what works for diaper rashes

What's the bottom line on what works for diaper rashes?

Barrier formulations (zinc oxide, vitamin A&D ointment, lanolin, etc) can protect the skin and are soothing.

Creams are less messy and easier to remove...but ointments contain more petrolatum and offer more protection. Tell parents to apply these products with each diaper change.
