Skin problems--do my diapers need stripping?

I got a couple bed wetter pants used for my oldest. But he's getting these red, chafed spots on his skin. Is it from the pee? Is there some residue in the diapers? If there is some residue, what do I do to get rid of it? The more natural the way, the better.

Or are they too small? They seem to fit fine though.

The diapers are cotton, so I know it's not the fabric.

Thanks!

I would bleach them and rinse several times in the hottest water you can get.

Thanks! I had kind of thought of washing them really good, and rinsing a lot.

And don't freak out, but I don't have any bleach. I can't stand the stuff! But my mother-in-law does, so I could always have her wash them.

I hate bleach too, but used diapers I would always suggest bleaching. Then washing once with detergent, then rinsing rinsing rinsing until no soap bubbles. You don't know if it the last user had yeast issues, or detergent/mineral/urine build up :-/

Do you have other cotton AIOs? If not, and you are concerned at washing them completely you can consider bac-out to help keep them clean. I think it works better to help keep diapers clean vrs cleaning an existing issue.
