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.

I used Ammens powder with Desitin at the same time for my now grown three children and now for my grandkids and it works great. Good luck!!!

Not that Mr. Pitt will actually read this…. To prevent future rash, stop using any commercial baby wipes for cleaning up stool. Use a clean washcloth and warm water. You can keep a thermos of warm water at the changing station. Let baby air dry for a few minutes before placing a new diaper on her.

Pee diapers don’t really require a wipe after – it gets sucked into the diaper quickly. Clean stool off skin immediately.

Once a rash exists, expose to air as much as posible. Apply diaper cream without perfumes or scents. Aveeno makes nice products.

Once it clears up, prevention is key (see first paragraph).

Baking Soda baths. Let them sit in it for 10-15 mins next day it will be gone

My daughters get diaper rash very infrequently but when they do it is bad. Im sure that every case and baby is different but for my girls the best thing was baking soda baths (we just let them sit in a baby tub with baking soda for as long as we could) and then hold their little but to a fan and let it air dry. That seemed to be the most important part. We would then make a baking soda and water paste (pretty thick) and put it on the rash and then diaper them up. This works really well with my girls.

Well hands down using the Lotrim AD for athletes foot. I know seems weird but one the kids love the way it feels on it cools and feels good to be applied on.
It is the same cream used by women with yeast infections it’s just called Monistat outer cream.
Ask any doctor and they will tell you it is a great diaper rash cream!!
After three kids mine would have it no other way. Have used Buttpaste and it does help but not the same.

When my little girl (who is 2)got a bad diaper rash – my doctor recommend just using cold water and a paper towel to help soothe the rash and it worked. Also, I use still to this day .. DESTIN Overnight – the creamy version and my little one has not had a diaper rash since!!

The best stuff out there is Butt Paste. Also, I didn’t use baby wipes (they broke my daughter out) instead I used baby washclothes that I had gotten wet in warm water that had a little baby wash in it.

AIR – fresh air….let her run naked…..let her nap with her little bum uncovered…..and sleep that way too if it’s too terrible….be sure and put plenty of things down under her in case she soils the bed or the carpet. But AIR is the best….need to get the moisture off their bums. And if you need to have a diaper on them, get a little fan and blow some cool air on there in between changings to keep the affected area cool and dry…’s a miracle worker that dry air.

Lots of air and corn starch!!! It works in Louisiana and we have a very dry, humid climate. It’s worked on both of my babies!1
