I do try to keep her dry-I change her at least every 2 hours. The weird thing about the rash is that it often goes outside of her diaper, up her back and starts down her legs. It NEVER bothers her. She doesn't act like it itches or burns at all. Powder is a good idea...I've not tried that. I have put her in disposable diapers (and put her in disposable at night) but that hasn't seemed to make a difference, in fact, sometimes it makes other diaper rashes she might get worse.

My daughter has had a diaper rash for FOR.E.VER. I think she's had it most of her 23 month old life. The dr. said it was staph, and that everyone has staph on their body, some more than others. He didn't seem overly concerned about it. We used 'quadruple butt paste' (Aquaphor, Nystatin, the stuff in A&D ointment, and one other thing I can't remember) for a while, and it seemed to help clear it up some. The dr. has put her on a round of Keflex after the 'butt paste' didn't take it completely away, saying that sould clear it right up. It didn't...but I didn't want to go back to the dr. and have him give her a stronger antibiotic for someting that doesn't really seem to bother her all that much. We do use cloth diapers, and I tried to changing the detergent to see if that would make a difference, but it did not.
My question is, is there something missing from her diet that could help this rash go away? Or is it just something we have to wait until she's potty trained for it to go away? It might not even be something we really need to worry about...I don't know. We have just recently started down the 'traditional food' path, and are still very VERY new to all of this.

I was coming to this site to post this very same question...my 3-year old son has a wart on his hand that we have been 'fighting' for a year and a half. He just had it 'froze off' for the third time today. While at the dermatologist's office, he suggested my son taking Zantac...has anyone ever heard of that as an option? I don't know much about Zantac, and have a feeling it's not a great option, but just curious if anyone had ever tried that. Seeing as this is a 'food as medicine' forum, I doubt anyone would suggest Zantac (and I, quite honestly, will try just about anything before I go that route) but I was just curious.
I DID just order some fermented cod liver oil today for the first time, so maybe that will finally 'do the trick'. My kid is a trouper...he's had this proceedure done 3 times with no numbing-tough little boy. But I feel like there's got to be a better way...
