    the nurse at our pediatrician (JACKIE, kiss, kiss) has a secret recipe:
    1 tube on balmex (4oz or so)
    1 tsp of maalox
    squirt of hydro-cortisone cream
    squirt of triple antibiotic

    i put it in a round ziploc container and whip it up with a fork. it will clear a diaper rash quicker than you can blink an eye. i remember when the nurse gave me the recipe, i was SURE it wouldn't work. boy was i wrong. amazing concoction.

    i also second the lotrimin af (if it's a yeast infection).

    If it's really bad--it might need lotrimin and/or antibiotic. I put a zinc barrier cream over that (any kind with 40% zinc).

    Mix together...

    1/2 tube Desitin
    1/2 tube A&D Ointment
    1 Tablespoon Maalox
    1 Tablespoon Bacitracin (for when rash is bleeding)
    OR
    1 Tablespoon Lotrimin (for when rash is yeast'ish)

    We've been known to put both Bacitracin and Lotrimin in if it's a bleeding yeasty rash. Store in an airtight container.

    Generics are fine but we've found it to be a little thinner and runny. We just practically "paint" kiddos bottom with it and put the diaper on.

    It's a "butt cream" recipe from the local children's hospital. We can get it mixed by a pharmacist locally but I just found out the ingredients and mixed it myself.

    How do you know when a rash is yeastish? My NB has a red raised ring around his anus, but it isn't bloody. I just can't seem to get rid of it bc he poops so often.

    Triple Paste was the only cream that would work for the bleeding rashes the little girl I used to nanny for would get. Her skin was so sensitive.

    DD is almost 9 months and has never really had a diaper rash, but I use Beaudroux's Butt Paste (sp) at each change.

    I guess it is a good preventative creme to stop rash before it starts.

    I remember trying the Maalox recipe in a moment of despairation! We have used the Desitin Overnight cream (I think it's 40% ZO??) along with Aquafor and Triple paste, in varying layers (not usually mixed altogether), depending on the situation.

    And definitely some naked time.... that helps to get air on the bum!

    GL!
