Nystatin for diaper rash

Elise has a really bad diaper rash her skin is broken even thou I quickly change her diapers. When I bath her and try to wash her bottom she screams :( Will Nystatin burn and hurt more? Desitin, Aquapor or baking soda baths are not working.

    Nystatin will hurt more. I'd let her get plenty air out time. That will help. Any new foods or new diapers? She could be allergic to something. I just do water baths. I've done neosporin on the sores if open then topped with something to repel the water-like vaseline (I need to go to bed, took me 5 minutes to remember that word) before you put the diaper back on. If nothing else, you can get prescription strength desitin from the doctor that works wonders. But basically all it is is neosporin and vaseline in one.

    Thanks I will try the oatmeal baths how much? I really wanted to make soaps for her for these situations.

        After readin through previous posts I think you hit the nail on the head, lactose intolerant (or maybe just milk intolerant.. my kids can eat all the cheese in the world and be fine, but give them a sip of milk and they are sick). I'd stop the milk and let her body get better. It will take about two weeks for it all to work through her system. Watch labels for 'cassein', it's the protein in milk. You can try giving her peppermint or ginger tea to help settle her stomach and stop the egg farts and hopefully the diarrhea. Once you stop the dairy, it will start improving within a few days, but it all won't be through her system until a few weeks.
        Once you get her all healed again, I'd start a food journal so you know what foods give her diarrhea (a sure sign it's got hidden milk in it). The nutritionist at WIC should be able to help with suggestions if you need some. Feel free to message me, too. I've been through it a lot and can help you with foods if you want.

            Poor baby. I hope she feels better soon! When Andrew was bad (I didn't know about allergies when he was a baby, he was my test poor little guy). We went through a ton of diapers because I was changing him every hour, sometimes every half hour just to keep him dry.

                When this happens with my son I get two washcloths-one for wetting and wiping poop and the other for patting him dry. Then we use the equate version of desitin along with Vaseline and his rash is almost gone by the end of the day. And if his skin is broken we use neosporin on it. Works like a charm! And per my mom's suggestion if its really really bad I put band aids over the open sores which helps them heal quicker. Also, we only use fragrance free wipes and I only wipe him when he's poppy. All have helped get rid of rashes a lot quicker! Oh, and warm baths with no soap help too.

                Thanks I do Aquapor and desitin and it heals really quick. I make my own baby wipes due to her skin being so sensitive. I have never thought about bandages in the diaper rash! Thanks, It would be a good idea to avoid further irritation.

                Ok awesome! Yay! Sounds like you got it:) that's great you make your own wipes! Such a cheaper and smarter alternative to buying wipes!! Yes, I would have never thought of it unless my mom suggested it! I get the band aids that seal out wetness so no pee or poop can get on the open sore

                  We just went through this because we wanted to get him used to citrus. Now he can eat oranges, drink orange juice, eat to!a to sauce, etc all without his butt blistering and breaking open. But the first few times were terrible! His butt was bleeding and he had open sores but doing all that they were gone with in 2 days.
