My son is almost 2 years old and has a terrile case of diaper rash. He has never had a problem before. Today when I picked him up from daycare she told me that he pooped 4 times (which is normal for him) but that after his nap he had really bad diaper rash.

Any tips for treating this? It's super red and looks blistery. He went to bed at 7pm and woke up an hour later because of his wet diaper bothering him, crying really bad. I have applied diaper rash cream, any other tips to sooth him?

dr sears has a really great page about the different types of diaper rashes and how to treat them.

I second the Dr. Sears website as well, that's where I went first when my son had his bad diaper rash to get information.

Triple Paste is the world's best rash cream. It's the only thing that worked on my toddler's occasional diaper rash.

Three words: Boudreaux's Butt Paste

My son had bad diaper rash for the past 3 weeks and up until last friday I had tried everything: Powder, Desitin, A&D Ointment. Nothing would heal it, until I got some of this stuff. It's amazing! His rash was 95% better overnight and gone by the next day. Now I use it to prevent the rash.

I second this stuff. My daughter had awful diaper rash, and I was trying everything *even what dr. sears says* and nothing was working :( I wasn't getting better or worse.. until I tried the butt paste. OMG the stuff is like gold.

Yes I know I sound like one of those cheesy endorsements, but the stuff really worked wonders on my daughters behind!!!
