butt rash help. pic.



What do you mamas think about the large spot? The inside dark red area is about the size of a pencil eraser. Yesterday that inner area was whitish and gooey. The lighter area around it is a little raised. Does this look like ringworm? All the other dots are what his rash usually looks like when it's about a week into healing.

Should I put anything on it or just let it dry out. Is coconut oil cloth diaper safe?

Thanks mamas!

Not ringworm. I would personally put something like neosporin on it only because open sores can get infected easily my ds had a site like that and it turned into a bacterial infection that required antibiotics(it's a long story but I just don't mess around with sores like that now)

Ouchie! Poor guy. We have never had staph but I would be concerned and maybe get that checked because it is open. Can I ask how you clean up between changes?

Re: butt rash help. pic.

We just use cloth wipes with water for changes and he gets a good scrubbing with soap in the morning shower. He only poops once in the morning before his shower so the poop is cleaned well.

He usually isn't rashy but it take about 2 weeks for them to heal when he does get one. Preschool somehow marked that they changed his diaper when they hadn't and he was in the same diaper for 5 hours...it's happened twice now. :/

Oh gosh! That is terrible. The fact that it is so slow to heal concerns me a bit. Can he get lots of airtime to help dry it out?

When my son got rashes like that (hasn't happened in awhile thankfully) it took a long time to heal.

I thought 2 weeks was a long time too, but only have friends who use sposies to compare to. I just figured it was because I never put anything on it since it doesn't seem to bother him.

He gets a couple hours of airtime everyday. More the last 2 days because he decided on his own that he's going to start using the potty!

Clotrimazole powder. Every hour or so.

That looks like staph. Was any of it ever raised?

I would put some neosporin cream on it (cream, not ointment)
