I use desitin for my LO...but it doesn't seem to work to good on him, unlike his cousins... :?
On my oldest niece we use bagbalm (lol yeah...I know it's for cows, but that stuff is amazing! I used it on my stomach while pregnant too) and her rash will be gone in a couple hours. And it's not that expensive...

Quoting mama1821:" then i would for sure follow dr's advice. hope it gets better soon."


I do follow, just wondering which butt paste is preferred for everyone else. I try not to use anything at all. I put Vaseline in the crease of his legs occasionally, but otherwise I let him air dry after cleaning him up and just leave him be. We have sensitive skin, and I'm allergic to coconut so coconut oil wouldn't be an option either, since it would make me break out lol! I may start trying some of these powders yall are talking about on myself since I have a small "flab" Over my csection scar

Quoting Allissa Specht:" His is actually a yeast infection. He has Nystatin butt cream, but my pediatrician suggested putting buttpaste over the Nystatin to help keep it in place."


Def no corn starch then. The yeast feed on it and will make it worse.

Vaseline and only Vaseline unless that hasn't worked then I will resort to an actual cream ...

Quoting O ♥ G:" I use the Aveeno Diaper Rash cream. It's amazing bc it has tons of zinc oxide. I had tried Desitin, Boudreauxs, and a few other kinda and that one was best"


Aveeno works great but if my LO has a bad rash,I use Zincofax extra strength. It had something like 40% zinc in it and the rash is gone in 2 days! I get it at Wal mart and I think Target sells it too
