Keep it COVERED
The best way to let a diaper rash
heal is to keep the rash coated with a gentle, thick barrier cream. Many of these contain zinc
, but any ointment which will provide a protective layer over the skin will allow the rash time to heal.
Use warm water to wash the area, avoid fragranced wipes, change diapers frequently. If the rash does not heal in 3 days, or looks "infected"', call your pediatrician.
