Our son is 17 months old and has been in cloth diapers since he was 1 month old. About two months ago he got blisters on his penis. The doctor said it was a bacterial infection and to put triple antibiotic ointment on it. We used disposables during this time and it cleared up. When we switched back to cloth, the blisters returned. Since then we have stripped the cloth diapers, switch detergents, and stripped again. He is okay when wearing them after being stripped but the blisters return whenever we do a plain wash. Both detergents we have tried are on the approved detergent list provided by the diaper manufacturer.
I hate the thought of switching to disposables but I don't know of another way to avoid blisters. (Anytime he wears disposables, no blisters.) Any ideas or suggestions?
A little more information regarding our situation that may help with answers. We used Planet Ultra for over a year, then switched to Rockin' Green. We only wash the diapers with these detergents (no clothing). He hasn't gotten any rashes or blisters anywhere except his penis. We don't use any ointment when he is in cloth diapers.
"stripped" means a wash with Dawn soap and liquid bleach followed by numerous rinses.
