Re: possible herpes on a 2 y/o
Another vote here for Calmoseptine, that stuff is amazing. It's sold at Walgreens in the adult incontinence aisle. Definitely NOT CD safe, but it coats the area really well and protects from further irritation. I don't think it would burn, I used it on myself once.
It won't fix the underlying problem but it could help calm things down and keep baby comfortable.
