Diaper rash medical term

Common Questions and Answers about Diaper rash medical term


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.
1950374 tn?1332384136 d let her air dry a bit and put on a dry diaper. When needed, we used a diaper rash cream, or let her have some tummy time without a diaper on a blanket we didn't mind soiling. This time, we're having a boy. I asked a friend about caring for the foreskin and she said that she just pulls it back a bit and wipes with a wet cloth each day. If you're not sure you're doing the best job you could, feel free to ask the postpartum nurses.
Avatar n tn I would try Desitin, the same ointment used for a baby's diaper rash. You may have diaper rash without the diaper. Let us know what happens.
9182722 tn?1403784024 The Vaseline is a lubricant to help keep his bottom dry to prevent more rash, the fungal/yeast creams help because many times baby will have test contributing to the rash(yes even boys) and the diaper cream helps with the rash too obviously and the cortisone helps with inflammation (don't use too much it's a steroid), I would also add you should call and confirm(quick call should be fine) with his doctor that this will be okay for your baby (I sing know your baby or any medical conditio
Avatar n tn My daughter got a diaper rash last month when she was 10 months old - it looked really bad. I took her to doc and she said it's a yeast infection and prescribed a cream. I used it on her for almost 1 month. It went away, but now she's 11 months old and it's seems like the rash is creeping up every time she goes poopy - even if I change her 2 mintues later (right after she's done). What could it be?
Avatar n tn I put on some organic lotion I purchased at the healthfood store that I have used before. I put it on my legs and all over my face. I got a rash, but only on my cheeks and forehead. Ironically, the only place I got the rash is where my headache has been. WEIRD. I tried it again and the same thing occured. Doctors also think I have fibromyalgia/cfs.
1194973 tn?1385503904 Does anyone know if a diaper rash can itch? Or is it possible a yeast infection can? It seems slightly silly to call her doctor about it, so I was hoping to get an answer from you ladies.
6822962 tn?1396329659 Diaper rash are really inevitable especially when you always use diaper as your baby's nappies. Also, I think diaper rash usually comes when its really hot weather and then you let your baby wore a diaper. One thing I observed with my baby is when I was not able to change her diaper for how many hours, it caused her diaper rashes. Most diapers, regardless of brands will most likely cause rashes.
Avatar f tn Could just be a regular diaper rash, butif it's not going away it could be a yeast diaper rash. If regular diaper cream doesn't clear it up within a few days, talk to his doctor. You may need a special topical cream (possibly Nystatin cream) if it's a yeast diaper rash. You could try a little cornstarch to keep his bum dry and change his diaper often. Also, keep it clean and give it some time to air dry too.
Avatar f tn Can anyone explain this medical term?

284738 tn?1283106819 t want to take her and them tell me its just really bad diaper rash.. a couple days ago she had a little bleeding around her rectum .. it was coming from the skin and not inside of her... is this just a case of really bad diaper rash?
Avatar m tn I agree i dont think it sounds like abuse....i think shes being a typical 2 year old, she may have a diaper rash and doesnt want you to make it sting, i know when my son has a diaper rash he sure as heck doesnt want me wiping him, he squirms and yells at me and everything else. i think thats all it is.........i dont know if shes old enough to relate the two. im not sure though, i would be concerned too. i would just keep my eye on the situation.
676912 tn?1332812551 When my kids would get really nasty diaper rashes, I used any diaper rash ointment I could get my hands on, and then put Vaseline over it. If it is a yeast infection, some Vagisil would do the trick. Good luck!

4654179 tn?1595183520 My poor baby has suffered on and off with diaper rash. I've changed diaper brands and have been using Destin religiously. Any ideas that could help?
3930380 tn?1357887113 Make sure to keep her clean and dry. Bath her before bed time and use burst bees diaper rash ointment. With my daughter she rarely got diaper rash but when she did it sees nothing would make it go away we literally bought a bottle of every ointment and burst bees was the only thing that would make a difference. Walmart and target have it.
Avatar f tn Just wondering what other moms did for diaper rash? About day 5 my daughter got it and three days later we are still trying to heal it. We have powders and creams for diaper rash, which do seem to help. I guess I'm wondering if there's more I can do or should be doing other than changing frequently and using the products?

Avatar f tn My baby has a diaper rash. We change her diaper all the time. It seems like I have tried everything. it will go away for the most part. What works for you?
Avatar f tn Sorry your little one is having diaper rash. My first daughter got diaper rash when I tried being fancy and bought her Huggies Supreme. I realized she was allergic to it and I switched her to LUVS. I've always used this powder call Caldesene, its in a pink bottle and you can find it in any CVS or Walgreens. It is so good it formulated to keep moisture away from their skin. You can use it on prickly heat too.
