I use Butt- Paste works wonders when she has a rash. I change her diapers more frequently so she doesn't get more burned. If the diaper rash creams don't work the doctor prescribed an antifungal cream to get rid of her rash. that was only once since she was on antibiotics at the time. To prevent rashes I always put Vaseline specially at night since she sleeps about 12 hours.

Bepanthen- Antiseptic Cream, Daktozin, Covitol or Covitol with only a few drops of Tea Tree Oil, Medi-Honey, Anti-Fungal Creams

The rash is caused by the thrush, in Aus you can get a nappy cream to treat thrush nappy rash, so not only treating the oral thrush you need to treat the other end... thrush goes right through their system, so it makes them feel horrible... the yeast infection creams will work because they are treating the thrush nappy rash

mild yeast infection cream works miracles...my daughter had blisters and had blood the doctor told me to change her as often as possible and to apply that cream. It was like canestan

I'm new here but since you said that the poor little guy has thrush it sounds more like a yeast infection. I know, I know it sounds nuts but my youngest had the same problem and they gave me an RX for it. If you've tried everything over the counter, call your doc and make sure it's not a yeast infection. Let us know how it goes. God bless!

Hello, this may sounds weird but a friend of mine told me to use yeast infection cream and that worked wonders! I already use Balmex which I think is the best product out there, but my little girl got a bad diaper rash after having poop in her pants for maybe five minutes and the infection cream cleared it up to no redness in one diaper change! Don't know if it was good to use, but when you need something and you use it once, I don't see the harm :)

My pediatrician recommended rubbing Mylanta to ease the burning on her bottom, and then a very thick diaper rash cream. I use Desitin, and I actually apply it to every diaper change to prevent diaper rash. It has been very effective - my daughter has only had one minor rash! :)

Lotrimin worked for Brandon.. it is used for athletes foot and jock itch.. it cleared up his diaper rash in 2 days.. You can find it at any pharmacy

yea you can use lotrimine.. my son had the same and that was one of the things that he had me put on him. I was also told to use baby powder and A&D ointment also works.

My daughter had the same. Used a very mild cortizone cream and loads of Penaten (zinc oxide cream in Canada). I let her go without a diaper as much as possible and changed her as soon as her diaper was wet. Also had to give Tylenol one night as it was so painful she could hardly walk and I had to dip her in a warm bath at diaper changes because wiping hurt so badly. It took about 4 days for it to disappear completely.

here in australia the supermarket or drug store has a nappy rash cream

Simply apply the 'Soothing & Healing Nappy Rash Cream' thickly at every nappy change. Healing will start overnight

Apply at each nappy change until your bubba's skin is normal again.
