Best diaper rash cream?

My daughter is 6 months. She got diaper rash from using honest diaper. Any suggestion for the best cream?

    Butt paste is a lifesaver !

    We’ve been using Desitin since my baby was born. It comes in 2 types. We have both. So far, it works well for my baby though we never had any diaper rash concerns.

    We have used Aquaphor. It’s cleared up any and every skin irritation that our kids have had. My daughter has really sensitive skin and she has had no issues with this stuff. She was in the Target brand diapers and they changed up the materials in their manufacturing about 2 years ago and it gave her a terrible rash. This stuff cleared it up fast! It’s also good for that every “diaper change” use to keep their bums dry.

    I think Vaseline is better than any diaper rash cream, also baby powder ☺️

    Weleda is amazing! I was using buttpaste before and it didn’t seem to do the job. The weleda has the diaper rash completely gone in 24 hours!

    To clear up a bad or stubborn rash, I use Dr. Smith’s. Best stuff ever. I use babyganics in my cloth diapers if rash isn’t that bad. Coconut oil (in my baby wipes solution) helps to act as a barrier like Vaseline and prevents most rashes for us.

    If it’s not terrible I use aquaphor and every night before bed I put a lot on to give her a good barrier. But when it’s a really bad rash, max strength butt paste is the only thing that fixes it for us!

    Baby powder - not for treating a rash but once the rash is cleared to avoid another. (Just part of out so it’s not clumpy) Butt paste or Burt bees ointment for when there is a rash.

    I've changed hundreds.. ok maybe thousands of diapers in the 21 years of caring for young children and babies. We rarely see diaper rashes; however some rashes due to Rx reactions in urine, excessive loose BMs and reaction to diaper material can occur. I find butt paste to be good as a barrier for severe rashes during nap time when diaper changing isn't as quick. Since paste is thick and not easily removed when diapers are soiled at nap/overnight sleep it may be a good option. During wake times a lighter cream that is easier to remove and reapply at each diapering works well. I also find while I can't let children go "bare bum", parents can have some bare bum time to allow area to breath a little. If rash does not clear up it may be a fungal rash, using lotrimin may then be best. 🐴

    We use Burt’s bees multipurpose ointment. While not a true diaper rash cream we have found it to clear up any we have had and I like that it is not so thick and sticky.

    Butt Paste. It is amazing. Also, don’t use baby powder. It is bad for babies’ lungs.

    My favorite is Earth Mama Diaper Balm! Spreads easily, isn’t sticky, and smells nice.
