My daughter has a horrible rash on her bottom and I have tried all the creams going! She is teething her top teeth and I think this might have caused it. Any suggestions??

It could be a number of things causing the rash, the diaper, the wipeys, the detergents, the soaps you are using. I know of an awesome wellness company that focuses on all natural ingredients for the house and personal care products, the same kind that we are already purchasing at the grocery stores but they are much safer, much better, and much healthier. Many products out there (from baby shampoos, to lotions, to dish washing soap, to detergent for laundry, etc.) have so many toxic ingredients that cause mild to serious health problems short term and long term. I have found a great company and I am proud to also be working for them as well and even better I get to work for them from home. Many people have joined our team, mostly moms who want to stay home after having their children and are very successful. If you want some more information contact (Debra Mendoza, NewWellness4you.com and livetotalwellness.com/damendoza)

its very coomon for teething babies to get a rash! all you can do is change often, use creams and let her be diaper free as much as possible!!

when my daugher started teething she got horrible nappy rash, it started blistering and no matter what cream i used it wouldnt go away... i took her to the doctors and it ended up not only being nappy rash but thrush also which is apparently common in little teething girls!! the doctor was able to give me a presciption for creams which worked amazingly!! they cleared it up quickly! even its just come back because shes getting more teeth!! goodluck with it!!






Is that true that babies can get nappy rash due to teething? ihave never heard of this before!






 






Yeah its true!! its pretty common aswell but people dont normally think that nappy rash and teeth would be related in some way!! my doctor told me to expect it to come and go as Ella gets teeth!! it might not happen in all babies but my daughter definately got dealt that card!!

Give her loads of nappy free time, change diapers often and use a good barrier cream. Good luck!!
