Can you use diaper rash cream for a pad rash?

In brief: Yes

May of the diaper rash creams contain zinc oxide, which can be helpful for the chaffing/irritation rash caused by pads.
If however, the rash from the pads is from not irritation but actual allergy to the fibers of the pad, the diaper cream probably won't do much.
