HELP! Diaper Rash is the pits, big time 😥 My poor red bottom, 8 month old little girl! I've tried everything I can think of and then some. Any mommy's out there know something I don't? I hate seeing her in pain.

Try letting her bottom get some air by going diaper less. Also a warm hair dryer to the bottom helps

Vitamin e oil works for us. Or Vaseline. But I use vitamin e in extreme cases! Good luck!!!

Maybe its a yeast infection? My daughter was prone to them. At times I would think it was diaper rash but nothing seemed to work and turned out it was a yeast infection.

Try Triple Paste. My son had a terrible rash and this cleared it up in a day. You can find it at Target. Good luck!!

Sometimes when babies have diaper rashes that won't go away it turns out to be a yeast infection. They are common in both little girls and boys. Reach out to your pediatrician just in case. Hope your little one feels better soon.

Mix a dime size of hydrocortisone cream and an equal size of jock itch cream- apply liberally. I swear by this- and it is the exact formula as prescription strength. Works miracles!!!

Corona Ointment with a layer of petroleum jelly over the top. The Corona will heal the rash while the jelly keeps off moisture till it's healed. Works wonders!

I like the diaper cream that is in the grey tube! I know making your wipes might help too!

Coconut oil and also wash her with warm water every time you change her diaper. That really helps.

Possibly a yeast infection. Try monistat or jock itch cream. If not a yeast infection Lassar's Paste will take away any diaper rash!

Let her air out and if it's hot to the touch I held my baby in front of the AC or a fan and he loved it. I prefer butt paste and my doctor told me not to use powder. It's probably a yeast infection.

Leave the baby without diaper for a couple days, the baby wipes just make it worse. Make warm baths with DOMEBORO and it will heal! It needs hair and every time wash her butt with water and soap. 3 days and will be fine.

It might be a yeast infested if different products aren't working

And talk to your doctor before putting a bazillion different things on there. Some things are not intended for babies and can make it worse. I used powder and that apparently made it worse:(

Vaseline is just something that is a barrier blocker it actually doesn't help heal. If it's really bad I have used polysporn on my son and within a couple days it's completely gone. Also use a warm cloth and not wipes. Try to dab and not wipe. Also keep the diaper off whenever possible to let the air help heal it. Everytime u change her put polysporn on so that poop and pee doesn't actually touch the skin.

And if all the above solutions don't work, give baby a bath and dry really well and let baby run around naked. Or if she's not walking just let her go diaper less for a few minutes. My son gets terrible rashes! He gets them so bad he bleeds :(. We've asked his doctor about it and this is what he told us :) good luck momma, I hope baby feels better soon!!

Sounds like a yeast infection. Try a 7 day Monistat cream 3 times a day (before baby sleeps) and baby powder in between. It took a couple days to see it start drying up, but it was the only thing that worked and I tried EVERYTHING!

We had really bad rashes we were using pampers. Try changing diapers!

If it persists you should go see a doctor, my son suffered from a horrific diaper rash that would even bleed a little at times.... It turned out to be a fungus. The doc gave me meds..... But what worked wonders was leaving him without a diaper. I would put him near a window so he would get the heat from the sun. (Not direct though)

Bag Balm or calendula cream.
