Than has been dealing with a bad diaper rash for several weeks now. He normally wears cloth during the day and sposies at night, but I put him in sposies all the time while rashy so I can use whatever I want on it- normally Desitin. It got progressively worse for the first week. When he was no longer drinking cows milk (from the protein drinks he had been drinking) the rash got better, but never went completely away. It is now coming back. His bum is constantly red, and I'm assuming it is painful for him because he gets fussy and tries to roll away during diaper changes that involve wipes. The skin is beginning to get inflamed again, and it looks like sores are starting to appear. I've tried Desitin and Boudreaux's, as well as powder every change and changing more option. I'm concerned that this has been going on for so long, and that it doesn't go away completely.
What other ideas do you have?
What works for you diaper wearing babe?
What else could be irritating him?
When should I take him to the dr about it?
