I was using the Clean Breeze Tide. I figure the BG detergent is worth a shot. Worst case scenario it doesn't work and I switch back to Tide or whatever. That's why I am so puzzled- it's like nothing I do helps it. I was hoping the sposies would clear it up to give her some relief. I can't believe her skin is just SO sensitive!

Re: My DD has a rash no matter what I do.

Yeah youd think if it was the detergent it would clear up with sposies. What kind of soap do you use to bathe? I had been using burts bees then switched to california babies and dd got really rashy after baths. Narrowed it down to the soap. It has some scent and the burts bees doesnt...so thats all i could think it was.

I hope u figure it out.

We have been using Dr. Bronner's baby mild but haven't been using any soap lately bc I was afraid it would aggravate her rash.

Thanks! I will be sure to update here if I do!

Have you tried bleach in the wash? That is what cleared up rashing for us. I do 2-3 T in the dispenser and 2-3 rinses to get it out.

I also found that Pampers sensitive wipes helped clear things up. I don't use them all the time but they do seem to work for us.

Are you having any rashing on other parts of the body?

Re: My DD has a rash no matter what I do.

I usually put virgin coconut oil twice a day. Does not harm the diaper. CO is very good at preventing rashes.
I also use probiotics myself.

Re: My DD has a rash no matter what I do.

When my DD1 had a rash that just wouldn't go away, I resorted to loosely fastened prefolds with no covers and some diaper free time. This was the only way I could clear up very stubborn rashes.

To do this though, you need a large stash of prefolds, and be ready to change CONSTANTLY. I found that my DD was peeing every 15 minutes during the morning hours! So there were a lot of diaper changes. Later in the day I found she peed less often. So right after a pee, I would let her have some diaper free time to really let her air out. For each change I would fasten the diaper on very loose, but not loose enough that pee could run down her leg My goal was to keep as much air next to her skin as possible.

After just a day or two of this I saw marked improvement. Then I made the mistake of putting her back in PUL pocket diapers too soon. It was as if her skin needed time to truly heal. So I did it again and waited another week or so until I tried her regular diapers again. And I found that she could handle them again! Yay!

So if it is possible for you to do this, I would give it a try. Sometimes I think that skin just get hypersensitive after being wet and having fabric right up against it after a while - especially if you are dealing with sensitive skin. The skin just needs a break from regular diapering to fully heal and to be able to handle diapering again.

Hope you can figure out how to heal her rash

I was bleaching every wash, about the same amount as you use I thought it would help. It's funny because I have the Pampers sensitive wipes right now!! No rashing on any other parts of her body, which is weird. The ped at one point said eczema.

Thanks!! She has gotten a lot of diaper free time lately but I'll have to do more.

She just woke up and DH changed her and it is FINALLY looking better! We used some hydrocortisone and lanolin on it last night (I think...) I am almost scared to put her back in cloth when it's gone!

First, make sure you're doing a HOT wash or rinse after your detergent cycle

Second, pat her dry with a dry cloth!

Ds was very rashy in sposies & food/wet rashy sometimes in cloth. Using cloth wipes & patting him dry plus making sure the detergent rinsed out well was the trick

Thanks! I am hoping this is the last rash we deal with
