Commercial diaper rash products can contain ingredients which cause allergies, irritation and may even be carcinogenic. Natural products containing herbs are best.
Baby powders can contain formaldehyde and other cancer-causing ingredients.
Petroleum jelly keeps the area moist which only worsens diaper rash already caused by wetness.
Talc can cause allergic reactions from perfumes and other artificial ingredients.
One common herb is chamomile. It eases inflammation, kills pain, and disinfects the area from bacteria.
A drop or two of chamomile oil can be mixed with vegetable oil and applied to the rash. Chamomile tea can also be added to bath water for a soothing bath to ease rashes. Chamomile helps to heal skin too.
