Hi all my daughter has a horrible bacterial rash in her diaper area and it is taking forever to heal have taken her to doctor 3 different times to be treated for the rash they put her on antibiotics and now we have to wait and see , my daughter was potty trained until she developed the rash now she refuses to use the potty and dislikes being changed because it hurts , she is 13 months old

I know this is going to sound really bizarre, but when my son had a really bad bleeding rash (from diarrhea), what I would do at diaper changes is wash his bum gently with a warm washcloth and a bit of unscented Baby Dove soap. Then I'd pat him dry with a towel and blow-dry his bum with my hair dryer on the "cool" setting, until his skin was perfectly dry. Then, I'd smear on a fairly decent layer of Elizabeth Arden Eight-Hour Cream.

I know. It sounds weird. But it cleared up his rash in about a day and a half.

my daughter had a really bad nappy rash and hated being bathed or changed because it was really raw, i used a cream which is avaiable from any chemist called metanium it cleared up straight away it stays on the skin and protects it from moisture which would probably be making it worse. i would truely recommend it.

Try Lotrimin..can use that or the store brand, used to use that with my son every time he had really bad diaper rashes and it works like a charm. I know, sounds weird, considering its an antifungal cream for athletes foot but it seriously works! Let me know the results :) I would put it on my son, and let him run around nakey for 10 mins a day and let it air dry. My sons pediatrician recommended that, even when his rash was so bad that it got to the point of bleeding!

I say wash her gently with dial antibacterial bar soap every evening (maybe twice a day) and let her air dry before putting anything on her like diapers or panties. That's what I did when my daughter got blisters from diaper rash. (Yeah- that was the babysitter we sacked...)
