My younger daughter had very sensitive skin and came home from the hospital with a diaper rash. Luckily, I was given a sample of Desitin (original). I found it to be the best for healing and preventing diaper rash. I used it consistently, and it always worked. The only con I listed is that this cream is hard to remove from one's hands; however, that is really a "pro," as it shows how well it resists wetness. When my grandson was born a couple of years ago, Desitin Creamy was more available than the original form, and my daughter received some in her baby shower. However, it did not work well at all, as it did not stay on long enough to heal or prevent rash. I found some of the original Desitin for my daughter to use, and she is still using that form of Desitin. She requested it for a Christmas stocking stuffer for her son this year, and I made sure to fulfill her wishes.

I really wanted to like this because of its 40% zinc oxide content. However, the odor of the Cod Liver Oil is incredibly unpleasant and made me gag. This is especially disappointing because the list of ingredients still includes 'fragrance', so it has a bad fishy smell plus potentially irritating perfume. If, like me, you only want a baby ointment for prevention of rashes, you may want to steer clear of this one.

        I use it for diaper rashes, it is good for other kinds of rashes too, ask your doctor about this product for other rashes and go by his or her advice. No cons. I would highly recommend this product.

          Comments about Desitin Diaper Rash Maximum Strength Original Paste, 4 oz:

          I tend to be a momma that prefers to go the natural route with pretty much everything with my baby girl, but if/when she gets a diaper rash, Desitin, Maximum Strength is the ONLY thing that helps it. I feel like I have tried everything. I hated to break down and use Desitin, but my poor baby's bottom. It works great!

                Comments about Desitin Diaper Rash Maximum Strength Original Paste, 4 oz:

                Desitin is the best rash and irritation creme on the market. I don't even have children - I am a distance runner and use it on clothing lines to prevent and treat chaffing from sweaty fabric rubbing against damp skin for hours. This stuff works miracles and I completely understand why it is Mom's choice for diapers.

                CONS - must apply with an applicator (toilet paper etc), because it won't readily wash off your fingers.

                        This is, by far, better than any other diaper rash cream including the creamy kinds. In one diaper change we noticed a significant improvement on our babies rash. Thank you, Desitin!!
