If you really know me and follow me on twitter...then you know I have been dealing with rash. Lots and lots of diaper rash. I assumed it was yeast when it was just on Zealand and we dealt with it appropriately with Nystatin creams and Bourdeaux. It got worse each time he had a bowel movement. I had been told by a pharmacist friend to mix equal parts nystatin cream, mylanta (or Maalox) and Desitin. I mixed it up and slathered it on. Only to find out that Desitin creamy isn't even approved for baby's skin per @thesmartmama. You will have to ask her all the details but I totally trust her on being green, cause that is her thing! I took Zealand to the Pediatrician, where we were told bacteria. We were given bactriban orally and topically. At this point, Kingsley's rash was just starting to surface. NOONE told me not to bathe them together....never even thought about it, ya know! Kingsley followed in to the Pediatrician the next week or two after I couldn't clear that up.
Both rashes cleared and I was thankful for about 7 days.
Kingsley's came back with a vengeance.
I tried ALL of the following: Nystatin cream, the homemade triple cream, liquid acidophilus, coconut oil, Dr. Smith's diaper cream, Tea Tree Oil (in baths, laundry and even dabbed directly on spots) Grapefruit seed extract (in wipe mix and in sippy cups), Vinegar (also in baths and in wipe mix and laundry). I bleached the diapers and changed detergents numerous times.
At simultaneous times, I was given the opportunity to chose a product from Ruby Pinwheels to review while I was working with a "Rash Specialist"
(I will talk about her in a later post if anyone is interested).
The "RS" said they ONLY cream she recommends is the Earth Mama Angel Baby Bottom Balm. that the others contain zinc which is just a barrier. She works closely with the CDC on testing baby products and the ingredients that are used in them.
I talked to her via email and then phone! (She called me!)
Kingsley was put back on the prescription cream Bactriban with directions to apply 2x a day for 7 days. ALL 7 days. If it gets worse, then we will attempt oral medications but the WHOLE reason, I went to such extremes with the organic and holistic remedies was I did not want to her to have oral antibiotics. We also switched to Earth Mama Angel Baby cream to use on all other changes and we switched to disposable diapers.
We made the switch on Thursday.
Today is Sunday.
I'm not a gambler....only because I hate to lose....but I am pretty confident that Earth Mama Angel Baby cream had something to do with it!
Ruby Pinwheels sells all organic, so you know you can trust what you get from them, starting with Earth Mama Angel Baby products.
I don't want to shop somewhere that sells bad products mixed in with good ones because it makes money...I wanna shop somewhere that sells only good products because they believe in them and they care what I put on MY baby.
Right now Ruby Pinwheels has 20% off their site....probably won't last long!
