My 4 year old son has a really sever diaper rash, he has an appointment with a specialist coming up in a couple weeks, however the rash is really bad and i need some advise as to things i can do to help him. The rash covers his entire fanny, is real red, he has open sores ( around the hole as well as randomly spread around his fanny ) it's real painful for him when i have to clean him after going number two, and it seems to burn a bit when he is put in the bath. At the moment i am using a variety of things on the rash ( one prescribed by his pediatrician ) I put neosporin on the open sores ( directed by his doctor ) cover red area with vaseline to lock out wetness, use maximum strength desitin for the rash, and use an antibacterial cream to help clear it all up. Now my problem is my son has gastro intestinal issues and has diarrhea all day every day and it's making clearing the rash almost impossible. Do any of you mom's have any advise as to what i may be able to do for this rash. Any advise will help. Thank you all for your time.
