I cloth diaper my son and for some reason every so often he gets this horrible rash. I think it's his over night diaper sitting on his skin for so long. He pees A LOT. But he sleeps 12 hours now (17 months) so I don't want to disturb his sleep. Anyway, about once a month this horrible rash that bleeds and makes him scream occurs. I started bathing him in colloidal oatmeal and putting coconut oil on his bum after baths and in the morning it is almost gone. So, I decided to make my own rash cream. I use virgin coconut oil, a few drops of witch hazel and enough colloidal oatmeal to make it a thick paste and voila! He is forever cured of the nasty rash. I keep it in the fridge, not sure why, but I think it helps it stay fresh? Try it try it try it!!
