Diaper rash


I’ve never dealt with diaper rash before but my 1.5 year old has developed a bad one. I’m trying to figure out if it’s something in his diet or teething but in the meantime I would love some suggestions to heal it. Aquaphor and Buttpaste are not working! Anything non-toxic proven to heal diaper rash?? Thanks all!

    Have you tried giving him a bath and leaving the diaper off? When my daughter gets real bad ones that what I do. And it gets better after being bare for a few hours, and a warm bath

    I like the diaper rash cream called “triple paste”. It’s more expensive than the others... but it has worked the best for me. My daycare lady recommended using corn starch to keep their bottoms dry. She said you can use it everyday with/without a rash. I usually sprinkle some in after bath time/before bed. I have found that raisins/crasins give my baby diaper rash. So we try to avoid those. Good luck!!!

    I give my little one diaper free time if her butt starts to get red, it helps a lot! I really like the ABC diaper cream. But getting air is really good too!

    I use a combination of diluted apple cider vinegar and aquaphor. After a bath, I put the ACV (3 parts water to 1 part natural, unfiltered ACV) and then aquaphor on top. ACV is a natural anti-bacterial,anti-fungal so it helps clear up everything. Literally works in 1-2 days.

    Desitin (in the purple container) and Mylanta. Make a paste and smear it on. Stop using wipes and just use a warm wet cloth in between diaper changes.

    So I actually uses coconut oil. So when my little man poops it won’t sick on the bad rashes he gets. And also uses the destin purple one. But if I feel like that’s just not working I use the oil. I also noticed that I switch size diapers. He’s 22lbs and I had him in size 3 I went to 4 notice a little different in the rashes

    I use extra strength Desitin(purple) when my baby has a rash. No wipes because they irritate the rash. The hospital gave me a no rinse foam soap and soft gauze after we left NICU which is easier to remove the ointment but just a warm, wet rag could work as well

    Hypochlorous acid spray works great for us. Kills microbes and is naturally anti inflammatory. Works well for eczema and sunburn too.
