i have 2 kids and i have found that powder aggravates the diaper rash... i use Eucerin Aquaphor healing ointment. its for diaper rash, cuts, dry skin, and protects chaffed skin from wetness. it works great and it clears it up in just a few days depending on how bad it is. hope this helps!!!!! good luck

I use vasaline! I was always told not to use babypoweder cause it can cause infections. And when i would use diper rash otiment it seem to burn my daughter. So i always used vasaline and it seem to heal it faster to.

Hi, I'm not sure where in the world you are but I use a wonderful product called Sudacrem ... it's wonderful for everything from rashes, to cuts, bites etc and even helps with my excema. Hope that helps.

I have tried a few different diaper rash creams the best one that I found to work quickly, relives he "pain" is Desitin, they have it in rappid relief. I don't suggest using baby powder because when the baby pees or poops it tends to stick to the skin making it worse. I also wouldn't use a lotion because that could cause a burning sensation in the area of the diaper rash if applied directly too it.

My nephew had a problem with Luvs diapers but so far my son hasnt but i have used A&D on him it seems to work the best but every baby is different the johnsons 3 in 1, aquaphor, balmex and several others did nothing for him so you just have to kind of experiment around and see what works best for her i hope this helps

Best thing I ever used with my child was something called Pink Xav (pronounced Salve). At my pharmacy where I work you have to buy it behind the counter. It cleared up EVERYTHING with my son. Just be careful because it does stain!

I used Desitin. It cleared up the rash in a day. I also used it even when he did not have a rash to protect his skin and prevent a rash from occuring. I reapplied every diaper change. It worked very well. He had very few rashes the whole time he was in diapers. We still use it today. He sometimes gets a rash when he goes swimming. He asks for the Desitin - it soothes the burn immediately.

I went through this with my oldest daughter who's precious little bottom would not clear up no matter what the Dr gave us or I tried, Well one of the old southern ladies my mother knew told my mother a little secret about diaper rash, It is a kind of yeast infection, so she gave my mother a tub of yeast infection OTC medicine and even though it sounded odd to me. I tried it. Guess what within hours I could see a difference and it was all cleaned up within days. so in my diaper bag I carried powder wipes diapers and yeast infection medicine. She never had another infection that lasted more than a day, because at the first sign I would put it on her and it healed right up.

I hope one of these replies might of helped by now lol But if not when my kids ever had a rash that wouldnt go away, the only thing that cleared it up was Daktozin cream. Its a type of kids thrush cream, tried EVERYTHING else but this cleared it up in few applications!

this is a grandma handed down treatment. i swear by it!!! when everything else fails. use crisco. i know it sounds weird. but i use on my son and my nephews when they were babies. it would be so bad to the point if you even touched their bottoms it would about kill them. i use it everytime and it works like a CHARM. day or two at the latest it had it completely cured!

Boudreaux's Butt Paste has worked every time for me. My son never really had a problem with it, I think because with boys you can use powder to keep things dry. I used to use desitin but it just didnt cut it. Bourdeaux's is more expensive but not really cuz it heals it faster so you dont have to use as much. I bought a jar like 4 months ago and still have like half left. It also smells better. Also try not wiping after every diaper change if its just pee. The wiping and added moisture irritates the area.

The absoloute best cream out there is called 'TRIPLE PASTE'. Its available over the counter - but it used to be that you could only get it with a RX(ask your pharmacist if you dont see it on the shelf - it comes in a tube and a tub - blue and white packaging). Its a little pricey and I was hesitant to but it myself at 1st - but have used nothing else since - (and the tube will last you a LONG time) - GOOD LUCK!

Maybe try changing diapers. My daughter can't wear certain ones as she develops a rash from them. I also use Penaten cream. Sometimes the perfumes etc. in the diapers can cause a reaction with baby's sensitive skin. I hope you have some luck! :)

There is a diaper rash cream called "Dr. Smith's", and it works absolute wonders! I've tried every cream/lotion/powder out there and this was the only one that completely healed the rash with a couple/few days. :)

If it is super bad - really red, maybe to the point of bleeding - use small dabs of triple antibiotic ointment, but be careful not to get it in her genital area; that could cause ever more problems, and use it only on the worst areas. Generic A&D Cream will help to clear it up but you have to change the diaper as soon as it is dirty - urine or pooh. You also have to clean off any ointment or cream with each change. Once it clears up, you can use A&D cream or ointment as a skin protectant but, again, you have to clean the area, and dry it good before applying, with each change. Balmex also works well. My daughter never had diaper rash. Hope this helps!

I Swear by Triple Paste! Its pricier than the rest buy oh so worth it, the rash clears up within hours, I apply it to the babies diaper area when I see any redness and it goes away within the next diaper change or 2. Ever since I started using it they do not get any rashes.

Hands down aAre the following. Petrolium Jelly (really bad rash), and any diaper rash cream that has only these two ingredients - titanium dioxide and zinc oxide. My babies never had a mark or rash left on their bottom.

I personally recomend Boudreaux’s Butt Paste! It was the ONLY thing that worked on her. http://www.buttpaste.com/BLButtPaste.php You should be able to buy it at Walmart or Kmart. Some Pharmicies also carry it. It is the only Butt cream I found that you can buy in Convenient sizes of 1oz, 2oz, 3oz and 4oz tubes, 16oz jar and single foil pack. call 1-800-BLAIREX (1-800-252-4739) or (812) 378-1864 to find a location near you. Or, order online from Drugstore.com.

Vaseline is the best for the babies bottom. Corn starch is very good for a diaper rash. I have four and the oldest is 29. Those two I ve used for many years. When the grand kids arrive it was used on them and I hae 6. My Mother and her Mother used the same method.

It could be a yeast or fungal infection...so if it keeps up i would go to the dr. But the best butt cream i've ever used is Burts Bees diaper cream....its expensive...like $12 a tube but i swear by it!!!
