My son is 9 1/2 months old and the poor little guy is in such terrible pain from teething and diaper rash from the diarrhea. I have tried everything from anti fungal creams to letting him go diaper less. Does any one know of anything else I can do to comfort him????

Just slowly go through and change the things that touch his skin and see if any show a change. Even with eczema many don't see results from the cream alone. Hope you figure it out soon.

My son does have a slight case of eczema. I have a special cream that the doctor did prescribe but still nothing has worked.

Have you started any new foods in his diet? That might be what is causing it.

Other options, change the brand of diaper you use, change laundry soaps, and body soaps out, stop using wipes and either use a wet rag to clean him or rinse him in the tub or sink instead.

The best option might be to call your doctor so they can prescribe an hydrocortisone cream with steroids. Also rule out that it might be eczema.
