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.
