Ok... This isn't just a typical rash... It is almost considered extreme, it just hasn't gotten to the point of bleeding yet. My 17 month old has had it now for almost 4 weeks. It doesn't seem to bother her more than just itching, but when I put something on it, she seems ok. I have taken her to the doctor, and they said I am doing everything right, and to just keep trying. It's not a yeast rash or anything like that. But it won't go away!! It will look a little bit better for part of the day, usually after I let her run around naked for a bit to air out. Then over night, even changing her 2 or 3 times throughout the night, it gets worse again. Here are the things I have tried, and please, if you know of anything else, let me know! I just want my poor baby girl's bottom to clear up!!
Bordeaux's Butt Paste
Dr. Scholl's for Her Cracked Skin creme
I don't use wipes on her unless she poops and it's absolutely necessary. Doc said extra wiping irritates it more. I let her soak in water in the tub, which seems to help, but again... over night, it gets worse. I let her run around naked, which is extremely messy, and trying on my patience!! I just don't know what to do. There HAS to be a solution!! Please help!!
