  • Definitely a must have! I like the texture of this ointment it is thick and a little goes along way. This helps soothe and clear up redness within hours. I keep one in the diaper bag & one at home! Aug 22, 2021

  • tried and true. Used it on both of my kids and it nips a diaper rash in the bud very quickly. Aug 11, 2021

  • It works but it stinks! I recomend the one with the blue lable i believe its rapid strength works just as great without the smell Jun 24, 2021

  • Man this stuff is sticky. So thick. I know it's tried and true for some reason, but I'm personally not a fan. Jun 03, 2021

  • I didn't like this brand - the past was way too thick and never cleared up diaper rash. Preferred to use Aquaphor more. May 10, 2021

  • Always in my diaper for my NAS foster babies Apr 29, 2021

  • FAVORITE hands down!! We have a tube in almost every room :) Feb 24, 2021

  • Love this paste! It's easy to apply and gets rid of any nasty rash (diaper rash, neck rash, armpit rash) in just one day. My must have in diaper caddy! Jan 22, 2021

    It never helped my sons rashes, but he never got too many rashes in the first place. Sep 25, 2020

    I am not a big fan of the way this diaper rash cream worked on my son. It takes longer to work than other butt creams. Sep 22, 2020

  • Worked wonders in my daughter rash cleared it up right away! Sep 10, 2020

  • The only diaper cream that worked for a moderate to severe diaper rash! We tried so many creams and this is the only one that kept her rash at bay. We still use for nighttime changes to keep rash away Aug 19, 2020

  • Works so well for clearing up bottom rashes Aug 13, 2020

  • This worked okay but definitely wasn’t maximum strength. The smell is also not very pleasant. I will keep looking for a different diaper rash cream. Aug 05, 2020

    Helped my baby with a skin rash in her arm. Aug 05, 2020

  • This stuff smells awful, and it did nothing for my daughters rash. Keep in mind though, all babes are different Jun 29, 2020

  • I always have this in the diaper bag, but I honestly prefer other brands. It does work, but I like the consistency of other brands. Jun 18, 2020

    This is the only kind that worked for my kids! I would buy this in bulk! Jun 10, 2020

  • Baby has a diaper rash? This will work so quickly. Apply just a thin layer as needed. This cream is best when used as soon as a rash begins to develop. I sometimes even use it for rash prevention. Apr 30, 2020

  • Works great for minor rashes Apr 16, 2020

  • Works great! Helps heal and soothe right away. Apr 02, 2020

  • As for my little one, it wasn’t a very good cream. Too harsh on the skin and sometimes irritated even more...this all depends on your child’s skin though! Feb 10, 2020

  • A must to have on hand for bad diaper rash. Usually i prefer just vaseline, but sometimes that's not enough. Feb 06, 2020

  • Gods gift to babies. Feb 03, 2020

    This is what we use when our soon gets bad diaper rash. It works great and usually gets rid of the diaper rash in a day or so. Jan 31, 2020

  • We keep it in the diaper bag to use when baby has a bad diaper rash and it works great. Otherwise we use the blue one. Jan 31, 2020

  • This is my go to for any redness on my child’s bottom. I’ve used this on all my kid’s for the past five years and my mom used to use it on. Jan 26, 2020
