My son Abel is ten months old and has his first ever diaper rash and he is miserable! I have changed about 15 diapers today using powder, A&d, Vaseline, bathing,etc but his hiney is still so red! I read about maalox, how would I go about mixing that with the A&d ointment??

Try using warm water only to clean his bottom don't wipe but rather rinse in the tub or sink, pat dry. Then leave the diaper off as long as you can stand to do so to let it begin healing. Once you put the diaper back on put a really thick coating of cream to coat his skin and keep the messes away, also change diapers immediately no matter how many you go through.
If it becomes a yeasty rash (not the typical female kind) you canuse a small amount of jock itch cream Walmart has the lowest cost generic (anti fungal) to speed healing. You can tell if yeasty by googling pictures, it is real specific looking and uncomfortable.
