Kitten diaper rash. What to use?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Our one rescue, Dork, has some serious poo problems. Runny doesn't even come close. He had a serious worm infestation that has just made going potty a misery for him. (Oh, he's about 8 weeks old) His little bum is red and swollen and it's been so long since I had a kitten with a sore bum, I can't remember what to use. Would regular baby powder be ok or maybe human baby diaper rash cream? Anything? I just washed him in lukewarm water as he made a mess all over himself. I dried his bum off the best I could but he's pretty ticked at me now.

Thanks!

A search on the site showed that a couple of people had success with desitin diaper rash cream.

Good luck!

That is what I used on my bottle baby, it worked really well

For what it's worth a day or 2 ago I read that a dab of olive oil helps soothe a sore kitten bottom. I wish I could remember which site. Sorry. Good luck.

Thank you! I actually have Desitin in the nursery. I just thought he'd end up licking it off? I'll wipe a small dab on him in a few moments. I've just been keeping the area as dry as I can.
