Brad Pitt Needs Your Help! Got Any Diaper Rash Advice?

09/11/2006 at 02:00 PM ET

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.

The best stuff is Boudreaux’s Butt Paste. They sell it at Target or Walmart or online at

When my daughter was born another mother (of a girl) told me the best way to PREVENT diaper rash is to use A&D ointment with every diaper change. I did and my daughter was rash free except for once when an antibiotic caused it. I had to use medicated powder to clear it up. I was told girls have more of an issue then boys. I never did anything with my son and I don’t recall him ever having diaper rash.

Johnson & Johnsons Baby Cornstarch –not Baby Powder.

Worked wonders for my son & nephews!



Use destin,(white medicine) all the time whether it is needed or not…Never had a problem with diaper rash with this method.

If you are using disposable diapers STOP. Use cloth diapers rinsed at least twice ,before drying, and apply cornstarch to rash.

First off if you have two kids with bad diaper rash you need to lookin into your diaper changing habits.

Second, if it is really bad, use the over the counter medicine for Yeast infections. My cousin had to use it for her son because his was so bad that it made him bleed.

I used the Butt Paste, like everyone else here and it always worked well. However I was lucky and only had to deal with it once.

DO NOT use Desitin, Johnson & Johnson, or anything over the counter. They all burn and don’t help. The best stuff is Triple Paste. It has to be ordered at your local pharmacy and takes 24 hours. Pediatricians should also have samples. My daugther had welt/sores because her rash was so bad and it cleared it up very fast. It also works as a great cream of any kind of skin irriation. Best product around – for anyone.

A&D Ointment is GREAT for prevention and healing of diaper rash.

Triple Paste Medicated Ointment For Diaper Rash is the BEST!!!!
Active Ingredients:zinc Oxide 11.6.
Inactive Ingredients:White Petrolatum,Corn starch,anhydrous lanolin,stearyl alcohol,white beeswax,cholesterol,Polysorbate 80.
Cleanse and allow skin to dry. Apply an even, visible layer over the diaper area. Use after each diaper change or bath and before bed, or anytime exposure to wet diapers may be prolonged.

Try Aquaphor. It is a bit expensive; however, I don’t think they will mind. I know it is for dry skin but it seems to work on my little guy.
