Our little guy, 18 months, has had a few sores on his bum for about 5 weeks now and I have tried everything I can think of to clear it up.
One of our other boys had a staph infection on his bum when he was little and it almost looks like that.
It's not a "rash" more like an little sore, than it clears up and another one starts. He's in cloth normally, but we switched him to disposible for a week and they got a little better, but didnt' go away. Now we are doing cloth during the day and disposible at night.
He shares diapers with his sister and a few brothers wear them overnight, and they don't have any problems
Jesus loving, homeschooling, gardening lover, devoted wife to a wonderful hubby and 10 kids, ages 13 down to 12.5 months . We are expecting number 11 due January 1st, 2015.
I'd take him to the doctor first. If they say it's "just a rash" then I would switch laundry soap, or start rinsing your diapers more. Washing soda effects some kids really really badly.
If I don't rinse my diapers enough and wash with something with washing soda Sebastian gets blisters on his penis. The one time I was using my own made soap for diapers his butt was SOO bad for a long time. Even if I use something with washing soda and his diaper leaks and it gets on his clothes and touches his skin he'll break out.
Did you try California baby? It's a thicker diaper cream that is ok for cloth. Coconut oil and CJ's doesn't do crap around here.
I was thinking it could be fungal as well. The only never-ending "mystery rash" we've dealt with was yeast. I just bought an anti-fungal that said for athlete's foot or jock itch and that did the trick. You can get a prescription cream, but I thought the over the counter anti-fungal worked just as well. It's worth a try anyway. If it is fungal you should see an improvement right away.
yup - i thought yeast as well. my one son used to have it so bad we had cloth diapers from a service and they had to 'treat' them specially for him. he used asteroid cream and a fungal cream, i think. i would go to the dr and make sure. if it is a staph infection, that is contagious. but then you know that already.....
