There is no better diaper cream. Desitin is the best out there!
I have tried them all. It works for my baby with sensitive skin.
It also does wonders to help heal sore adults after colonoscopy
preps and bouts with stomach distress. It works very quickly and easily. The only advice I would give is don't leave it in a hot
car or room - it melts easily and is not a quick clean up when
it does.

This product works to clear up the rashes and I would give it a five stars if the ingredients were different. The Original Desitin formula contains TALC. The Creamy Desitin version does not contain talc at all, I don't know why the difference in the two products. If you are ingredient conscious, like myself, I highly recommend the California Baby ointment, which goes on like the Desitin Creamy, or the Weleda Cream, which is more like the Original Desitin. Both products work fantastically and I am able to rotate them according to my son's needs.

    Comments about Desitin Diaper Rash Paste, Maximum Strength Original Paste, 16 oz:

    I use this product on my twins and it clears up a diaper rash almost immediately. I will apply it to the rash and the next diaper change you can tell a difference. If I apply it at bedtime in the morning the rash is completely gone. I love that it has extra zinc oxide that is the main ingredient that does the trick! Can't be without this stuff because it keeps my little bottoms happy! :)

    Comments about Desitin Diaper Rash Paste, Maximum Strength Original Paste, 16 oz:

    I switched to max strength Desitin from Butt Paste because if has more zinc & my daughter needed all the help she could get. Her poor lil butt was getting horrendous painful diaper rash almost instantly after she pooped. It does work well, but I hate the smell & once you get some of this on your clothes, its not going aways till you launder them.

      My son got diaper rash when the nurses at a hospital didnt take care of my son well. Luckily I ordered this product few weeks back and I used it when I saw the rash. Rash went off by 3 day. Very effective. Highly recommend.

        My kids have tender skin, and we use this at every diaper change. It can be messy, especially when the kid starts squirming, but it is much better than facing diaper rash.

        I got this stuff for my daughter's bad rash. It works and did help clear it up. However, it has COD LIVER OIL in it! They add fragrance to try to mask the fish odor but I hate fish and I can still detect it. The tube says "pleasantly scented" They tried but it still stinks. It even left a load of her baby clothes with a fish odor. I only use this now for a bad case, not everyday use. Even then, use this cream when you plan on staying home and putting your child in clothes you don't mind getting tainted with smell.

          We tried every natural/organic cream on the market that are highly recommended but nothing beat this one in treating & preventing diaper rash!

              Very safe, effective, fast relief and healing of not only diaper rash, but any mild skin abrasion, even hemorrhoids. One of its natural ingredients, cod liver oil, is the key to fast relief and healing, even better than zinc oxide. This preparation does not have a disagreeable or "baby" odor either; good stuff!.
