small pimple turned into a blister

Using All Free and Clear with prefolds. Small pimple (just one) showed up on the hiney cheek. Within a few hours it was a dime sized blister. Where did that come from? Sensitivity to wetness? How should it be treated?

The dot that started may have been caused by alot of things, but it sounds like it was irritated by wetness. Was the diaper staydry?

We had something like that happen. I just put some neosporin on it for a few days and it cleared up.

Re: small pimple turned into a blister

If it gets any bigger, see a doctor pronto. MRSA infections can begin like this.

I was going to say the same thing- I would go to the pediatrician ASAP- I know a little boy that was in the hospital for 4 days because of what seemed like an innocent little pimple. It was MRSA. I also know another little baby that had it too- all started on the hiney and like a pimple-

MRSA used to be something you got at the hospital but now it's everywhere.

No stay dry. Just a prefold. No fleece liner.

Ya'll are scaring me with the MRSA stuff. Used Aquaphor and antifungal during the night. Looks a little better this morning.

I agree, sounds like staph (not neccesarily MRSA though, so don't freak too much yet). Definitely get it checked out promptly though. If it is staph you will need to disinfect the diapers by boiling and/or bleaching.
