Diaper rash epsom salt

Common Questions and Answers about Diaper rash epsom salt


159354 tn?1286371288 ) One day, I thought to myself that why don't I used the Epsom salt with the basin to help him with the rash ? I put Epsom salt in the small basin and let him sit in there for about few minutes (he loves it since he can splash the water around.) Surprisingly, the rash completely goes away after doing twice comparing to many failed attempts in the past with the diaper rash ointments. I'm not sure if it has to do with the Epsom salt or what. You can try and let me know if it helps.
Avatar f tn So, I have a little girl who is almost 8 months and she STAYS with a diaper rash. She has had the same one for well over a month now and we have done EVERYTHING. She's been to the pediatrician twice, we change her diaper every single time it's dirty, we've used Boudreauxs regular and maximum strength butt paste and we've used desitin. We've also used Johnson's baby powder AND Caldesene powder in the pink and blue bottles. We've cut her fruits from two whole containers a day to maybe one a day.
Avatar f tn acidophilus (twice a day) flax seed oil capsules (once a day) dandelion root tincture (three times a day) nettles tea (drank this 2-3 times a day) used diaper rash cream (with 40% zinc) for temporary relief until rash subsided. I got all of the above items at Whole Foods. Best of Luck!!
Avatar f tn The only relief I get is in a warm bath or if I separate my cheeks. I've tried a diaper rash cream that is compared to Desitin, thinking it might soothe it and it burned worse. Plus it was really hard to get off, which hurt worse. I thought maybe to try Preparation H (it was a kind that said "Cooling" on it), thinking that would soothe it and that felt like I'd taken a match to my sore skin. I had to take it off immediately. Definitely did not "cool" as promised.
Avatar n tn They are all in the same house and are very careful w/ detergents and soaps and such. The only thing they have found helpful are soaks in epsom salt and then they use apricot oil. By no means am i suggesting this is what you have or what you should do, I am only sharing my story w/ you. I hope your suffering will find an end. Best wishes.
Avatar n tn In our area we also have pharmacist compounders that take different things and put them together to make a remedy, they are especially great at things like diaper rash, etc. Also I am not sure about this for yeast infection but I know that Crisco (yes the cooking grease) works well for diaper rashes. NOT the oil but the actual can of white grease. It offers a layer of protection against the diaper and keeps the urine and poop away from their skin.
Avatar f tn I talked to a few of my friends and one adviced me to put vasaline on is and it should heal in a few days. Id been using diaper rash cream prior to that and it did nothing. Its been almost a week and I'm still pretty sore. I haven't had anal sex since but have had intercourse up until 4 days ago. Is there anything that I can do to make this heal any faster?
Avatar m tn Then I used epsom salt bath... soothed for a bit but made my butt dry and easily crack. What worked was Zincofax (baby zinc oxide diaper rash cream) mixed with Canesten (yeast infection cream). The itch was pretty much gone within the week!
Avatar n tn I tried neosporin to help the chafing. And then I came up with the brilliant plan to use desitin the product for baby diaper rash. I figure if it was mild enough for a baby it would be okay for me. After using the desitin my vagina almost swollen shut. Once I realized the desitin was causing more irritation I washed it off after having been at work for 8 hours. After all that I told my friend and she told me to soak in epsom salt.
Avatar f tn for the last few months i have had paper like cuts near my vagina, i have tried many things, like epsom salt bath's, baking soda baths, vinegar water, rubbing alcohol/alcohol wipes and a few different creams like, a&d, aveno diaper rash cream, and Vaseline. the only thing that helps me is after using the bathroom and wiping i take an alcohol wipe and wash it (it burns and hurts but it cleans it out) then i use a little vaseline and it makes the itching stop and the cuts are healing.
Avatar f tn Coconut oil, pure lanolin, monostat 1% cream, aquaphor, neosporin, epsom salt soaks, diaper rash cream, A & D ointment. Doc gave me the yeast infection pill and myclog2 cream. then tramador for pain, which led me to throwing up and tripping out for 2 days. the steroid cream helped the redness and swelling, but i was still itchy and having shooting nero-pains. All above treatments gave VERY TEMPORARY relief so I just kept attending needs. I prayed!
Avatar f tn As she got the boils at the beginning - we treated by washing the area, doing apple cider and Epsom salt baths and keeping colloidal silver and tea tree oil on the wound. That helped them from becoming infected. And one more thing - she always had sensitive skin. She has always been allergic to avocado oil lotions and perfumed lotions. We also knew she was allergic to latex - we found out when she was little with Band-Aid reactions.
Avatar m tn This is the #1 used diaper rash cream for babies for a reason. The main ingredient is Zinc Oxide, at 40%, which is a skin protectant, and also works for deodorizing and even is antibacterial. If you want to avoid the fragrance that Desitin has, you may be able to just buy zinc oxide powder online (used by people that make their own lotions and sunscreens), but I have not tried this.
