My baby has rashes at her diaper area. I've tried drapolene cream and made her use cloth diapers. But the rash is still there?

Anti fungal: You need an anti fungal cream. Diaper rashes come from the same type of organism as jock itch and athletes foot. Using a steroid cream alone will not cure it. Contact your doctor for a different cream. Also try letting your baby have some time without a diaper on to keep the area free of moisture and friction from the diaper itself. ...Read more

My husband has a wart on his hand and changed my newborn son's diaper -- can warts be spread to my son's bottom? He has a diaper rash as well.

Yes: Diaper rash may cause an impairment of skin barrier. Which in turn can be a portal of entry to infectious agents, including human papilloma virus that causes warts. Therefore, the answer is yes. Your husband should avoid contact of the wart with the skin of others and with the unaffected skin on his body, in order to prevent inoculation and auto-inoculation, respectively. ...Read more
