My daughter decided to potty-train herself a week ago. She was sick 2 weeks ago and had diarrhea so she developed a bit of a rash. It didn't go away. Since Monday she's been diaper free all day at home and this "rash" has gotten worse.
We're not sure if it's a rash, eczema or really dry skin from her skin being exposed to air now.
We've tried a bunch of stuff (Diaper Cream, Glaxol Base, Oil on skin and in bathtub) nothing seems to work.
Could it be caused by her reacting to a food she ate? The first time I tried red wine I not only got hives but a rash that went from the front to the back in the panty region. Obviously she isnt drinking red wine lol but it could be something she ate or drank.
Could it be the toilet paper? When she went in her diaper, she probably didn't get wiped with TP each time she peed. Now that she is potty trained, she is wiping more often and it might be irritating her. Or, could it be a reaction to the undies she is wearing?
Ditto the other advice on yeast infections, etc too.
I know this is an old topic, but in case anyone else has this too, this happened to DD too, and she's been bare-bummed for months. I think she's getting carpet burn! Or reacting to stuff around the house.
I agree with checking on the possibility of yeast. If she's had diarrhea, I think it can lead to yeast infections. My daughter had yeast (mind you, she was in a diaper at the time), and plain old canestan worked wonders! Got a tub of it from the pharmacist.
