This may not be what most of you want to read, but if it helps just a few of you, it's worth it.

I'm a 60-something grandfather, haven't had to deal much with diaper rash for quite some time. But last spring I developed the most stubborn case of, uh, well, jock itch that I've ever had. I tried one antifungal powder, cream, spray, whatever after another; I even got some prescription medications. Everything seemed to clear up the rash just fine until the day after I stopped using it; then the rash would back in full bloom. A couple of months ago, I read an Amazon review by someone who had cured their jock itch with this stuff. Figuring I had nothing to lose, I tried it, and, after a month, voila! rash was gone, and six weeks later, it hasn't returned. I recommend using the maximum strength, 40% zinc oxide, version. And if it works for you like it did for me, let someone know!

2oz is the perfect size for my diaper bag. We buy the bigger 4 oz tubes locally but needed travel size. We have only gone through two large tubes so far and my baby is almost 7 months. She would get baddddd diaper rash as a newborn. We used Destin (every color you can imagine) and Aquaphor with every diaper change but it didn't work.

I was at CVS desperately reading ingredients on different products. This Butt Paste (red kind) had the most active ingredient (40% zinc oxide)! It also had the least number of total ingredients. It was by luck that I found it. It was the last one on the very lowest shelf. This is all we use ever since.

If baby is a little red, we apply to her butt and bits and she isnt red the next diaper change. Most of it wipes into the diaper as she wears it, but a tiny bit gets caught in the folds. It easily wipes the next diaper change and I never reapply.

Don't get it on clothes or sheets. Just put a little bit on your finger, apply, and wipe your finger clean on the inside of the diaper. No need for butt spatulas.

From left to right, I have the 2 oz cardboard box, the 2 oz bottle, and the 4 oz bottle. That's a measuring tape in inches to help you compare sizes.

Let me know if I left anything out.

Ok, so that title might sound a little gross, but we've been using this for my dad who's in his 80s and unfortunately isn't as mobile as he used to be. The nurse noticed that on my dad's posterior the skin was showing signs of breaking down. To keep things from developing into full on bed sores dad had to do a combination of standing more (which is difficult for him) as well as apply an ointment to the effected area. This was the ointment we used. It started helping him on day 1. The name Butt Paste also made my dad chuckle which made him less reluctant to use something for babies.

I purchased this to use as deodorant. I use a pea size amount for each underarm. It works so well it’s scary. But what isn’t scary is the ingredients and lesser risk of breast cancer. This tube will last me a helluva long time and it is more or less sport-proof. I cannot typically sweat through it (it’s a strong barrier), but if I do there is no smell. Even though I’m a woman I get very distinct body odor smell from my armpit and this has solved that problem.

An unforseeb benefit is the skin of my armpits are slowly going back to a normal, lighter color (not bc of the white of the zinc oxide, the skin looks more normal even when I have scrubbed this stuff off in the shower). Over the course of around two weeks I would say my armpits color is slowly improving.

Did not have a smooth creamy consistency, felt “grainy” so I was afraid to put this on my baby. I went to target and bought the exact same kind and the consistency was like day and night with amazon one being grainy and the target bought being smooth as it should.

In the past I've only used desitin so this is my first time using this brand. Purchased this based on the reviews. After learning the hard way with my first, with my 2nd I now apply diaper rash cream with every diaper change to prevent rash and chafing. This cream I like because its a large amount which is good considering how much you need for a baby and usually they only sell those tubes. The lid flips open which is nice. It does have a slightly medicinal smell. The consistency is thicker than any other cream I've used. No rash and its been about a week of use. I've posted a picture to show the difference in the consistency between the Boudreaux and Desitin brand.

My newborn has had a rash since he was a week old and I started trying everything; a+d, desitin blue and purple, baby powder, you name it. By the time I tried all those the rash has gotten worse. His skin was whitish with open blisters and he was bleeding from them. I ditched the wipes thinking it was that and was making trips to the bathroom to wash with plain water every diaper change, imagine my odyssey. That didn't work either so I started blow drying his little butt since air drying was not an option and went back to use desitin and although his skin was not whitish the blisters were still there until I found Boudreaux. That has been a butt saver! Lol. My baby has been dry and rash free ever since. This one is actually the second one I bought and I'm hooked.

I'm allergic to fire ants but live in the south where they are everywhere. When I get bit the ant bites form an ulcer that oozes and weeps for a couple months. This stuff dries them right up and allows the bites to heal in a couple weeks. It's visible when applied but it is the best stuff I've ever tried for clearing up ant bites.

I switched to Boudreaux’s butt paste from the desitin maximum strength tub because this was the only tub of diaper paste with 40% zinc oxide left on the market. The texture was fine, but Peruvian balsam (aka balsam of Peru) is a common allergen. My daughter developed allergic contact dermatitis after using this product. She did not have any allergies before using this product. She became sensitized by putting the cream on while she had diaper dermatitis. I have switched back to desitin maximum strength, which only comes in smaller tubes.

This stuff is lifesaving. It isn't worth getting anything less than 40% zinc oxide. We used this on our toddler for 2 12 hour road trips. Before she ended up with a terrible rash turned yeast infection. With this Butt Paste, she was perfectly fine. Tip: save yourself the $6+ and don't buy the little spatulas they sell online or in the baby section. Just go to Walmart or a dollar store and find a cheap tiny spatula for a dollar. We got 5 for less than $3 at Walmart. The spatulas make it super easy to get the paste everywhere you need without causing a mess.
