: : So it's not yeast... and it could be a reaction to the stuff in the diapers you use... or maybe food he's eating.
: : To rule out diapers, try using only cloth diapers for a couple of days. Yes - you will have to change more frequently. And YES - You will have some really ponderous messes on your hands. But hey, it's all in the name of the "scientific" experiments, right?
: : Maybe it's worth a try?
: His rash is looking a lot better since using the new cream and cornstarch on top. Also, I am letting him take one nap a day without a diaper and letting him have play time (about an hour) without a diaper. It can get messy, but I'll do anything to make him feel better and help his rash heal. I still don't know what caused it in the first place but I am no longer using wipes and am currently using Huggies. Pampers seems to have a scent.
: Maybe I will try cloth. Wait until he starts fruits next week, then I'll probably have another problem with rashes because of the acidity, then he'll be teething next. Oh no!!
Did the Dr. tell you to stay away from foods until, the rash is clear? I think(sorry if not right) that Debbie said to hold off anyfood until the rash clears just to rule out allergy of food and I agree. Right now as long as he is getting Formula or breast milk it should be okay.(just to rule out foods as cause) what a shame!! and I'm with you on the no diaper issue,!! what a mess!! but you have to do what you have to do.!!LOL!!! bye for now!!
