  • The best thing at the store that worked with my children is Butt Paste. If their rashes are really bad, due to teathing or allergies or being sick, vaseline with a lot of cornstarch on there. But if their rash is kind of like little pimple looking things, it could be a yeast infection on the skin and that need nystatin, or another perscription, from the pediatrician.

  • apply vaseline( to lock out urine from making it worse)
    then sprinkle corn starch.

  • When my daughter had a persistent diaper rash, I stopped using wipes and rinsed/sponged her off under the faucet, then sat her on a towel to air dry. I'd put some baby powder in the diaper and put on lots of butt cream (I prefer Desitin Creamy) before putting the clean diaper on her dry butt. I've also heard that Maalox will help.

  • As the girl above said, use washclothes. I don't use wipes at all anymore, unless we are away from home. The wipes, even the sensitive or unscented ones can burn their butt if they have a rash.

  • Desitin is what I use. It works great!
