  • I've heard of a lot of people using Aquaphor (sp?) and I did too for a while till I found Grandma El's rash cream. I cloth diaper and needed something safe for DD's dipes. I use ONLY that now and for every thing, diaper rash, drool rash, her eczema. I will never use any thing else!! I highly recommend it for .... well, just about every type of skin rash!

  • My son always had it really bad. We used the Aquaphore, worked awesome.

  • A thin layer of any protectant will work (A&D is my favorite). The only thing you need to be careful about is a yeast infection. My son had it under his chin from drooling. You need to use an anti fungal to get rid of it. We had to go back and fourth weekly between the two in order to get rid of the rash and then the yeast infection. Good luck.

  • I put breastmilk on any and all skin issues. I even use it on my acne. It works better than any medication that I have ever used.
