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.

Plain corn starch you purchase at the grocery store. Works like a charm

My daughter is 10 months old and has had diaper rash once. That one diaper rash was terrible. She was very sensitive to all the over the counter diaper rash creams and doctor prescribed creams I tried so I took the advice of another mom who was waiting at the same time we were in the doctor’s office. We used corn flour and the diaper rash started to get better within the same day and cleared up entirely within 3 days.

I strongly reccomend that you use baking soda directly on the children and also while bathing the children.As much as possible try to let the air get to the girls privates and butts, it might be easy to do this by using a changing pad, so they don’t pee everywhere.One good way to hardly get a rash is during every diaper change use a little vaseline so that nothy will stick directly to the body. Godd luck Brad and Angelina, hopefully the girls get better soon.

Ok several months ago my daughter had this horrible rash, enough to bring her to the doctor. Well here is a little concoction they worked up to help clear up her rash – work within 1 day!!!


Mix together to form a past a paste and apply to area.

The only thing that works for my daughter is Budreaux’s Butt Paste. That works like a charm and for a really bad diaper rash I use antibiotic ointment and then put the butt paste over it.

Boudreaux’s Butt Paste- it works on everything!

When my son has a diaper rash, I don’t not use wipes to clean him, I clean him with just wet wash rag, blow dry his little bottom on cool and low, or take him out side in the sun for a few minutes without a diaper on. That usually clears it up. I hope this help:)

Seriously…change her diapers all the time, and let the area air out a little. Aveeno diaper rash cream will keep the area from being affected more. Also, diaper rash can sometimes be caused by diet, so if Angelina is breast feeding, something she is eating might be affecting Shiloh…let’s not string her up though people…diaper rash can be a pain in the bootie(no pun intended) to clear up…good luck.

Bag Balm (also known as “Udder Butter”) – works like magic!
