Brad Pitt Needs Your Help! Got Any Diaper Rash Advice?

09/11/2006 at 02:00 PM ET

In the October issue of Esquire, Brad Pitt sounds off on issues close to his heart including architecture, music and. . . diaper rash? According to the new dad, “Shiloh’s got horrible diaper rash, poor thing. Same with Zahara when we picked her up in Ethiopa. . . We’ve tried everything — every cream, every salve, every natural product. We haven’t found the the magic ointment. Yet.” We feel bad for Brad and especially for poor little Shiloh, so we’d love your opinions on the best diaper rash treatments out there. Tell us: What diaper rash trick should Brad and Angelina know about? What products would you recommend to them?

UPDATE: Over 1000 readers have thoughtfully given great advice to Brad about how to cure diaper rash — read more about the response here.

We used Hydrocortisone .5% with Aloe, cleared it right up. She never fussed when we put it on like she did with some diaper creams either. Butt paste never worked on her and from what the Dr. said any type of powder just turns into a paste when the diaper gets wet, and it holds moisture against the skin instead of creating a barrier, making diaper rash worse.

Johnson’s baby powder w/cornstarch. First off, be sure to change the diapers at least every 2 hours, and use a baby wipe to clean her up – even if she’s only wet. Apply the powder and that will help dry up any oozy rash she might have. You can never be too careful, those baby girls can get horrible rashes! Good luck!

i always used A & D ointment…worked really well for my baby!

Well from a mom of three, the best thing for diaper rash was always, isle paste. It’s thick but I swore by it!!

Boudreaux’s Butt Paste and sun shine! As they play and sleep through out the day let them go without a diaper, lying on a towel, beside a window or outside. Keep their diaper area clean and dry. Then when you HAVE to put a diaper on place a think layer of butt paste on the red areas. Your baby will be thanking you!!!

Cook some flour in a pan until it turns brown, let it cool & sprinkle it on. NOTHING works better.

Try cornstartch…maybe an old wives tale but I swear it works…and change the little ones more often.

Make sure the rash isn’t yeast… bright red w/ small bumps.. if it is, he needs Nystatin to clear it up. Triple Paste, or Zinc Oxide works.

In my point of view the best cream is BEPANTHEN 5%. I have used it on my daughter since she was born. We NEVER had anymore rash after that.

Use burnt flour. Yes, flour. Put some regular flour in a baking pan and put it in the oven on 350. Bake it until it turn slightly brown. One of those home remedies that truly does work. Just use it like baby powder.
