^My approach was basically the same for diaper rash-to keep the area as clean and dry as possible (changed clothes more often) and applied a diaper rash barrier cream to promote moist wound healing. In our case the rash was so horrid we did not get results with regular diaper creams so I used Calmoseptine, which was developed for use in nursing homes-basically it's industrial strength barrier cream. But now I would try lanolin or coconut oil.
