Homemade 3 Ingredient Diaper Rash Cream - Your Baby Will Thank You! | Emily Reviews
By Asha

I think almost every mom has struggled to relieve diaper rash on their poor sweet baby’s bottom at some point. Sometimes, even though you do your best to keep your baby’s bottom clean and dry, the dreaded diaper rash appears.

It is so heartbreaking seeing your little one’s bottom red and sore! There are all kinds of pre-made diaper rash creams and ointments on the market, but what happens when those are not working?!

Recently, I had just that problem with my daughter. I had tried three different diaper rash creams and none of them were making her better! My best friend came to the rescue and shared this diaper rash cream recipe with me.

She got it from her Family Practice Doctor (who also happens to be our doctor) a few years back when she was struggling to clear up a particularly pesky diaper rash on her little girl. This special diaper rash cream is an equal mixture of the following three ingredients: Clotrimazole Cream, Bacitracin Zinc Ointment, and Hydrocortisone Ointment.

My friend mixes equal parts of the ointments/cream and places them in a small, sealed bowl on her changing table so she has it all mixed up and ready to go, she said it stays nicely mixed for a week or two.

I prefer to just squeeze a small, equal amount of each on my finger then rub it together to mix it and apply right away. Either way works just fine.

I wanted to share this recipe with you in hope it helps you solve any tough diaper rash situations on your little one. Please let me know if you give it a try and how it works for you! Please feel free to pin this post on Pinterest to save it for the future too!

    I don’t have a baby in the house right now but will keep this in mind. I know people that have babies still in diapers. Thank you for the idea.

    I wish I knew this years ago for my son. I swear I bought every over the counter ointment to help him.

  • Dana Rodriguez

    I had never thought about making it. Thanks for the recipe! I pinned it!

    I used to mix diaper rash creams as well! For some reason it just seemed it work better. I never thought about premixing them and keeping in a container though, great idea! I will have to share this with my mommy friends, thanks! 🙂

    This sounds fabulous!! These are all great rash relievers so I can see why it works so well!! It covers all the bases and I love that she premixes them so it’s easy and ready to go!! Great mom hack!

  • Are all of these ingredients available over the counter? Or do you need a prescription?

    Mixing your own like this makes perfect sense. I also like that it doesnt have perfumes or anything like it. I think I would use your method and just mix as needed since there are only 3 things. These are easily found ingredients too which makes it nice.

    When my son is a baby they told me not to use any hydrocortisone cream stronger than 0.5% because it could cause discoloration of the skin.

  • Kindra

    Do you use this in place of normal ointment (Like Desitin) or do you use both at the same time?

  • Brittny

    Careful using cortisone cream though. It will thin the skin if used to much or a to strong really shouldn’t use more than .5%
    My daughter had eczema and her pediatrician warned about to much cortisone cream being used it can discolor and thin skin.
