This wiki has been updated 14 times since it was first published in January of 2017. Without treatment, diaper rash is inevitable. Luckily, there are many creams to keep flare-ups to a minimum, or prevent them from occurring in the first place. Our selections include products that contain zinc oxide as well as all-natural, organic options for sensitive skins. You can experiment to find one that works best for your child, and remember to always do a patch test first. When users buy our independently chosen editorial selections, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki. Skip to the best diaper rash cream on Amazon.

Whether you're using a cloth or disposable diaper on your little one, the likelihood of a rash is almost guaranteed unless you take preventative measures, among them using a good diaper rash cream, many of which can also treat flare-ups once they occur. We chose selections with a host of different ingredient types, as every baby is different and has his or her special sensitivities to account for. We favored creams that were tested by pediatricians and dermatologists, as well as certified organic, cruelty-free, and non-GMO.
We still love Era Organics Honeybuns but felt that Earth Mama Soothe would serve organically-minded parents better, and since CeraVe Baby ran into availability issues, we took the opportunity to replace it with GroVia All Natural Magic, an effective balm in a convenient stick form.
We also updated our old Boudreaux's Butt Paste selection with the company's maximum strength offering and added The Honest Company Cream to provide more selections for parents who want only all-natural ingredients going on their baby's skin.
Even the most natural formulas may still have an ingredient that irritates your baby, which is why we have to stress that parents do a small patch test before administering any creams to their child. This way you can know for sure if they'll react poorly to it, and spare you both from irritation. Ointments should always be kept where babies cannot reach them.
