My son is half black half white. He has had this diaper rash for a few weeks now. I have taken him to the doctor for it and they prescribed this cream that is not working. I have tried everything I can think of: Desitin, Vaseline, Butt Paste, Disposable diapers (he is normally in cloth). Lots of naked time but that is hard and messy and it does not really help. Thank you!

are you sure it's not yeast? if it is yeast all the diaper creams will not help. try some monostat cream and see if that helps.

Get Aquaphor! That stuff is the best! It will cover the sore itself not just around it and help it to heal! I had a little guy that had really sensitive skin and I used that on him and it worked. It should be in the baby aisle.

Powder with corn starch or sulfer base diaper creams. What does it have to do with him being bi-racial?

Try Bag Balm. Only thing that worked on all of my babies super sensitive bums.

Keep him off the cloth diapers, then you need to try different disposable diapers until you find one that does not cause diaper rash. Also are you giving him water and no apple juice. My grandaughter use to get diaper rashes but only when she drank apple juice. So you might want to check the juices and make sure the acid content is non exist. Hope it works.

do you breastfeed? my daughter gets really bad rashes as well and they usually come up from foods that i eat! I have noticed that once i took certain things out of my diet the rashes cleared right up, also my baby has the most sensitive skin as well so we just have to change her more often than normal. i know some formulas can irritate skin too once they are pooping or peeing them out. it seems like you are doing everything right with the soap, diapers and wipes so maybe baby's diet is the next thing to look at. This was what worked fastest for my little girl because i know i tried everything to and it sucks when they are miserable!!

Tea bags. Just put a tea bag in his diaper the pee will activate something and it will heal it right up. It will stain his butt the 1st day or so and then it will go away. The best and cheapest diaper rash thing my doctor told me to use.

The best home remedy I have always used is cornflour.Yes the kind you have in your kitchen for making white sauce with.Sprinkle that on baby's bum and rub in after every nappy change.

Try Aveeno Baby Diaper Rash cream. Apply to clean skin with every diaper change. Also try the Aveeno Oatmeal Baths, really help baby's skin. If that doesn't work make appointment to a Dermotologist. They can prescribe something better than a regular MD, or Pediatric Doctor.

Vaseline is the worse thing to use. it may bee something that he is eating that is keeping the rash around. I always use butt paste.

Thanks Kaleena I will try that!
Denise I use cloth wipes and diapers (and all natural soap) so that is not the problem.
Any other ideas would be much appreciated. At this point I am willing to try anything. Thank you!

maybe its the kind of wipes you use, have you tried different brands or ask if there is an hypoalergenic kind.

try mixing some milk of magnesium into balmex creamy paste...get a small tupperware container (they make ones for like taking salad dressings--they are very small)...squeeze the paste into the container, then add a small amount of magnesium...the paste will become very runny....stir it until the paste returns to its normal consistency...apply to your child w/ each diaper change...our daughter had a really bad rash from having diarrhea for a week and our pedi recommended this...it worked within 2 days (he said the magnesium combats the acid in poop and pee)
