Diaper rash 😞

Hello mommas! my 3 month old baby girl has a really bad diaper rash, looks like a chemical burn maybe from diapers. Is there any recommendations on what to use? I have tied desitin, Burt’s bees diaper cream, A+D diaper rash cream, and also have tried Maizena (corn starch). if you have any other suggestions please help! Thank you!

    I second not using wipes.. it helped my son.. but also baby powder.. help dry things up a bit. And air dry after diaper change.

    My son had it bad but I used the boudreaux and then put a layer of petroleum jelly so the diaper wouldn’t absorb it. He also had a protein allergy so once I fixed that the diaper rash cleared up

    I have always used a blend of aquafore and A and D ointment on all of my kiddos except my son whom is now 12 did not respond to any of the above and forget using the "so called" best diapers on him either! The only kind of diaper rash treatment for him that I could find was called Medicated Triple Paste. Hope this helps! Good luck

    Put some flour in a pan an let it brown. Put it in the fridge to cool down and then apply it on her (no diaper for about 20 minutes) or you can do it overnight. Sounds crazy but totally worked for my son when he used to get them from being at daycare.

    We also use the clear aquaphor Texture is better and doesn’t stick to the skin like desitin

    Sometimes it's not even what product you use, it's the diaper. Babies can be allergic to a particular diaper and it can look like a really bad diaper rash. I'm just thinking that's probably it because of all the products you've tried and they all failed. Those are some of the best to try too.

    Ok so I highly recommend washing the bottom rather than using the wipes when LO goes poop. I use a natural Shea butter and have never seen anything work as well as that, seriously!! There’s no brand name. I just got it at a natural store so try one as similar as possible. I have even used it on my baby’s eczema spot and it helps a lot. This product is amazing.

    Dr. Smith's diaper ointment was a godsend when my baby had the same horrible rash. Was recommended by our pediatrician. its even a preventative. So she wears it every diaper change. It was the only thing that worked for her, after trying all the others. When cleaning her I would use a warm towel and drip rinse her really good then let it air dry. Try not to secure her pamper too tight either. Not wearing a pamper is better too. Good luck to you and your LO! It can be so painful to watch...

    Try some of the women’s yeast infection medicine. Babies get that too. After she is healed use Vaseline at every diaper change - she will NEVER get another rash.

    I use butt paste but if it gets really bad and sore I’ll use Vaseline for a couple of days. My babies could not use wipes without getting a rash, so I just threw them under the sink (baths now) and pat them dry with a towel. Maybe it’s the wipes?

    I let my little one run around without a diaper for awhile, then put some cream on her. Then change the diaper as soon as it gets wet until it goes away

    I bought Triple Paste and cloth diapers, both helped a ton!

    It's very good for diaper rash, you going to find it at Walmart or Walgreens

    I’ve always used aquaphor and never had a problem with my two babies. Air drying helps too. When they weren’t as mobile and we were home, I would wash their butts with water after they pooped. What did the pediatrician say? Good luck.
