My son is a little over two and my daughter is seven months and both have Llamellar. We really never had a problem with diaper area irritation. We were instructed to give frequent sponge bathes and lube as needed with Aquaphor. We have always used standard baby wipes and never had any negative or adverse reaction to using these wipes. They did get occasional standard diaper rash and that was cleared in a day or so. Our dermatologist had said we wouldn't really see any cracking or splitting of the skin in the genital area due to the constant moisture in the diaper area. With the frequent sponge bathes, regular bathes, etc. The diaper area stayed pretty clean, lubed and moist to prevent cracking due to possible infection from this area. Hope this helps.
Oh yeah, almost forgot. When our kids were first born and still had the collodian membrane and were still in the process of molting it, most areas where there were creases seemed more red or raw. Ex: Ankles, wrist, behind knee, etc. We just added a little extra Aquaphor to these areas to keep them softer and more flexible. Once they sluff the collodian membrane the rawness, redness in these areas goes away.
