My baby is 22 months old now and still constantly has diaper rash, I try everything and it fades but then just keeps coming back! She does have very sensitive skin and it doesnt seem to bother her just me. Anyone else have this problem?

Are they yeasty type rashes? Red bumps? My daughter is the same age and she has very sensitive skin as well. I am a pediatric RN so I know pretty well what yeast looks like. My daughter was getting yeasty rashes back to back and we were using yeast creams on and off quite frequently. I started looking into other ways to treat this naturally because your body can become resist to creams after a while. I came across many references that said probiotics are good for treating yeast. It is called lactobaccillus and you give it by mouth. I started treating her daily for the past few months and she hasn't had a rash or sore bottom since. It is in a green box, it's about $25-27, depending on where you get it (Walgreens and Target). You open the capsule in a tablespoon of yo baby yogurt or some other yogurt and it's pretty tasteless. The same company makes the same thing but it comes in a yellow box but is a stronger dose but I just open the capsule and sprinkle half of the capsule in yogurt. I know it's expensive but I have found it very worth it and now I have all my kids take some, plus myself because it's good for digestive health.

Tips:
Start the probiotics
Change diapers frequently every 1-2 hours initially
Use hypoallergenic laundry detergent and softner, seventh generation is AWESOME
Use unscented hypoallergenic lotion and body wash (Earth's Best is good)
When bathing use some sea salt in the bath water, it's a natural detox and cleanse for skin
Hope this helps, Let me know if you have questions :)

My daughter was born on March 29 and I have the same problem!! I even use a prescription diaper ointment on her and that isn't helping it either. The doctor did say that it could be because she's teething, but that doesn't explain why it goes away and comes back when all her teeth aren't in yet. She has sensitive skin as well, she gets rough red patches on her cheeks from the winter weather or if I give her too much red foods (ex: ketchup, cherry kool aid). I sure hope this clears up soon...I try changing her every hour to keep her dry. Good luck to the other mothers, and please let me know of any home remedy's you have found to work : )

It might be a yeast infection try rubbing vagisile on it, that is what cured my little girl I was treating the wrong thing. Yeast infections are common in baby girls my doctor said.

My 22 month old daughter has very sensitive skin too! It gets worse in the winter. We noticed after she turned a year old that she was getting diaper rash and it wouldn't go away. Then her back would break out into red, rough spots and it would then spread to her chest and arms. We took her to her doctor and she was diagnosed with atopic dermititis. Since then, her clothes get washed with no dye, no perfume detergent. For baths, she's washed with bar Dove soap. While her skin is still damp, she gets Eucerin mostierizing cream slathered on. As for the diaper rash, her doctor said that the cream doesn't work for yeast or fungi. He recommended we use hydrocortizone and jock itch cream together for a little while, instead of the diaper rash cream. As well as to change her frequently. I tell you it worked like a charm within a few days! Since then, we've never had to use the hydrocortizone and jock itch cream again.
