Milk of Magnesia & Diaper rash

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Anyone heard of using this ON diaper rash? A lady here at work suggested it. The baby has it real bad right now and she said to try this instead of A&D or Desitin.

What do you think???

OH YES! I have heard of this and it works GREAT! You just mix some Maalox with some baby powder until it forms a paste and slap that on their rear end over the rash. Its awesome!! Better than anything else I've tried before for a really bad rash. Hope it helps your little one!

Oh, I also use the Huggies cocoa butter wipes...they are a little more expensive but they don't sting when you wipe. Still use those for DS when I take off his Pull-up in the morning.

I use Milk of Magnesia on sunburn and it is GREAT! It takes the burn away and is cool and soothing. Sometimes you have to put it on a couple of times, but it feels really good. I would say to try it and see. Put some on a cotton ball and use on affected areas. The only thing is if it dries on, you will have to use a warm wash cloth to remove it. If you try it, let me know if it works.

Try it with the baby powder too...that'll keep it from being too runny and from getting sticky.

Isn't it amazing how all you have to do is ask a question here on this board - and SOMEONE will know the answer? That is great. . . .Good luck with the Milk of Magnesia!

I also found that if it startes to look fungal. ( raw and bumpy) use the same cream that they sell for jock itch. It works in two ir three days.

You can also use it on your face as a facial mask, its supposed to do something good for your skin, I forgot what though.

Actually milk of magnesia and cornstarch baby powder was the ONLY thing that worked on my youngest- she was born with what I thought was a horrible diaper rash- turned out she had thrush so bad it showed up there! I would put on the milk and then put the powder on top- cleared it up in a matter of days (and I mean it was a horrible- raw mess!).
