My little one used to get yeast diaper rashes. I would open a capsule of probiotics and mix it in a jar with desitin or lard if you don't have desitin, and colloidal oatmeal if possible. Wash the bum with a little bit of baking soda mixed with warm water, then slather on the probiotic mixture. The bacteria clears up the yeast infection. This cleared up the most stubborn painful rash he ever had in a matter of hours. If the rash is shiny and doesn't respond to desitin alone, you need bacteria. Even plain cold yogurt will give the little one relief. I promise it works.

My baby had a bad nappy rash for weeks and we tried all kinds of nappy creams and remedies.we kept her nappy free and dry,etc.The only thing that worked for her was to wash her bottom every day with a cotton wool dipped in lukewarm chamomile tea (I put usually every morning 3-4 preferably organic tea bags in a cup of freshly boiled water),then dry properly with another cotton wool.After I apply a thin layer of nappy cream. Not only we got rid of a bad nappy rash ,even when she was teething her bottom was in a perfect condition.

My baby has had a severe diaper rash for the past 4 days now. I've tried every over the counter creme from desitin, a&d, butt paste, etc. Even prescriptions like dermocrem and nystatin didn't work. After being really desperate to find a remedy, I tried % 100 organic extra virgin coconut oil and plain corn startch. I will NEVER use anything else again. When I say this worked wonders, it really did. His rash was healed % 50 within 3 diaper changes (over night). Coconut oil has natural anti-fungal and anti-bacterial properties all in one. Way better than putting 3 different cremes with no luck. Plus it smells good and makes my babies skin feel so soft. The corn startch helps keep the oil on babies skin and keeps him dry even after he tinkles. I wish I could tell every mom in the world about this. It's amazing!

Try Egg white applied on clean dry bottom with nappy rash , then putt the nappy on. And redo at each nappy change. Ensuring you wash bottom thoroughly n dry. Each nappy change. Before application too! Cleared up my daughters who got it bad because of her fruit intake and the acid they produce

For moderate diaper rash with redness, bumps and few blisters there may be a yeast component to complicate things. I used virgin coconut oil and then a layer of zinc oxide. I prefer Boudreaux Butt Paste. Also instead of wiping I would rinse his bottom of in the sink instead as to not irritate broken skin.his symptoms improved by about 50 percent the following day.

I was up at 12:39 am with a screaming baby due to inflammed diaper rashed and the destiny was not relieving her pain. So I started goggling and the site. I made a paste mixture of Nystatin, Desitin, and Hydrocortisone..and I brown some flour n let it cool. I put the paste on my baby girl and then cotton swab the browned flour on her bottom and she went to sleep. Woke up at 5:30 am and my baby redness was gone and it also look like her rash was already clearing up. So for the home remedy post for this mixture and flour really help my child and beats being in emergency and doctor visit any day!! Thanks

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.)

When my daughter gets a diaper rash I use organic extra virgin coconut oil. Just apply it like you would desitin. It work fast and it is said to reduce the discomfort of your baby. Hope this helps!
