Thread: diaper rash help needed

    Default diaper rash help needed

    Hi everyone! I hope everyone is doing fine
    I tried to read some other posts about how to treat diaper rash but I've seen more like how to prevent them.

    So it's been 3 weeks since I got a rash between my legs (legs cuffs?) right between my legs and testicle, it happened from a weekend that I couldn't changed often so I stood in wet diapers fir kinda long plus they were plastic back diaper.
    Anyways I've been trying to reducing my diaper wearing as much as I can and since I'm a light- mid incontinent I'm able to kinda control it. Like at work I change my underwear so it doesn't get soaked and at night.... Well I wear thin cloth diapers and bed protections for those occasional wetting. No Diapers for fun time cause I really wanna heal...

    So it's been 3 weeks and ive tried putting diaper change cream, diaper trash cream, vaseline, nothing at all, I try to air out a lot but is still there. Maybe not as bad as at the beginning but still not cured. What should I do? Summertime is coming soon and I want to be totally healed cause sweating is starting to add to that equation

    What do you do when that happens to you? What do you don't do?

    Thanks in advance.

    rash is so frustrating... it sounds like you're doing everything right, keep airing it out and try to change as often as possible

    I've had times where I'm rashy and it just won't clear up. Try to drink lots of water, stay hydrated to dilute your pee. Clear watery pee doesn't cause rash like yellow morning pee.

    I use the classic Johnson's baby lotion myself

    You may need to see a Doctor for persistent rash. A steroid cream may be prescribed.
    Change wet diaper more frequently.
    Wipe diapering area with baby wipe to clean skin at change.
    Light dusting of baby powder or Gold Bond powder helps reduce residual moisture or sweat.
    Change wet diaper.
    No diaper for 30 minutes at least once per day (temporary male guards or female pads for true incontinence are exempt)
    For rash lasting more than 7 days, see first sentence.
    You could also try a change of diaper brand, try cloth diapers, alternate diaper fit, different product,...

    Try a cream with calamine powder. Two that come to mind are anti-monkey butt cream and CALMOSEPTINE. The Calmoseptine has calamine and menthol in it and it is VERY very thick. Even washing wth soap and a wash cloth will not remove it.

    Another thing it could be is a reaction to the diaper you are using.

    Thanks a lot for your posts. About Those types of creams, or others, is it better to put them during the day since I'm out of the house and put non plus airing out at night time whenever I come back home? Or should I put cream non stop (and changing/showering of course)

    Does putting cream to calm the irritation and itching is better than just dry aired skin?

    My suggestion is besides diaper rash cream with lots of zink in it, and lots of babypowder.
    I usually also use plastic pants which will help cover the area that's chafed - in these situations, when I sufer from chafings, I use Suprima plastic pants model S1218, the most comfortable plastic pant I have ever worn.

    Rashes n the crotch area from being too long in a wet diaper, change and clean frequently - over time you skin will get used to being wet all the time, as others have said, drink lot's of water to dilute your urine - yes you will be wetting more, but it will not burn your skin.

    Initially when my incontinence started I also got rashes, but over time bu skin toughened up - and now I can be in a wet diaper for prolonged time with no problems.

    Same here. I can wear the same nappy all day and often do without problems now.

    For really sore stubborn rashes, Bepanthen in pretty good. I think it contains lanolin. It acts like a layer over the skin, protecting it while it heals.

    For minor irritations, I'd suggest a zinc oxide cream, such as Sudocrem. But (especially if you need to wear diapers and can't let the rash air out), Bepanthen is amazing. It's weird taking off a wet diaper to discover that your rash has improved instead of got worse!
