Calling all MOMS...Calling all MOMS!

I need some help!

Ethan and I have been struggling for some time now with sores on his bum!  They seem to appear whenever he has a poopy diaper, but if he hasn't had a poopy for a while, they get better.

We've tried treating yeast, but that isn't it.

I try to change him as soon as I notice he is poopy but that doesn't seem to help either.

Acquafir seems to be the best barrier protection I have found so far for his issue, but it hasn't solved the problem, only treated the symptoms of the problem. And if I don't have Acuafir on him and he poops, the sores are right back.

However, after just one treatment of Acquafir there is usually a drastic improvement - Grandma saw the same thing with the Aveeno she used, but hasn't solved the problem, only treated the result.

I haven't been able to figure out if it is a reaction to the poop and the LUVs or if it is something he's been eating????  Any help or suggestions you have would be GREAT!

Thanks in advance for any comments left!

    Alkaline diet. No disposable diapers. No storebought wipes. No antibiotics (which can cause yeast infections). Cranverry juice (NO SUGAR type) is good as are greens to reduce acidic conditions. Also wondering what laundry soap you are using.AND make certain that you avoid anything that contains mineral oil, petroleum, parrafinum, as they seal the pores which inhibits healing...and can cause a lot of other issues. :) Hope this helps! :)

  2. Wow...I will have to see what I can try in all of that. We have tried the cloth route but the constant wet only aggravates. Seriously the thing that is working best right now is neosporin with baby oil ( i know that goes against advice) But I know that once again that is symptomatic not solutionary. We can definitely do the cranberry thing, and we have switched diapers to see if that helps and so far his bum is looking the best it has been for awhile.
