My baby has a severe diaper rash. Poor thing. It all started when we went to the city for her ultrasound. I decided to use some disposable diapers that were given to me. I figured it would be easier to just be able to throw them away instead of hauling around my wetbag and cloth diapers.
Now I wish I had just stuck with cloth! The rash got worse and worse, and nothing seemed to help. For a while I was using cornstarch, and washing her bum with baking soda water. It helped for a while, but then it got worse again when she had a poopy diaper during the night a few nights ago.
Last night Bria was up almost every hour. She just couldn't sleep I guess. So, this morning we headed over to the Pharmacy, and asked the Pharmacist for some help. He gave me some anti-fungal cream, and a 0.5% Cortisone cream to mix together.
I also read over at Dr. Sears website that lanolin helps, so I pulled out my tube of Lansinoh! I think I'll put that over the other creams to seal it in and keep the pee off. I'm so hoping that this will heal her tender tushie!
What have you tried that has worked for nasty rashes? I know I'm definitely sticking to cloth now! What to do with those extra disposables...
