Diaper Rash

Mothers often ask me: "What can I do to clear my Baby's diaper rash?"

Even when we change diapers every couple of hours and allow baby to be diaper free as often as we can, still our little one can suffer from diaper rash.  

Nutrition:

Diet can play an important roll in avoiding or clearing up diaper rash.  Nursing moms should avoid sugary, sweet foods and drinks and greasy, fried, spicy foods.  Baby could have a sensitivity to specific foods.  Through NAET allergy elimination treatments, we can discover and clear up the rash, and any other symptoms.

External treatments:

Try applying one of the following: Aloe Vera, Coconut butter, Fresh cucumber juice, Olive Oil, Breastmilk, Clay, Acidophilous or Loquat leaf tea.

Cook gan cao (licorice) in roasted sesame seed oil, until charred, strain and apply.

Decoct the following 3 herbs: Huang Qin, Huang Bai and Huang Lian, strain and use as an herbal wash.
