  • Diaper Rash Remedy

    Diaper rash and heat rash can come on rather quickly, particularly when a baby is teething or experiencing allergies to various foods, a switch from diaper brands, etc. Here is a simple, do it yourself remedyto quickly soothe away an irritating rash.


    Simply add 1 cup of plain all-purpose flour in a skillet over medium heat and stir frequently until it is evenly browned. Flour is known to be flammable, so don't get overly rambunctious with your stirring motion if you're using a gas stove.

    Remove from heat, Cool completely. Store the mixture in a covered container. We found that mason jar with
    a repurposed parmesan cheese lid worked wonderfully!

    Apply the cooled flour following each and every diaper change; the rash should clear up completely within three days.

    This remedy also works well on heat rash (in adults as well as children), which is common during the hot summer months.

      My children are 46 and 44 and my Grandma told me about browned flour and cornstarch too. Makes sense, in the real old days they either didn't have baby powder or not enough money for things.

      My husband works in the oilfield and comes home with bad heat rash. Sometimes almost from head to toe. And I do what I can but nothing seems to work. I'm definitely going try this when he get home this time.

      I was wondering if you could use self-rising flour? I don't buy plain flour. I could get some in a couple of days but I really need this right now. Thanks !!!

      In response to Iswhite I don't think you can use self-rising flour because it has salt in it. I think the salt would make the skin burn and itch.
