Daughter's Stubborn Rash

My daughter has a stubborn rash on her bottom. It is on her cheeks and a little on the back of her upper thighs. We started putting Maalox/Aquafor goop on it, because it has helped in the past. It didn't so we started putting the steroid on it that the doctor had given us and said we could use for similar irritations. That didn't help so we took her in and were told to continue what we were doing. So we did and 10 days later it was a little worse so we took her back. This time we were told to continue again and that it was a diaper rash, and to keep her out of diapers as much as possible. Which we had already been trying to do since we've been on the potty training track. So she is pretty much potty trained out of necessity now. That was 3 weeks ago and it is worse. It doesn't bother her, we've asked and she has said "no" whatever that is worth from a 2-1/2 year old, and she doesn't act like it bothers her either. I think the goop on her bottom bothers her more. We really don't want to take her back to the doc to just pay the co-pay and have them tell us it is a diaper rash again. Any suggestions on what to try or what could be causing this. If there is any kind of improvement we will hold off taking her for another few days.

I would suggest taking her to a chiropractor tht deals with herbs. It may be a food allergy that's being undiagnosed. I had 2 children that had this problem & I was desparate. I received help from a Chiropractor who used herbs to heal the body from the inside. It worked! I was very skeptical when I went, but as I said I was desparate. Food allergies or any allergy can have odd reactions sometimes, but they're always treatable.

My son had a serious case of diaper rash as an infant & he was allergic to disposable diapers. You might consider giving cloth diapers a try. They're a lot of work, but combined with the prescription ointment from the Dr., his bottom cleared up just fine. Good luck.

Since the cream that you have been using isn't working could the rash be from an allergy to something. I have a grandaughter who a rash on her bottom when she eats Chicken Nuggets from McDonald's. Also, if it's not due to allergy have you tried using yeast infection cream on her??? They creams you have been using won't work if it's a yeast type of rash. Just a thought....good luck.

Try women's yeast infection medication, topically. It worked on my daughter beautifully. The lovely thing is it is safe and can't hurt. And, the generic is cheap.

There is a Balm that has been on the market since 1899. Now you'll laugh - it was made for the udders of cows. It's called Bag Balm - it has a petrolatum base. The healing ingredient is camphor. I've used it on my children for insect bites- bee stings - poison ivy rash - dry skin - ring worm infestation. I've also used it on our pets for cuts and scratches. Check to make sure your daughter is not allergic to camphor tho.

I had a friend with shingles. I gave her some bag balm to use and told her to ask her doctor about using it. She said the doctor told her the bag balm probably kept the rash from spreading.

I have four children from one to ten and operate a home daycare catering specifically to infants and toddlers. I swear by this remedy, and it is something you can make with over the counter products. Get a tube of desitin ORIGINAL. The creamy desitin does not have a thick enough consistency. Mix monistat cream or any generic yeast infection cream with the desitin in a small container until it is well blended. Use very generously and I can guarantee that you will see a difference in a day or so.

I just dealt with the same thing with my 2 1/2 year old. Have gone through it with my other two also. I initially treated it this time with the anti-fungal cream, but did not get results. He does have eczema and so I put a little hydro cortizone in the morning and at night, it was gone the next day. I also notice that even the baby washes and soaps dry him out more. Dove soap seems to work well along with the aveeno baby lotion. Too many baths or too warm of a bath can also irritate it. Lots of advice out there, hope you find something that works!

My 3 year old has this same problem going on right now! I have not completely figured it out, but I'm working on my latest theory... Is your daughter in Pull-Ups? I think that the part of the Pull-up where the stretchy part meets the cotton part is exactly where the rash is on my daughter. Regular diapers had cotton all over, but the Pull-Ups have that stretchy part. My daughter is potty trained for the daytime but wears the Pull-Ups at night so I have started just this week to leave her "day-time underwear" on under her "night-time Pull-Up" and the rash has slowly been fading. ANYTIME I have tried ANY lotion or cream it made it worse so I am sticking right now with keeping her bottom coverd with good clean cotton underwear and not letting that stretchy part of the Pull-Up touch her cheeks/upper thigh. I hope this helps!

I have used Triple Paste in the past and it has helped with my son's rash when the Maalox/Aquaphor didn't help. As far as what is causing this, it could be tons of things. Most likely something she is eating. This could be tough to figure out. Just try to think back on when the rash first appeared. Was there any foods that you introduced into her diet? Or maybe different kinds of fruits? Did you change your detergent or maybe her body lotion? Or maybe the lotion that you use, could also be a perfume or after-shave. Just try to think of anything that is new to her body.

