Baking soda has many healing properties, including addressing diaper rash without harming a baby's delicate skin. Dissolve two tablespoons of baking soda in four cups of water. At every diaper change, use the mixture to wash the baby's bottom and the affected area. Pat the skin dry before putting on a fresh diaper. Adding a couple of tablespoons of baking soda to the baby's bathwater and letting them sit in the solution for up to 15 minutes, three times a day, will work wonders on the rash and is a great way to prevent it from coming back. Remember to dry the rash completely before putting on a new diaper.
