    HI MOMMIES, I HAVE A QUESTION. HAS ANYONE HERE DEALT WITH SOMETHING CALLED ‘TODDLER’S DIARRHEA’? MY SON HAS HAD DIARRHEA FOR 2 MONTHS NOW AND ALONG WITH IT IS A HORRIBLE DIAPER RASH THAT WON’T GO AWAY. MY PED SAID IT’S MOST LIKELY ‘TODDLER’S DIARRHEA’ AND TO TRY A LITTLE METAMUCIL IN HIS SIPPY FOR A WEEK TO SEE IF IT FIRMS THINGS UP. THE RASH WON’T GO AWAY UNTIL THE DIARRHEA GOES AWAY. HE’S MISERABLE AND I’M AT MY WITS END TRYING TO GET RID OF THIS. I’VE ALREADY TRIED BINDING FOODS, EVERY SINGLE RASH CREAM CONCOCTION YOU CAN IMAGINE, LETTING HIM RUN DIAPERLESS (WHICH HAS BEEN EXTREMELY MESSY), AND PRESCRIPTION OINTMENTS FOR A POSSIBLE YEAST INFECTION. HELP!!! NOTHING IS WORKING!

    My son has had a nasty rash for about 2 weeks now. I’ve tried every sort of rash ointment on the shelf and nothing has worked. I’ve also been given a prescription for a yeast rash, which also hasn’t wiped it out. My Dr. has called in another prescription called silver sulfadiazine cream. Have any of you mommy’s heard of this for diaper rashes or has anyone used it before? Thanks for any input.

    My daughter had a rash that woudn’t go away (over week)…I tried cornstarch, A&D ointment, Vasaline and letting her run around nude. Then I read that if there are red spots that could mean yeast. So I took her in and the doctor told me to pick up some over the ocunter stuff. One part hydrocortizone and one part lotramin (for athletes foot). It has been two days and the rash is practically gone.

    when my kid was in the nicu when he was first born he had a horrible rash from what he was on. and they would blow dry his bottom everytime.. lol. and he loved it i dont know if he would now. and then when he was 8 months old he had another horrible rash from teething and his dr gave him buttbalm. which you can only get from a dr its a couple different butt creams mixed together worked like a charm. my mom says that a warm bath with baking soda also helps.

    My daughter has yeast on her butt. She has been on a few antibiotics for her ear infection. Needless to say she now has yeast. My ? is… can the yeast go to her tongue? Her tongue has white spots on it. We go to the dr on Thurs to get her 2cd Flu shot and to check her ears. She has had diarrhea and that caused a bad rash. We got rid of the rash but yeast is still there. She is running around nude and that has got the rash to go away BUT this nasty yeast… Any suggestions? She has the Nystatin BUT her yeast has open places on it and it burns her.

    The best thing I have found for diper rash is Aquaphor Healing Ointment. It is wonderful. Will take away the rash right away. I don’t know what I would do without it.. My Doctor told me about it and gave me some samples, I went out the next day a bought a tube…It is made by Eucerin. The first sign of a rash I put it on my little guys tush and it is gone right away. I just thought I would share what works for my little guys the best.

    so this is the best kept secret! i use to have rediculously bad diaper rash when was a baby…and just so have it so does my son at times….i tried EVERYTHING…nothing really worked…or it was going to take a long tme…hear me our ladies!
    take corn startch…cheap mabye a dollar…put it in a frying pan and turn the heat on high….use a wooden spatula or whatever..and for about 20-30 minutes…keep the cornstartch from sticking to the bottom or burning…it will turn a slight brownish color…let cool and apply to baby bottom…after 2-3 changes…diaper rash gone!
    an older doc told my mom this method and wow does it work. by heating up the cornstartch and only cornstartch, the chemical composition is changed and heating it takes out the moisture…at any rate…it works…

    almost like Nikolle’s, my doc told me over the phone to give equal parts Lotrimin, Hydrocortisone and Bacitracin. Hydrocortisone for redness, Lotrimin for yeast and Bacitracin for bacteria.

    I can’t get rid of my daughters rash. She has had one for over a month. It has gotten so bad at times that it bleeds. I have tried everything I can think of. We have even gotten a prescription from a dr. That cleared it up somewhat. I don’t know what to do. Does anybody have any suggestions?

    Heather, I would call the doctor back. The prescription I got for my son when he had a yeast infection cleared within a couple doses. My Husband’s cousin’s baby also had a severe rash because of the meds he was on for pneumonia. The doctors were awful and just said it was a side effect but he had had it for two months. I spent him one of our tubes and his was cleared within a couple days! I would see if the doctor had something else they can give your baby. i totally forgot what ours was called because it’s been over a year but there are meds that can clear up a bad rash within a couple doses. In the meantime keep up with the ointments and keep baby’s bum dry. Oh and lay a towel on the ground and give baby some ‘air time’. It helps keep baby’s bum dry and clean. My son loved it when he had a rash….well he loves being naked anyways. HAHA!

    Hi Heather. You poor thing!! One of my twins had a rash that just wouldn’t go and I finally took him to the doctors and she gave me an antifungal cream which sorted it almost straight away. I hope your baby’s botty is as easily sorted.. the poor wee mite. Good luck with solving the problem. I agree with Bri and think that heading back to the doctors might be a good plan. All the best!

    Hi All! i used liquid malox on my son’s diaper rash and it helped a lot. i guess it depends on the type of rash. my son’s was due to the change in acidity in his urine. a parent at the daycare i used to work at had used that with her son. so i gave it a shot and it worked!
