If it doesn't clear up with a conventional diaper cream, try canesten or nystatin - maybe it is a yeast infection (very common in babies)

All you need is Vaseline and baby powder...back in the old days Vaseline cured everything and it still does.

Try butt paste! First, before you use a wipe rinse it with water and drain it out so its a little damp. Then gently pat the wipe on your baby's butt, than use the butt paste. The reason why, is the wipes have certain perfumes in them that can irratate their skin. I hope this helps!

I am a big fan of Boudreaux's Butt Paste. I live in southern Louisiana, and although I no longer have small children, I DID use it on our youngest and it works GREAT!! It's even good for other rashes, etc.

Try A+D OINTMENT for diaper rash and skin protectant, that works perfectly and heals really fast...I perfer that over any other.

Definitely Desitin! As a mom of 6 this is the ONLY diaper rash cream I will ever use. This also works great on the neck if it gets chafe. My children were kinda plump and had little "fat folds" on their necks so sometimes when they drooled or somehow their bottles leaked, if I didn't catch it right away and the folds were moist I would use a small fingertip of Desitin to prevent a rash. I was constantly wiping their mouths AND necks!

I have had 3 girls and my oldest is 15 and youngest is 1. I have tried everything and with this one I have used Boudreauxs Butt Paste and it is AWESOME!!! I wish they had this stuff 15 years ago. One application and the rash seems to disappear. Hope this helps!

Also, Stop Using Reg Baby wipes, when babies have diaper rash, use PAMPERS SENSITIVE WIPES!

Penaten creme, it's a Johnson & Johnson product made in EU. I found it a place that specializes in German food and such. It works better then any other I have tried.

Hi! I use a cream called Corona. It is in a yellow tube with a red lid and usually you have to ask for it at the pharmacy but you don't need a prescription. It is really a horse linament but works great on diaper rash, cuts scrapes, burns and anything else you can think of. My grandfather used it the whole time I was growing up and it works really fast. You can put it on and by the next day the diaper rash is gone. I have used it on both my girls and love it!

I have three boys and I babysit the only thing I have ever used and will only use because there are no chemicals to harm the babies skin is corn starch that you cook with it soaks up all the moisture and the rash will be better in a day

I always used ButtPaste on my son and it worked great. Plus has natural ingredients like oatmeal which makes it smell good.

I had the same problem and made my own diaper rash cream and it worked wonderfully...the only ingredients you will need is petrolum jelly and maylox...using a table spoon messure out equal amounts of both..put the jelly in a pan on the stove top..on medium heat until it becomes a liquid or has melted..then stir the maylox and mix until it is completely combined...put in a baby food jar or a small bowl with a lid and shake until it starts to harden..once it hardens put in the fridge..marking the container so it does not get eaten..once it hardens take it out of the fridge and us as needed

I LOVE boudreaux's butt paste. That stuff is amazing. Also Burt's Bees diaper ointment does great too. It just smells funny. Boudreaux's is scent free.

I really think it depends on the condition. For thrush, I first apply a layer of Canesten, followed by a barrier product like Vaseline or even Lansinoh. For ordinary diaper rash, a product high in Zinc, like Sudocrem (Brilliant!!), works very well. I love to sprinkle cornstarch powder over any applied cream - it might make for a messier change next time, but I find it keeps my baby more comfy and content☺ Another bit of advice I found extremely useful - do try to wash baby's bum a couple of times each day, rather than only using wipes; and don't forget the healing powers of the sun on a sore baby-bum! I keep a stash of linen savers for this purpose - LOL!

Ihe's Paste - ask for at a pharmacy, my ped recommended it when my daughter's skin starting bleeding it was so bad. The thicker the better and make sure the butt is completely dry first. It worked wonders and very quickly.
