    Is the prescription for your daughter or someone else? Personally, I wouldn't use anyone else's meds on my child, but triamcinolone cream is used to treat diaper rash. Use 0.025% cream 3x/day for 7days.

    have u tried cloth diaper?

    instead of using steroids, we used johnson and johnson diaper cream and then a thin layer of petroleum jelly on top. rash was gone in 2-3 days without steroids!

    No. Triamcinolone is a steroid cream and the diaper area is too sensitive for steroid creams unless the doctor has indicated it is necessary.

    Good luck
