Change it out everytime you change the diaper. You can make a bunch and set it in a container on counter not the fridge
Browned flour. Put some flour in a frying pan with nothing else and stir till brown. Old country home remedies.
There are no dots, or pimples, it's just red and chapped.
Agree with Alissa, it is probably yeast infection. I went to A&E they gave me clotrimazol 1%. It cleared up in 3 days. You can get this in pharmacy as well.
A&D a ointment is the best to use 24/7 great at protection and healing. Deleting hurt my baby’s bum more so this worked wonders
I have the purple one.
My LG had bad nappy rash when she was very small. Lots of nappy free time helped. I used to put a puppy pad down on the changing mat and let her get some air to the area and allow it to fully dry before applying more barrier cream and ointment. Try doing this as much as possible and it’ll really speed up the healing process
I'm a mama and have worked with infants for many, many years: best basic products imo are aquaphor for light redness or consistent application, Desitin for rash. If it doesn't get better within a couple days at the most: doctor. It's very possible it's a yeast infection/thrush (yes, boys too) and a mild OTC like clotrimazole would clear it right up. But any time a rash isn't getting better and is painful, especially if it isn't associated with ongoing diarrhea, ask that doc.
@tiasia I have heard this and I have totally considered it. Thank you!
We tried a couple things and had this issue until my mother suggested Vaseline. It has worked so well, I don't get anything else. You can see the instant relief on my son's face when I apply it when the rash is irritated.
Cornstarch, absorbs the moisture to prevent further rashes
If you breast feed if you put some breast milk on it it helps
Pampers gave my baby a rash. I used aquaphor with every diaper change & that helped heal it but for discomfort we used earth mama organic diaper balm for when her bum was dry & honest diaper rash cream for when her bum was moist. We changed to Honest diapers & I love that brand

I went to our pediatrician and they prescribed a cream and it was GONE in a DAY! It worked wonders for him! I also use aquaphor after every diaper change just to help from irritation
@Shelby i use dyper !! They are pricey but they dont have any scent and the pulp is made from bamboo!! Hello bello and millie moon are also non fragrance!!
If you've tried multiple creams and it's not clearing up, I'd go to the pediatrician before trying any other creams (antifungal). Improperly treating could make it worse. In the meantime, use a rag and just water to clean, give baby some time without a diaper to let his skin breathe, and if you want to put cream on, use a THIN spread of zinc-based cream (Desitin, Aquaphor with Zinc, Boudreaux's, etc...). You don't need to coat the cream on. It's best if you don't!
I definitely recommend aquaphor. My baby had a rash and it disappeared within a few days of using aquaphor, nothing else worked. It was the only thing that worked for my nieces as well.
It's probably a yeast infection! Use something like Lotrimin AF, a clotrimazole cream, I used a 1% I think? Use it twice a day, that cream only. The other diaper changes use Aquaphor. It should only take a few days for it to go away.
vaseline, childs farm, even nipple cream!
Try a anti fungal cream. May be yeast. Baking soda wash
I use bourdeuax butt paste now and it works well, we also switched to cloth diapering because with any disposables we tried he would still get bad rashes like bright red and raw. Now he only gets very minor irritation like it might just get a little red like blush color and then goes away after like 2 cream uses. He also has very sensitive skin on his whole body it’s borderline exzema our dr is having us see a dermatologist on Tuesday for it
My baby currently has a really bad one. First one in her life & i bought the Boudreaux’s butt paste & she hasn’t been miserable since. 🥰
He was just in the hospital for the first time since birth due to salmonella poisoning and we made sure we left with a full jar of the magic booty cream as well as the partially used one. He doesn’t really get diaper rashes though once we switched diapers (I use Aldi or if I can’t get AlDi, I use Huggies). He had a rash this time because of severe diarrhea with the salmonella.
The only other thing we tried that helped was buying liquid mylanta and putting it on with a cotton ball after diaper changes and then using a blow dryer on the cool blast setting to dry it before applying barrier cream and closing the clean diaper up. The mylanta neutralized the acid and was what the doctor who treated him when his rash became bloody recommended. I had gone around for hours trying to find Maalox and couldn’t find any. It was the ingredient in the recipe we were given to get the closest to the magic diaper cream from the hospital.
@Thalia he got so badly red from pampers. We stopped immediately I'm going to try different diapers. Ahhh, I just don't no which ones.
Okay, so we are using Huggies and I started to think it was the diapers.. Huggies worked for us at first we tried other diapers which we received at our baby shower when we ran out, and it seemed to make his bum red so we just stuck with Huggies.. but this week I e been questioning.. and. It sure with what bran to even try next. I will try a different diaper.
I would check with his doctor. My boys had a rash and when cream wouldn’t work we found it was actual rash from a spread of yeast

Have you changed diapers? Ours was getting a horrible rash and what I believe was a chemical burn from pampers! The only cream that helped was stuff we could only get at the hospital and once we ran out the rash came back. I realized what the issue was when it went away and came back when I used sample diapers before going back to pampers. I know a lot of other people have experienced the same thing.
If you can’t find anything to get it to go away I’d call his doctor and ask. What kind of diapers are you using? My little one couldn’t use Huggies
Sudocrem worked like a charm for our baby the first time she got diaper rash. It was a bad rash too that looked like a burn! Took care of it in 3 days.
