Nappy rashes will disappear in a short span if you follow any of the below home remedies continuously. Before that, it is highly advisable to switch from disposable diapers to diapers made of cloth which are reusable. 

1.  Vinegar

  • After washing the cloth diapers normally using soap, add half a cup of vinegar to half bucket of fresh warm water and soak all the into it. This will remove any soap particles and urine smell present in the diapers
  • You can also dilute 1 teaspoon of Apple Cider Vinegar in one cup of water. Take a cotton swab and dip it in the solution and dab it on your baby's bottom. It will avoid the yeast infections and relieve the pain/irritation caused due to rashes.
  • You can buy Apple Cider vinegar here


2.  Petroleum Jelly

  • After removing the soiled diaper, clean the baby's bottom with luke-warm water
  • Wipe it dry with a cotton cloth and apply a thin layer of petroleum jelly on it
  • Repeat this every time the diaper is changed for quick healing
  • You can buy it here

3. Baking soda

  • Add 2 tablespoon of baking soda in a tub of warm water and bathe your baby for 10 minutes in it. Pat dry thoroughly after the bath. Repeat this twice a day.
  • Alternatively, you could also dissolve 2 tablespoons of baking soda in 4 cups of warm water and use this solution to wash the baby's bottom every time the diaper needs to be changed. Again, pat dry thoroughly after washing.
  • You can buy it here

4. Oatmeal

  • Grind 1 tablespoon of the oatmeal thoroughly to form a powder
  • Add this to one bucket of warm water and let your baby soak in it for 10-20 minutes
  • The natural compounds in oatmeal helps remove the excess oil/dirt from the skin and forms a protective barrier 
  • You can buy it here

5. Coconut oil

  • Apply a thin layer of coconut oil every time you change the baby's diaper after wiping the bottom clean
  • You can also add half a spoon of coconut oil in half a bucket of warm water to give the much needed moisture 
  • You can buy it here
It is also advisable to keep the baby be bottomless for atleast some time in a day so that the skin can breathe and heal quickly.
