Diaper Rash Medication

Hi, we are having a very difficult time keeping diaper rash under control on my 7 month old daughter. We currently use Desityn, but have tried Boudreau's Butt Paste and neither are helping it go away. I change her diaper every few hours unless otherwise needed. I give her bath's a lot to try and help things. I let her lay on the flooor today with out a diaper for a while, but her bottom is still sooo chapped. She cries when we put medicine on her. I am greatful for any advice on this crazy topic!

5 Month Old Has Ringworm on Arm

Hi Moms, Anyone with experience treating ringworm on a baby? Any advise would be appreciated! Pediatrician recommended Lotrimin AF, but I've read about possible side effects for its active ingredient clotrimazole. I have a creme anti fungal with the active ingredient tolnaftate, which I've read has less side effects. Not sure what to use, not sure what to do.
