I'd heard about using Mylanta to clear up diaper rash and decided to try it when Triple Paste (my old emergency standby) wasn't completely clearing it up. I dab it on with a cotton ball, let it dry, and cover it with barrier cream per the pediatrician's suggestion. It's working, but slowly. I'm seeing a lot of stuff online raving about the quick results of Mylanta/Maalox with cornstarch, but nothing about how to apply it.
Do you mix the antacid and cornstarch before applying, or add the cornstarch to the diaper after like you would if you used baby powder? If you have any other home remedy you use for diaper rash you're willing to share, I'd love to read about it.
