131 Home Remedies for Diaper Rash


Calamine Lotion, cheap diaper rash cream, yeast infection cream, and liquid anti-acid. Mix this all together and slather it on. We are cloth-diapering our son and his diaper rash was feroicious. This was like a miracle cure---dried it up really quickly.


over the counter diaper creams have never worked well for my son. Corn starch helped most of the time. the thing i found that works the best is Lansinoh Breastfeeding Ointment. it is expensive, but it works overnight and every time. Ihad some left over from when i was breastfeeding. it occured to me that it healed mevery quickly so it might work on him too. it sticks and stays put well. the easist way to apply it is to warm the bottle in your hand or in hot water to make it melt a little and easier to spread.
it works like a charm!


Mix 3 TBSP of cornstarch with the contents of 1 chamomile tea bag. The cornstarch helps keep the skin dry and the chamomile helps to reduce redness and inflammation. Use at every diaper change you should see results within a couple hours. It's the only remedy that has worked for my kids.


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!


For a diaper rash that is raw from antibiotics or diahrea and everything else fails try this. My son had heart surgery and then got bacterial meninigitis so on came the massive antibiotics. He had the worse diaper rash I had ever seen! NOTHING worked that the doctors suggested until a nurse at an ER we had to visit seen his rear and suggested using Neosporin (triple antibiotic ointment). Until this time we had tried litterally dozens of creams and powders over 3 weeks. The Neosporin cleared it up overnight!!!!

Mother of Two

COCONUT OIL! I know it sounds crazy, but this stuff works better than prescription diaper rash cream. My daughter had a GI bug that left her little butt red and raw with bleeding sores. It was TERRIBLE. We already use coconut oil for other things - like ear infections and skin burns - so I decided to just give it a whirl on her butt after nothing else was working. I even tried a few of the remedies on this site. You can get coconut oil at the health food store or at some grocery stores. Just wipe up the rear end with some water soaked paper towels or TP, then let it dry, blow on it or blow dry it, then just slather the coconut oil on there. It was the only thing that didn't make her squirm in pain while applying, too! It cleared up her BLEEDING BLISTERED diaper rash in just three or four diaper changes. AMAZING! And NATURAL!


use a cream called bag balm works miracles doent alow diaper rash to form


The best thing in the world is corn starch. It is natural and works. It keeps them dry witout the hrs perfumes. It only makes since.


When I had my daughter she was a premmy and was in the hospital for over a month. When she come out of the hospital she had a diaper rash and I could'nt get rid of it for nothing. When I went back to work and she went to daycare, I pulled out all the medicines to show 'Granny' what all I was putting on her pore little read, raw bottom. Granny told me by the time I get back from work the diaper rash would be gone. By the time I got off of work, I couldn't wait to see if it was gone. IT WAS. I asked her how she did it and she put Preperation H on it. It went away and never came back. Since then I've used it numerous times on infants that come my way w/ a diaper rash. Good luck!


The solid crisco oil. While in the Army in Panama, our son was born there, the Panaman doctor told me to always use that. It is very cheap, full of minerals, goes on very easy.

I used it on all my kids. Never even a slightly red bottom....
