					Diaper rash is usually caused by over excessive moisture and then of course sitting in urine. You want to create a barrier between the skin in the diaper. Using lanolin is another good option it's basically something that breastfeeding mothers would use on their nipples that are safe for babies but it also helps create a barrier to keep moisture away from the skin. When you are at home use the diaper as little as possible to allow the skin to breathe and heal and while the child is not wearing a diaper using coconut oil on the rash will help to soothe it and to go away.

					Either put vaseline or anti fungal creme and then you can sprinkle corn starch or burn flour and once it cools sprinkle it on their these are the two diaper rash remedies i swear by and dont have to use them often. They are both effective and work fast

				NEVER NEVER NEVER Use Vaseline especially on intimate areas where diaper rash would be or on the lips. I speak from experience as if this and talcum powder both will cause cancer my mom was one of those victims

					Aquaphor is great to use because it heals and also sensitive towards the skin. Also I would recommend making changing the brand of the diaper to sensitive brand. I know for my son he carries very sensitive skin and he couldn’t have the dyed diaper that carried the prints on them so I had to switch him to the pamper swaddlers.

					It happened to my daughter before. Tried different brands but it doesnt help. i did not use a diaper for her until the rashes gone away.. sometimes babies skins need to breath.

					I had saw an old wise remedy somewhere although I personally have never tried it myself but you take flour.. Yes like baking flour and brown it in a pan until its golden brown and add it to the diaper. Diaper rash is supposed to vanish
