I have tried a lot of different diaper rash creams, some of them were rather expensive, but I found this always works the best. I don't love how much it sticks to your hands when you apply it, but I think that is what makes it work so well.see moreof the reviewer's review

When we had our first we planned only on using "natural" products for his little afflictions, but in all honesty...this stuff just gets the job done. We used a natural type of diaper cream and it took days to get it down to a dull roar. I feel like this product took a few hours, tops.

I love Desitin. I have a three year old and every now she tends to get rashes on her bottom. The maximum strength is so thick that it will stay put even when exposed to moisture. I would definitely recommend this product.see moreof the reviewer's review

My daughter had a moderate diaper rash so I bought Desitin maximum strength on my friend's recommendation but it only made things worse. It is not thick enough to stick on the raw irritated skin even though I applied thick layer as it was instructed on the package. I'm really disappointed.
