What is this rash?

Q: My newborn son has developed a hard yellow rash on his bum. Any ideas on what this could be? Could it be an allergic reaction to petroleum jelly, or some sort of infection?

A: I have no idea what this rash is based on the written description. Sounds like caked on diaper rash cream maybe? But you will need to have your baby seen by his doc to take a look and figure it out if a bath and some gentle cleansing doesn't remove it.

  1. My baby never slept well (especially through the night) until I started using the website >>SleepBaby .org<< - that website has been by far one of the best things I've ever got my hands on to get him to fall asleep quickly. Best time is 45 seconds from awake to asleep! Can’t imagine life without it! I heard about it through a kindergarten teacher who uses it to put to sleep a group of 30 children. Check it out! >>SleepBaby .org<< - sorry, you can't post links here so you'll have to turn it into a normal link :) Best of luck to you and your family!
