Raw neck wrinkles

Ella has got great chubby neck wrinkles, problem is a few of them are getting quite red and raw. I try to clean and dry them regularly, but I guess that's not enough to help them really heal.

So what would you all suggest? I never had this problem with DS so not sure what to try. Ive done a little googling but just find conflicting info. Powder, NO powder, creams, oils... Just don't know what to try...

use bum cream on them after carefully drying the skin

What about baby lotion? Or like PP suggested, diaper rash ointment. I know when DH is out in the field he uses Dessedin (sp?) for chafing.

I just noticed the same thing on Emma. I think I might try butt cream.

My DD2 had that. Turns out it was thrush. A bit of nystatin cream helped. Or any kind of yeast cream, like monistat or vagisil.

Anyway, just wanted to offer another pov. I tried treating hers with bum cream and powder at first which made it worse, since the yeast fed on it. If you find it's not getting better you could try a yeast cream.

Heidi had a yeast infection in her diaper area, and the most telling sign was that it was very raw, but with red dots. If you see any red dots I would definitely use a cream for yeast or fungal infections. Hope it clears up for you soon,

Pretty much try everything that would go on a diaper rash... That's basically the same sensitivity. Try powder(I know you already did), butt paste, desitin, a&d, maybe vaseline? And ALWAYS keep it dry Smile Even if you have to always keep a little wash cloth or bib on her. And like the PPs said, if it is yeast, get a anti fungal cream like nystatin!
