Diaper rash baking soda

Common Questions and Answers about Diaper rash baking soda


Avatar f tn Just to clarify, cornstarch on their butt after cleaning them up and putting a new diaper on, only baking soda in the bath.
Avatar f tn And don't use baby wipes till its gone. They can irritate it. Use a wash cloth with warm water, and then dry him off, and let him be diaper free for a bit. Air, a&d, and baking soda bath has worked every time for my son at least.
290867 tn?1333569278 I am so upset my little baby boy is only 11 days old and has the worst diaper rash. I called his peditrition ( whom of which he hasnt seen yet) and he told me to wash him down there with Leaver 2000 and use a mixture of Neosporen and vasalene and he perscribed him a cream called Nystatin 30GM. Is anyone farmiliar with that cream? I am just really skepcital about using a perscription on a newborn espically when the peditrition has not even seen him yet. Maybe I am paranoid... Any thoughts?
176741 tn?1295233989 The rest of the suggestions are the same as mine. Baking soda in the peri bottle is a staple for diaper rashes. Colloidal oatmeal baths are gentle as well. Lots of naked time and some Lotrimin cream (any OTC yeast cream) and before you know it he should be good as new.
Avatar m tn My son is 2 months almost 3 and he has the worst diaper rash ive ever seen. It all started when he got some kind of virus which we had to go to emergency room for (cause of all the diarrhea) and they told us that it "just needed to run it course". well since hes had this virus (and its been for several weeks) hes had nothing but diarrhea and this diaper rash is steadily getting worse. It's at the point if you wipe it with anything it starts bleeding.
514349 tn?1272801633 After bathing, I like to sprinkle some body powder in certain areas that tend to retain moisture. On a recent doctor visit, she was shocked to see talc on my skin and said I shouldn't use it as it is implicated in certain cancers. I've hear that talcum powder might contribute to ovarian cancer, but wasn't sure this was one of those "urban myths".
Avatar f tn Plus I liked that it dropped a little baking soda in with each diaper to help stop smells. I love it and am going to use it with baby number 2 in a couple months!
Avatar f tn Sometimes diaper rash can get so serious the pediatrician should see it. If the child has open sores on his or her bottom, it might be time to call in at the doctor. I used to have pretty good luck with some of the creams meant for yeast-based infections, but you need to ask your pedi.
7656727 tn?1404157447 This time around we got the arm n hammer diaper pail(has not been used yet) and when you close it it closes and locks the bag closed and sprinkles baking soda I to the bag as its being closed. I love this idea and can't wait to us it.
Avatar f tn We have tried antibacterial ointment, antifungal ointment, all diaper rash cream, corn starch, baking soda, changing diaper brands. I'm sick of this. I feel so bad for the little guy, it obviously bothers him, we have to keep him in pants or he tries to dig at it. His doctor said we can't run any tests until it blisters or has puss to collect for samples. Two other doctors said it was any yeast infection, but it's clearly not or the cramps would have done the trick.
475039 tn?1208486656 take her to see her pedi. Having diarrhea for that long could result in dehydration. As for the diaper rash, since she is going that often, I wouldn't wipe her if I were you, instead wash her lil bum with luke warm water and pat it dry. Then apply a thick layer of A&E oinment. If you keep at it, it should get better soon. But def. see her pedi for the diarrhea.
Avatar f tn Baking soda baths. It helps dry out the rash. Disolve a cup in sink full of water and hold him in it for a while. Don't use baby wipes, use wash cloths until the rash is gone. The wipes can irritate the rash more.
Avatar f tn As for diaper rash, various things. Make sure that bottom us dry before putting diaper on and that will help. We use butt cream most of the time but have used coconut oil, baths with baking soda and just air. Hope this helps.
796579 tn?1266432024 my 2 wk old son has such bad diaper rash, he has had it abotu a week and half, i have been using everything, desitin, butt paste, etc. it is so bad that now it looks like he has bumps or blisters up around the base of his penis, and like the skin is peeling on his bum and around his scrotum!!is this normal sounding for diaper rash in boys? any advise? dr. says try antifungal creams or powder. i've been told to stay away from OJ and tomato sauces bcuz of acid, any other suggestions?
