Rather than rubbing alcohol I would first try aloe vera or another topical known to soothe and address mild topical infections. ...Read more

Is using the hydrocortisone 1% cream for the heat rash a good idea? I used it for this heat rash on my right breast, but it's healing up well.
My daughter is almost 10 months and has a rash on her back. It looks like a heat rash, no redness. I meant to grab the hydrocortisone cream, but I applied the benadryl cream on accident. I immediately washed it off using baby wash and water.?
Sounds fine: Benadryl cream for a few minutes or more, on a 10-month old, should not have any noticeable effect. If such a baby has ill symptoms such as fussiness, fever, vomiting, diarrhea, or pain, she may have some other illness instead of just a heat rash.
