My all most 1 year has a had a bad rash for about 2 weeks. I have tried everything, I mean dipper rash cream and also got something from the doctors. And it seems to not go away, the rash is like really red and it is all over her area. I don't know what to do, because I am getting sick of taking her to the doctors and nothing they do is working. I mean could she have an allergy to her pee or something. Because that runs in my boyfriends side of the family. Please help me.

if you BF, then put some breast milk on the sore spot and let it air dry before putting her diaper back on...it should start to clear up with in a few days.

i agree with sarah - corn starch is great...and i wouldn't let her soak in the tub too much until it clears up some...keep it nice and dry and give her some "air" time with her diaper off for a little while if possible...good luck!

Huh wow that even sounds good, what is looks like is that it is really red all over and in some spots it is so raw that is it starting to bleed, I have taking her to the doctor like 3 or 4 times about it and nothing they give or tell me to do is working. I just feel so bad for her, but thank you so much for ideas. I mean I am new at this, she is my first and I just worry to much all the time. :)

Know I haven't tired that, Ill have to and let you know. Yeah I mean I haven't had any problems with rashes when she was born but now it is just really bad. I let her soak in the bath and everything. I just makes me sad because I don't know what to do. I mean the doctor gave me this stuff called poop goop and it hasn't done anything to improve it.

I know it's an old remedy, but corn startch really does work.

Was she on antibiotics for anything? My son gets a yeast infection whenever hes on antibiotics, it looks just like a diaper rash, but there is usually a little bit of white stuff and it can smell. If u think thats a possibility, there are special creams ur dr will give ya.