I had a similiar situation with my son. His rash was all over his stomach area, a little below but mostly above his diaper area. I took him to my family doctor several times, tried all sorts of creams, that didn't work. Finally he sent me to a dermatologist and she immediately told me he had plugged sweat glands. All the creams/lotions, etc were just making it worse. We have since stopped applying any sort of lotion or powder to that area and have seen a huge improvement. Maybe get a referral to a dermatologist. I went to Helen Torak in Medina. My Copay was the same as my regular doctor visit $15.00. Good Luck!

There is a cream that you can get from the pharmacy. It's over the counter, but you have to ask for it. It's called Calmoseptine. We originally got it to help with my sons g-tube drainage. Helps with any gastric juices that may leak. We have also used as diaper rash ointment and has worked wonders and works pretty fast. Here is the link to the website so you can check it out.

The rash could be eczema. All three of my children have eczema and the rashes range from their bottoms to their legs, they also appear as blothches on their faces. I have a prescription medicine for them, but I was instructed to begin with a cortizone cream and Eucerin lotion to alleviate the dry skin. You could even try an oatmeal bath, Aveeno makes a great one, it softens the water so it doesn't dry out their skin.

The absolute best diaper rash ointment I have ever used is called Resinol. You cannot find it just anywhere. I was told by a doctor to use it on my daughter when she had a rash that would just not go away. You have to go to Walgreens. That is the only place that has it or can get it as far as I know. Regardless, you have to go to the pharmacy and ask for it. If they do not have any in stock, they can order it and it takes a day or two to come in but believe me it is so well worth it. The rash disappears very quickly... I saw a drastic reduction within the first day. Be sure to use a very small amount!

My daughter, who's 16 months old, has very sensitive skin. She's also had a diaper rash that just wouldn't seem to go away, especially with the help of prescription rash cream.

This is what we did: One layer of Aquaphor (or similar ointment); top with one layer of Pinksalve (not sure of spelling... but it's the pink stuff in a white tube); top with corn starch (or baby powder).

It turns out that my daughter's sensitive skin was reacting to the acid in her urine - from oranges, peaches and other food. We adjusted her diet for about a month to help heal her bottom and have just started reintroducing these foods in small quantities - and when we're sure she's got plenty of cream on the area that always seemed to rash up.

It might sound complicated or like a lot of effort, but it's made a HUGE difference! Good luck!

Hello!

My daughter had what I believe is a similar issue and our doctor suggested it might be an allergy.

She recommended an elimination diet of the top five allergens: Dairy, Soy, Wheat/Gluten, Eggs and (sorry I can't remember the fifth one), but anyway, since she was doing fine on the soy formula and had never had dairy (due to my intolerance I haven't given her much), and we don't eat eggs, I eliminated wheat, and within two days of eliminating the wheat, the rash went away. I knew wheat was the problem when we gave her oyster crackers three weeks later and the rash came back within a few hours.

The doctor explained that my daughter's stools were acidic and the acid would eat away at her skin and cause the rash.

It was a relief to me and my husband to know this information, so I thought I would pass it along in case it might help your family as well.

Good luck!

If your daughter is out of diapers most of the time, I doubt it is diaper rash. Maybe she is allergic to something, the soap you use?, material of her underwear?, baby wipes? Does the cream you use coat her skin like Vaseline? so that no moisture or anything is actually touching her skin? I would try coating with plain Vaseline and use only 100% cotton. Make sure caregivers are not wiping potty seat with anything that might irritate- rinse well after washing it.

My daughter is having the same problem with her daughter. She has been to the dr. and then has continually called them complaining that it wasn't working, so they told her to use Monostat 1 day or 3 day cream.(for women's yeast infections)You will probably have to buy it in the pre-filled tubes. She said that it is a yeast infection. Definitely keep the diaper off if you can, and when you do put it on, use the monostat. Nat said it is helping, but very slowly. She called the dr. back again complaining and they called in an oral antibiotic this time. It is Omnicef. You might try to call the dr. and insist they call something in. Since you have been there a couple of times with no help, I would suggest you tell them you can't afford to pay another co-pay for them to tell you nothing! That is crazy.

I always used maalox and vasoline mixed together or just straight maalox. I always kept the maalox in the frige so it was cold. If you mix the 2 I just used a bowl with a lid and kept it in the diaper bag. My son would get horrible rashes and this always seemed to help him. Good Luck! Melanie

J.,
Sounds like you have tried most of the tried and true remedies. I would check into taking her to a dermatologist.

A little about me: I have been married to my wonderful husband for 22 1/2 years. We have two adult children and two grandsons.
