  • Poor baby. I used equal parts of Aquafor and Maalox, it cleared up my DD's diaper rash really well, and seemed to help with the pain.

  • My son used to have the same problem. Have you switched diapers or wipes recently? How old is your daughter? He was just a couple of months old when we figured out that he was actually allergic to the diapers we were using. The only ones he could use were Huggies Supreme. Anything else would break his little tush out.

  • as much time without a diaper and warm baths with baking soda were what I used on my sone when he was little. my niece was sick with rotavirus recently and my sister couldn't do anything get help with the diaper rash. I babysat for 2 days and she went diaperless with some shorts on most of the day both days and her bottom went from bright red to light pink.
