We forgo wipes when our daughter has a rash and use a damp washcloth to clean and a dry one to blot dry. The thing that works best for us is the lanolin ointment designed for moms to use for sore nipples from breastfeeding. I used Medela and I know there are other brands too. I apply the lanolin to the irritated skin and then I apply Boudreaux's Butt Paste(zinc ointment) to create a stronger moisture barrier. The Butt Paste alone wasn't enough, I needed something to heal as well as protect and this seems to be the trick!
