So are you using CC now or something else?
My LO doesnt seem to be bothered by the new rash either.... I just threw all his dipes in the wash with on;y Charlies than rewashed again with nothing Im going to do this with all his pocket diapers next. And see what happens..

Re: WTH? What is this rash????

my dd has a similar rash only it is more like spots down the middle almost to her woo woo and that same red blotchy right on it and her bum. I had switched to CC and used the lavender with no problems except a little spottiness. When I used the lemon scent all h3ll broke loose on her bum! I am stripping her dipes as we speak (er, write )

Re: WTH? What is this rash????

Could be an allergy to the fabric... but it also kind of looks like yeast. My dd has a rash simular to that and I thought maybe it was eczema because it sort of looked like it... all dry and red... but she hadn't been wearing a dipe.... the Dr said it was yeast and gave us a perscription.

UHG. It cleared up during the day today and then this evening it flared up again. It was really only were the elastic was around her legs. I'm wondering now if the detergent isn't rinsing out all the way and is getting built up in the elastic.
I put her to bed in a prefold. Hopefully it will clear up during the night.

Re: WTH? What is this rash????

my son has a similar rash now- its happened once before.... he is teething now so I think that is the reason. I just use liners, aquaphor, and lots of changing and it seems to be helping.

UPDATE: I took my DS who has the same rash to the doctor and he seems to think its related either the diapers or the CC I have been using He said if it were yeast there would be round satellite lesions and his rash doesnt look like that. Does your LO's rash lool like that IRL?

Re: WTH? What is this rash????

First off, for you and your dd, that looks uncomfortable to say the least! My DS has gotten a similar looking thing a few times, and I personally think it has to do with friction from the elastic (his thighs are REALLY chubby) as well as maybe the synthetic materials in some of our PUL covers. I agree with pp -- let her run around in natural fibers with no cover as much as possible! PFs are really easy on my DS's thighs, so if you have some try those.

Also, for us the best thing to treat this type of rash (other than "air time") was actually plain old A&D ointment. It has lanolin in it, and it keeps the skin nice and soft and not dried out. I used flushable liners to protect the dipes and just flushed them when I changed him.

HTH!

Her's doesn't look like yeast at all. I really looks like her skin is chemically burned. Like really dry out, but smooth, not like dry skin.


After sleeping in a OBV prefold last night she woke up with about 90% of it gone.

I'm thinking it must be build up in the elastic or something. I just don't know. I tried to google pics of rashes and I haven't found it yet...I'm off to search again.

Re: WTH? What is this rash????

oooooohhh poor baby!!! It's chafing/friction. Probably from the fitted being wet for a while and rubbing her legs/crotch area as she crawled/moved. I wouldn't suspect anything the dipe was washed with or creams because it's not as bad where the dipe covered her and that skin is more tender than outside.
