In brief: Rash

depends on the cause if it is due to candida then Nystatin or Lotrimin will work really well but if is due to ammonical diaper rash than butt paste or Desitin (zinc oxide diaper cream) works equally well and last but not the least if it is due to the elastic on the diaper changing the brand will help.
The best thing to do is to switch to cloth diapers then you will never see diaper rashes
