5 Comments for the Diaper Rash Home Remedy

Amy

Here is a home remedy for diaper rash (I dont think simply recommending a store bought medication is a 'home remedy.')

My baby rarely gets diaper rash because I let her play naked most of the time. This is not usually a problem because she uses the bathroom at a particular pattern and I can expect it. But accidents do happen, so I make sure she is on a wipe-able surface like a hard floor or a pad under her.

At the first sign of diaper rash I give her a 10 minute sitz bath with a spoonful of baking soda.

Then I give her new water with a couple spoons of regular plain uncooked oatmeal. You can even use a coffee grinder on the oatmeal if you want, but its not necessary. Just dont use flavored oatmeal or ones with additives.

When I have to put the diaper on her, like if we're going out, I put virgin coconut oil on her, or virgin olive oil if I dont have coconut oil.

How it works:

Coconut oil is a natural anti bacterial and anti fungal agent. Olive oil is rich in vitamin E. Oatmeal is anti-inflammatory. Baking soda is alkaline and neutralizes acid. Sometimes the acids in foods give babies diaper rash. (However, your baby's diaper rash may be caused by an alkaline problem like urine, so if baking soda doesnt help, at first try a sitz bath with a little vinegar instead.)
