Herpes outbreak on baby??

My 17-month-old has come down with what we thought was a diaper rash, but now that the redness has gone away there are what look to be white blisters on his scrotum and foreskin. There is also a blister at his waist where a scratch was.

They don't seem to bother him, or itch or anything. I put tea tree and lavender EO on them earlier and he didn't act like they sting.

I don't know if this is a herpes virus or not. My husband gets cold sores on his nose occasionally but hasn't had one in a while (he's being treated homeopathically with much success). I really stay after him to wash his hands before he changes the baby's diaper or feeds him, and the baby doesn't go to day care or anything where he would get changed by anyone else.

Herpes or not, is there a remedy that helps this kind of blister outbreak in the diaper area? I'd really like to clear it up fast, although if it becomes recurring I'll have to take him to a practitioner. Hopefully it doean't come to that.

Thanks for any help!

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Shayla, Please describe the blisters deeper. Like, is there a clouded substance in the blister or a clear substance. Or no liquid at all. This will help decide what it is. I doesn't sound like herpes.

Well, the one on his waist where a scratch was is very small and completely flat and sort of yellowish. It looks more "blistery" than the others.

The ones on his testicles didn't look like they had liquid in them at all, and now that I put the essential oil on them about 45 minutes ago and left his diaper off, they are all kind of red and dried up. Perhaps yellowish in color, although they looked whitish before.

The only area which looks moist is the foreskin area, which is the most irritated looking as well. It's generally red and bumpy (not uncommon with diaper rash, I know, but combined with the blisters they concern me).

Anything else you need to know, just tell me. I'm not new to homeopathy, but I have a hard time diagnosing children.

I thought it would be Iris Versicolor, but my findings point to IRIS GERMANICA 15X. If you can get as close as possible to 15X would be best.

It may be 3 things I read, but let's see about this remedy.

I suggest a real mild soap to bathe him, gently. Do not pull off or break the bumps/blisters if you can help it. Don't want to spread or stir something up. Let me know if he gets it anywhere else on the body?

One dose per day for 3 days.

I can get 15x of Iris Germanica, but since I'll have to have it mail-ordered (I can usually get it in a day or two) should I go ahead and get anything else in case this doesn't take care of it? That way if I need to switch remedies I'll have the others handy. :)

Thanks for the help. Hopefully this will fix him right up! :)
