Re: Allergic to diapers??????
Ya know, it's funny that you posted this... I've posted a couple messages recently about my son having had a rash. It's gone now, but I was kind of wondering in the beginning if his rash wasn't due to using a different kind of diaper. We always use Huggies and the day that he developed his rash, I had used a generic brand on him because we'd run out of his regular diapers. It was weird because the rash DID start in the groin/lower stomach and butt area. Then it traveled up his stomach, chest, and back a little. But he also ended up getting a little bit on his face, so that kind of makes me doubt that it was the diapers. Who knows though? I'm sure it's possible, at least in your son's case! Since it's localized like that, I would definitely think that's the case. Just keep an eye on it and see whether it starts moving around, and whether or not he developes a temperature. I just betcha that's all it is though.
When my son had his rash, I bathed him in that Aveeno stuff...um... darnit I can't remember what exactly it's called. But it's the box that has like 5 packets of this powdery stuff that's great for rashes. It really seemed to soothe his skin.
