Rash Not In Diaper Area
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer

In severe cases, put the baby on absorbent sheets and don't use a diaper at all until the rash is gone. It is messy, but it works. If the rash is already severe, you will need help from your babies doctor. ...Read more

If my baby is getting rashes everywhere except his diaper area, could it be the detergent i'm using?
Yes: Since it doesn't involve the diaper area unless you have cloth diapers that have been washed in the same detergent it could be a contact dermatitis related to the laundry detergent. It is more likely an atopic dermatitis (eczema) which is an excessive dryness of the skin. The reason it is not in the diaper area is because the diaper area is usually moist. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
What are tha causes of fungal rash on my baby's diaper area? How would i know its a fungal rash compared to ordinary rashes
Red and itchy: Everyone has yeast that lives on the skin. But yeast particularly likes places that are damp and moist - like under a diaper. Keeping the skin cool and dry will help. You can also try an over-the-counter antifungal like Clotrimazole cream 3 times a day and see if that works. Yeast rashes are usually very red, itchy, and spread with "satellite" small red bumps away from the rash center. Good luck. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
My 6 month old has a rash everywhere but the diaper area. It's not the detergent. What else could it be? Is it possible her new clothes caused it?
Many possibilities: Think about whatever touches babies skin in those areas that does not touch the diaper zone. The sizing (color stabilizers) in newer clothing, the fabric softener or dryer sheet, lotions or ointments you might apply, etc. You often figure this out when you exclude allot her possibilities.It is unlikely to be a food issue as that can effect every skin surface. ...Read more

Rash: Rashes can be from many things in the diaper area. If baby has other scaly patches, he might have eczema/atopic dermatitis or psoriasis. Sensitivities to the diaper occasionally cause irritated areas. Typical diaper rash from being in stool too long is usually more red, not as scaly. If unsure of the cause/treatment, see your doctor. Rashes cannot be diagnosed on the phone. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
