I have a 5 month old daughter who out of no where got severe diaper rash I used maximum strength desitin and it didn't help I then changed the brand of diapers and used a&d ointment for diaper rash but it doesn't seem to be getting any better can someone please help

I had to deal with that once...I had my daughter sit in some warm water and bathed her with soap multiple times a day to keep the area as clean as possible. I also left her diaper off for periods of time so that the skin wasn't trapped in that hot moist environment. That worked for her.
Could the type of wipes you are using be irritating to her? They have the sensitive skin ones that have no fragrance.
Hope this helps :)
