Why haven't you taken her to the pediatrician? Don't make her suffer any longer.

You need to go see the pediatrician. Sounds like you might need a medicated cream. In the meantime, as much as possible air her little butt out. Light and air circulation help.

With my daughter the doc had me use any anti-fungal cream(like for athletes foot) & alternate that with a medicated powder. Powder came in pink bottle, I think the name is caldesyn.

Please do not use OTC athletes foot antifungal cream on a baby.

It was pediatrician ordered and worked great.

The problem is that if someone reads this and tries it there could be severe medical issues if no Dr supervision.

Take her to the doctor and he/she will probably prescribe a prescription ointment, as your daughter probably has an infection as someone else suggested, since the rash is so persistent. This happened to my daughter when she was a baby. After treating her with the prescription ointment, I only ever put Vaseline on her bottom - no Desitin and especially no powder - and the bad rashes stopped. And always make sure baby's bottom is very dry before putting on the Vaseline - pat it gently with toilet paper if necessary. BTW, the Vaseline trick was also recommended by the doc.

Soap water wash each time you change and change her more frequently. use lots of Vaseline as a barrier cream all over diaper area
