My son pooped, kinda thin, he is teething, within thirty minutes he pooped again, this time his bottom and genitials were red and raw. touched him with a wipe even patting, he screamed, cried like he never has, his legs were shaking and he tried get away, then stuck him in the tub to see if the water would be less painful than the wipe still cried horribly, so started sticking him in the tub to clean him up instead of wipes. after spending all night of alternating A&D and Destin Maximum Strength by the morning time he is still slightly red and can be touched with a wipe again without the tears. his urine is stronger in odor than usual. is this from teething? has anybody else had this happen?

I think the strong urine would mean he needs some more water... this happens to adults too.My son too had this but it was from whole milk. Go over what you have changed if anything and maybe stop and see if the rash stays away... if not maybe it is from teething. I found that Lansinoh diaper rash cream worked the best for us when this happened. Good luck

its just so hard to let them run around without a diaper at that age because they cant control there bladder. but i guess the mess is worth cleaning up to keep him from being in that much pain!
