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.

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 :)

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.

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
