Horrible rash- Never Seen it so bad!

DD blessed DH and I by sleeping through the night last night, but when she woke up she had a surprise- Poop! She never poops during the night, in fact for several months now she reliably poops at about 9am. I'm not sure how long the poop was there, but she slept for about ten hours, and now her bum (which was previously clear) is covered with raw, open, oozing blisters, and a rash I've never seen the likes of.
I can tell it hurts her badly because when I wipe it she screams and stares right into my eyes like I just did something awful. I let her lay naked and I played with her for about 15 minutes, but we have a WIC appointment this morning, so I had to dress her. It must really feel awful, because when I picked up her legs to slide the diaper beneath her she started crying instantly, signing, 'stop' and 'all done,' and shaking her head no. I feel just terrible for her, especially since she'll be in the carseat a lot today.
My question is this:
I don't have liners or disposables, but is there anything I can do to help her with this rash? I'll air her out as much as possible and change her much more frequently to keep her dry, but we'll be on the go most of the day. Is there anything else you'd reccommend I try for her relief?

Are you nursing? You can express some bm on to your hand (or directly on to her bum) and that will help clear it up super fast. Poor baby

I use equal parts triple antibiotic ointment, antifungal and balmex and it clears it up. It will stain your dipes though. I'm sorry she has a rash Those are no fun to deal with

Thanks so much for the advice. I will definitely try the bm at the next change, and the ointment if that doesn't help.

I have found that Johnson pure corn starch powder works great. It was suggested to me by the pharmacists and t works great. My DD gets horrible rashes like that when she teethes (which she is right now working on 4 molars and 4 others ) .

I use Aquaphor on rashes. It really helps clear them up and keep the bum dry. My ds gets HORRIBLE rashes after he poops- it's like his poop is toxic to him! I'm so sorry your LO is hurting.

Re: Horrible rash- Never Seen it so bad!

We had the exact same thing happen here last week and my dd reacted the same way. We used Better Butt cream (I think by Northern Essence?) at every change and just changed her frequently. It took almost 3 or 4 days to clear up completely. Good luck and I hope your dd is feeling better soon
