    Default Diaper Rash

    Any idea if a diaper rash that appeared today(Friday) could be caused by a new food my LO ate last Sunday? Or is it more likely that, if it's even food related, it's from the new one offered last night? She hasn't had a bm since before she tried broccoli last night which is why I'm wondering if it could be from Sunday. Thanks!

    It's red w/ little white bumps. Could it be yeast? It doesn't seem to bother her at all. No fever or anything.

    if it looks like whitehead pimples, it is most likely yeast. i put powder probiotics directly on the rash...don't get it wet first. it will clear up super fast.

    and are you in cloth? if so, you will have to eradicate it from your diapers...and it is hard!

    IME an allergy-related diaper rash will look more like a flat red ring around the anus - not what you are describing. But if it was food-related, I would probably assume on the food eaten the evening before, not almost a week ago.

    It does look like really tiny whiteheads Where can I get probiotic powder? Do I also need to take her to the pedi for this?

    Darn, I was hoping I could tell my MIL it was her fault for giving her teething biscuits, after I said I didn't really want her to have them Guess I'll just have to put my foot down!

    Thanks!

    I get ours at a farmers market type store...like whole foods. And I have never taken him to the doc for it because unfortunately I knew what it looked like so I spotted it right away. The probiotic powder should take care of it, but then make sure any diapers are taken care of too (unless disposable). Good luck!
