Yes, it's called CORONA Ointment. It's actually for sores on farm animals. You have to get it at a tractor supply or farm store. It's a yellow tube (or can) with a red top. One of kids used to get raw hamburger looking bloody diaper rash. A neighbor recommended this and it was the only thing that worked. It seals out the wet as it heals, so urine doesn't sting when baby wets. I love the stuff! Be sure you dry the butt really well before putting it on, it won't stay on if it's wet.

When My son got a really bad rash my peditician suggested Lotrimin AR. It is an antifungal cream used to treat conditions such as athlete's foot, jock itch, and ringworm, it is also the same active ingredient in the products sold to treat vaginal yeast infections so if your baby has a yeast infection this will work. It is a little pricey but will clear up the rash in 2-3 days.

I agree with the cornstarch. My daughter had a really nasty rash when she was about 18months old. The only thing that worked was to take some really soft baby wash cloths (because she would scream if we used wipes!) and soak them in a bag with water and cornstarch. I used them at every change and sent them to the daycare for them to use as well. Then I'd just throw them in the wash at night. Within about a week she was back to normal.

Hi,i use Cornflour that most of us have in the pantry. Apply it at every nappy change...Amazing stuff.

When u get a dirty nappy wash the bum dont wipe so that it doesnt irritate further and spread. Also air it out and let it breathe
Jennifer - posted on 11/19/2009
AIR that little bum out. Use corn starch instead of powder, and change the diaper often. I mean like every half hour, until its cleared out. Are you feeding something that has a lot of acids in it?

Vaseline!!! My daughter screamed everytime I would use Destine or Butt paste!! It cleared up by the next day!!

Baby powder with pure corn starch. I know it sounds simple but it works!

I have a 14 month old i also tried other products for diaper rash my mother-in-law who is a forner RN tipped me off on this diaper rash product and now i swear by it.
its Aveno Baby diaper rash cream you can get it just about anywhere its oatmeal based so its an all natural product. I also use it when my little girl gets those little scratches and red marks on her face from where she scratched herself it works just as well as vasaline and clears up the marks with in a couple of days.
hope this helps and your little one diaper rash is gone soon

if it is little red spots then use jock itch cream. red spots means its yeast. My daughter had diaper rash for a month before we tried it and it went away in like two days. only use it if the rash is spotty though

Are you sure it's not a yeast infection? I found out with my daughter that regular yeast infection cream (over the counter) keeps her completely cleared of both infection and diaper rashes. She use to get both all the time and in varying degrees of seriousness. Something to think about.

TRIPLE PASTE!!! IT is the best stuff! my doctor recommended it and it is really great
Virginia - posted on 11/19/2009
one thing to consider is the brand of diapers you are using... all of my children were allergic to pampers and luvs.. the stuff used to asorb the icky stuff from the baby is what some babies are allergic to, also most generic diapers and wipes break my kids out.. I only us huggies and the sensitive skin baby wipes along with cornstarch powder. One thing to also consider is letting them "dryout" or going with out a diaper for a little bit just to have the skin breathe, if you use too much diaper ointments it dries the skin out also, which combats the problem... sometimes it is a fungal not a rash and you have to use anti fungal creams to get rid of it. There are so many things you really should try other than the standby of desitin and resinol.... your child urine or poop may be too harsh for their skin to handle so the use of a & D ointment after every diaper change to act as a barrier might just do the trick, use that with some cornstarch baby powder (because it is smoother on the skin and absorbs better) and a clean diaper... change it after every wet not letting it sit on the skin... I only say that because sometimes you have to wait to change.. if you know what I mean, I have 4 almost 5 children so I have been there.... I really hope this helps because I battled the never ending diaper rash with my son and finally got it under control using the trial and error techiniques I described earlier.

Try lamisil, it may have turned into a yeast infection if it got really bad!
Holly - posted on 11/18/2009
The thing that has always worked for me is a mixture of a lot of things- vasoline, desitin, whatever... and a very thick coating of it. also, ask your doctor but sometimes it may require Nystatin or another anti-fungal. Also, as much time as possible to air dry- leave the diaper off when you can.

There was a coupon in the paper last Sunday for Triple Paste.

Triple Paste works great!!
Jessica - posted on 11/17/2009
My daughter had a horrible diaper rash that I couldn't get rid of with anything. I used every ointment there was and nothing would work, until a friend of mine told me to try using just baby powder when I changed her diaper, and my mom suggested that I use a warm wet wash cloth or put her in the bathtub to rinse off her bottom when she had a dirty diaper. I did both and within three days the rash was completely gone. You'll also have to change the diaper very often. Now I use Triple Paste every time she shows a sign of a rash and it goes away quickly. Good luck! :D

Call your pediatrician, it may be a yeast infection. ~♥~
Sunrise - posted on 11/17/2009
One ointment not mentioned that I believe to be more natural... Bag Balm for normal diaper rashes. Anything that is not clearing up with "normal" treatments I agree, call your pedi it's likely a fungal or yeast based rash that will need something a bit stronger. We recently had a script for Majic Butt Cream for Kiera's first (and hopefully last) rash. We use cloth diapers and they naturally breathe better and thus prevent rashes. We were also told to give Kiera baths with some baking soda added to the water and make sure she was dry before putting on another diaper (it was even suggested to blow dry her diaper area). If you think it's being caused or irritate further by the little one's bowels then give them yogourt (as much as 3 contianers a day) to help get the bowels back on the right 'track'. Good luck!

Try pinxalve. You can find it at most drug stores. It is a pink paste that is ver thick. But it coats very well. My daughter doesn't get diaper rash very often, but when she doe I use this and it clears it up within a day.
My only other concern would be if it's a fungal or yeast infection. In this case, I would highly recommend you talk to the pediatrician.
Caryn - posted on 11/17/2009
I wouldn't recommend putting things like vaseline, desitin, balmex or anything of that nature on a yeast infection. Those will lock in the moisture which will only make it worse. For a yeast infection you need an anti-fungal cream/powder but I wouldn't recommend just buying one OTC, talk to your pediatrian and see which one they prefer. You don't want to use something that would do more harm than good.

My son's pediatrician advised us to use Alfacort ointment. It really works! after putting ointment you will see the result within the day. It's just OTC medicine.

My son had a a bad yeast infection diaper rash. I mixed desitin, vaseline, and clotrimazole and it cleared right up. Good luck!
Michelle - posted on 11/16/2009
When my daughter had thrush really bad last year, our pediatrician gave us something called Clotrimazole. Believe it or not it is primarily for Athlete's foot being that it is an Antifungal cream, but it works wonders on our daughter. We completely stopped using everything else. You can buy pretty much anywhere, we just buy the Walgreen's generic brand since it is cheaper. Good Luck!

On my daughter i used Timodine its presciption only and works a treat for my daughter when she gets a rash during teething times.
Caryn - posted on 11/15/2009
Resinol is the only thing I can use for my son for 'normal' rashs. He tends to get a lot of yeast infections and for that we use Zeasorb powder.
My guess since the desitin and resinol didn't work it may be a yeast infection. Call his ped and see what they want to do..

i have the same problem with my daughter. i use boudreaux's butt paste, and when we went the th dr. he gave us a perscription for it. but my mother in law said if you ask the pharmacist there is this medicine that clears it up even quicker. you put just a drop in their bottle. i never asked them but i'm sure they would know if you describe it too them. hope that helps!
