Diaper Rash advice

Okay mom's my son has a terrible diaper rash. I've done everything I can think of to do to get rid of it but it continues to get worst. I'm putting diaper cream on him at every change and changing him more often. I'm giving him a bath nightly to clean him good as well as leaving the diaper off for a little time each day so the diaper rash can breath. Is there anything that I'm not trying that has worked for you ladies or a good diaper cream to recommend. I use Desitin. Thanks

    Change diaper creams. When my son would get bad rashes, we had to switch what cream went on every change, desitin and butt paste. Bag balm works great, coconut oil, are you breastfeeding? the breastmilk will help. Put baking soda in his bath water to help it heal. When you put the cream on, put vaseline over hte cream to keep it moisture proof.
    Find the cause, allergic to food, diapers or wipes?
    Are you cloth diapering or disposables?

      Coconut oil helps a lot also breast milk works good too.

        It could be a yeast rash. My baby girl keeps getting it over and over. A trip to the doc might be a good idea just to make sure. We use an anti fungal med you get from someplace like Walmart in the morning or evening. Then ever diaper change we use the purple tube of desitin. When she gets her bath I put coconut oil on it then the desitin and at least one diaper change a day gets the coconut oil and desitin. It's a lot of work but it's the only thing that has worked for us so far.

          Aquaphor is good to use with bad diaper rash. I've come to learn about its many uses so it's nice to have around. I believe coconut oil is similar if you want to try that.

            We use Aquaphor or vaseline after a few days of using desitin or triple paste to avoid a chemical burn. We also do baking soda wipes and baths. The diapers can also cause diaper rash have you switch diapers recently? Hope he is doing better.
