Diaper Rash

Country_of_Remedy: USA
Ingredients: fresh air and corn starch
Instructions: My aunt gave me this remedy, and I never had a rash with any of my four children. Try to dry the baby before popping another diaper on them. Also if possible let them go about ten minutes a day with out a diaper. I was a stay at home mother so I know people on the go can\'t always do this, so just make sure to dry them off as much as possible and rub corn starch on them at the first sign of a rash. Most of all enjoy your babies:)

Ingredients: Epsom Salt
Sea Salt

Both are found in the grocery Store. Sea Salt will be found by the spices in the store, Epsom Salt by the foot care section. Instructions: My son has had a hard time with diaper rash, everytime he got rid of one, he got another. I had an infection and they had told me to use Sea Salt on it 2-3 times daily (diluted in water of course). It healed up pretty quickly. At bath time, fill up the tub as normal, pour in 1 cup Sea Salt and 1 cup Epsom Salt. Mix with your hand (this also helps test water for the temp. so baby doesn\'t burn). Salts will make the water a bit misty and then will fade out clear. Place baby in the tub and bathe as normal. You can do this once a day and within a few days, the rash goes away. The Epsom Salt also helps relax baby and helps them go to sleep easier. It_is_ok_to_include_my_email: email: melodyrose20@hotmail.com

Flanders Ointment ( you have to ask the pharmacist for this. It is
located behind the counter at your local CVS, Rite Aid, Walgreens, etc...)

INSTRUCTIONS: The best remedy that I have found it to run baby a warm bath and put backing soda in the water. Let the baking soda dissolve and
let baby soak it the water for about 15 minutes. When you get baby out of the bath let him go without a diaper for about 10-15 minutes to allow the area to dry. Then apply Flanders Ointment and put babies diaper on. I usually do this at night right before my son went to bed and when he wakes up the diaper rash is gone.

ingredients: corn starch, Torquise Bottle of milanta
Directions: apply milanta on to rash then pour corn starch on top. It's that easy and one of the good things about it is that it's not hard to come off, just use water. This remedy was told to us by a country doctor about 30+ years ago. IT WORKS!!

INSTRUCTIONS: I was on vacation in Florida and we stayed with friends who had well water. My neice got really bad diarrhea from the well water in her formula she had the worst diaper rash I've ever seen. She couldn't even walk without crying. Take about 3 or 4 eggs and just crack them open get rid of the yolk and pour the egg whites over the clean & dry rash and put on a clean diaper. The rash should look better by the time you change them again.

Ingredients: Air
Instructions: Before I had my daughter, I had heard about soaking a baby with diaper rash. After my daughter was born and had many rashes, I found that soaking did nothing. The creams helped while the diaper was on, but the best thing to cure the rash is fresh air. Let them be without a diaper from 15min-30 min a few times a day and it works like a charm.

Ingredients: 100% lanolin ointment
Instructions: generously rub the ointment over affected area. the lanolin forms a waxy coating over the areaallowing it to heal and not become re-irritated with every diaper
change. If you need to remove the ointment I recommend using warm water and baby shampoo. Use the
ointment once daily, and your baby will never have diaper rash again. Also works great for chapped hands, cheeks and lips during the winter.

3.soak babies bottom for at least 10 minutes a day.
These worked very well for my kids. My youngest son had really bad infections and was on alot of medication. Nothing was working and even if it did work it would come right back. I did this even when he didn't have an infection. It's cheaper than zinc cream, or topical creams and works 100% better. I will never buy wet wipes, baby wipes or creams again!

Ingredients: Vegetable Oil
Instructions: Wash the babies bottom with warm water and dry it very good. Take Vegetable Oil and pour it in your hand. Then apply it to the the diaper rash. This really works. My peditrician told me to try it and I did not believe it worked. I tried it and with in the next two diaper changes, the rash was cleared up.

Use Cod Liver oil capsules. it takes away rash over night with just a fewcapsules. you can buy these OTC in any vitiman section in the store. Iswear by them. just cut open the tip and pour onto rash. Use a few forsmall rash, more if rash is worse. Ive used many creams and other homeremedies and nothing works like these do. Try it, you'll never go back todiaper creams again.One other thing most mom know but thought it was worth mentioning, yeastinfection cream gets rid of them also, but still not as quickly as codliver oil.

1/2 C. baby lotion
1/2 box cornstarch
2-3 spoonfuls Bag Balm

Instructions: Mix ingredients together, put in tub with airtight lid, apply librally to babies bottomafter every diaper change and after bath. Also a good remedy for chapped hands apply to hands put on hospital gloves, put socks over gloves let sit on hands overnight works best.Bag Balm can be found in most grocery stores but if you can't find it there go to a animalfeed store, they will definitly have it, for anyone who doesn't know
it's what is put on a milk cow's teats when they are cracked and sore from milking. This is perfectly harmlessfor babies, I used this remedy faithfully on my son and daughter when I learned they werealergic to desitin and just got worse rashes from application of that.
Sprinkle corn starch on the affected area and then diaper. This is the greatest and works. I have used this on my kids and my grandkids.

Ingredients: Desitin Creamy
Pure Corn Starch Baby Powder
Instructions: You can use any kind of diaper rash ointment, I prefer desitin or balmex.You can also use either pure corn starch baby powder, my pick, or regular kitchen corn starch, I just like the consistency of the baby powder.Mix your ointment and corn starch until you have made a thick paste, (ittakes quite a bit of corn starch) and spread on baby's bottom. This is FABULOUS!!!!
I discovered this with my 1st child and have since used it with 3 more. I mix up a whole tube of ointment at a time and keep in a small plastic bowl in the diaper bag at all times!!!!! My oldest son would get diaper rashes so terrible that his little bottom would bleed, this remedy would have it almost totally cured within 12 hours!!!!! Good Luck!!!!!

I have a couple great remedies for Diaper rash.
1) Breast milk, my freind has used this with both of her kids it works wonders. Just dab it on the affected area after each diaper change.
2) Cornstarch, sprinkle on affected area  or use as a preventive measure and use with each diaper change.
3) Browned flour works wonders also
4) Do not use wipes instead use a wash cloth with baby shampoo its much gentler. Let babies bottom air dry for a few minutes. If air drying is not possible use hair dryer on a COOL setting for a minute.
