    Stop using wipes when he just has a pee diaper. Only use them when he poops. (This was recommended my my pediatrician). Literally cleared up immediately. I’ve told all my friends with babies this trick and it worked for them immediately as well. PLEASE TRY you won’t regret it.

    Have you tried switching brands? Some diapers may contribute...

    Try naked time so little one can air dry it helps a lot! Also use patrolium jelly it helps heal the owies faster. My son gets diaper rashes horribly if his poop is too acidic and sits on the skin for even 5 minutes. So try to catch poopy diapers quickly.

    After every diaper change, we put a little Vaseline on our son and it keeps his tushy protected from everything. Haven’t had a diaper rash yet!

    Don't use wipes! My son has these problems and it helps a lot. Clean her just with soap and water.

    Let's not forget about when Huggies was found to have fiberglass in several wipes, those parents never suspected the wipes being the problem.

    Aquaphor baby for sure it clears it very quickly and I feel like it’s soothing since baby girl doesn’t complain about it much after I put the ointment

    I’ve had success with A&D ointment to prevent diaper rash. I bought a big container and slather it on at bedtime and after every poopy diaper. My son is 13 months now, and he’s never had another diaper rash since I started consistently doing this!

    My little girl had the same thing and we finally narrowed it down to a sugar intolerance. High fructose corn syrup and dextrose (which is in electrolyte solutions like Pedialyte). I had been using free and clear diapers, water wipes, aquafor, and prescription Nystatin from her pediatrician but her rashes would still come through. One was yeasty at times and one was bright red and would burn when bad. A lot of times both were present. Was also changing 4 times a night and feeling like a complete failure because even with all of that, I couldn't get it to go away. The minute I stopped mixing pedialyte in her water and started monitoring her sugar (including fruit) the rash cleared up and her stools have become more firm. Might not be the same situation for you but, if you haven't looked into it with your pediatrician yet, I definitely recommend it, just in case. I had no idea it was even a thing, and was spending a fortune addressing what I now know to be the symptoms, rather than the actual problem. Good luck!

    idk if anybody else does this but, everytime I change my son, I use less wipes then go wash his butt n pat dry, let he go wo diaper a few mins if i have time then put his diaper on. if no time ill just wash n dry his butt completely b4 putting diaper on. if we been out and cant wash, ill just use wipes but still go wash him up as soon we get home and again let he go diaper free for a few minutes.

    My son skin is super sensitive so we always have to pay close attention to change him immediately after he poo poo or else. happened once he got a bad rash after I left him with his dad where his skins got so red it burns and his skin came off. I literally cried when I saw it and he screamed whenever I tried to wash and clean it up 😭

    For my daughter it was allergies to eggs and strawberries that we were unaware of. She’s 3 now and long out of diapers and we still have issues with rashes on the bottom if she doesn’t avoid those foods.

    Both my girls got them easily. We had to try so many diaper brands to find the one that lessened the diaper rash. We ended on pampers swaddlers. You may just need to switch brands. My dr also suggested using antifungal cream as sometimes a persistent diaper rash can just be a yeast infection.

    And when it’s a bad bad rash, try just letting her sit in a Luke warm bath of clean water, no soaps, and breastmilk. (If you’re not a breastfeeder there are moms that donate/sell breastmilk

    We always used corn starch instead of powder or creams. It’s awful, and uncomfortable...but I hope you’re able to find something that works soon.
