my daughter had a horrible diaper rash. it just seemed like she woke up one day with open sores on her bottom.

make sure that you haven't changed your brand of diapers, the rash could be an allergic reaction.

when they go to the bathroom there are acids that burn and inflame the rash even more so be sure to get the diaper off quickly. rinse them off in the shower or use a warm wash rag-baby wipes have anti-freeze in them that burns as well. when they are nice and clean apply the equate brand of a+d ointment thickly-about the size of a cherry tomato should do, add more if you need it. it comes in a tube and is no more than $2 located at all wal-marts.

it took me about a month to figure out the best remedy. the next best thing would be destin original nightime formula. avoid juices that have lots of acid, and feeding them yogurt while they have the rash doesn't hurt.

after doing this, her rash went away in about 3 days... completely, redness and all. now to help avoid rashes i use pure cornstarch baby powder and change, change, change!!!

MAKE SURE YOUR CHILDREN DON'T EAT ALOT OF FOODS WITH ACID LIKE TOMATOES. THEY WILL CAUSE DIAPER RASH.

Just an FYI. Baby wipes DO NOT contain anti-freeze. Where do people come up with this stuff? The reason some wipes sting so bad on a rash is, they have alcohol in them. If you buy wipes without alcohol they do not sting.

I have 2 children and A+D ointment DOES NOT work for them. The best thing I have found is to mix desitin and nystatin in a jar and apply it very thick at EVERY diaper change.

I've recently had diaper rash problems with my daughter and warm air from the blow dryer along with A&D Ointment is the only thing that has helped. We've tried almost every brand of diaper cream including Butt Paste, Balmex, Desetin, and Burt's. We also threw away the wipes and started using warm rags!
