Rash Advice

An odd question for Darn Floor readers: what works good on diaper rash? Lid's got a nasty one, and we've decided that Desitin doesn't work at all. If you know something that does work, drop me a note or leave a comment. Lid's butt is depending on you.

UPDATE: Okay now, this post has generated more comments than any other. It appears that if I want comments, I need to talk about diaper rash. Something's not right.

Try Balmex to get the rash down. Then use a powder thereafter to keep the friction down and moisture away.

Good luck!

Okay, just came back from Walgreens with a tube of Balmex. Thanks, Dan. We'll give it a try. I'd never heard of Balmex before, but Walgreens had it--and about two dozen other varieties of diaper rash cremes, ointments, sprays, etc. (My favorite item was called "Boudreaux's Butt Paste." How can you go wrong with a name like that?) My sister in law says that if you can't find it at Walgreens, you probably don't need it.

Both of my children had the same problem. I have heard some babies are allergic to disposable diapers.(They were not very comon in my day 35 to 40 years ago) Try using cloth, and when you wash them turn the washer around to the wash cycle again and run it all the way through wash and rinse with no soap. Also, you can check into a diaper service. Compare it with what you pay for disposable diapers.

I second Say Uncle's suggestion of Boudreaux's Butt Paste. Its quirky name may hide the fact that it's a very effective product (I'll admit I'm biased, but I've got to support those south Louisiana brands, and Boudreaux's is a local favorite). My parents and brother and sister-in-law swear by it for treating my nephews' diaper rash, and as the web site says, it has many more uses (including for treatment of chapped lips-eww). Anyway, good luck.
