allergic to toilet paper? Moo-mmyஐ 52 kids; New York 27164 posts

Usually we use Cottonelle toilet paper, but last time we went shopping we had a coupon for something different (can't remember the name) so to save a buck we got that one because it was cheaper. Since we've started using it though, Syrus has what looks almost like diaper rash. This toilet paper is slightly rougher than the Cottonelle, but not by much so I don't think it's that. Plus nether Luke nor I are having this issue, but Syrus's skin is more sensitive. Could he actually be allergic to the toilet paper or could it just be too rough for his skin?

I'm actually having the exact same problem.
I just assumed it was too rough for my LO's bottom. I normally get charmin extra soft. But I ran out and my parents were over and they picked up some cheap ass stuff lol. Now he cries when i wipe his bum and I feel bad :(:(

I would say it's too rough for him butt. Can you treat it and get a new roll for him and see if it stops?

It's not scented, but we're going shopping Friday and definitely getting Cottonelle for him instead and Luke and I will use the last 4 rolls of what's left of this brand. Right now the only thing that seems to be helping his tush is powder, but I still feel bad because he cries when I wipe him :(

Powder usually helps heat rashes so the friction from it may be causing a heat rash or he might be sweating more than usual in that area causing a heat rash.

I thought it could be heat rash, but he hasn't been sweating or anything. It's been really cold.

Yeah. I know at some point it must get to be too much because he begs us to take his pants off, but I just assumed he was going through his undressing phase.

Well if the house is pretty warm just let him go pantsless for now...at least until his tush is cleared up.
