I'm a girl, and seeing as I don't want ovarian cancer, I'd prefer not to use talcum powder. My grandma used talcum based body powder, and got ovarian cancer.

I'm a cream person, but my Little brother is afraid he won't like the feeling of cream on his bum, and I'd rather avoid talcum powder, even when changing him. I'm sure he wouldn't like my alternative of an all male bomb squad changing him.

I've heard of cornstarch, but it feeds yeast. Doesn't it? Are there any talcum powder alternatives that aren't a yeast rash waiting to happen?
