My grandmother gave me a great tip - to kill yeasty diaper rash.

Burn 1/2 cup flour in a clean frying pan.

(Yes, it smells bad)

Store in airtight container.

Put a little on the baby with each change.

I know it sounds strange... but it really works great!

And, since it's probably something you already have in your cupboard, it is almost free!

Thanks to Ruth Liew for this Frugal Baby Tip!

    Hmm. I can't imagine why this would work. Wouldn't the flour feed the yeast?

    Hi, I read your tip on caring for diaper rash. I do hear of many stories of people using such odd things as strawberry yogurt on diaper rash. Please be careful with what you place on baby’s bottom. My father is a chemist and formulated Grandma El’s Diaper Rash Remedy & Prevention back in 1974 for me as an infant. Today we have a patent on it and have done many tests to prove that it is allergy free. It is usually best to leave it to the pros when it comes to health issues I believe. Anyway, check out our website at www.grandmaels.com. Grandma El is my mom. The product is absolutely phenomenal and will not only heal, but also prevent diaper rash. Please feel free to email us on the website if you have any questions.
