hi

try a cup of baking soda to a tub of water.(it will make the tub slippery be careful) use only wet washcloth no wipes and be sure to pat bottom dry. leave baby out of diaper as much as possible it helps to dry the rash.

good luck

Aveno baby diaper rash cream (only thing that has cured and has kept away my sons teething rashes) or Ihles Paste... If those fail go for water based gellies like Vaseline. Hope this helps.

"Resovle nappy rash cream" I swear by it, you can get it at the chemist in a small white and green tube!

i have to agree with joan johnson baking soda works amazingly in a bath and my dr. says to stay away from powders

I havent tried this before but I've seen it in another post. If your breastfeeding put your breastmilk on the rash.? lol I guess it couldnt hurt to try.

If you like all natural cures, try "Mari Magic Skin Healer". It works wonders!! I used it when my baby had open sores on her bottom from diaper rash--it was done in 3 days. It is a bit expensive, but a little bit goes a long way. You can use it for eczema, bug bites, dry skin...It is truly magic :)

for my kids, vaseline works wonderful... you will have to put loads and loads and everytime you wipe or wash their battocks, you will have to reapply...

dexpanthenol ointment will help a lot. when it gets better change it with zinc cream. don't forget give ur baby a diaper free time after changing his diaper.:)

My girlfriend had me try a black tea bath. Make the tea first and then pour it into a warm tub and let the baby soak! It helps, do it as often as needed until the rash is gone...

Paw Paw cream and Calendula Oil is great and natural and as much nappy free time as possible.
I added some salt to the bath water and let them sit in that for a while.
Depending on how bad it is you may have to get an antifungal type cream (Hydrozal.......spelling?) and follow up with some curash powder.
I am not a fan of powders either but I had to do this once when my child's rash was so bad. It did clear it up so that is was no longer weeping and then I used calendula and salt water baths.

My son would get rashes so bad they bled. His doctor recommended layering powder, vaseine, and ointment. The best powder is J&J medicated cornstarch powder. It is great stuff. Also a&d zinc oxide cream works great. I have also used aquaphor. It works as well.

Bag Balm works fantastically. My sisters, mom and I all use it. Slather it on nice and thick every time you change a diaper. My little girl just had an awful rash too. I used it 24/7 and it cleared up twice as quick as using the baby creams. (I also like Burt's bees babies ointment)

I use A and D ointment on my son. Seems to work quite well. Now my niece used to get rashes so bad her poor behind was just raw. My sister(now this might sound crazy) but she bought Cow Udder Cream. It was amazing! No burning, and it healed right up.

I have 3 kids, when they had nappy eash, I always swore by zinc cream, it always helped. As a nurse, i use it on my elderly dementia patients as well! Hope this helps!

Vegetable oil or there's some stuff called "Monkey Butt" that you can get at like Walgreens and Wal Marts, its a powder and works really well!

first you have to make sure that the area that the rash is in is dry. and if its bad then wake for giving bath bc the water will sting and make it itch. baby powder dries it ok. but i would switch out the cornstarch and the butt paste. put cornstarch on with diaper off and when diaper on use the paste

Cornstarch and lots of diaper free time. Make sure the rash is bone dry, apply the constarch and baby will be fine. You can put it on as a powder or if you prefer as a paste.
