diaper rash OR diaper allergy?

[deleted account] ( 3 moms have responded )

My son (12 months old) is definitely allergic to huggies and he pees thru pampers. We have had him in luvs since he was a few months old because of this. I bought parent's choice (walmart brand) diapers the other day just to try them out and he has had diaper rash the last day or two. Is it coincidence or the diapers? It looks like normal diaper rash though. when we noticed he was allergic to huggies his skin was red everywhere the diaper contacted his skin as opposed to the normal diaper rash. another possibility is that they are too big and rubbing they run bigger than luvs so i got the wrong size on accident. Anyways wouldn't the rash be his entire diaper area if allergic to them?

My daughter can't wear Huggies or some cheap brands. Parent's Choice, White Cloud, and Pampers she does fine with. The other ones give her a rash right around her private parts. It looks almost like a regular diaper rash, but it happens every time she wears these other types of diapers, so I'm sure it's an allergy. Many times I notice that the skin is more red than a normal diaper rash and scaly. If you have any suspicions about it being the diaper, I would switch back to what works for you. We had the same problem with my oldest daughter, who is now 11. It's been so long I don't remember all of the specifics, but I do remember she could wear Pampers but not Huggies. As far as peeing through them, you may want to go up a size. They should still fit well but give you extra capacity.

My son developed a bad rash after trying out the Wal-Mart brand diapers Parent's Choice. He was crying incessantly and you could see the redness wherever the touched his body. Will be switching back to Huggie's now!!

i would change him every hr or 2 then put rash cream on it. if it doesn't go away i would put him back on luvs. my son is allergic to walmart brand and the dollar store brand. he has been on pampers since he was a baby, now a toddler and potty trained he still wears them at night cuz he still goes pee pee in his sleep.
