Homemade Diaper Cream
my husband is in the medical field. These are tried and true diaper rash remedies that he recommends to his patients. Try mixing equal parts of liquid benedryl and maalox. Then blend regular plain oatmeal into a fine powder. Mix the fine oatmeal powder with the liquid ingredients to form a paste. Put on diaper rash every few hours during the day. The other thing that helps is to add baking soda to the bath water and bath them a couple of times. If you do a baking soda bath at the first sight of redness it will usually take care of it right away.
Not a daily recipe, but more of an emergency help for skin excoriated from diarrhea or diaper rash, baby or adult.
Pat the red and raw area with cotton ball or other soft material with Maalox or Milk of Magnesia. Diarrhea stool has digestive juices that irritate the skin, and these medications nutralize the acid and give instant relief
