Diaper Rash Area Question

Echo - July 10

Hey ladies - I am a first time mom so I am just about paraniod about everything about my son. Wondering if things are or are not normal. My question is about diaper rash. Luckliy my son has not had a major case of diaper rash - a little red now and then nothing big but sometimes he gets a couple red bumps - like a pimple on his butt cheek. He has one now on the inner thigh - near the diaper. Is is diaper rash too or simply pimples due to the friction of the diaper rubbing the skin?

If there are just one or two, they aren't spreading and they go away within a few days they are probably just that- pimples. If they begin spreading, won't go away and have peely looking skin around them it could be a yeast infection. My third had this- yep, baby boy jock itch :O But, if your doctor would happen to diagnose that it's easily cured with a Lotrimin application 2x/day for a week!

Echo - Try applying bag balm on your son's bum and where the diaper goes around his legs. I use it everyday at almost every diaper change and my son has never gotten diaper rash or pimples where the diaper fits. It is cheaper than most diaper rash creams and keeps the area moisturized. I love it!
