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 chlorineallergy. 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 inhibitor, 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.
