Baby has a very red diaper rash! I tried zincofax, PC diaper rash cream, corn starch, baby powder, but it's still very red.

Brown some flour in a skillet (until it's close to the colour of peanut butter) and sprinkle some on your little one during diaper changes!! That is all I have used on my little girl!

My son had an allergic reaction to Pedialit and it caused him to get a really bad diaper rash that started bleeding. My friends mom is a Mary Kay consultant and she gave me the Extra Emollient Night Cream to put on and by that night it was gone completely. I used the butt paste and 2 tubes of the A&D cream and that didn't work. Now I just use the Mary Kay cream and that is what i get for baby shower gifts also. A small amount goes a long way. you can also use it for poison ivy and if you get dry spots on your body.

I use Sudocrem for my little boy. It's a brilliant antiseptic cream used after every nappy change. Also after baths i ensure that my little man has baby powder on his bum before i put the antiseptic cream on so that the area of the rash is definitely dry.

ive heard that putting breastmilk on that area then letting it dry before replacing nappy creates a barrier... it might be a yeast infection so use an anti-fungal cream on the affected area and see if this clears it up. for prevention wait til the bottom is completely dry before putting nappy on

i hope this has helped :)

I use Sudocrem or Lucas Paw Paw ointment. You need to use them at each nappie change- they form a protective barrier on the skin and help heal any sores. Like Deidre also said- fresh air is also good- we let our little girl have some "fresh air" time before every bath... Good Luck.

If you don't mind getting some towels or blankets dirty, and if it's not a yeast infection, I find air on the bum works the best! If you live in a warm enough climate sunshine and air for even like five minutes does wonders, but any time with the diaper off is the best remedy

Take your baby to the doctor. Like Michelle said it could be a yeast infection!

Could it be a yeast infection? It will look the same as a diaper rash, but none of those creams will get rid of it. You would have to use the topical cream from Monistat or another company like that.

Try using A&D Ointment and Desitin combined. Use the A&D Ointment first, it will give a protective barrier, then put the Desitin on second, this will help clear the diaper rash first. These are the only things I use now for diaper rashes. If it doesn't clear up or it gets worse call the babies doctor.

I use Penanten cream it works wonders, but you have to put it on after every changing and within a day or two it should start to look better just keep putting it on.
