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.

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

I love the Desitin brand. I know a few people who don't like it because of the strong smell, but it honestly is the best product out there for diaper rash. And my son's comfort is much more important to me than an unscented product. We were using the Creamy Desitin until my son [*]ed in his diaper overnight and woke up with the worst diaper rash I have seen on him yet. It looked red, raw and he was screaming with discomfort. I switched to the Original Desitin and will never go back. It creates such a good barrier that I never worry about another diaper rash.

Our son never had issues with diaper rash, but as he eats more new foods, we are seeing more irritation. If we use anything else, it doesn't really help. Desitin is the best.

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

My doctor recommends this and it truly works. Compare the Zinc oxide to any other (it has 40%). It gets rid of the rash within 24 hrs. Keep using it to keep rashes away. Only get the original max - the creamy has less zinc.

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

    Have tried others, even the newer creamy ointment of the same name, but have gone back to this because it works the best on sensitive skin and clears up diaper rash and irritation rapidly, doesn't burn and is easy to apply. Can get on clothing and furniture and hard to remove, so need to take care when applying.

      The only "con" is that it bleach clothing if you accidentally get it on a spot. But, it has saved my daughter from extreme discomfort. No other products works as well and it is not necessary to apply anything else. The original formula has more zinc oxide than the creamy and it works much more effectively.

      Disgusting, Overwhelming Smell

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

          This product smells so disgusting that I had to get a soapy washcloth to wipe it all off. Then, I had to throw both the washcloth and the dry towel into the laundry because the smell on those was so pungent. I threw the Desitin tube out in the outside garbage can so the smell wouldn't seep out into my house.
          Your baby can't complain about such a thing - why would anyone inflict that on a tiny nose?
