Thread: Diaper rash problems...not enough powder?

  1. #1

    Default Diaper rash problems...not enough powder?

    how do you know if you're using enough baby powder during diaper changes?


    I only wear occasionally, and not for long periods of time if I wet...but I've been dealing with a rash for a week and a half now, and think it's because I'm not using enough powder and it's been hot lately. I can't tell if this is a heat rash, or a diaper rash of some other kind (yeast probably) because it's not responding to my 40% Zinc Parent's Choice brand diaper ointment or my off-brand fast-relief destin. I think it has the same amount of zinc in it...?


    Anyways--I think part of the problem is from going out recently and running some errands in a diaper after not using enough powder, and sweating a lot! Had I known I was going to be out that long, I wouldn't have worn that day...but ended up being out for longer than intended. Not doing that again!


    Not to get too graphic, but it hurts whenever I sit and I haven't worn diapers in three days...can someone help? I got some off-brand athlete's foot cream yesterday and it seems to be helping a lot, but the pain is still there whenever I sit! Sleeping on my back is unpleasant, too.

    Oh well I Use Sudocrem Cream U use it around your legs where Diaper touches your legs and u can also put it over your private areas. Seems to work well even in hot climates while travelling.
    PS. U need to drink a lot so u don't sweat If you're hydrated well u will sweat less and pee more.

    Skip powder, it does very little for rashes.

    You need to be using both cream and ointment. A good diaper cream will absorb into your skin to heal the rash. A good ointment will create a barrier on your sking to prevent the rash from getting worse or even starting in the first place.

    Now if that doesn't work or at least get better in a few days, then it might nit be a rash at all. It could be a bacterial infection. Over the counter dr.schols or lotramin jock itch stuff works pretty good for that.

    Yes, but that's only half. You'd still need an ointment for after using the cream.

    Do you? strange never seen any need for any other ointment, just fire it on generously, diaper up and done, rash is gone.

    Rash cream is also good to have, anything with zinc oxide in

    I bought a tub of sudocrem for emergencies but so far I've never had to use it, I never get rashes apart from occasional chathing

    If the rash is bad enough, and you want it healed as fast as possible, then yes you do need it.

    Will a rash heal with only one, of course. It will take longer though. Heck, just keeping the skin clean and dry will heal a rash, no ointments crams or powders needed. Though obviosly it will take longer still.

    It all just boils down to the desired speed of recovery, as well as the rate of occurances, you're willing to live with. Go ahead and use only powder, I'm not the one wanting to heal a rash right now.

    " I'm not the one wanting to heal a rash right now." Nor am I, and when I do want to heal a rash I use Sudo Cream.
