This sounds crazy, it did to me anyway, BUTTERMILK! Yep, just coat that little tushie with some warm buttermilk and it should clear right up. It not only worked for us, but it has worked wonders for many of my mommy friends. Of course, your little man will smell a tiny bit sour while you're treating him. But hey, short term pain-long term pleasure! Good luck!

I have used Olive Oil and also Vitamin E. Others actually seemed to peel my sons skin off, even the diaper rash ones.

Hi, I use pawpaw ointment, you can buy it from wollies or a chemist, its an all purpose ointment so you can also use it when you child has an itchybite or a little sore, it works wonders :)

I do mostly cloth diapers and disposables at night or on the go. Zeph has super sensitive skin that is prone to rash so i do several things:
1. Chlorine free diapers (expensive but all others make him rashy)
2. Natural chlorine free wipes. All others have nasty, toxic chemicals (parabens etc)
3. No soap, shampoo etc. I think it's all marketing hype. Water does wonders
4. Skip the lotion, just more fragrance, chemicals, etc.
5. Go TOTALLY PURE on diaper rash cream. Check out Earth Mama, Angel Baby. Personally I made the most awesome miracle cream by seeping herbs like chamomile, calendula and lavendar in organic olive oil, then blending in organic cocnut oil, beeswax, cocoa butter, essential oils, and emulsifing it in the blender with pure (edible) aloe vera gel. Cleared up his horrible drool rash from teething and winter weather. If we flag, it comes back. He gets it massaged in every night after his bath.

My William is really sensitive too. I used hydrocortizone cream once a day and boudreaux butt paste with every diaper. Also, after his bath time, letting him air dry will help the tender skin. Good luck!

My son got really bad rash when he was younger and really sick..we were told to use zinc and castor oil ointment, if it doesnt clear up or if it bleeds you might want to take him to doctor because it may be thrush.
Beebalm is also a really good product.
