My Granddaughter seems to have a recurrent diaper rash; I am her caregiver four out of the seven evenings a week, while my son and daughter-in-law work the same shifts at the same company. We all change her diaper OFTEN; we use "Parents Choice" diapers and wipes and their equivalent of "Desitin" cream(generic). Can babies be "allergic" to their own urine, or be irritated by it? I've not seen this before, but it's also been a long time since there's been a baby in the house!! This is my first grandchild, so I feel, at the age of 48, I'm learning all over again!! LOL She's fair skinned and seems a little on the sensitive side. TY for any and all advice!! Sincerely,...Gramma KatView Thread
Ty so much, Sohpia! I'm an old, retired nurse and a first time grandmother; my granddaughter Haylee, started getting this rash around her mouth and I tried putting a little bit of Desitin on it before she went to bed at night; I also drink Crystal Light Raspberry Ice and she LOVES it, but it's "red." So, I have DC'd that as of today and I am heading to WalMart to purchase this Aquaphor to see if this will work for her; I really appreciate the adice and will keep ya posted! I was a "cardiac" nurse, not dermatology! LOL...so, I really wasn't sure what to do. THX!!View Thread
