What can cause bad diaper rash! Please help!?

Diaper rashes, types: Children are prone to rashes in the diaper region as a result of illness, recent antibiotic use, frequent diarrhea or chronic moisture under the diaper or underwear. There are different types of rashes, such as irritant rash, fungal infection or bacterial infection. Creams like Desitin (zinc oxide diaper cream) or A&D ointment should help. See your doctor if symptoms persist or worsen.

Please tell me can spilled formula cause a diaper rash?

Please tell me can spilled formula cause a diaper rash?

Likely not: If your child tolerates the formula well for feeding, then it is unlikely to cause a rash if spilled on the skin. However, it is possible to develop a contact dermatitis (or irritant rash) whenever something touches the skin - but very unlikely.

What brand of disposable diapers can cause a baby to have diaper rash more often?

What brand of disposable diapers can cause a baby to have diaper rash more often?

Diapers: I have 2 kids and I found that they did better with pampers and huggies vs. The store brands, as far as diaper rash goes. It's better to spend a little extra money...Pampers and huggies are better for the baby's skin and they also hold more, so that you have to deal with fewer "blow outs." diaper wipes can also cause a diaper rash, so water and soft paper towels are a good alternative. Good luck!

Is there a brand or size of disposable diapers can cause a baby to have diaper rash more often?

Yes: It is usually a function of the size of diaper. Too small of a diaper may invite more chemical irritation from the stool/urine due to contact with skin and retained heat/moisture.

Why does my daughter keep getting diaper rash if I put stuff to prevent one after every changing? Am I putting to much on her and causeing it myself?

Why does my daughter keep getting diaper rash if I put stuff to prevent one after every changing? Am I putting to much on her and causeing it myself?

Well, you could have: Contaminated the cream you're using, or it could be a yeast infection. Zinc oxide paste coats raw, weepy areas very well. Use disposable gloves when removing & applying the paste, to avoid getting staph from your hands onto skin or mucous membranes that are cracked or open. See her pediatrician. Always wipe front-to-back when cleaning urine & stool.

Didn't start my 6mo on cereal --veggies and fruits. Still taking 24-30 oz of formula. Do I need to give her cereal for iron? Rice caused diaper rash.

Yes: I would try to add other types of cereals such as oatmeal, barley, or high protein. now that your baby is 6 mos you can slowly start pureed tables foods as well. Spinach, broccoli, and beans can also provide some iron the cereals are an important source of additional protein

Diaper rash: If the diaper rash is severe enough, it can cause bleeding. Try a diaper rash cream with a lot of zinc oxide and see. If still blood, see your pediatrician

I sometimes get a bumpy diaper rash and small fissures accompany it. Could a yeast infection cause this? 13 days post sphinchterectomy, still happening

Yeast rashes: Surgery, illness, stress and certain medications place stress on our bodies, and can result in yeast infections. Yeast infections occur then the normal mechanisms to keep them at bay are compromised, and often present as red itchy bumpy rashes, occassionally with fissures and discomfort. Only a physical exam can accurately diagnose what sort of rash you have, so follow up with your doctor soon.

7m old low grade fever of 101.5 (day)103 (night).Two red spots on his cheek and sore on the roof of his mouth has a bit of diaper rash? Cause?

7m old low grade fever of 101.5 (day)103 (night).Two red spots on his cheek and sore on the roof of his mouth has a bit of diaper rash? Cause?

Hand foot, mouth dis: Hand foot and mouth disease is most likely. Causing sores on the palate, around the mouth, in the diaper area, and hands and feet, they look like red spots or canker sores (white discs with red around them). Fever and pain are possible. It's viral and runs its course. Pain control is key. If this doesn't sound like what your child has, get it checked.

What will clear diaper rash?

Depends: If it is an irritant diaper rash, involving buttocks, thighs, and not the skin crease, then desitin, (zinc oxide diaper cream) a7d, balmex, etc. If it involves the skin creases, spares the bum, and there are some red dots involving the area above the genitas, then it maybe a yeast infection.And lamisil, or lotromin will help.

How to take care of a diaper rash?

Diaper Rash: Ask your doctor if a diaper rash cream would be helpful. Zinc oxide or petroleum jelly-based products help keep moisture away from baby's skin when applied to completely clean, dry skin avoid using wipes that have alcohol or perfume. They may dry out or irritate the skin more do not use corn starch on your baby's bottom. It can make a yeast diaper.

Diaper rash will cornmeal really work

Diaper rash will cornmeal really work

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.)
