Help!! 2 yr old has a diaper rash!!

My dd has had a cold for the last couple of days so she also has had real dirty diapers today. Just changed her diaper and saw she had a rash and I have no money at all to get any rash cream. Please tell something I can make at home or until I can scrape some change together!!

  • Corn starch, lots of air time, baths and it'll go away in no time!!

  • Regular cornstarch works great instead of powder to keep baby drier.

  • Oh, and vaseline works to keep the air off of the diaper rash...

  • Not sure about the Summer's Eve unless the diaper rash is also accompanied by that "not so fresh" feeling! :)

  • I take the other approach, when in doubt, air it out. Diaper free roaming and a luke warm bath to keep things clean, no wiping.

  • Air it out. Which means not to diaper immediatly after a change. Also, try vaseline if you have some. It will create a barrier.
