My 14 month old son had diarreha for more than a week, his poor bum was so sore, we tried everything. I didn't use wipes, I would rinse him bum off with warm water in the tub, then pour room temperature green tea over his bottom and little boy parts, tried soaking him with 'Domeboro' (a soak used for poison ivy/oak etc) and every diaper rash cream under the sun, but nothing seemed to help. Finally I tried giving him a bath with Aveeno oatmeal bath and baking soda then after his bum was dry I put a thin layer of hydrocortisone, a layer of desitin, and a thick layer of bag balm on top. By his next diaper change his bottom looked so much better!
