Can Bactroban Cream Be Used To Heal A Diaper Rash
My baby has a really bad diaper rash can I use bactroban (mupirocin) cream on it? I'm using sudocream
Agree w Dr. Ferguson: For diaper rash keep baby's skin clean & dry. Change diaper as soon as it's soiled or wet. For healing allow baby to go without diaper for periods of time so affected area can air out. Avoid tight diapers or airtight covers over diaper. Meds your Dr. Might recommend include antifungal cream (for fungus), a steroid cream (for significant inflammation) or an antibiotic (for bacterial infection.)See 1 more doctor answer
I smacked my face on the sidewalk two days ago. How do I heal the abrasions, swelling and scabs ASAP? Is using diaper rash cream safe?
Should diaper rash cream be used as a preventative measure? In other words, should I apply it so the baby doesn't get diaper rash, or to treat it?
Diaper rash: Yes, otc creams such as desitin, (zinc oxide diaper cream) a&d oint, etc. Can be used. Barrier creams or ointment to prevent irritation from the next wet or dirty diaper. Apply liberally after every change. Small amounts of cortisone if very red or irritated also can be used occasionally.See 1 more doctor answer
Not for fungus: Most diaper rashes are fungal in origin and fucidin cream is an antibiotic so it would not necessarily help the rash unless there was a bacterial component to it, irregardless of any open sores. If the open sores are infected, this cream can help and may also help prevent them from getting infected. Get the rash diagnosed to assure the best treatment if it persists. Good luck to you.See 1 more doctor answer
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.
Is there anything stronger or better than 45% zinc cream for a baby's butt that is red and very sensitive and often gets diaper rash?
Maybe: If your baby's diaper rash is not responding to zinc cream, it may need a prescription from your doctor. There are several different things that can cause diaper rashes in infants. I would recommend taking the baby to see your doctor to determine if a different type of treatment is needed based on the way the rash looks and that regular diaper cream isn't helping.
So I have a rash on my b*** I have you some creams like diaper rash creams this is not working it itches a lot and I have developed bumps now?
18m old, severe diaper rash anytime eats fruit. Allergic? Yes we change diaper frequently, use cream & pedialite. She loves fruit but d.R is so bad.
May be intolerant: Some kids have a deficiency of the enzyme needed to digest fruit sugar.If they eat it, it can pass through without being absorbed and lead to acidic stools that are loose and scalding in nature. These leave a diaper rash that looks like a 1st degree burn. The approach to this issue is to avoid any fruit in quantity. When she is older she may tolerate the fruit better, but while in diapers, avoid.See 1 more doctor answer
My gbaby, 9 mn/old 4th time to get a RX yeast inf cream bcause his diaper rash was so BAD! How does this happen? I've not seen this before&I'm WORRIED!
Very common: The diaper area is a warm, moist area, which is very prone to yeast. In order to combat this, of course use the prescribed medicine, but also change diapers frequently, use petroleum jelly or some other oil based ointment (I preferred Boudreaux's Butt Paste for my children) as a barrier, and bathe him or her every night. If they develop high fever or other concerning symptoms, call your doctor.
My 2 mont old baby has a bad diaper rash that is trying tobleed. Tried multiple rash creams but nothing works? What can I do to help with healing/pain?
Keep area open& dry: I would make sure the creams used are suitable for diaper rash, as the cream itself may be an irritant. Also, if the rash is fungal/candidal, then you would need an antifungal cream from your doctor. Sometimes, changing the brand of diaper and leaving the area open to air helps.See 2 more doctor answers
