    Stop using baby wipes and just use toilet paper and a spray bottle. Ask your pediatrician for nystatin ointment. Keep your little one hydrated!! Call the pediatrician.

    My baby girl used to get super red when when she had awful poops from teething. I would use a warm wash cloth to pat her dry then just talcum powder. Sometimes I would use just Vaseline every other diaper. Good luck!

    When my baby’s rash was this bad I took him to the pediatrician . Turned out to be a yeast infection . Doctor prescribed him a cream

    Aquaphor and Boudreaux butt paste mixed together, and lots of baths

    I use a small dusting of cornstarch baby powder and brush it in with my hand to keep the skin dry. The only few times my girls have ever had a rash were when husband or in laws watched them and thought it was excessive to use baby powder with each change. It doesnt take very much if you rub it in by hand and makes a difference in the comfort of your little one. This even worked when they had illness or stomach issues. Keeping their skin clean and dry is key to keeping away the rash.

    Aquaphor really helps both of my kids!! Also maybe try looking in different diaper brands that are more sensitive. I find that huggies little snugglers are great!

    Sudocrem or Bepanthan cream, it’s not in the US but you can get it on Amazon it works wonders!! You’ll not regret buying it.

    Old fashion home remedy my grandmother taught me!!! Corn starch on their butt. Works within one changed diaper. I’m 29 years old and use destin never worked as good as the corn starch.

    My poor guy has never had a diaper rash until today! (He’s 2) I used the Bordeaux’s buttt paste and let him walk around commando for about an hour, then gave him an Aveeno Oatmeal bath. So far it’s a lot better but not quite cleared up yet. If he wakes up with more redness I’m going to try the corn starch trick. I know that the oatmeal bath gave him some pain relief so I’d recommend that in the meantime :)

    Use a warm wash cloth and mild soap, and then let their bottom dry. It’s from the constant use of wipes! Also let him sit in a warm bath with coconut oil- and it will help soothe the rash!! Or if you don’t want to do the bath tub, I would just apply the coconut oil to his bottom!! My baby gets a tiny rash on occasion, and I put coconut oil on him, he doesn’t like the Destin and the smell is awful anyway!

    Corn starch baby powder is my go to! Johnson’s makes one that has the same medication in most paste. I find it works way fast because it keeps the area dry.

    Aquaphor works really great, just slather it on at every diaper change and change often!
