what causes Diaper Rash

A baby's rash is an example of the white blood cells being

preoccupied. When chemicals are used in the diaper, the white

blood cells go after the chemicals and let the yeast grow. Drying

the baby's skin helps since the yeast must have dampness. This

should be done with air, sunlight and a heat lamp, not with more

chemicals! Certainly not with cortisone containing salves that

further reduce the immune competence of white blood cells.

Use a heat lamp for five minutes at a time, several times a

day. Switch to cloth diapers; do not bleach them with chlorine

bleach, the residual chlorine trapped in the cloth is a chronic

irritant, setting the stage for another rash and future chlorine-

allergy. Cloth diapers should be sterilized, not bleached. Use the

hottest water your laundry system is capable of producing. Add ½

cup borax for the washing process. If you have homemade

Lugol’s iodine (made by your pharmacist or by yourself, see

Recipes), add a tsp. to the wash or rinse. Vinegar is a yeast in

hibitor, add it to the rinse. Dry diapers at the hottest setting. Dry

to kill. Kill all the yeast spores in the diapers.

To strengthen the baby's skin against future infection, do not

put chemicals on the skin. Do not use any soap, fragrance, bath

oil, ointment or lotion. Do not use cotton balls or baby wipes. Do

not give a daily bath. Wash bottoms gently, with borax followed

by a vitamin C rinse. Vitamin C is acid and is our natural healing

agent but it will sting on a broken skin surface. Use it as dilute as

necessary to be tolerated. Zinc oxide is another natural healer

because it competes away the iron that fungus and bacteria need

for their reproduction. Never use commercially available zinc

compounds though, simply purchase your own zinc oxide

powder, mix it with cornstarch and keep in a large old salt

shaker, dust it wherever there is moisture or fungus growth.
