My kids were lucky to only have a diaper rash a handful of times and the standard Desitin worked just fine. However, one time my daughter got a nasty rash with some sores and redness that caused her a lot of pain. Seeing her cry, kick, and scream was not something we could tolerate, so we rushed her to the pediatrician. After a quick look, they gave us this recipe. Then, after a quick trip to the pharmacy and the first use it soothed her bottom immediately. We applied it at every diaper change and it healed in just a couple of days.
Magic Diaper Rash Cream
Mix together 2T of Maalox with half a tube of A&D, Desitin, Bacitracin, and Lotrimin.
Use after ever diaper rash until healed!
If your little one has a rash that needs something more powerful than the standard store-bought cream, this recipe just might do the trick! Now that I am expecting baby no. 3 I will be stocking up on these ingredients ASAP!
By the way, ask your doctor first, just to be safe!
