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.
