I'm getting ready to go to the store soon... hopefully someone will see this before I leave. I have always used Desitin for my kids' diaper rash and it was a cure-all for us with diaper rash. But, my daughter has diarrhea (again!) and is back in pull-ups for a few days (again!) and her bottom is so sore and some of the little spots are bleeding. I have Desitin (well the Johnson & Johnson brand)... but it's not doing anything to help! I am going to get some real Desitin as this J&J doesn't seem as thick and pasty, but is there anything else that has worked for you all? My poor girl!

Diarrea causes fungus-induced rush that is not really a "diaper" rash. However strange it sounds, the best cream would be the one used for "athlete's foot" - anti-fungal. I used clotrimazole cream USP 1% -- "antifungal agent", when my son had red - bleeding sking from diahrrea.

I am addicted to Burts Bees Baby diaper ointment. It is my fav by far, we have yet to get a diaper rash using it.

Aquaphor works wonders for both my kids. It is clear so it is messy. My dd gets worse diaper rashes than my ds and Aquaphor is just great. I will put it in the evening and by the next morning is gone... hope your dd gets better...

Sorry, I meant "it is clear and not messy"..

I forgot about another really good one that my friend recommended to me. It's called "Triple Paste." That also works really well.

Do they sell sudocreme where u live? I know they do in the UK. That works wonders. Good luck. I had that with ds for a few weeks. Its calmed down as well as his diharrea (sp?). Thing is, once his diharrea stopped his rash miraculously went away too lol. I think thats the only REAL cure for it, although creams do help soothe. I also washed his bum under warm water every time I changed him

Sorry I didn't see this yesterday......as far as diaper creams go I've always liked the original desitin, not the creamy. The J&J that you mentioned is the same consistency as the desitin creamy and I don't like either. They don't seem to stay on well like the original desitin. If dd is having accidents on herself then I would recommend corn starch in her pull up. I've always used it anytime my babies were raw or had diarrhea. It can be messy...especially in a pull up...but it works wonders on a rash!

I am a believer in AQUAPHOR HEALING OINTMENT. My first son had a diaper rash from the minute he was born...literally...(I used the wrong wipe on his b___t while on all the meds from csection and it burned his skin) After 3 weeks and trying everything I could, we finally got the Aquaphor (make sure it is the HEALING OINTMENT) should clear up in 24 hrs or atleast be noticibly different.
