OK here is the secret to diaper rashes, my mommy used it with me and her mother & all the mothers before........... Parched flour... You take a cup or 2 of flour and burn it in a skillet, till it is a brown color, within just hours my sons rash is gone..... he gets rashes from taking antibiotics... The flour beats desitin and balmex and anything that you pay for in the store and i promise you this works...

Heavy-guage sandpaper and a blowtorch. Hey, you laugh but it works!

My 6 month old daughter doesn't get diaper rash... The only time she did have it was for about 2 days when we tried a generic brand of baby wipes. I think the most important thing in avoiding diaper rash is changing your baby often.. I think a lot of it stems from babies being left in disposable diapers that are made to hold about 10 lbs of excrement for LONG periods of time... Also, we use cloth diapers and I think air gets in a lot better... I have read that giving your baby naked time is a good way to get fresh air to the rash, though.

Austinsmom: watch out for those liquid antibiotics for long periods of time.. they rot out future teeth. (My SO's niece is toothless because antibiotics caused her to have her baby teeth pulled early.)

(they... thankfully my son had tubes put in his ears last month and hasn't had any trouble since. He never had a rash before they started giving them to him though.) I always thought it was from people not keeping their kids clean enough, but it also is caused by certain foods, medications and certain diapers and clothing. So it isn't always the parents fault when the kid has them.... I do know parents who don't change their child enough and yes they get awful rashes that are hard to get rid of...

I don't remember my daughter having diaper rash. Wouldn't I remember that?

When I watched my crack heads friends kids I would find them with diaper rash a lot. I would take the diaper off, clean him and put a little stuff on him and then let him roam for an hour or so.
They usually went away pretty quick.

Claire has had nappy rash yet although her bottom was a little reddish the other day. I used an over the counter drug, let her air out and I stopped using baby wipes (I used warm water and cotton balls instead). Anyway, it's cleared up.

That is not for a diaper rash.. that's for a yeast infection caused by a diaper rash... How bad is it?

It STILL WORKS better than the rest! even without the yeast!
If you're scared to use it though...then "Boudreaux's Butt Paste"
...miraculous, cures most overnight! >smiley:::smile

My child doesn't get diaper rash.... probably because we change her more often due to cloth diapers.

I do know that as a baby I had skin issues and my mother had to use cloth diapers.
