Best way to get rid of diaper rash!

[deleted account] ( 16 moms have responded )

So we went on a trip and Tanner got a diaper rash and I've used the butt paste and desitin...so far NO results.. just looks worse! I'm changing him constantly. What worked best for everyone else? I might try the Aveeno

My little Ryan actually had severe diaper rash because he was having a reaction to his formula and his bum actually blistered... the thing that worked for us was hosing him off in the sink instead of using wipes whenever he pooped, patting him off with a paper towel, and then putting on the Butt Paste. Good luck!

I swear by Penaten...we put it on kind of thick and its usually cleared up within one or two diaper changes. I've also had Sudocream recommended too..

I mix Desitin, butt paste and a&d to seal it on there. Works like a charm for us. Also my little one always gets the really bad rash where it starts to bleed. I feel so bad for the little one.

I agree with Stacey. Don't use the butt wipes unless you have to. If you're at home, or at someone's house, just take your baby to the sink and wash him off, pat him dry, and diaper him. I find that using the wipes for both of my daughters gave them rash.

I use a hair dryer to blow dry my son's bottom at every diaper change and it works wonders to keep diaper rash away.

You should get this herbal diaper rash cream from arbonne. They have other baby stuff like shampoo, oil, lotion, sunscreen, etc, but this diaper rash cream is the only thing I use from arbonne and I swear by it. My little girl started getting just a little red on the bum and I started using this stuff right away. She's never had any redness since. You can get it online at arbonne.com and it is a bit pricy but it works!!

I use Johnson's medicated baby powder every diaper change. My husband would hate putting cream on the babies butt so I got the powder. Husband doesn't get his hands dirty and Owen's butt hasn't had a rash since he was 3 weeks old!

My son had really bad diaper rash that I couldn't get rid of and the doctor told me to be careful of what I fed him. No citrus for example. It helped a little but then a friend of mine told me to use an antacid like Milk of Mag, mixes with baby powder to a paste, he has been rash free for 3 weeks now.

When my son was a NB, he got TERRIBLE diaper rash for about 2 weeks before I tried vaseline. Worked like a charm! (His butt was red as could be, blistered, raised and bled when 'dabbing' him off) Now to keep both of my kids butts healthy all the time is cream on at night and were good! It's so cheap compared to the alternitive. I tried the butt paste, did nothing more than desitin. Doctor recommended trying the vaseline. -- Also, I know it's hard especially since they are wiggling so much now, but the very best thing you can do is to leave his bottom exposed to the air. GOOD LUCK!
