  • Same as any other diaper rash - I keep it clean and dry as well as possible, and I slather it in A&D with every diaper change.

  • Desitin diaper rash cream, corn starch, airing it out as often as possible. Keep it as dry as you can though or it can turn into a nasty infection.

  • Doc always told us to allow the child to go without a diaper as much as possible to give it time to dry out. I know,its hard to do that,but,its possible and effective.
