What you will need:
* Clean, warm water in a bowl
* Large cotton swabs
* Cornstarch or cornstarch baby powder unscented
* Original Desitin (not the creamy kind)
What to do:
*When changing your baby's diaper, be very gentle with the diaper rash area. There are many different wipes out there that claim to be sensitive, but they also contain a chemical solution the keep the wipe wet. The best thing to use is warm water and plain white real cotton balls.
*Dip the cotton balls in the bowl of warm water and use them one at a time to gently dab and clean up any messes. Don't re-dip. Just use one until it is dirty and then throw it away and use another cotton ball. It is helpful to put a towel under your baby when doing this, since the water will run off a bit.
*When the area is all clean, pat it dry with a towel and then let it air dry for a while before putting another diaper on. It is very essential that the area is not damp. This will really help to clear up the diaper rash.
*When you are ready to put the diaper back on, sprinkle a small amount of cornstarch or cornstarch baby powder onto the diaper area and pat it in so it gets all areas.
*At night, use a thin layer of the original desitin on the diaper rash. It is really thick and forms a good protective layer. Don't use the desitin creamy because it wipes off too easily and doesn't work as well.
