Quoting FaithLovesBaby:" My 5 month old had a slight diaper rash for a few days, about a week ago. She had one spot outside of ... [snip!] ... inside her diaper. This one spot has been there for a week, how long should I wait for it to go away before I call her pedi?"my SIL popped what she thought was a zit on my nephews belly turns out it is MRSA he had to be put to sleep to get it drained id call and have it looked at
Quoting FaithLovesBaby:" I'll call her pedi first thing in the morning tomorrow if it's still there. Should I put a band-aid over it to keep it from rubbing on her diaper?"
Quoting Destinite:" With clean hands, touch around the perimeter to see if it is hard."I touched it earlier when I was putting oil on her butt, and it isn't hard.

Quoting Destinite:" That's a good sign. Definitely get her an appointment. If it is an abscess, they can go from zero to 60 quick & need to be surgically drained along with heavy antibiotics. "I'll call her pedi, thanks everyone.
