Hey ladies, I've heard several great suggestions for diaper rash creams, but I don't have time to order one, I need something now! My son has a rash that is obviously not yeast. It's a "burn", if you will. It's raw. His whole bottom was red, and now none of it is red except for two spots that are raw. I think I finally figured out the problem. We had him in gDiapers using prefolds instead of their cloth inserts (to save money). I really think he was getting a urine burn. We switched to FuzziBunz about a week ago and the rash immediately started clearing up (probably because of the wicking material that's closest to his bottom), but these two little areas are still raw. Can I use anything from home that is safe on CDs? Vaseline, olive oil, Triple Antibiotic salve? I've read other websites that have tons of home remedies for diaper rash, but I don't know if any of them work well, or if any of them are safe for CDs. Any suggestions?
Oh, BTW, I have let him air out and put butt paste on him for about 30 minutes a few times in the last couple days, but it's still there.
