My son began getting diarrhea (pediatrician said it was teething) and very soon after his butt started getting red. At the first site of redness I started putting Boudreaux's Butt Paste and Aveeno Diaper Cream (worked great on my daughter) on him. But the diaper rash kept getting worse. Within days he had open sores on his bottom and was bleeding. We cut out wipes, used only warm washcloths and I tried every named brand diaper cream on the market; nothing worked. I visited every website I could find with home remedies and tried them; nothing worked. The pediatrician gave us Nystatin cream for what we thought was a yeast. It made it worse. They told me to mix Desitin, Nystatin and Maalox together, that didn't work either. I let him air his butt out everyday and once all night. Mild improvement, but not cured. 2 weeks into this, my poor son would scream with every diaper change. It broke my heart! Then a friend suggested Bag Balm. I had no idea what this was, but it is what farmers put on their cow's udders when they are chapped. You should be able to find it anywhere they have supplies for animals. Within 12 hours I noticed a vast improvement and within 24 hours his butt was only mildly pink. What a huge difference! Now he will be getting this on his butt even if he doesn't have a rash. If you are like me and feel like you have tried every remedy out there and nothing has worked, try Bag Balm!

Quick question...do you put the Bag Balm right over an open sore? My 16 month old son has a pretty bad diaper rash right now, so bad he doesn't want to walk or sit even. I would like to try the bag balm, but I don't want to cause an issue with the open sores? Any suggestions?

My newborn little girl has had issues with the same bleeding open sores and red rash on her bottom. I am going to try Lansinoh nipple ointment first since that is what I already have. Maybe it is about the same as Bag Balm just for humans. I will let you know how it works. Believe me though, if the Lansinoh doesn't work I will be sending my husband to the feed store for Bag Balm. Thanks for the tip!!

Just wanted to say this works!!! My son had a very sore bum since he was born. It was red and had open sores on it. I felt so bad, he screamed everytime I changes his bum. I stopped using wipes and used warm wash clothes, but it still hurt him. We had went to the doctor and got medicated cream and it still didn't work. Went to this website and saw this recommendation. I went to Walmart (in Canada) and bought Utterly smooth...udder cream, and within 24 hours it was much better and within 3 days it was completely gone. I just want to say THANK YOU...now my son has no more rash and he no longer screams yeah! THANK YOU THANK YOU

Bag Balm worked really great. Dr prescribed an ointment but in pharmacy they said it will take atleast 12 hours to prepare. But my daughter was keep crying so I tried within 8 hours she started smiling again.

I really should have been a doctor too if all I had to do was guess at prescribing medications to people. I called the Ped yesterday because my son is just getting over pneumonia and is on antibiotics. This is day 7 on the meds and he started getting the red butt. My baby has been through enough already. When I called the Ped she prescribes the Nystatin, I have told her before that --it don't work, because it takes too long. So luckily I started reading this blog and found the Bag Balm comments. I was worried because I was calling and searching the web for locations in the ATL area. There were no carriers, but I found some at the CVS in my town. Thanks a lot for the info, because as soon as I went to get the Bag Balm I gave my baby a sits bath and slapped the Balm on and he went to sleep and after about three more iterations of the boo-boo, his bumpy sore butt, became just a little red and he even let me change him while he was sleeping. That's how I know that Bag Balm works!!!

MY 6 MONTH OLD SON HAS TEETHING DIAHERRA AND I LAST NIGHT I TRIED BAG BALM IN A DESPERATE MEASURE AND WITHIN TWO HOURS THE REDDNESS WAS GOING AWAY AND WITH IN 8 HOURS THE RASH WAS ALMOST GONE COMPLETELY. THIS REALLY WORKS!!! WHEN I STARTED TO USE IT MY SON'S BOTTOM WAS ALMOST BLEEDING AND NOW 12 HOURS LATER IT WAS LIKE HE NEVER HAD A RASH.

my son was suffering from diaper rash for a couple of weeks and after using several different creams i read about the bag balm- it worked! the redness from the rash cleared up within a day of use. he had some blistering that did not go away, so i threw some corn starch on top of the bag balm at every changing (as suggested by a nurse) and his rash and blisters were completely gone after 2 days! the balm acted as a barrier and the corn starch soaked up the acid from his stools- best remedy i've ever tried and this is my fifth baby! also, i used a wet wash cloth instead of wipes til the rash was gone.
