My daughter has fairly normal skin, if she will go from no diaper rash at all to a terrible diaper rash within a few hours. This is the only diaper rash ointment that doesn’t burn her!

I used desitin when my son was a baby and now I use it on my granddaughters. It has worked for me everytime I had to use it. The diaper rash goes away quickly and usually does not come back. I have had no issues using this on either one of them and recommend it to all parents and grandparents.

This stuff is AMAZING!!! We've tried other products that didn't work as well for clearing my daughter's diaper rash. We used it one change and the difference was immediate. She's been teething so there's the fun that goes with teething and raw butts.. she would wake up screaming we used this once and she was able to stay asleep.

Glad my kid hasn’t had diaper rash but one time because this stuff is nasty thick and hard to spread. That said it does what it says. Just wish it wasn’t so messy.
