This is what I use to treat diaper rash:

1. PAPER TOWELS (select-your-size) used as wipes. I moisten them in
2. WATER (about 1 cup) that has been mixed with one small drop of BABY SHAMPOO, a PINCH of BAKING SODA and a pinch of SALT (salt is not bad in small doses, saline solution is used for the healing of skin wounds). Sometimes I add a small squirt of HYDROGEN PEROXIDE (First Aid Antiseptic).
3. JOHNSON'S BABY LOTION or EUCERIN DAILY REPLENISHING LOTION
4. BAG BALM
I do an initial wiping with the paper towel halves moistened in the mild antiseptic water.
I do a second wiping with the baby lotion or the Eucerin lotion. I spread it all over and then wipe it off with dry paper towels.
I let the skin air for about 10-20 minutes and then I spread the Bag Balm all over the affected area, just before fitting the new clean diaper.
I have seen it work really well, the skin heals very fast, within a day or two.

Peroxide will actually slow the healing process, so you may want to take that out of your mix. Just saying.....
