It seems Ash has an impetigo diaper rash. I thought it was strange that she is almost completely potty trained (diaper for bed, nap and if we go out) and wipes ok yet she had a painful looking rash of blisters. I tried A&D diaper rash cream when she was up and diaperless, but it didn't do a thing to help. Dr diagnosed her with impetigo, which is a staph infection. Her dry skin must have cracked slightly and allowed bacteria in. Anyone have experience with staph infections? She has her diapers and the baby has his, but I wash them together. I seriously can't afford to get sposies right now and strip the diapers. We have a pretty tough wash... 4 total washes, one with soap. Think this would keep the diapers ok?
She's in bed with undies under her diaper to keep the cream off it. I feel so silly. LOL

Personally I would start adding 1/2 cup of regular Clorox bleach to the first wash until the infection totally clears up. I am not afraid of bleach!
