How to treat diaper rash:

To treat diaper rash it is imperative to change your child's diaper as often as possible to keep moisture off of their irritated skin. After removing the dirty diaper, wipe them well with a wet cloth. It can help to avoid wet wipes when their skin is raw, as the soap can burn and irritate their skin. After cleaning them well, use a blow dryer set on COOL to thouroughly dry the skin. After drying, liberally apply a diaper cream such as Desitin, Triple Paste, or Boudreaux's Butt Paste to the affected area before putting on the clean diaper. If the rash is persistent, worsening, or not responding to treatment, consult your health care provider.
