131 Home Remedies for Diaper Rash

My 14 month old son had diarreha for more than a week, his poor bum was so sore, we tried everything. I didn't use wipes, I would rinse him bum off with warm water in the tub, then pour room temperature green tea over his bottom and little boy parts, tried soaking him with 'Domeboro' (a soak used for poison ivy/oak etc) and every diaper rash cream under the sun, but nothing seemed to help. Finally I tried giving him a bath with Aveeno oatmeal bath and baking soda then after his bum was dry I put a thin layer of hydrocortisone, a layer of desitin, and a thick layer of bag balm on top. By his next diaper change his bottom looked so much better!

Everytime our kids have gotten a nasty diaper rash (and I'm talking blistering bottom from diarrhea, soreness to the touch, real tears when trying to clean the area) we used this remedy:

Equal parts of;
Aquaphor
Maalox Advanced (Mint liquid-soothes and cools bottoms)

Works like a charm!

Good Luck - we know this can't be easy. Rashes are never fun =(

My daughter had the nastiest diaper rash, very red, very raw, I tried everything, cornstartch, baby powder, letting her run around naked, desatin, and even went to the doc for nystatin ointment, that didn't even work. So my mother told me about my horrid diaper rashes when I was younger, so I tried 100% petrolium jelly and that started clearing it up in just 2 diaper changes. Works wonders!

I have had 5 children and I always use Corona Ointment it is carried by some pharmacies usually privately owned ones or you can have any pharmacy special order it for you it is also a product for pets like the Bag Balm. It has always worked great and will take away a severe diaper rash within two to three uses.

I brown flour to the color of a paper sack in a pan, let it cool but still warm put it on with a clean diaper. you can use it cool or room temp after that but if it's real bad warm flour works best

I GOT THIS 'RECIPE' FROM A NURSE PRAC. IT HAS WORKED WONDERS FOR MY LITTLE BOY EVEN BETTER THAN PRESCRIPTION CREAMS. USE EQUAL PARTS LOTRIMIN ANTI-FUNGAL CREAM, ZINC OXIDE, NEOSPORIN, AND MYLANTA ANTACID. I USED CVS PHARMACY BRANDS TO CUT COST.
I STARTED OUT USING A TABLESPOON OF EACH AND JUST MIXED UNTIL WELL BLENDED. UNUSED PORTION CAN BE STORED IN PLASTIC CONTAINER FOR LATER USE. APPLY TO AFFECTED AREA. GOOD LUCK!

Get some corn starch warm it up in a frying pan, make sure it is not to hot and cake it on babys bottom, sounds really weird but it takes the worst diaper rash away.

Diaper Rash + Sulfur + Petroleum Jelly = CURED DIAPER RASH

diaper rash gets cured by sulfur. the powder. NOT SULFUR ACID. JUST PLAIN SULFUR. put petroleum jelly first and then pinch the powder and drop it on the petroleum jelly as much as needed 2 cover the petroleum jelly. MY 2 MONTH OLD BABY GIRL IS SOOO MUCH BETTER!

Nappy rash is the common problem for babies but they can be pervrnted if we apply coconut oil before putting a diaper or nappy.just apply the oil to the anal,between the curves where the skin come in contact with the urine and faeces.it really works i have done it with my son.

Paper towels or cotton balls to fix diaper rash due to diarrhea or other skin irritation (won't work for yeast or staph infection). Avoid using diaper wipes. Use paper towels or a cotton ball soaked in plain water to clean baby's bottom. Apply vaseline to protect skin and voila the rash is gone. (Don't use the other creams because they irritate the skin and make baby feel worse) My daughter had diarrhea for a week and I was able to avoid diaper rash using this method passed down from grandma. When the rash is cleared and diarrhea gone switch back to your regular wipes.
