I'd try to figure out what caused it so it can be avoided in the future, but if you have any diaper cream apply some of that. If not maybe sprinkling some corn starch on her bottom so it helps prevent chaffing against fabric and maybe it'll soothe the owie of it all.


My daughter gets diaper rash from pampers wet wipes. When she gets it I wash her with warm water and baby soap dry her use a little corn starch powder rubbed in then the purple tub desitin. It's a pain to do every time she gets a diaper change but it clears it up in a day.