187316 tn?1386356682 Since Aspen was born we have been struggling with a diaper rash. I've done everything I can think of to clear it up as well. I change her diapers as soon as they get a little wet or dirty, I let her air dry during the day, I've used A&D ointments, desitin (or however you spell it) and bottom butter from palmers. I even had the doctor prescribe her ointment for a yeast infection to see if that would clear it up.
Avatar n tn Baking soda/powder baths or you can put baking soda/powder or corn starch on the rash it will suck out the heat. I get prickly heat rash every summer and the cool bath with baking soda helps tremendously. Good luck I know it *****!
290018 tn?1240365868 One thing that works the best and I use almost everyday is desetin diaper rash cream, or any diaper rash cream period, I have vaginal itching a lot when pregnant, and I have always used the diaper rash cream and it seemed to work the best, especially because it is so safe to use. Good luck!
284738 tn?1283106819 Use your peri-bottle with a baking soda water solution to rinse her bottom after she has a bowel movement or wet diaper. Place an absorbent towel under her and gently rinse her bottom with the solution. Water can actually sting (think of the pain when you apply water to a skinned knee or a cut) but making it more alkaline with baking soda drastically reduces that pain. Do not use anything to wipe the skin unless necessary, that further irritates it. Even washcloths can be painful.
Avatar f tn t know if it is diaper rash or not, but he has a big red splotch on his bottom like diaper rash, only it is very red and a little splotchy. He has a low-grade temp of 99.5 and has since yesterday. The nurses on the phone suggested a 20 minute bath in baking soda... didn't work. They suggested putting vaseline on a rectal thermometer and moving things around up there- that idea I didn't do because well, that just doesn't sound right.
Avatar f tn Google natural homemade deodorant for sensitive skin...my sis started getting a rash from too much baking soda too. She uses way less in there and is fine now and says the deodorant still works well. To poster above ^^, there's a bunch of questionable ingredients in Deodorant (and creams, make up, bodywashes) they are not proven to harm a baby through breastfeeding but some people like to play it safe.
4528412 tn?1357069833 You can put her in the tub with warm water and baking soda a couple times a day, change her diapers very often, use your diaper rash ointment every time and try to keep her as dry as possible. Also, try to leave the diaper a little loose so some air can get in. Simply try to keep her dry and give it a couple days. When it comes to the diarrhea, if she is on milk based formula and is vomiting as well she may need a soy based formula, my daughter did.
676912 tn?1332812551 D and baby powder, anyone know what else can make a diaper rash go away? DS has had one for three days now, and cries the most heartbreaking cry when I change his dirty diapers, because it hurts him....I don't know what else to do.
1165284 tn?1323455476 It gave him diaper rash which I was able to get rid of with zinc based diaper rash ointment. but now he has a sensitive & red scrotum & inner upper thighs. What should I put on this to ease the pain? I know it is caused by the antibiotic but he is having alot of discomfort. I would like to know the best thing to help him because I don't want to put the wrong thing on him & make it worse. Help please.
Avatar f tn If you don't want to use anything with zinc in it Aquaphor or just Vaseline works really well. If it's a really bad rash put a tablespoon of baking soda in the bath water, it really helps but be careful it makes baby more slippery.
Avatar f tn I left him with a family member overnight for my birthday, and he came home with a horrible, and I mean HORRIBLE diaper rash. Took him to the hospital and they said yeast. I don't think that's right! The treatment didn't work. He also is having many frequent loose mucus filled stools, which is unusual for him, which I think is what's agitating it, an extreme amount of gas, and his burps smell straight like pure sulphur.
Avatar n tn s recommended for diaper rash...rash cream, baking soda in the bath, rinsing the wipes before using them or just using wet paper towel, etc. You name it, we've done it. But I feel that the rashes are just a side effect of the real problem, the frequent BMs. I'm not sure how the yeast infections fit into the scenario. But those are relatively easy to treat with an anti-fungal cream.
Avatar f tn My daughter had horrible diaper rash and it would come out of no where. Just change her diaper often abs keep her bottom as dry as possible. Even if you lay her on a towel bare bottom so she had plenty of time to dry out also..
