The Best Diaper Rash Creams & Ointments

Is the diaper rash cream you're using doing its job? To help you find the right remedy for your little one, we asked Circle of Moms members to name the best diaper rash creams on the market. More than 300 moms responded, and while there wasn't a unanimous favorite, all 13 of the following diaper rash creams got rave reviews from numerous moms. 

1. Bordreaux's Butt Paste

“The greatest butt paste out there! It's like the "magic" eraser of all diaper rash cream! Literally her rash would be gone in one use.”     -April H.

2. Triple Paste

“I use Triple Paste on my son. He had some terrible rashes when he was teething, looked like burns. I put Triple Paste on super thick at night and by morning it was gone.”   - Jennifer J.


3. Sudocrem

“I think that Sudocrem rocks. Any time my Luci had diaper rash, it worked on the first application, and I have recommended it to many of my friends, and same thing for them!” -Brenna U. 

4. Dr. Smith’s

“My little girl had the worst diaper rash that we could not get to go away. I tried everything available and nothing worked like Dr Smith's. It's a little hard to find but we figured out the secret...they keep it behind the counter at the pharmacy in Target. If they're out, they'll order more and have it there in a day for you.” -Jeannine G.

5. Arbonne Baby Care Herbal Diaper Rash Cream

"I love the Arbonne ABC Diaper Rash Cream, it has some great healing and pain helping herbs in it (with no mineral oil).” -Dionne R. 

6. Burt’s Bees Diaper Ointment

“I swear by the Burt’s Bees diaper cream! I'm all about being natural and it is hands down the most effective at clearing up diaper rash. My daughter got open sores on her bottom from citrus fruits and I would load it on and the open sores would be gone in no time. AND it smells so darn good!” -Sara M.

7. Bag Balm

“Bag Balm is the best thing you can get for diaper rash, I think. I have 5 children and have used it with 4 of them. It works wonders. Our children get really bad diaper rash, to the point where they are so raw and the skin is horribly broken open. Within a couple of hours a really sore and bleeding bum is healed. I love it!” -Tina A.

8. Aveeno Baby Soothing Relief Diaper Rash Cream

“This is what works best for my daughter, she gets rashes quickly and they are so pale the daycare doesn't notice them until they are pretty bad. If I can get her to cooperate for frequent diaper changes this stuff works very well.” -Kelly K.

9. Weleda Calendula Diaper Care

“We swear by Weleda Calendula Nappy Cream, our daughter is three and while she was a baby it prevented any rash, now it clears up any starting or rash between nappy cream ever, we recommend it to everyone we know. :)” -Denise

10. Desitin

“Desitin has always worked great on my daughter. It is just like they say. It goes away in one use.”   -Wendy W.

11. Aquaphor

“My daughter has extremely dry skin and our doc gave us a prescription for Aquaphor to use as an alternative to lotion. I know you can buy it over the counter also. But it works wonders on rash too!! Its colorless and odorless so it doesn't irritate the skin. -Amanda H.

12. A&D

“A&D always works wonders for my three...It's great for healing.” –Jill F.

13. Lansinoh Diaper Rash Ointment

“Works fast and is soothing, especially for newborn extra sensitive skin!” –Cobey D.
