DD has had a rash on her bottom since she was sick about 2 weeks ago I will get it healled and looking better and she will poop big and its right back at the begining again I had some nystatin from her yeast infection she had last yr and the did nothing so I am sure its not that kind of rash plus it seems to flare up with her BMs anyhow I went to Wally world and bought damn near every cream they had spent close to 50.00 but if 1 of them works then its worth it she is so uncomfortable and the Pedi. said if the nyastatin didnt work OTCs were my best place to start. this is a list in the poll of every single one I have so opinion are much appreciated Thanks in advance.

Triple paste. When my son was really sick last year, triple paste was the only thing that got rid of it. My pediatrician recommended it to me. I swear by it. One little tube lasts forever because you don't need very much.

My ped told me about Triple Paste and I used it for both of my kids.  My son used to bleed really bad and get yeast infection also.  The Triple paste would clear it up over night.

My grandson is like this after he comes home from being with his mom on  the weekends......I always used A& D ointment then I put Butt Paste on top and in the morning he is almost cured..maybe just a little bit of redness

 I like Aveeno works like a charm.

A long bath in some tepid water with a a few scoops of baking soda works great. Also some time out of the diaper to let her bottom air out does wonders. I always used the butt paste and it worked great for me as well.

A&D works better for my little one diaper rash.

I chose other.  It depends on what the rash is from.  If its yeasty I use olive oil with tto and lo.  I use aloe to sooth, lanolin to protect and hydrate, olive oil to hydrate.  I don't use petrolium based products or alcohol based, no preservatives either.
