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?

the best thing i ever used on my kids when they were little: utter balm. you can get it from a natural food store. also i found with my oldest& my middle child who got a rash all the time, was the diapers i was buying were causing the rash. maybe change to a different brand.

My third child had a instant reaction to walmart’s brand diaper. Diaper Rash and Blisters all over her butt. I took her to the doctor and he said just use diaper rash ointment and keep a diaper off so it can air out. When bathing until the worst part goes away don’t use soap on it it will irritate the rash and NO baby wipes(alcohol will sting it bad)use wet paper towels.

F.Y.I>>>>>>The diapers could be causing the rash also. They might need to try a different brand or go to clothes.

One thing to remember is that our skin needs to breathe, especially when it’s covered all the time. Ever notice that when you take off a band-aid or a bandage, it heals a lot faster? Get a couple of those puppy pads that you lay around your house when you are training a young pet, lay her on them and just let her play for a while stark naked and put a little vaseline to relieve the dryness an itching. Also a baby bath full of baby oil is nice too.

Good ol’ fashion Vaseline. Possibly change the brand of diapers. That helps.

the best remedy i found for my son who suffers from ecsema as well as the odd diaper rash is LITTLE ONES FOR BABY BUMS…it is a spray bottle full of a wonder cure that sprays a light mist of treatmant onto the bum of babies. It eliminates wiping a thick cream over an already irritated bum!!!!!!

Boudreaux Butt Paste..It was concoted by a pharm in Mandeville, Louisana. It works.

Carol on

Try Triple Paste, that’s what it’s called. It may be the same thing as Boudreaux’s Butt Paste, but without the fancy schmancy name. Pharmacy’s carry them.

If you would rather go a natural route… brown some all purpose flour in a cast-iron pan and apply it to her diapers, my daughter was allergic to absolutly everything and I found that this cleared it up with in a few diaper changes without costing any extra money or irritations.

My daughter had severe diaper rash that would sometimes become very raw immediately, she’d even sometimes get really red on her face too. I started using natural aloe to sooth along with Boudreaux’s Butt Paste and Corn Starch to create a barrier and keep it dry.

I was nursing at the time and noticed what I ate would sometimes affect her skin. I reduced my intake of spicy and acidic foods and noticed a big difference just from that as well.

Boudreaux’s Butt Paste:
