Baby 6 Week Rash
No : Steroid cream should never be used on a baby's diaper rash - or anywhere on a baby's skin without first seeing a doctor for diagnosis. Diaper rash is best treated by zinc oxide creams - put them on VERY THICK. You are not rubbing them in to treat the rash, rather, you are creating a barrier to prevent further irritation. ...Read more

Many causes: If it is truly diarrhea ( and not just 1 or 2 loose stools a day), it can indicate an infection (bacterial, viral, parasite ), a food allergy, diet (like too much juice).

6 year old finished 10 days of amoxicillin 24 hours ago. Now has red non-raised rash on arms and legs, bothering her much. Is she allergic?
I wouldn't: I consider this product more an airway irritant than health aid for any kid under 6 years of age. An infant has partial dependence on their nasal airway for breathing and any fragrance, pleasant or not, can plug them up. Any medicinal quality (the medicine smell) is more myth than real at any age.The indians used pine pitch to scent their sweat lodges, and this product mimics the practice. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

"Regular"?: Dairy? Skin? No. Diaper rash cream (like desitin (zinc oxide diaper cream) / buttpaste / antimonkeybutt / gold bond / etc.) would be reasonable to try for a couple of days.

Many Possibilites: A baby wearing too many layers of clothing will sweat. Your baby only needs one extra layer of clothing compared to an adult. Also babies are very sensitive to heat and humidity.
