Hmmm, it's so hard to say. I am totally NOT a rash expert!
I would probably just leave it alone. If it gets really dry or itchy I might put a little natural ointment on it.

You could also ask yourself if you've changed soap, detergent, etc recently that she might be reacting to.

BTW, she is so freakin' cute!

my son has this kind of rash at times and he is sloppering a lot. I don't know if your daughter is. But it could just be from where the slopper or some sort of wetness is getting right there and causing her pores to block up. That is what it sort of looks like. I am no expert just trying to help.

Oh! We have switched to Tide detergent...maybe there's too much detergent in her clothes and it's activiating the enzymes when it gets wet! We use it on the dipes but I am using less and rinsing more than with the clothes.....

Thanks mamas!!

What do you recommend? I only have access to Walmart and a few pharmacies here locally.

Oh and thanks for your compliments

Well, it depends on the rash. My ds has a dry rash on his chin from drool. It is dry and red. I just put some lanolin on it-a very tiny amount. Cocoa butter and shea butter are also wonderful. The fewer ingredients the better.

If it's from the detergent hopefully it will go away on it's own after the residue is all rinsed out of her clothes.
