Being parents for the first time has tons of difficulties. Treating diaper rash is one of those difficulties. There’re lots of available medications, but maybe you want to use things that are as close to the nature as possible when taking your baby into consideration. There’re several home remedies that you can try to treat diaper rash, but remember that if the rash starts to bleed or spread beyond the area of the diaper, you should call the doctor. There’re different things you can try, and each remedy below is advised to use separately, not in combination.

Things you may need

·         Cornstarch

·         Aloe plant

·         Calamine lotion

·         Oatmeal

Instruction

·         Take off the diaper, wipe the bottom part of the baby gently, and let this area expose to the fresh air. Exposing the bottom area to the fresh air will make it dry and easier to be healed. You should do this for a while after changing the diaper, though you apply medication to it. Make sure that the baby’s bum is dry and before you apply anything onto this area.

·         Apply cornstarch on the baby’s bum after removing the dirty diaper and clean the baby’s bottom thoroughly. Cornstarch will protect the skin from the moisture and help to cure it. Cornstarch is available in the baking aisle of the grocery store.

·         Apply aloe vera from the aloe plant on the area with rash after cleaning the bum thoroughly. Aloe vera is commonly used to treat scald and small wounds, and that’s an ingredient in many remedies. Applying it on the sore area will help to heal it. You can apply cornstarch on aloe vera if you want extra protection.

·         Apply calamine lotion on the sore bum after changing the diaper or bath the baby. Calamine is an old medication used to treat the bites from the insets, rash and small wounds.

Advice and warnings

·         Keeping the baby dry is very important to prevent diaper rash and make him feel better. Changing diaper for your baby right when you know he’s wet will help with the process of healing.

·         Limiting the amount of acidic food you’re feeding the baby may reduce the appearance of diaper rash. Acidic foods contain peach, orange and orange juice, tomato, anything from the citrus family, apple, caramel apple, strawberry, pear and other fruits.

·         If you see blood, consult your doctor. If using home remedies can’t solve the problem with your baby, you should look for a better medication to treat diaper rash. Doctors or other parents can help you with this.
