What remedies do you use when your little one gets a diaper rash?  I found success using Aquaphor on my guy.  I never thought to try it on diaper rash until I read it on the boards and it worked like magic!  How about you?  What have you found helps heal a diaper rash quickly?

FYI--many diaper lotions and creams will void the warranty for certain brands of cloth diaper because the creams can bind to the fabric and cause repelling.

We had really good luck clearing a diaper rash once with dilute apple cider vinegar (50-50 with water) and then using a shea butter cream once the skin had dried.

And getting some diaper free time to air out always helps the rash clear too by letting the skin breathe more.
