Air it out
Try coconut oil
Corn starch at every diaper change.

This. With my son we ended up switching to cloth because he always had rashes. Good luck!

Air it out

Use something like Desitin

A  paste of cornstarch and water

Gob on vaseline...........it forms a barrier

Could be a yeast infection. Take him to the doctor.

Myson is super sensitive. We alternate between Boudreaux Butt Paste (a thicker pastier cream than the plain white zinc oxide ones), Anti Monkey Butt (has calamine and works wonders), and baby powder.

Also, he gets 10-15 minutes of naked time after his bath every night and I make sure his skin is completely dry before putting on a diaper when changing him.

Use a blow dryer to dry up any moisture and use corn starch to help it heal.
