Q. What do I do with this horrible Diaper Rash??

I have no idea what is up with my daughters diaper rash, she is a year old and I do everything to keep this rash from coming, but it comes back! All week I have let her run without a diaper on trying to let it air out as much as possible, (thank god for carpet shampooers).Is there any secret that someone has to getting rid of this rash?
A1My own daughter was yeasty from whatever they do to newborns in the hospital and I battled it ever day until I started taking garlic gel tabs. Because I breasfed her she got all the benefits of it and her bottom cleared right up.
Probiotics can help, yogurt, kefir and the like. Super Salve from supersalve.com is amazing in its healing abilities. Avoid processed foods and especially sugars.
A2Have you tried changing to a different brand of diapers? Or maybe she is allergic to something. Have you changed any thing that might have caused this? There are couple of balms that protects the skin from the moist environment he’s in. and 8 times out of 10 – it’s the reason for it.
A3Hi! I understand what you are going through…my daughter had a nasty rash when she was 9 months old. And then I encountered this amazing web site I think every mother should know: http://drmdk.com and here is a direct link to Diaper rash:
