Yes, make sure it's CREAM and not lotion.  Lotion does not moisturize as well as cream.  Try Aquaphor, like the other posters said, or try some plain old unscented Vaseline.  Eucerin cream also works well.

We use Gold Bond lotion on our son. No outbreaks for 5 months now and going strong.

i'd try cetaphil....

its an adult lotion, but i can put it on raw skin or even open wounds and it doesnt sting like some lotions....

You could try Bag Balm; you can get in your pet section at Wal-Mart.  It a green tin can; about 4.00 dollars I think.  Works great for me.
