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.

Bourdeaux Butt Paste from Wal-Mart or Rite-Aid it the greatest. I also put baking soda in my little girls bath water.

The thing that I found for both boys and girls is to get rid of the babywipes for a while. A clean, warm, washrag and a blowdryer works the best.

First, make sure the rash isn’t actually a form of yeast infection, if the mother has been on antibiotics, it can cause yeast to grow out of control, also in the form of a persistant diaper rash, otherwise bag balm, in the green can is amazing!


Try cloth diapers for awhile, her skin is infected and it needs to have get some fresh air.

The best stuff is lotramin AF (yes the fungal foot stuff) and always use Johnson & Johnson’s cornstarch powder at every changing.

I found that the best cream to use is Desitin Diaper cream. The thickness of the cream provides a cream barrier between the skin and the wetness of the diaper – Good Luck.

Good ol’ fashioned Vaseline. It keeps the wetness away and clears the rash.

Stop using baby wipes and use warm wet paper towels or a cloth diaper. I always soak my Son in a warm bathtub with baking soda and then use Lotrimin I know that sounds scary but his Doctor reccomended it and it has worked everytime overnight especially when it turns to a yeast diaper rash.

The best thing for diaper rash is to make sure you dry off the entire area before you put the new diaper back on. I use a diaper cloth just for that purpose. You don’t need any type of cream or powder if you just keep the area dry. I have four kids and it has always worked.
