Diaper Rash ?

My daughter got that nasty stomach virus that is going around and still is having diarrea(sp?). she now has a bad diaper rash bc of the diarrea, during the day I change her as soon as i know she has gone, but what she is doing is going at night and sleeping in it. I can tell bc it is all dried up on to her little bottom. I have been using desitin creamy and it seems to work ok but it keeps coming back. I am just wondering if there is anything else I can do or if I just have to wait it out?

Corn Starch vs Talcum Powder

Hello Mama's Yesterday I read a posted question looking for a certain brand of powder, in reading the answers one mother stated that talcum powder is bad for your health. So being a mama i went home to see if the dollar store version equivalent to shower to shower powder that i use has corn starch or talcum and it has both. So my question is what are the health concerns with talcum powder that i am not informed of. Thanks Mama's

Help, My Son Won't Take His Medicine!

Ben, 2 1/2, is on antibiotics for a possible staph infection on his cheek (again). I'm having the hardest time getting him to take his medicine. He wont take it willingly, he will just spit it out. I have to have him take it, else he will end up in the hospital like last year for 5 days on IV antibiotics. I've tried bribing him with lots of different candy, but he still wont take it.
