When to Use Diaper Cream

When should you use diaper cream? This video will explain the uses of diaper creams and how to treat diaper rashes. There are a whole bunch of creams out there, but they all fall into two categories. One is similar to a Vaseline, the other would be a thicker, heavier white cream. Some examples of good diaper cream brands are Desitin, Balmex, and Triple Paste. This last one is pretty expensive but very effective at healing diaper rashes.
Yeast Infection Diaper Rash Treatment
With girls, the diaper rash might actually be a yeast infection. Your doctor will recommend a blend of diaper rash cream and a female cream in this case. I found that it’s very effective if you use one type of cream, such as a thick white cream, and alternate it the next time with another type similar to a Vaseline. Always ask your doctor which they recommend, and of course, if your baby’s skin is no longer irritated by the baby diaper rash, you can forgo the cream altogether.
