Im a nanny and the baby has a bloody diaper rash! im assuming from food alergys.  What is the best way to take care of that?

Bloody diaper rash : Does not necessarily mean food allergy. Commonly it is from sensitive skin, constant irritation from wet and dirty diapers, loose or diarrheal stools. Too much acid. Best thing to do is neutralize acid with an antacid like maalox applied to the diaper areas where it is excoriated and raw. You will see amazing results. If w other signs: symptoms, see pediatrician for treatment. ...Read more

How can you tell if your baby has an allergic reaction to diaper rash cream?

How can you tell if your baby has an allergic reaction to diaper rash cream?

Patch test: You can check just about any product for skin sensitivity/reaction/allergy by doing a patch test. If you place a dab of the material on the fabric part of a bandaid & place it in a location where it won't be disturbed. (back of a baby or underarm of older kid) leave it on overnight, if no reaction within that time frame the product is likely safe to use over long periods. ...Read more

Breastfed 3 month old has eczema, gas and occasional diaper rash. No dairy has helped but he still has episodes. What else should I eliminate?

Family Hx?: Many times eczema is a form of hereditary dry skin in an infant with a family history of allergies etc, so look at family history of allergies, asthma and /or itchy dry skin.
