Rash help please!

DD is EBF and every time she poos she turns bright red and often has raised welts on her skin anywhere the poo touches. She only poos without a diaper on at this point so it's not the diaper as my pedi suggested. (pedi cded her kids so she's not blaming cloth)

Her inner thighs are red or scaly/patchy most of the time as well as on her butt cheeks. I thought it was chafing so I started with powder. That didn't help. I've tried Cjs regular and plus as well as eczema lotion. It all sort of helps but not enough to clear it up.

I've cut out acidy foods to see if it helps and it does a little but it's still there/happening.

Any advice, mamas? I hate that it's hurting her!

I was having a similar problem with my LO and my Ped told me to cut out soy. I was already milk free at the time. It's very possible that its a food allergy unfortunately. Also what are you using for baby wipes? Anything but plain water gives my LO a rash.

Use aquaphor and a diaper liner. My guy had a horrid rash and it had nothing to do with diapers or diet. He simply had a sensitive rush and need a thick thick barrier. I also bath his bum nightly and leave him to air dry

Just using water so that's not it. I was thinking possible allergy too

The only rash cream that helps my little one is triple paste. We use so much that I buy it by the jar. It isn't cloth diaper friendly though so you should probably use a liner. I've been using it with just flats though and no liner without issues. As long as I only use a thin layer it seems to be washing out fine. It wasn't washing out of my microfiber liners though so I've ditched them for now and LO's bum is much better. I want to try coconut oil out though. Ive heard good things from other mamas, but I just don't know what kind you're supposed to use. I should also add that I've switched to breathable covers. I think some kids have sensitive skin. My son was sensitive, but not as bad as my daughter is now.

This was my next stop if the aquaphor didn't work.

I mainly use flats and wool on her. Good to know that I should be able to get away with no liners.

I tried coconut oil (virgin, unrefined) but it just made her worse. It did help my son when he was little. Funny that it's worked the same in our house too - my son was sensitive but my poor little daughter has it much worse.
