Freaking out from diaper rash!

Kristen - posted on 06/11/2012 ( 3 moms have responded )




My 20 month old got his first diaper rash...really bad....on my mother-in-laws watch I might add. The pain he is in, just from water, is heart wrenching. Is that normal? I thought it would make it feel better but he screamed in pain so much that he tensed up and couldn't move. I'm extremely annoyed with her. My baby is in pain.

From my experience you need a special pharmacy-only cream. It sounds like its bacterial. My daughter had that happen once too and regular crams like bepanthan and paw-paw cream didnt work. Best of luck, its so heart breaking when they are in pain>

My youngest suffers often from it, she's changed and cleaned regular so it's nothing I am doing, i think she might have really sensitive skin, they can also get it if their teething, not been changed or not wiped when changed.
If it's possible let him have some nappy off time and let the fresh air get to it, when you put a nappy on use lots of barrier cream.
