When my son had a horrible diaper rash, I would first put a thick layer of diaper cream on his bottom.

I liked to use Triple Paste Medicated Ointment.

Then I would coat it with Vaseline® to keep any further wetness away from his skin, while it healed.

Add a bit of fresh air time on a receiving blanket and waterproof pad.

I would drape a cotton prefold (or you could use a receiving blanket) over his bits, to prevent any sprays!

Worked like a charm!
