OK, so my 2.5yo daughter has been PT for several months (except sleep). But ever since then, she consistently gets really red and bumpy in her genital region (sorry, TMI) and even her little tushie cheeks.
She's even had one slight infection (which was cleared up quickly with a cream and vinegar baths).
I've tried better quality wipes, but that didn't help. Not wiping at all doesn't help.
My instinct is that she pees sometimes without us knowing and then doesn't wipe herself, which leaves urine on her skin. Plus, when we wipe her, she stays moist, unlike with a diaper, which pulls moisture away from the skin.
So I'm trying to wipe with a wet wash cloth and then pat dry.
Anyone have an experience with this or knowledge on how to avoid breakouts/irritation?
