Hi i hope this might help. Have you tried using a warm wash cloth and just gently wipe the area that's infected. My 1 yr old has diaper rashes when she goes. I tried this and it helped. Also try not to use wipes scented one they will hurt. So i hoped this will work. Please let me know update. thanks and good luck.

sometimes it isn't diaper rash but rather a yeast infection. Try canesten--as recommended by my pharmacist! Cleared a terrible terrible rash on my son in two days! Yes, babies boys and girls can get yeast infections.

When our son had diarreah, our pediatrician recommended Flander's Buttocks Ointment. No prescription needed, but our pharmacy keeps behind the counter. His diaper rash was pretty bad and the Flander's did the trick for us.

nappy free time, and when you're wiping her bottom use a clean cloth and fresh water instead of wipes as obviously you'll be using them more often while she's unwell and the chemicals in them will irritate her sensitive bum! In the Uk we have a cream called SUDOCREM it's fabulous, no prescription needed. Hope she feels better soon x

If she has vomiting and diareah you prob should get her to the doctor. As far as the rash goes, my Doc says to use Thrush cream from the chemest, no script needed and castor oil mixed in your hand, i just make up enough for the day in a little container. Caster oil to stop the poo an wee getting on the skin and thrush cream cos it is a anti fungle. Plenty of nappy off time, but when she has to have a nappy on put the cream on like whipped cream on a cake, HEAPS and change her nappy every 40mins to an hour until the rash goes. Poor little thing, it's not fair is it. Good luck.

My daughter had the same problem. As Erin says to leave the nappy off for a few minutes along with an ointment with zinc helps quickly. I used zinc and castor oil mixed. Worked wonders... thats so uncomfortable for them all the best!
