VINEGAR AND A&D OINTMENT Guaranteed to work!!! My son at age 2 months had severe diaper rash to the point he was actually bleeding. My doctor told me to use vinegar, and I thought he was crazy that it would burn his bottom. But I tried every cream out there and nothing worked but this. Here's what you do: Run a sink full of water, add 2 or 3 capfuls of vinegar (little more for a large sink). Then dip babys bottom in water and splash it up on his bottom. Next lay baby on his tummy and use a blow dryer to dry his bottom (hold dryer far away and careful not to burn his skin). Last step is coat the area with A&D ointment. If you do this about 3 to 4 times a day it will be completely gone by the next day. Also do not use baby wipes! No matter what brand or type these burn and hurt a baby with severe rash. I cut up a receiving blanket and used those as wipes while he had his rash. Another tip...vinegar takes the heat out of a sunburn and you wont peel :) Hope everybody uses this tip to help their little ones because it works wonders :)

A&D works awesome....I use it on my tattoos also. I am going to try this method because my boy has a rash that almost looks like welts. I tried putting himm in a warm bath and it seems to have irritated it more then it was. :o( Hope this works other wise its the ER or doc office asap.

My 11 month old daughter had a horrible diaper rash that was causing her a lot of pain. She would cry walking into her room realizing she was going to get her diaper changed. I had used desitin and butt paste which worked the only other time she got a rash this bad. I used the vinegar rinse, which she loved being naked afterwards to air dry, and she did get a lot of relief of her pain! Then I put A&D ointment on her rash, she fussed but NOTHING like before, and sprinkled gold bond's baby powder on her rash and a bit in her diaper. By the time she woke up from her nap, the rash was already looking less irritated and she was not in as much pain! This is day 2 of doing this and it's almost gone!
