I just gave my 2 month old a bath and noticed after drying her off that her neck fold is pretty raw and red looking. Any ideas on what it is and tips of what I can do to help it feel better? It looks painful. :(
OUCH! that does look painful!!
is that the front of her neck??
if you could, try and keep it very dry and clean- use talc free powder (corn starch if you need to) to help keep it dry and you can also put some diaper rash cream on it- buttpaste works pretty well, or you could use some neosporin but i think the buttpaste may work better for her skin.

I swear by Desitin for those patches. I'm really careful with Aubree's neck folds because she's so chunky, but she's gotten raw patches in her armpit a couple times that are exactly like that. I just put a nice thin coat on it and the difference in even just a few hours is amazing.
My baby has a severe case of this. His neck is very raw and wetish looking when we move the fold back. I was wondering what cure you found that was best? my email is firstname.lastname@example.org. Very worried and would appreciate any answers. THANKS!
