    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
