My daughter has a horrible red, angry diaper rash and I don't know what it's from! She hasn't changed foods or anything. It isn't red and bumpy like a yeast infection and when you try and wipe her, it's raw and bleeds. Nothing has helped it clear up and it's been three days....any suggestions?? We've tried not using wipes, using creams, using Vaseline, airing it out...

What kind of diapers do you use? Have you switched them?

My son got bad like this before, and what we did was used petroleum jelly first, followed by extra strength Desitin (purple bottle). That was the only thing that helped. Put the Desitin on very thick and change her often. Also, you do not have to wipe the cream off every time they pee. It actually helps to avoid the wipes and just swap the diaper every other time. Hope it gets better for you soon!

Have you tried just A&D. My little one stays red and irritated If I use anything else like destin and such. So just A&D works best

Have you tired aquaphor? My grandma said back in the day they used corn starch. I would try the aquaphor first though :)

Try desitin with 40% zinc oxide nighttime relief. ( make sure it's clean and dry first), I use baby powder quite a bit, chamomile baths, also if it looks like yeast you may want to treat for yeast.. Nystatin cream

This happens to my son every now and then. I just put a lot of cream on it at every diaper change and it heals in a few days.

Try browning some flour in a pan, let it cool, then dust some on it with each diaper change. Sounds crazy, but really works!

Wash her with water in the sink after diaper change. Dont use wipes for now, they have chemicals and might hurt her. Use good diapers and make sure u have it on evenly and not to tight. Also use A&D, its oretty good. And let her be without a diaper at home. Her skin need to heal by airing out. Just put a pad under her. And show her to the doctor

My daughter had an angry rash and her pedi said it was a fungus. Mixed lotrimin and desitin. Cleared it up.

One of my LO had a bleeding rash when she was 1 month. Doc suggested Dr. Smiths cream, the rash was gone in the morning. I have been using it with every diaper change since and no problems since.

Natural baby powder will heal the skin and dry it out. Creams will make it worse. Cornstarch works great too!!

I love Dr Smith cream or use corn starch, just pour a lot over area and change diaper often. I would use corn starch at its worst then once u see it getting better I would switch to cream!

Ok we tried the baking soda bath, the fungus + diaper rash cream, cornstarch, no diaper on, no wipes just water....poor thing still has the rash! I feel so bad bc she just shakes and cries at every diaper change, or as soon as she's got a wet or dirty diaper. I was at target and got some Honest company healing balm so we'll see how well that works bc all the other diaper rash creams haven't so far
