  • take him a bath, let it air dry then put diaper cream along with baby powder.

  • Give him a warm bath with 1/2 a cup of baking soda. Let him air dry for awhile and put lots of diaper cream on before his diaper. He should be right as rain in the morning :)

  • Corn Starch!!! It works great. bathe him and dry good, very carefully. Put cornstarch on everything red.

  • The bath may be painful, I love, love Desetine OVERNIGHT diaper rash cream, I swear by this stuff. My DD had a rash from a very sour bowel movement one time. Was at walmart and and about an hour away from home. Bought some of that and put it on her there and by the time I was home it had already looked awesome, it was totally gone by the morning.

  • thrush most likely because the rash can spread and covers a large area.

  • bath, diaper cream, baby powder, and if it is really bad then some medicine for pain
