When my daughter was first born, I spent a small fortune on diaper creams and name-brand baby powder (she's prone to diaper rash). She would still get a diaper rash every so often, even though I used the creams with every diaper change. When circumstances forced me to cut back on my expenses, I began using corn starch (from the baking dept.) and pure petroleum jelly (vaseline) from the dollar-store. She has not had a single diaper rash in 4 months! Not only is it much, much cheaper, I think having fewer chemicals against her sensitive skin is much healthier (and really - who is going to get close enough to a baby's butt to smell that baby powder scent?!)

I am glad that the cornstarch and vaseline is working for you. When my daughter was a baby (I am now a grandmother) I found that Desitin was an excellent diaper rash ointment, but it was quite messy, and difficult to wash off. They now have a creamy verison which is easier to handle.

Wishing you and your baby many years of happiness!

When my son was a baby, and very prone to diaper rashes, I tried every cream on the market. I took him to the dr. with a bad case of it. He took one look at him and said "bag balm". It used to only be sold a feed stores for the bag of cattle that were unhealthy. Now it is sold at Wal-mart. That worked better than anything I ever tried! Good luck with your little one and God Bless!

The nurse needs to make note that Lamisil is not approved for children under 12 years of age. I'm sure it is quite effective but safety has not been established and therefore should not be recommended.

I work at a daycare in the infant room and I've seen a lot of rashes. One family uses a home solution that works amazingly well. They bring in a plastic container with a combination of Desitin (or similar), pure cornstarch baby powder, and Lamisil.

It's creamy and seems to provide instant relief for the baby. After a few applications their is no rash in sight. It works! Of course you should always consult with your child's doctor about his/her individual needs, but ask about this combination.

If your baby has diaper rash and you have tried all the creams (i.e. desitin etc.) use Bag Balm and your baby's bottom will clear up overnight. It's the only thing I use for my babies. It also works on their sore noses from blowing them when they have allergies or a cold.

Each baby is different and what works for some doesn't work for the other. We tried quite a few different diaper rash ointments, including; Desitin, Aquaphor Healing Ointment, and Burt's Bees Diaper Rash Cream. Nothing worked as well for my son as Waxelene.

I thought I'd share my sure fire diaper rash preventative. My boys are 60, 57, 55, and 38. I used petroleum jelly Vaseline on their bottoms after each diaper change. We "never" had diaper rash! Not even after I started giving them "real" orange juice.

When my son gets a diaper rash (usually from foods that contain more acid than he can tolerate) instead of using the high priced ointments that don't work on the burning feeling, I use liquid malox or mylanta on his bottom. As soon as I apply that, he feels instant relief. By Green18chick

What is A and D Ointment? It seems to be useful for the whole body. Would this ointment or one with similar qualities be available in Australia?

It is mainly known for diaper rash ointment but has a lot of other uses like you said. The original cream is called A+D Original Ointment, Diaper Rash and All-Purpose Skincare Formula

It's ingredients are: Active Ingredients: Contains: Petrolatum (53.4% - Skin Protectant), Lanolin (15.5% - Skin Protectant)

Inactive Ingredients: Cod Liver Oil (contains Vitamin A & Vitamin D), Fragrance, Light Mineral Oil, Microcrystalline Wax, Paraffin

Try taking the ingredient list to your pharmacist to see what is comparable there in Australia or if they can order the A+D for you. They also make A+D Zinc Oxide Diaper Rash Cream with Aloe.

Hi furlegs from Adelaide, Australia, I did a Google search and you are able to buy the cream on EBay. As Kaelle suggested you could probably go to your local chemist and ask there.

It is often used for diaper (nappy) rash here in the states. I don't know if you are familiar with Desitin, also a rash remedy, but it is along those lines. However, if you want a laugh, all my kids were allergic to Desitin, did not respond well to A and D ointment, so there is another remedy called 'Butt Paste' yes, really. Worked wonders on my kids. I can't stand the name, but I swear by it.

A&D works well to keep a baby's butt healthy as long as the diaper is changed regularly, buy the product called "Butt Paste" heals wounds faster becaise it contains a good amount of zinc which is the healer. I have no babies, but I keep both of these products in my home.
