Diaper rash can also be caused by excessive acidity on the skin, in combination with the irritating nature of the diaper itself. Milk of Magnesia is known as a common laxative, and may seem like the opposite of what you want to keep a diaper clean, but for the treatment of diaper rashes, spread some milk of magnesia directly on the affected area. The Milk of Magnesia acts as an antacid and neutralizes the excess acidity on the skin that causes the painful inflammation on a baby’s bottom.
