was new.<br><br>
I'm going to make sure DS gets as much bare bum time tomorrow to try to heal it, but does anyone have any idea what else might have caused it? I'm really stumped!

My daughter had this and it turned out to be a mild fungal infection. A couple of days of anti-fungal cream has pretty much cleared it. How she got it I do not know as she's changed very frequently.<br><br>
If it doesn't improve in a couple of days with your usual nappy rash treatment then I'd seek medical advice.

Thanks for the reply. Happily, itseems to be healing well, I was just hoping to figure out the cause so we could avoid a recurrance! Ah well, maybe it's just a question I'll never find out the answer to! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/eyesroll.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="roll">
