Severe diaper rash

Recommended Posts

I'm in need of a formula for a cream to help with severe diaper.  Purchased some A&D ointment from the drug store but wondering if there is something I can make myself....have all the necessary ingredients for lotion/cream but curious about what else can be added to the mixture to help with the extreme chaffing.

Any help will be so appreciated.

You need something with zinc. A&D and Aquaphor etc won’t be as effective.


When my twins were little they had so many rash issues and it was so hard to find anything that worked. As much “air time” as we could manage and Calmoseptine was a lifesaver for the nastiest of rashes. It’s one of the best barrier creams I’ve found. 




Sudocrem also worked just as great though it was usually harder for me to source back then. Looks like it’s pretty available now.
