A friend of mine suggested using over the counter acne pads which contain salicylic acid. You use the pads to scrub the rash when it itches. Apparently, the salicylic acid works to break down the oils and speeds the healing process. It also satisfies the urge to scratch. I can't find any information on this as a remedy but it worked great for me! My rash was all but gone in about 36 hours. Tip: Get alot of pads and use them liberally.
