Vasaline fine: I find unscented vasaline a great barrier skin treatment for kids prone to diaper rash.It may not help heal skin that is already broken down but does prevent it from worsening while the body heals. Cornstarch is often used by those who like the drying effect, but i find it more food for germs than a treatment.Once it is moistened by sweat it feeds pleanty of skin germs.I avoid it. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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.
