  • I use Desitin. I've used A&P Ointment for Diaper Rashes (I believe it is) and it helps soothe, but it doesn't remedy the rash completely. Desitin is the only method that has worked for my kids. If you're having issues you can try the Johnson and Johnson Powder with Cornstarch. That is supposed to help relieve any existing rash and soak up excess moisture in diapers.

    As well, you might have to change the wipes or diapers that you use. My son developed an allergy to the brand/type we were using, so I had to switch to a sensitive, non scented wipe. It worked beautifully.

  • Vaseline. Desitin makes my son itch.

  • I used A&D on my son when he was in diapers and it helped with the rash and when ever he went bm and before bed time I would give him a bath to wash away the germs and then put some more A&D on before the diaper. Doing this cleared up the rash in just a couple of days.

  • Plain Vaseline and cornstarch baby powder (unscented)....all the creams out there would irritate my son's butt....the vaseline & cornstarch powder clears it up in 2 days, 3 tops.

  • My daughter's always turned into a yeast infection and her pediatrician had me put athlete's foot lotion on it and it always made it go away within the second application of it.
