My son who had never had diaper rash before (he's almost15 months old) all of a sudden broke out in this awful diaper rash. We put desitin on it and it kept getting worse. Finally it was bleeding and oozing and we had to find a new approach. We cleaned him with soap and water, let him thoroughly air dry (he loved the being naked part) and put antibiotic ointment on. It started to clear up and then he would have a bowel movement and it would go back to being awful again. I finally figured out that it was his diet doing the damage. He LOVES fruit and had eaten blueberries and raspberries at lunch for a couple of days. They are acidic and that's what was eating him up. Now we will only have a couple of blueberries at a time. Poor little man!
