my 7 month old has a really red bumpy rash under her neck. Wondering if there is something I can put on it or should I just wait it out.

Try Penaten diaper cream. First makes sure it's dry after tubbies and such. Use a talcless powder or cornstarch. If you've been doing that already, try the diaper cream. Good luck!

If just regular rash medicine isnt working it may be a yeast infection, my neice had one under her neck when she was a baby. You can get your dr to prescribe you something or you can just go to your pharmacy and ask them if they could recomend some antifungal cream that you can buy over the counter. When my daughter had a yeast infection along with a diaper rash her pediatrician just told me to buy some athletes foot cream and put that on it ALONG with the rash medicine ( butt past works wonders!) and it was completely gone w/in the next 2 days

If the diaper cream doesn't help after a day or two take your Lo to the Dr. My baby's turned out to be a yeast infection that needed a perscription. Do keep the area dry.

Sorry for the double post but noticed someone elses advice. Please do NOT use baby powder. Most doctors these days don't even recommend baby powder for adults never mind babys. The particals are so fine and when you inhale them they stick in your lungs thus putting you are risk for such things as lung cancer. I assume you don't smoke near your babies so why would you sprinkle a fine powder that has the same effect as smoking around them?

Baking soda in the bath and corn startch after the bath. Sounds like a heat rash. Baking soda will deal with any fungus or whatever and the Corn starch will help soak up any sweat away from his little fat rolls.

My son and daughter both had this issue because of dribbling. The doctor suggested both times a basic barrier cream like you use for nappy rash. Good luck.

I would try making sure that it is always dry, checking it especially after eating and drinking. And then if it still doesnt go away I would make a Dr. apt. But when in doubt you should always call the Dr. so.......

my daughter is 7 months and gets rashes under er neck as well. because of her teething she drools alot. i just wipe it alot, try to keep her dry. use an absorbant bib as wll. see if it helps. Giveing a cold rung out washcloth (clean lol, naturally) for her to chew on can help with her gums if it is teething and the washcloth can absorb some of the droolies.

Sounds like a heat rash. I give my girl a bath, make sure she's good and dry then put baby powder or you can even put some diaper rash ointment on it too. Hope this helps!

Use the butt cream you normally use and just be sure to keep it extra dry and clean it often and it should go away in about 2 days give or take. :)

I used Boudreaux's Butt Paste on my baby's neck rash and it was gone in just a day or two.

If she's teething and drooling alot just make sure to keep wiping under her chin and neck and try to get some air circulation there. This happened with my son and we just kept wiping and would get him to lie back and blow on his neck and made a game out of it.
