My baby doesn't have a diaper rash at all on her anus. She only has red spots on the front of her. It seems to be getting worse. I figure if it is something she ate then it would be on her behind too.
Can anyone help? She doesn't have a Dr. Appt. for another 2 weeks :(

It sounds to me like your little one may have a bit of a yeast infection. You can use diaper rash creams on it (I would recommend Aveeno) and you can also put baking soda in her bath water. But more than likely the only thing that is going to get rid of it is a prescription cream from the doctor. If you take her swimming don't let her set in her wet suit for too long after you are finished and change her often. This should help some until you can at least get into the doctors. Hope this helps.

Well the first thing that comes to mind is diaper rash!, But there are a number of other possiblities. It may be an allergic reaction to differnet diapers, wet wipes, wash etc any thing that comes into contact with that area. If u are using any thing new or different stop using it and switch back to products you have used before.



Or it could be an infection or thrush! Not many parents are aware that even babies can get thrush (yeast infection). If so then anti-biotics or creams can help with this but need to be prescribed by your dr, so try and get an earlier appointment if you can.



In the meantime i would advise using a diaper cream, to stop urine irriating her further. Barrier creams are best such as sudocream.



Hope this has helped
