Help - My 13 Month Old Has a Bad Diaper Rash!

My 13 month old daughter developed a sudden diaper rash with two very raw areas that look like popped blisters (approx 2 cm in diameter)right where her bottom cheeks meet. Otherwise the bottom is red rashy looking. She has only had a little rash once before in her life, which healed completely within a few days. This is the fourth day of this and I'm starting to wonder if it is more complicated than just diaper rash. Any thoughts or advise on how to care for this. She doesn't act like it is hurting her much, but it really looks...

Help with My Zit Face!!

I am 22 yrs old and getting married in June. Here in the last 6 months or so I have been having these terrible breakouts! I sure don't want to have them on my wedding day!! I have tried using organic products like Eminence and I have tried AcneFree facial products. Nothing is working for me!! The Acnefree burned and dried out my skin, and I was only using it 3 times a week. I do not have oily skin and usually only dry in the winter. I need some serious help with it for sure!! The breakouts are mostly on my cheeks and temples.

21 Month Son Has Dry Patches/small Bumps on Skin

My son was born with tiny bumps on the back of his arms (like mommy). Now, his back is so dry and after bath, the skin on his back turns very red. I use johnson & johnson head to toe soap-free wash and use A LOT of lotion to sooth his dry patches on back. The doctor told me it was excema on his arms so we reguarly use cream for that too. He does not scratch or act bothered but the redness after a bath and the dryness concerns me. Any ideas?

Constipated 2 Year Old

My 2 year old son has been having trouble going poop. When he finally goes, it doesn't seem like it should have hurt that bad. It's not hard or anything. But he throws a fit every time he has to go. Then when i change him, he HATES to be wiped. This is all sort of recent, so i'm not sure why all of the sudden this is such a big deal to him. He acts like it hurts to be wiped but he has no redness or rash or anything on his bottom. I don't know what to do if he is constipated. He drinks prune juice and apple juice and a ton of water. He is a...

Teething and Diarrhea

I was wondering if any other moms had infants who had diarrhea when they were teething. My 9 month old son has 4 teeth coming in on his upper gums and he has had diarrhea for the last 2 days which in turn has led to diaper rash. I know how to treat the rash, but I wanted to know if it was common to have the diarrhea. My pediatrician said that it can happen when they're teething. I haven't introduced any new foods and he's eating fine and not running a fever. Any suggestions or input would be appreciated. I'm hoping the diarrhea stops soon!!

4-Year-old's T-T Hurting at Night Only

My daughter's "T-T" hurts her occasionally at night (and she comes in to my room crying.) I generally put her in the tub, clean her and put vaginal itch/burn cream on her. She falls asleep after that fine and is always fine in the morning and next day. I am resisting taking her to the doctor as #1 I don't want her to be on any more antibiotics and #2 It's not every night and never during the day. She is only slightly red on her outer lips at the time, no other symptoms. I ask her if it burns when she pees and she says no. Any ideas on...

11 Month Old Has Had Fever for over a Week.

My almost one year old has had an ongoing fever the past week. I took her in twice to the pediatrician's office and they've taken blood tests, urine test and checked and told me everything is fine. I don't want to give her Motrin every day. Also her stool and breath has smelled really bad. I am tired of not getting an answer. Has anyone out there encountered this and what do you recommend? Thanks!

Skin Troubles: Melasma

After being on 3+ years of fertility drugs, I have had a lot of trouble with Melasma (mask of pregnancy). It appeared after using Follistim for ~1 year, and got much worse after IVF and into pregnancy. (So bad, my patients kept asking me if I had something on my lip, or if I had been out in the sun too much!) It has faded somewhat since giving birth last June, but it is still pretty bad. I exfoliate my face once a day, use SPF 70+ and wear a hat when outside, and moisturize. I am still breastfeeding, so I can't take the prescription...
