We use Sudocrem as a barrier, but it also helps get rid of diaper rash. We've used Boudreaux's Butt Paste, and that works well for us.
DS had a pretty nasty rash when he was teething, and our pedi told us it was a normal bacterial rash. He gave us a cortisone cream with a mild steroid in it to use on it. It cleared up within two days. It also helps for him to have some naked time. I let him crawl around on my bed with a waterproof sheet on. The air helps dry out the inflamed skin.
If it doesn't go away within a couple days, definitely go to your pedi.
I use Aquaphor and Butt Paste. They always seem to work for us.
Desitin extra strength works for us. (The purple bottle).
DD recently had awful diaper rash due to the runs. As soon as we started using this it cleared up. The pedi has also advised us in the past to stop using wipes for a couple of days as they tend to irritate it. We used warm wet cloths instead. With that combo, she was better in a couple days.
Lanolin .. Works wonders, seriously. I never would have guessed.
