Can my baby's reflux and bad diaper rash be related?

...more. Babies with reflux often need medication. I have had good results with chinese medicine and reflux in babies. Look for a practitioner in your area. Y9u may find through chinese medicine that the two problems are resolved with one herbal treatment.
Yes. Both reflect a digestive disturbance. Many babies lack proper colonization of the colon via birth and giving probiotics can make a big difference to diaper rashes. Maybe not to reflux. Typical diaper rash responds to typical creams like desitin, (zinc oxide diaper cream) zinc oxide, triple paste, a&d ointment etc. I have found through the years that if not better in three days think yeast and try an anti-fungal cream.

Frequent changes. Diaper rashes can be caused by chemical irritation by stool contents. Frequent changes of the diaper when rashes appear and allowing the area to air breathe by keeping the diaper off after a change, can be helpful.

Hi, Doc have doubted lactose intolerance my 9m old baby, started soy base milk but since then her poo has bcome green & she has got v bad diaper rash.

Soy based milk. The child' stools may be green because of the iron added to the formula. Diaper rash may be caused by loose stools caused by the soy based milk.
See below. The color of the stool is related to how quickly food and fluids move through the intestine and how much is reabsorbed, as well as how much bile is in the stool. The diaper rash may be temporary with the change in formula and stool consistency, but if it's lasting, you should call her doctor to discuss.
M.D. visit. If your daughter is growing and developing normally, on her current formula, the green color may not indicate an illness. If she is experiencing diarrhea, poor weight gain, her physician will order a further workup. The diaper rash may be secondary to a yeast infection or local irritation. I would recommend nystatin cream for a yeast infection, and keeping the diaper area clean and dry.