612551 tn?1450025775 I continue to struggle with my Westie's irritated feet. Foot baths in Epsom Salt seems to help, but he continues to lick and the feet he licks the most are the worst... I think it possible most of the problem is his licking. I have tried to divert his attention with a chewy and that lasts for about 20 seconds...he gets bored easily. I am looking for something I can put on his paws that will taste bad and discourage his licking.
Avatar n tn sort of expensive but again, many uses. i have heard in other posts in the past about these paper cuts and someone suggested a diaper rash ointment like desitin. have you had a recent OBGYN/annual appt. about this?
Avatar n tn I was to the very very painful point where I could not move without excruitating pain and was almost ready to go to the ER for some relief. I had soaked in epsom salt a few hours ago giving very minimal relief. I gave the website listed above by amy507 of home remedies a try and found one I was willing to try that seemed logical to me. I used the baking soda mixed with a little bit of water (made it like a thick paste).
Avatar n tn It's not THAT annoying, it's just when I think about it then it gets a little itchy. I put on some mild cream actually made for baby diaper rash, helping a little, but has this happened to anyone else???
Avatar n tn I do find that moisturising regularly helps and I have started using Zinc lotions (used for diaper rash) which seem to soothe them a little, but even so, they start to itch. Does anyone else notice that they're worse in cold weather? I find that when the weather is warm and I'm in the sun, the itching usually stops. If anyone else can add anything, I would love to get more help with this, as it's causing me to wake up at night and bleed!
Avatar m tn 2. THE POWER OF SALT Why does salt water work? Simply put, germs need water, and salt takes the water away from the germs. There are two kinds of saline solution. Isotonic solution has the same concentration of salt as the human body. Hypertonic solution is saltier than the water in the human body. Infected and inflamed secretions, like the ones in your sinuses when you have sinus infections and colds, are excessively sticky.
Avatar n tn That has worked well in helping with the redness and itching. I have also used something called TriplePaste, which is like a diaper rash cream, that ultimately did NOT work for me, but helped a friend of mine who has eczema on her hands. I have also used something called emollient night cream from Mary Kay. It worked okay too but I thought it was too expensive for the tiny bottle that it came in and it was more oily than what I wanted. But the Gold Bond worked okay.
Avatar n tn had only had 2 boyfriends in my life and 2 years ago got a very weird itchy rash down below.........doctors had no clue what it was.........possible diagnosis were extreme dry skin, excema, psoroasis and because of my sexual history of only 2 monogamous partners they though "no way it could be an std" well thank god one of my nurse practitioners said a rash should not last almost 2 years, itching on and off...........
Avatar n tn i had the same issue noone had any answers for me either but this is what i tried and it worked.. -take a wet piece of towel paper put salt on it and exfoliate lip -pat on a little hydrogen peroxide with a q tip or whatever -put abreva on the area i avoided touching the area with my fingers tho bc i was scared it was contagious...
Avatar n tn Does anyone here have a rash which goes along with the itching? When I get out of the shower, or if I'm sweaty, I have big red patches on my legs and smaller round patches on my arms and occasionally shoulders too. They itch like crazy for around 30 mins. Antihistamines are taking the edge off a little but the rash is still there. And why would i suddenly get this in the last two months when it's never bothered me before?
Avatar n tn For those of you who have burning during sex I'm not sure if it will irritate your man's penis or not if you put it on you so there is no burning during sex but he could try putting a small amount on him to see. Another great thing for a longer lasting affect is Desiten diaper rash cream or some kind, but desiten works great it like oragel will also numb you & you can even put it inside a little ways.
Avatar n tn i have been going to the dodtor for two years with this now but he keeps on tellin me i do not have scabis and gives me creams and lotions but t never seems to go away. i get red rash arund the eyes . he told me t will go away do not worry but it comes back every month . i have blisters on my chest he did nothing i have itchy neck he says its also nothing my neck has spots on but look lke blisters .
Avatar n tn Desitin regular (just the regular cream) diaper rash cream stops the itch completely but need to apply as needed.
Avatar n tn mine usually take about a week to go away and also try taking a bath in Epsom Salt you can get it at walmart or walgreens or where ever really it will help cleanse it!
Avatar n tn Tried everything, gold bond-jock itch-acne soap-baby powder-diaper rash med-no soap and more. Went to a dermatologist and she took a sample at its worst and prescribed me a pill not any kind of lotion. The pill was a hard-core potassium and antibiotic. She said it was stress that eats up potassium in our body and for some reason guys get this in their groin area. Disappeared in less then a week :) and has been gone since.
