Hi Brinda. You should visit a doctor immediately rather than trying things at home. Do keep us posted what the doctor says, ok?

Use coconut oil for some relief but make sure you visit the doc asap since she's too small to risk more rash spread.

Richa Chowdhary

Plz check with doctor.. apply rash cream once you are sure she is crying because of rashes..

Revauthi Rajamani

U can apply rash cream, I suggest you check with your doctor

It might be diaper rash. Try using cloth nappies till rashes subside. And next time at every diaper change use Vaseline petroleum jelly or a diaper rash cream. Since it's your baby's first rash, it might be a good idea to consult the doctor. Do not worry. Stay calm and handle this. It happens!

Please keep the baby diaper free and keep the area dry ..you can apply boroline to soothe ...
If it continues please show it the doctor ..take care

To treat diaper rash, nothing has to be done, dont use diaper till rash is treated, just let skin airdry and breathe, max u can do is apply rash cream and put lowers. To prevent rashes- Hygiene maintenance is very imp in preventing diaper rash, change every 3-4 hrs or whenever dirty,; use good quality diaper or properly washed cloth nappies, use lukewarm water and dip cotton or only lukewarm water with hands to clean the area, keep wipes for outings/emergency; only), par dry with soft towel,; let the area air dry and if winters are there at ur place just keep the baby in pyjamas only or without any nappy for few hrs a day.
Apply coconut oil / good quality diaper rash cream like aquaphor and then put on diaper.
Before sleep also follow same routine and change diaper .
