Newborn diaper rash...

DD has had a rash on her bum (around her anus) basically since she was born. It's always been red and irritated. It bleeds lightly, off and on. She's exclusively BF. I was told by the nurses at the hospital when she was born that the rash was from my hormones leaving her body. The nurse at our doctor's office said something similar. I keep lathering on the rash cream. It doesn't help at all. She'll be two weeks old tomorrow and this is really getting old. I just want to give her some relief. I'm so tired of seeing blood on baby wipes. I know she's got to be so sore. I seriously hate changing her diapers because I know I'm hurting her. Has anyone dealt with anything similar? Any advice anyone might have is very welcomed! TIA
