I hope that as Dr. DuMond suggested you took your child to see her pediatrician to find out if she's truly got diaper rash or something else is going on. If you get a chance, post and tell us what happened. Sometimes sharing your experience really helps others in the community.
Also, for you and others who may have diaper rash questions in the future, here are some great resources for Diaper Rash from right here at WebMD.
We appreciate that you are promoting your board to others here on our site, and sometimes one space works better for one than another.
I just want to also share with the members who belong here at WebMD that we provide expert answers and support here on this board, and we also have plenty of other support groups for parents of kids of various ages. These are also lively places where you can meet others like you and share your experiences and information.
We hope that all of our members will find what they need here on our site, but if not we hope what they find will meet their needs and make them happy.
