Infant diaper rash & diarreah

My 4-month old son has diaper rash for the first time -- very red and bumpy -- caused by diarreah which we believe is related to teething (no other symptoms, no changes in what he's eating). What should we give him to treat the diarreah and/or the diaper rash.

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
There are a number of remedies which may be appropriate.

To narrow it down, you need to give us more detail. Are there any other symptoms your son is experiencing?

I have found something at the health food store that really works on the diarrea. Diarrex and Acidopholus. Take 1 or the Diarrex and 2 acidopholus and crush. Add this to some of his food or his juice. It should clear up within 2 days.
The diaper rash is hard to say, because it could be just irrated from the diarrea or could be bacteria. Try washing with a wet cloth with cetaphil after every BM and keep a cotton pad above his buttocks area. This will help keep this BM off of his gentials. Also try lots of A&D ointment, and some antibacterial ointment. AVOID powder and any diaper rash cream with fragrance. Let him soak daily in a warm bath for at least 15 mins. My one year old would tell you himself this works if he could talk. Let me know if there is anything else I can do.

I too have been dealing with this problem with my 1 year old. The only thing that I have ever found to work was using pure lanolin. Currently i've been using Lansinoh brand lanolin. my daughter has always struggled with diaper rash... a friend recommended this to me and it really is a miracle worker! in addition to this, i have purchased some washable paper towels that i get wet and use to wipe her off. My doctor said that many times ordinary wipes do not remove the acid completely from their bottoms and that water and an ordinary paper towel will work. I then hold a dry one to her bottom to make sure all the moisture is gone. I then apply the lanolin. In particular, over night her rash can lighten several shades just with one application of lanolin. I do use a thick application because she's going to be sleeping over-night, but it really is doing wonders for our daughter! Hope this helps someone!
