    MY SON IS A YEAR OLD NEXT WEEK, AND I'VE BEEN USING THIS FROM DAY 1. I RECEIVED A TRIAL TUBE, AND USED IT AS NECESSARY, BUT ONCE I RAN OUT I USED THE NEXT STORE BOUGHT BRAND. NOTHING COMPARES!!!!!! I IMMEDIATELY GOT ONLINE AND BOUGHT 3 TUBES, AND HAVE REPEATED MY ORDER EVER SINCE. IF YOU HAVE NOT TRIED IT YET, PLEASE DO. IT'S THE BEST FOR YOUR CHILD. WHEN MY SON GETS A DIAPER RASH, IT IS GONE THE VERY NEXT DAY. WITH OTHERS, I SAW IT TOOK ALMOST A WEEK TO BE COMPLETELY GONE. I WISH IT WAS SOLD IN ALL STORES, BUT FOR THE BENEFITS, IT'S TOTALLY WORTH IT!

    I have religiously used this product on my children and noticed in my last order, the new and improved product actually means newly perfumey! I hate the old lady smell and want to use unscented goods. I hate to say it, but I will probably not buy this again.

      Comments about Balmex Multi-Purpose Healing Ointment, 3.5 oz:

      This works so much better than other products that are similar for diaper rash on young children and chafing on others, such as from heat and sweating. It goes on and stay in place, but is a little difficult to remove because of that benefit. It is a good moisture barrier as a preventative, as well. It soothes sunburns and bee stings, too. The only thing I wish were different is that the Balm of Gilead that was part of the ingredients had not been removed. It really was better with this as part of the content. Rashes, chafing, burns and stings all literally healed overnight. Now, it takes a few days, but it still is effective and the best product for these uses available.

          Comments about Balmex Multi-Purpose Healing Ointment, 3.5 oz:

          My skin is very sensitive, so I'm an adult user of baby products. This works better (and smells better) than A+D ointment. It's similair to Vaseline, but worked better on my dry skin because of the added dimethicone that Vaseline doesn't have. I use it on my feet, as a lip balm, and as a scalp soother. You get so many uses out of this product.

            Comments about Balmex Multi-Purpose Healing Ointment, 3.5 oz:

            I am angry that I only found out about how great this product is now that my son is almost 2! We have tried so many other products (Butt Paste, Desitin, A&D) and nothing works as great as this does! I love how smooth it goes on, so you don't have to rub hard on their already irritated bottom. I also appreciate the fact that it is oderless. Nothing grosses me out more than smelling the A&D and Desitin on your hands all day. It is hard to eat lunch when all you smell is diaper rash cream. I was also very impressed by how well it works. It cleared up my son's diaper rash in one night. I think this is a must have for any new parent.

              Comments about Balmex Multi-Purpose Healing Ointment, 3.5 oz:

              Five Stars from our family!! This product was recommended to me for chapping & scarring around my son's mouth. He has dark skin, so the scarring was a big problem. I used borage oil (from the health food store) applied with a q-tip, then Balmex twice a day and it is the only remedy I've found that works and doesn't sting his extremely-sensitive skin.

              Other ointments either have strong, unpleasant odors or need to be worked in (which hurts). My sons Doctor gave me some samples of this and it is the best I've tried. My sons rash cleared up by the next day and it spread on his bottom very easily.

              I have been using Balmex Clear Ointment since my son was a newborn, and now I am hooked, no other product compares. This ointment is light, effective, and easy for use with every diaper change. The only downside is that it is kind of hard to find, only certain stores carry it.

              This product is amazing! In addition to a great diaper cream, I use it on my daughter's knee scapes, and they vanish overnight. We call it the "magic cream".
