Well, something I did was the Aveeno Oatmeal packets. Wash the bottom
then, fill the tub with a little warm water and sprinke the Aveeno and have him/her play then rinse. Also, if you go to Publix or Kroger there is another
cream called "Flanders" ....if memory serves me correctly. I just know you
have to ask the Pharmacist for it. Don't know why, but it works! It's this
gray gritty cream. Try it! Good luck!

If it's been going on for a while, I'd take him to the Dr. When my daughter was that age she had that, ended up being a bacterial thing and needed a script for a cream. Cleared up within 24 hrs, even though she'd had it for over a week.

How long has he had it? I only ask because diaper rash can turn into a Yest infection real quick. They look the same but neither desitin or butt past, which I love, will work on it. If it has been more than a week you may want to call the Pediatrician, mine has given me a prescription and told me some over the counter meds to use.

I LOVE the Burt's Bees "Baby Bee" diaper ointment.
GOOD stuff and worth the price.
Next, make sure his diaper rash is not nor turns into, a yeast infection rash. THAT... will not go away with usual diaper creams. You then have to apply a yeast cream (the kind women use from the drugstore), and one that has "Clotrimazole" in it.
Also, rinse off his tush... with warm water after any poop. And dry completely BEFORE you put on any diaper cream.
all the best,

Add 1 tablespoon of Moisturil Oil to warm water and let your son sit or lay in the warm water. Then apply Melagel Topical Ointment to his bottom. At each diaper change apply Melagel and Moisturil. These products are made from natural ingredients. I use these and other products every day.

A&D is all I ever use. It has vitamins A and D in it, hence the name, and with regular use keeps diaper rash away and also doesn't sting when applied to red and irritated areas.

Hydrocortizone 1% is the best! Even works on open wound areas, then once more controlled, on to Desitin.
I would recommend, for first day or two, don't wipe area -- if you can, rinse off and then patt dry with moist then dry paper towels (Viva are bomb! treat area like a newborn = no chemical residue and no added "rub" to area) or regular towels or washcloths. Then Hydrocortizone, then wipes without fragrance or moist Vivas, then regular treatment with Desitin.
Will be gone in 3-5 days tops following the above:)
