My son got a diaper rash a few weeks ago. It took several days but we got it to clear up. The strange part is that the worst of it was on the inside of his legs. :headscratch:

Yesterday I noticed that his legs were getting red again and then tonight I noticed that his legs are really red and kind of rough/scaly. What is this? Why would it be worse on his legs (like right where the diaper goes around his legs) than anywhere else? What can I use to treat it and what can I do to prevent it in the future?

Re: Rash?
Could he be sensitive to serging?

Re: Rash?
He usually wears pockets or AIOs during the day and fitteds or pre-folds at night, so I suppose it could be the serging or it could be something in the PUL or the lining in the pockets/AIOs. I wonder if I should try just one kind over the weekend and see what happens?

I put a bit of neosporin on him last night before bed. I have no idea if it's even OK to use with cloth, but I just wanted it to get better so I didn't care! This morning, his legs were only a little red, but the skin was peeling...almost like it would do after a sunburn. Could it be something in the detergent? I ordered Charlie's soap last night because I've heard good things about it.

Thanks for your help!
