My son began getting diarrhea (pediatrician said it was teething) and very soon after his butt started getting red. At the first site of redness I started putting Boudreaux's Butt Paste and Aveeno Diaper Cream (worked great on my daughter) on him. But the diaper rash kept getting worse. Within days he had open sores on his bottom and was bleeding. We cut out wipes, used only warm washcloths and I tried every named brand diaper cream on the market; nothing worked. I visited every website I could find with home remedies and tried them; nothing worked. The pediatrician gave us Nystatin cream for what we thought was a yeast. It made it worse. They told me to mix Desitin, Nystatin and Maalox together, that didn't work either. I let him air his butt out everyday and once all night. Mild improvement, but not cured. 2 weeks into this, my poor son would scream with every diaper change. It broke my heart! Then a friend suggested Bag Balm. I had no idea what this was, but it is what farmers put on their cow's udders when they are chapped. You should be able to find it anywhere they have supplies for animals. Within 12 hours I noticed a vast improvement and within 24 hours his butt was only mildly pink. What a huge difference! Now he will be getting this on his butt even if he doesn't have a rash. If you are like me and feel like you have tried every remedy out there and nothing has worked, try Bag Balm!

My son is teething and has diarrhea for 3 days now. He also started to have a diaper rash since last night and he is really, really upset when i need to change his diaper. I read about the Bag Balm this morning and I already went to get it and started to use it. I think it already looks better... One question though.... Do I still need to use Desitin or baby powder along with the bag balm?...

Catalina

I really don't know how to thank you enough for this advice. It is absolutely AMAZING. I started using it at 12 p.m. (it's 3 p.m. now) and the rash is almost gone. My son just woke up and I was afraid to check his diaper, not knowing if it's going to be better or worse. I wish I would have known about it before. Last time my son had it, it took 3 weeks and tons of nyastin and other antibiotics to get rid of it and know it's gone in a few hours. THANK YOU SO MUCH.

My daughter is 1 and teething.She visited grandma in GA. for three weeks when she arrived her bottom was raw and I made sure I packed the yeast cream that her doctor suggested my mother refused to use the yeast cream.She got on the phone with a family friend who is the remedy QUEEN and she advised her to use bag balm. She stated that Walgreens carried it. The walgreen associate confirmed it as well he she further that they can't keep it on the shelf. The rash cleared up within an hour. But I live in Florida and it has been very difficult to find here.

My daughter is 14 months and just started teething and has had a bad diaper rash for the past 3 days. I've used Desitin in the past with sucess but it's not cutting it this time. I bought Bag Baum for my cracked hands month's ago, but i'm gonna ry it on my daughter. I'll let you know how it goes!

Samantha

Bag Balm works! I was planning on taking my daughter to the doctor for her rash cause it would not get better ans bag balm has worked wonders. It's about 75% gone now after one day of use! Thank you for the advice!

The only problem I found with the Butt Paste (aside from the fact it didn't work for my son) is that it causes the diaper to deteriorate, which, in turn, causes more leaks.

I have the same problem with my daughter except the bag balm isn't helping.... because she still has diahria really bad like every 30 minutes she needs her butt changed from liquid diapers. I have tried almost everything and nothing seems to work. The bag balm helped at first then it got worse as she kept pooping. But any other situation were it's just a rash or a little acid burn yes I would go with this too.

HOLY COW, I can't believe I am not the only one with this going on. Your post sounds EXACTLY like what is happening with my daughter. It is crazy how bad her bottom hurts. I have been searching the web for hours trying to figure out what is going on. It is maddening.
