Oatmeal does wonders regarding diaper rashes and gives big relief to baby from rash. Simply add a tablespoon of dried oatmeal to the bathwater. Make your baby have a bath in that water, and let your child sit in the baby bathtub full of oatmeal-added water for about 5-10 minutes. Take your child out of the water and then with soft hands pat dry him/her. If the diaper rash is severe then do this thing 2 times a day.

Aloe Vera

If your child has to sever inflammation on the skin because of diaper rash then use aloe Vera gel. Use fresh aloe vera gel or may be from bottled aloe vera from the market.

Epsom Salt

Epson salt has high magnesium content and is anti-inflammatory. Take a cup of Epsom salt and mix it well with the warm bath water for the baby. Let your baby soak in for 10-15 minutes. Include this 2-3 times in a week of baby bathing and you will observe positive results.
