Burts Bees diaper cream will help the worst of the worst! Also, if your having really bad or constant rashes, change your diaper brand. We switched to 7th Generation and her rashes went away by themselves. If we ever put her in a conventional diaper, they come back with a vengence.

Boudreaux's Butt Paste works great, and it doesn't smell bad either. The only bad thing about it is the price, so I would use it only when the rush is bad, and maybe use something cheaper for every day necessities.

Not sure where abouts you are and what is available to you, but i found that after buying dozens of different creams that are on the market, i think it's just trial and error as different skin types will react differently to different creams and you have to find what is comfortable for your little baby. You need something that soothes and heals and also creates a barrier from further rashes. Make sure that you wash the bottom every time and dry it first before putting any cream on as this will aid in the healing process.

Bepanthem has worked a treat for me and my little boy -

Good Luck, i hope you find something that really works for your little one.

Bepanthen is the best is has the highest amount of a certain ingrediant which i cannot think what it is at the moment, otherwise paw paw cream is good, then if not use sudocream.

Bepanthen. It's thick and is still there on the next change so you know your baby is still protected

To get rid of the initial rash I recommend getting your pediatrician to prescribe one! They can give you something to clear it up in 2 days. Thats what I did and after the rash went away I slapped on a whole bunch of vaseline and he rarely got anymore. They sell the baby scented vaseline now!

If you are still nursing, try breast milk, or just pure Aloe Vera

I use Aloe for everything, I never leave home without my bottle.



Prescriptions with cortisone or canesten are steroids and are waaay to harsh, try something more pure and natural on your baby first.



Wash the area with warm salty water (avoid using soap for a few days, it can increase the irritation), pat dry, if you can, let your baby have a diaper free day especially if you are at home, it works great.

After a bowel movement wash again with warm salty water, try not to further irritate the skin by constant wiping.



The affected area needs to breath, vaseline can slow this process down.



hope this helps

I had issues with finding a diaper rash cream that works and the best that I found (and pediatrician recommended) is boudreaux's Butt Paste... yellow tube. Kinda pricey but works the first time put it on thick then coat with powder so it doesn't wipe off in the diaper and wait you will have results by the time your next change try it it's awesome

Hi I'm from Canada,
First before you put anything on wash and dry the area.
I found Calmospetine(hope i spelled it correctly) the best cream, for my guy. Also more frequent changes so urine or stool is not on the skin. Wash the skin even if just urine as it can be acidic. Hope this helps.

my kids have sensitive skin and the only thing that would clear up butt rash is Resinol you get it at the pharmacy. My kids would blister and bleed with just one poopy diaper and that is the onlything that kept it from blistering and bleeding

You can get a butt paste from the doctor. It works awesome! My daughter was sick and had a bad rash, we got this prescribed and within two applications it was almost gone.

i found that purchasing a small tube of 1% hydrocortisone and a small tube of canesten worked wonders! just apply a small amount of each. my daughter had HORRIBLE diaper rash, so bad i had to get a prescription for it. when that ran out and the rashes kept coming back i found that mixture i mentioned was a wonderful cheap alternative. took the rash away in 2 days, max.

I use Ihle's Paste and then a layer of Vaseline on top of that - It was recommended to us by a doctor at Sick Kids here in Toronto. We have had no diaper rash since then. You can get it at the drug store in the first aid section. Hope that this helps!

Baby Aquaphor is what I use. It works wonders!!! Works for diaper rashes, dry skin, and many more. You can get it at Walmart or Target but its a little pricey. $14 bucks for a 14oz jar. But it will last you forever! I hope this helps

Butt Paste is awesome, and really does get rid of a rash VERY FAST, i really only had to use it a few times though. someone said it smells like chocolate and i think they are crazy because to me it smelled HORRIBLE, but it worked!

I use pawpaw cream! its the only thing that works for my son and it clears it up in a few days. Its natural and cheap and its just great!!

[deleted account]

i used something called skin fix butt paste. i dont know where you can buy it, i got it from a welcome wagon basket when my daughter was born. its amazing though. its anti-yeast, anti-fungal, so you can use it at every diaper change and they wont end up with a yeast infection like if you're using penaten or some creams like that.

I think Sudocrem is the best. But the absolute best thing is to try to keep a diaper off.
