Crazy but something that totally stumps me is diaper rashes!
DD only ever had one, but it lasted forever, several trips to the pedi and finally to the dermatologist before getting it cleared up!
Now DS has one and I can't seem to figure it out either. I think he's always had sensitive skin. Usually we use Aveeno diaper cream and Pampers sensitive wipes. Last weekend after having three days at home with him, I thought I had it looking pretty good - only used wash cloths/paper towels & water for wipes. Pedi recommended at one point to try triple antibiotic ointment at times and we also have a triamcinalone steroid cream to use as well.
Back at daycare on Monday and his butt has never looked worse!!! He screams when trying to wipe him for diaper changes. Daycare recommended switching diaper creams - I hadn't b/c my experience with DD was that none of them helped. But, took her advice and tried Burts Bees. This weekend I've given him time to run around diaper free and still no commercial baby wipes. I read to try baking soda baths and also bought some Aveeno Oatmeal baths. Today I picked up some maximum strength desitin.
I'm trying to change his diet a bit, cut out things that might make his poo acidy - oranges, etc? Trying to eat more yogurt, bananas, etc.
I'm so at a loss, it just doesn't seem to get any better?!! I feel awful for him!
I'm thinking I'll have to take him in since I can't figure it out but I feel so stupid that these diaper rashes always stump me :confused:
Anyone have advice????
