In the October issue of Esquire, Brad Pitt sounds off on issues close to his heart including architecture, music and. . . diaper rash? According to the new dad, “Shiloh’s got horrible diaper rash, poor thing. Same with Zahara when we picked her up in Ethiopa. . . We’ve tried everything — every cream, every salve, every natural product. We haven’t found the the magic ointment. Yet.” We feel bad for Brad and especially for poor little Shiloh, so we’d love your opinions on the best diaper rash treatments out there. Tell us: What diaper rash trick should Brad and Angelina know about? What products would you recommend to them?

UPDATE: Over 1000 readers have thoughtfully given great advice to Brad about how to cure diaper rash — read more about the response here.

When my oldest was born, there was the best cream called DRC (Diaper Rash Cream) that one of the baby magazines clothing/gadgets etc had. They are no longer in business but I have found better… its called CALMOSEPTINE. I believe pharmacies might have it behind their counter if it isn’t on the shelves. You definately need to ask your pediatrician about this wonderful cream.

I know this is going to sound strange, but Maalox. You blot it on like you would a Calamine Cream, it works great. My daughter had diaper rash so bad once that it was nearly impossible to get her to sit still. After blotting on the Maalox (the stuff you drink for stomach aches) with a cotton ball, put a layer of vaseline over it. Give it a few days and its gone.

try ARBONNE! This skin line is 100% botanically based and they have a baby line with a diaper rash ointment. go to and order under my consultant number #16162966

If this is persistent rash- it could very well be yeast. Doctor perscribed this concoction for us a few times:
30g nystatin
30g zinc oxide
30g hydrocortisone cream (1 or 2 percent)
Nystatin is the only thing the prescription is really for, but I have heard you can substitute gynolotrimine (sp)- isn’t that a feminine itch cream for fungus.
Red bumps= fungus
they won’t go away PERMANENTLY without the antifungal.

Sometimes with little girls it’s not just a common dipar rash it’s yeast. Try some common Terezol yeast medication Rx from the doctor, my daughter had it and it only got totally better after she was potty trained.

I had the same problem. Getting rid of the plastic diapers is what helped. Try cloth diapers and be careful of the detergent you use… I am not one to try all sorts of chemicals on babies. Don’t use the wipes either. Use wet washcloths.. Have the nanny microwave them for warmth and test them on the inner part of her arm.. Or just make sure to wet the washcloths right before changing the baby with some warm water and some sort of hyperallergenic soap.. Of the 3 kids I have, only one was very skin sensitive.. Good luck…

Our daughters used to get what we thought was diaper rash, but it looked a little different. When we took them to the doctor, we were told that it was an external yeast infection and to use Monistat 7 cream…cleared it up beautifully!! For normal, run of the mill diaper rash, I also swear by Boudreaux Butt Paste :)

Wash with mild soap and water every diaper change and dry well. My daughter never had diaper rash after using this technique. Besides, it’s more hygenic than using just wipes.
