Looking for Advice on Infant Skincare

My 5 month old daughter is very chubby and has very red, chaffed skin on the back of her knees. I'm sure it's because her legs are so chubby, but I can't find anything that helps it. I've tried Aquaphor, Vaseline, A&D, baby oil - nothing works. Does anyone have any advice? Thanks!!

Diaper Rash with Yeast Infection

My one year old daughter got a yeast infection about a week and a half ago and she is at a in-home daycare all day. I wish she can walk around without her diaper on however it may not be possible at all times. I have used a prescription ointment to clear up the infection but the rash seemed to of burned her on the sides and now it doesn't seem to want to clear up. I tried using pure corn starch and just regular petroleum jelly to stop the redness. I also like to use triple paste. Does anyone have any suggestions on the best course of...

Bad Toddler Diaper Rash

My daughter has had the worse diaper rash off and on for over a month. I called the pediatrician and spoke to the nurse twice and do what she says, then it gets better for awhile and comes back worse. The first time we thought it was a yeast infection so we treated it by not using wipes, and using lotrimen followed with cornstarch, and making sure it was very dry. It got better, but came back again, this time with no bumpy rash, so I started using triple paste (very thick) and medicated cornstarch which made it better for awhile. But it...

Raw Spots After a Diaper Rash.

My 14 month old had a diaper rash that has cleared up, but she still has several red raw spots we can't get to go away. We're using Aquaphor, Butt Paste, and sun through the window when we can (she doesn't stay still long enough). We do cloth diapers and change her frequently to get the wet off, but they're not healing. Any recommendations?! Thanks so much!

OMG! I Can't Get the Diaper On!

My 8 mos. son, all of the sudden, is rolling and sitting up which is wonderful! But not on the changing table. I have given up and gone to the floor for safety measures, but I still CANNOT get him to sit still to get the diaper on. He also needs triple paste so you can imagine trying to add that in there! I have tried to distract him and give him a toy, I have tried to keep one toy aside so it is special only for diaper changes, I have tried to work with him and put the diaper on while he is sitting up (which is what this all stems from,...

Almost 2Yr Old with Bad Diaper Rash!

I need help. My daughter is almost 2 and she had lose poopies for about a day and a half, she still have lose poopie but the worst diaper rash I have ever seen. I change her all the time. She has never even had a rash when she's been sick or as a infant. This is as red as red gets. She won't even sit or let you go near her to wipe or for cream. I feel like the cream is just making it more moist and not helping. I have tried the old fashion ways and still no help. Is there medication or something a doctor can get to help, or is someone out...

Seeking Advice on Chronic Diaper Rash

My son has been getting recurrent diaper rashes that are terrible! I have tried every diaper cream out there, Triple Paste, Desitin, A&D, Balmex, But Paste, Aveeno, Cortaid, and even Nystatin. I let him air out as often as I can and it seems to be the only thing to help until he goes again in his diaper - there the rash is again. It was so bad it bled. My doctor says there is nothing else I can do. HELP??

Diaper Rash Remedies

Does anyone have any good diaper rash remedies? I've tried the over the counter creams, letting her be without a diaper, longer bath time. It doesn't seem to be clearing up. It's also not getting too bad, but she's maintaining a rash. With my son I used his eczema cream & it cleared it up immediately. However, now that eczema cream has the warning "may cause cancer" we've stopped using it. Also on that note, does anyone have a home remedy for exzema. Thanks

Need Advice on Diaper Rash- 6 1/2 Month Old Infant

My daughter has been sick since she started daycare at 5 months old. She started out with a very bad cold that lasted 2 1/2 weeks.

She is now on antibiotics for 10 days and it is causing diarrhea several times a day. The diarrhea is causing severe diaper rash with some oozing spots. The pediatrition said it's not a yeast rash, but it's just been an endless...

Severe Diaper Rash Help

My 10 month old was on antibiotics which we completed 9 days ago and she still has diareah (forgive the spelling) but worse off she has what seems to be an incurable sever case of diaper rash. She is raw and sometimes slightly bleeding when I clean here. I have used Desitin, Triple Paste, Powder, Nystatin prescribed by her doctor, and fresh Aloe. The Aloe calms it down somewhat but can't seem to kick it. Any suggestions of anything that has worked for you? Thanks

Causes of Diaper Rash

Hi! My son recently turned one and has started having problems with developing diaper rash. Up until now, we haven't had too much of a problem with this but recently it has become an ongoing issue. I always change his diaper as soon as I know that it is soiled so I don't think this is the issue. I have talked to his peditrician about what could be causing the flare ups and was told that it could be a reaction to something that he is eating. He informed me the only way to find out which food was causing the reaction was to start all...

Diapers for Sensitive Skin???

A friend of mine has a son that has chronic diaper rash. Everytime he pees, they have to change his diaper or the rash flares up. The docs think it is eczema, and it getting wet it irritating it. The poor little guy scratches all the time and is uncomfy. She has tried Pampers and Huggies diapers, with no luck. We are thinking cloth will make it worse because instead of absorbing the wetness away from the skin, they will just absorb the wetness next to the skin. She has 3 creams that the doc has her putting on him, but it doesn't sound...

Your Favorite or Most Useful Baby Gift

I have several friends and relatives who are due in the next few months and am looking for some meaningful and/or really helpful baby gifts. It seems like everyone gave me clothes when my girls were born and although they were useful, they weren't very meaningful. And after all, a well-dressed baby still has problems sleeping, eating or whatever! I have hand-knitted gifts in the past but just don't have the time now. Also, any suggestions for an item that you found invaluable that you were so thankful to have?
