I gave my son a baking soda bath once when he had a terrible rash... everyone said that that's what I should do- he didn't seem to like being submerged in the water, though. I would suggest the sponge bath- but make sure you do clean his heiney well. Let him run around nakie for awhile too.
A cream that works great is Clotrimazole Anti fungal cream at 1%-2% concentrations. It is for athlete's foot or vaginal infections, but 2 drs and a pharmacist all recommended this cream to me- it cleared my sons butt up in 2 days. I don't use it daily, but when his rashes get out of control, i swear by it. ($7 at Walgreens/drugstore)
