I used high strength zinc oxide, hydrogen peroxide, neosporin
, and hyrdocortizone cream. None worked as well as the diaper rash
cream. I would put a ton on, the cover with a high strength band aid and after about 4 days or so, it healed up fast. I am a type 1 diabetic and have a really hard time healing some wounds, but I just wish I would of known about that rash cream before.
