What do you use that doesn't stain? I have heard that shea butter is supposed to be good, but I am not sure if it stains--it discolored my diapers, but I haven't washed them yet. Also the shea butter is not yet making any difference (after 24 hrs) and I am not sure if I just need to keep using it.<br><br>
Also has anyone experienced MORE diaper rash with CDs? I have just started using CDs and then this rash came on. I wondered if the CDs might be causing it. I am using Country Save, baking soda, vinegar, bac-out in my wash if any of that could contribute.<br><br>
Thanks!

First, you should figure out what kind of diaper rash it is. This page is helpful: <a href="http://www.askdoctorsears.com/html/8/T081400.asp" target="_blank">Types of Diaper Rash</a><br>
I recommend using TTO in your wash to kill any yeast or bacteria. Also, make sure you wash and dry on hot.

<a href="http://www.pinstripesandpolkadots.com/diaperrashcreams.htm" target="_blank">pinstripesandpolkadots.com</a> has a list of creams and how well they work with cloth. I chose Weleda because it works well and was easy to find where I live.<br><br>
I've also tried olive oil and that worked well. As far as I know there's no problem with using it with cloth. If you're really concerned you could just use some diaper liners.
