This is not the product I use every single day. Purple Desitin, as the friend that recommended it calls it, is the "big guns" you pull out when baby gets a diaper rash that you just can't kick. For when rash just begins to show up i use boudreauxs. This is what you use When baby is on anabiotic's and has horrible diarrhea and nothing you do can keep those red patches at bay. It has a very strong smell to it but it works. I always use it when baby sick along with play in the bathtub or the baby pool without a diaper. Air, water, and purple Desitin gets rid of any rash my baby gets.
I am a little overweight and I sweat a great deal. I have tried many creams to stop me from getting rashes in various places that rub together and cause friction. I applied the cream to the affected area and it was so thick but after a couple of uses the rash started getting better. I guess the thickness of the cream is why it works. The sweat keeps the moisture from causing me to chafe.
God Bless Desitin and whoever invented this product! We use this on our 13 year old handicapped child. She is clearly still in a diaper/briefs and there is no skin breakdown! Ever! We use ALOT of this product during a diaper change! My daughter does not skimp when using this thicker Desitin. But I feel ever pleased that I don't have to worry about diaper rash or skin breakdown. It is not cheap to keep this always in stock. But it does what you need it to do! Period!! One less worry in life..
This stuff works! At the first sign of a diaper rash, clean the skin, dab it dry, and apply a thick coat of this. I don't know how the magic works, but it always works. By the next diaper change, the skin is clear again. Every single time, it's amazing. Even the blue one (lower percentage of zinc oxide) works really well, but this purple one is even better. This stuff lasts a long time too. Before this tube arrived, I've been using a left over tube from my older child on the baby, it's at least a couple of years old and probably expired, but worked just as well!
I really wanted this to be the answer to my diaper rash prayers, but unfortunately, it is not. This product might be good if your baby doesn't have a severe, raw rash like mine. I've been using it for a week with every diaper change and it hasn't cleared up yet so I'm going to have to try another brand. The cream comes out the tube thick, but because it contains oils, it can somewhat "melt" off your finger if you don't apply it quickly. It has a smell to it, but it's not as bad as the generic store brand cream that I've tried before. Of the diaper creams on the market, this one is more budget- friendly. It's just too bad it didn't work for my baby.
A must have for horse owners with pink noses! My new horse has a pink nose and had a severe sunburn in just a week. Friend recommended I try Desitin and in 10 days his sunburn cleared up. I not put it on his nose 3-4 times a week to prevent sunburn and have had zero sunburns since! Strongly recommended!!!
Arrived fast and worked great. My daughter is teething terrible and suffering through a bad case of diaper rash. Tried my essential oils but they weren't doing the trick so I tried an organic cream and it made it worse. A few diaper changes with desitin and her rash healed right up.
