Diaper Rash

Since Desmond was a few weeks old he has gotten a diaper rash off and on near his crotch. Never on his genitals but the area above where his penis is. It gets real red for a few days and then it'll be fine for a few days then red with bumps then clear. I thought switching to cloth would help but it still gets like that.

Am I just maybe not keeping that area dry enough? Should I let him go diaperless for a while? It doesn't seem to bother him (only time diaper rash bothers him is when he poops like 8 times a day and his buttcrack gets all red). And what creams do you recommend? Desiten (sp?) isn't helping, Hydrophor isn't working, and store brand isn't working. I've tried BM on it but it seems to just roll off lol, how do I go about putting BM on that area and getting it to stay?

He has an appt next week for his weight check. I swear he feels heavier too. And I swear, since going off the mini pill he has stopped camping out at the boob lol. And I keep squirting the poor guy in the face again lol. I'll ask his dr about the rash too. Smile

Have you tried using a cream for a yeast infection?? Far from an expert since we have been very lucky and only had one diaper rash, but it was a yeast infection and once I used an anti-fungal cream it cleared up quickly!

Would a yeast infection clear up and then come back? It's almost always just red, but sometimes it'll have bumps for a day then just red again. I just know that I hate him having it even if it doesn't bother him.

Kole gets something like that, but his is more around his testicles and in his creases. Regular anything never worked on either of my kids. I use the Maximum strength Desitin and it usually works well. But we are having the same issue with the recurrence.
