Have you used this combo, how did it work? Did it hurt your cloth? Dd has diarrhea and her poor bum is screaming red. I put her in a sposie last night, so we could use Desitin, but I think that a fitted would be so nice so it could breathe. The only problem is that the rash definitely needs something on it. California Baby and Burt's Bees' don't seem to cut it. So, what about maalox/aquafor, does that work better than the others and will it hurt her diapers?

i've never done it with maalox, but aquaphor by itself hasn't harmed dd's diapers. do you have any old fleece you can cut up? what about an old receiving blanket to use as a liner?

I have used it and it was the only thing to cure DS's rash after he had diarrhea. I used fleece liners in my cd's, though (even the ones lined in fleece) just to make sure, since I was really slathering the cream on.

We use Aquaphor on occasion by itself and it hasn't seemed to cause any problems with our diapers.

I use mylanta. I do not mix it with anything, just spread it on with a sponge and make sure you use a fleece liner.<br>
I use it everytime we get red booty <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br>
Makes perfect sense too, it neutralizes stomach acid, and that is what ususally causes rash. The acid coming into contact with the skin.<br>
Just paint it on and be sure to change the diaper AS SOON as you can after a movement.<br>
It also has a cooling effect to the skin which is nice.<br>
Remember also not to wipe, but to blot the space, rubbing hurts and does more harm than good<br>
Good luck

i've tried antacids, but they don't do anything for yeast rashes <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"> but doesn't harm the dipes. actually, nothing i've used for rashes has ever harmed my dipes.<br><br>
i'm testing an easy-to-spread lanolin concoction which is currently my favorite for little rashes. I love lanolin, but find it so difficult to use when it's pure - but if it works for you, go for it.

I think I used more Aquaphor than maalox, basically I took a glob of aquafor, added in the maalox until I had something that looked creamy but not runny.

I'm a sposie mama trying CD for the first time, well anyhoo when DD had diahrea, we used an antacid, athlete's foot creme and a+d with zinc ozide. It worked great, but I really don't know what it would do the CDs. I'd reccomend putting some sort of liner.

I have always used a mixture of Milk of Magnesia, zinc oxide, and cornstarch powder when DS would get a bad rash. It works so well!<br><br>
Just be careful and use a liner.

Not to break up the party, but have you ever read the ingredients list on aquafor?<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/bag.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Bag">:<br>
Not something that would help IMO.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/innocent.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="shy"><br><br>
I have used Weleda on bad rashes.The maalox recipe sounds neat!
