What do you gals like to use for treating diaper rash? I just noticed little man is developing a little bit of irritation on his backside! We use the pampers sensitive wipes and haven't noticed anything until today.

I have worked in day cares, and the cream that seems to work the best, in my opinion, is Boudreaux's Butt Paste

Hope your baby is feeling better. I'm new here and just read your post, so sorry for the late response. But, once you have the rash under control it helps to keep it away by putting a protectant on at each diaper change. You don't need to use much just a coating to keep the yuckies off. I like both the regular A&D and the A&D creamy. But any of them that says protectant should work. Good Luck!!

My daughter had a REALLY bad rash at 2 weeks. THe thing that helped was Desitin. It has the highest amount of zinc out of all the brands.



 



IF his rash has little bumps it might be yeast. In that case you can use lotrimin AF and then put a layer of desitin over that.

Both my boys had diaper rashes and I will swear by using Boudreaux's butt paste. But you have to put it on every time you do a diaper change and you will see it better within a day.

We have been using something from the farm store called Corona Udder Budder to prevent rashes. I normally just put it on before bedtime when she will be going the longest without a diaper change. For clearing a rash up we use the Corona Original Ointment for horses and cattle. I know that sounds crazy but it works and is a lot cheaper than the Butt Paste. I actually have Aveeno, Butt Paste, Desitin Creamy and Original and I can't tell that one does better than another.

I use A & D ointment anytime one of my kids had a diaper rash. It was always looking much better by the next diaper change. My daughter also had really bad ezema and this was the only thing that worked.

I have tried Desitin, Boudreaux's Butt Paste, Method Cream, and all prevented further rash but didn't clear up the redness.  Finally I tried Aquaphor (by Eucerin) and it has worked wonders.  Cleared up her rash and we haven't seen any irritation since we started using it.  I know every baby is different so good luck.

The best combo for me is neosporin and corn starch. The diaper rash will be gone in a day! :O)

Hi Lindsay, I use sudocrem cream every nappy change, and give him nappy free time at least  once a day, this seems to help!!

Try to let his bum air dry. My neice had it and that's my brother did to treat it and he use baby powder instead of a cream.
