My grandmother always told me to use cornstarch. It works really well but if it doesn't get better soon I would be taking the baby in to a doctor

Just sprinkle it in the diaper with every change. Another thing that helps is air, and frequent changes. Gotta keep the little one really dry.

I have used Bag Balm for diaper rash. It really helped when my babies had a bad rash and is good for preventing it too.

let the baby go without a diaper for a few minutes before applying the lotion and re-diapering it always does the trick!

I have found that desonide cream works really well for diaper rash.

Hi! I'm sorry for your little one, I know how frustrating diaper rash can be. One thing that really helped my daughter was letting her soak in the bathtub. She would even ask to take a bath when she was having rash problems. A good soak in the tub will help. Some of the creams I've used and had good results with were Aveeno and Johnsons. I hope it clears up soon! Best to you! :-)

Hi. I think it will take 1 week before you see any improvement on the diaper rash, just remember to wipe the area clean before applying the cream.

To get rid of diaper rash, gently wash the bottom with plain water and then blow dry the bottom with a hair dryer set on LOW every single time the diaper is changed. This usually clears it in a day or two - even the really bad rash that bleeds.This ALWAYS worked for my 10 cousin kids Just make SURE that you don't get too close with the hair dryer! Keep it on LOW and constantly moving and just long enough to dry the skin, which should only take about 30 seconds.or u can put a tablespoon of white vinegar into about 2 cups of warm water. Dip a rag into the water, squeeze it out, and dab it onto the diaper area do this after each diaper change. The only warning is if the diaper rash is bleeding or there is sores DO NOT use it will burn the child.
