I used to use Desitin or A&D ointment. I've found a really good one lately, and I've been using it. It's called Burt's Bees Baby Bee diaper ointment. My youngest had a rather horrible diaper rash and the Destitin or A&D wasn't working. I was alternating them for each diaper change. My mom had given me the Burt's Bees and it killed her diaper rash quickly. It stays on really well, so it didn't let much moisture acutally touch her. I'm really impressed by it. How about you? Which brand do you use?

Oh god, Burt's Bees is amazing! Burt's Bees ANYTHING is just outstanding. The chapstick, and all skin care. And hello Tatsuya. I believe I know you, possibly, maybe-- from KOL? That's all the information I'll include in that.. in case you're not the same person.. cause then it might seem creepy.

Burt's Bees products are great, tho I've never tried their diaper rash ointment. Always used Desitin diaper rash cream on the little butts that I used to diaper way back in the day, lol.

I love Burt's Bee products! I can't say I ever used them for diaper rash, my kids are adults and about the only thing available was desitin, but it did the job.

Boudreaux's Butt Paste is really good, but the best one I've found is something called Triple Paste Ointment. The pediatrician gave us a sample a couple of years ago and we fell in love with it. It has more zinc oxide than other ointments, and creates a really good moisture barrier.

I use Triple Paste. I think it works really, really well. It stays on for a long time too.

The best type of diaper rash cream that anyone can use on a baby or anyone is the old peetroleum vaseline it has worked for years and that is why it still exists today over a 100 years later. I have tried other ones and the vaseoline cannot be beaten.

I can honestly say that I have never put vaseline on either of my children. In fact, I don't even have any. The only think I used vaseline for was an April Fools Day joke. I put it on the door handle of the bathroom. Ha ha, man I was around 7 when I did that. Thanks for responding.

I've never used petroleum jelly for diaper rash. However, I do use it for dry skin. People spend a lot of money on creams and lotions when this natural substance works wonders.

I found a diaper rash cream when my daughter was a baby that I have used every since and I love it! It's called Calmoseptine. You can only purchase this at a pharmacy they usually keep it behind the counter as its really expensive. I pay $7.00 for it and its about the size of a normal tube of Desitin. It's super thick and stays on extra long so there is no need to use a lot of it, one tube with usually last me about 3 months or longer.

I have used everything on the market I think, and I'm not impressed with many. My fav is Aquaphor, but I think plain old vaseline works the best.

Like I said before, I haven't tried vaseline. I may try Aquaphor, because I've heard good things about it. Thanks for responding.

When my daughter's had very bad rashes my doctor told us to mix Desitin, oatmeal and Mylanta. It sounds like a very weird combination, but indeed it cleared up in almost hours. The rashes always were extremely bad too, almost to the point that I had to bring them to the Emergency room.

That's how bad my daughter's rash was when I started putting on the Burt's Bees. Thanks for responding.

I use A&D Original with every diaper change. When she's going to bed or if she has a diaper rash I use Destin or something called Butt Paste. I love the Butt Paste because it smells really good (kind of like chocolate), it stays on, and it really helps prevent/heal diaper rashes!

Thanks for your response. I haven't tried that brand just yet, the name kind of throws me off. I'll try it sooner or later though.

I love using Curash Diaper Rash Cream. It's from Australia. I've tried a lot and this has been the best one. My baby never had rashes ever again after using this product. Just use it every nappy change. It's easy to apply and really makes your baby's bottom dry but still moisturized. :)

I like the balmex and bordeaux's butt paste. The butt paste works pretty good but I hate the color and smell of it. The balmex works really good. I have some A&D but never tried it yet and I had no idea burts bee's made diaper cream! That's good to know as I like burt's other products.

When my son was in diapers, he often had diaper rash from having a high yeast count in his system. There was a pharmacy in Liberty, Mo that made a diaper rash cream from a recipe from a town pediatrician. It worked wonders on his diaper rash, it was called Vanbibbers buttocks cream. I don't know if they even still make it, but it was a great product. I have never seen the Burts Bees cream, but I have used their lotions and hand creams and really liked them. tdbrower1969

I'm lucky that my baby's skin is not really sensitive so he rarely gets diaper rash but when he does, I cleanse his skin with Cetaphil cleanser and apply Drapolene or Desitin cream.

I tried alot of different brands and I think that Balmex worked the best for my babies and then whenever I ran out of Balmex I would use plain ol' Vaseline and it did the same trick. Both of them seemed to stay on really good and they didn't have as much redness and the rash would usually go away within a few hours of the next diaper change so I stuck with those two and haven't really tried anything else.

I use Crema Lassar. I don´t know if that is available outside of Central America, but it works pretty well. We go through a LOT of it! Most things like Destitin and Burt´s Bees just isn´t available down here.
