Re: possible herpes on a 2 y/o

When it was her, it was poop related. It just BURNED her poor bum no matter how fast I got that diaper off. A nurse suggested healing her gut and using baby probiotics in her milk. For her it was a miracle and everything was better as long as I used it.

When it was the diapers, it was that they simply were not clean enough. Sometimes you need to bleach them. For her, I needed to bleach regularly. I was washing cotton diapers using HOT water (like I can't put my hand in it hot), and using Tide, but if I went without the bleach for too long she'd get a rash.

Not sure if any of that will help you but thought I"d offer it up anyway. When her rashes were really bad they did well with a cotton prefold with no cover. I put her in the bath a lot too.
This is immensely helpful for me! My doctor just said my little one's rash was from having too acidic poop not a food allergy and so I basically couldn't do anything about it but change him as fast as possible. They eat yogurt some, but not routinely. I am ready to try anything to stop having his skin pealing off all the time.
