The most useful homeopathic support for diaper rash is Calendula ointment. It is an ointment made of calendula flowers – from the marigold family – this ointment supports the healing of the skin and can be applied directly on open sores. If you baby has a tendency to get diaper rash consider:
Yeast – this usually presents as little red raised bumps
food allergies – around the mouth and on the bum are two places food reactions make themselves known.
a need for more air time – let your babe have lots of time out of the diaper, lay down an old towel and let them have some time and air on their bum, especially with a diaper rash.
vaccination reactions– if an intense rash occurs around vaccination consider this an adverse reaction and REPORT it.
breast milk – spray breast milk on rashes to promote healing and avoid creams such as petroleum or zinc based products.
