When it comes to diaper rashes my kids get it the worst. I don’t know why that is, maybe just really sensitive skin. It doesn’t seem to matter how often I change them, if I change their diets, or use sensitive wipes.
However, this has led me to try out many, many different types of diaper rash creams. Below is a list of the ones I have used.
I must first mention the last on my list. It is a little on the expensive side but is totally worth it. Penaten is my newest discovery. I cannot say that it is my favorite yet but it is definitely moving up. It is extremely thick and has a high zinc oxide content which helps heal really quickly. It has been working really well this week and I plan to keep using it because it is clearing up my daughter’s rash that nothing else has worked on.
My favorite of the list is Desitin’s overnight relief. For the most part it takes away the rash by the next morning. For very bad rashes it may take two or three days though. I also like this one because it is the most creamy and my daughter seems soothed by it. This was my mother’s choice for diaper rash creams so I guess the saying “mother knows best” is sometimes right. Thanks mom.
The second on my list is Triple Paste. This one works well enough. However, the reason I put it second is because it comes with a money back guarantee and we can all use a guarantee.
Balmex, Butt Paste, and A&D all worked well but with no amazing distinction to note.
Finally, Aquaphore. I love this product as a healing product. I don’t use it on the actual rashes. I use it during changes to make them water proof and prevent irritation before it happens. This product is also great because it can be used for dry lips, hands and many other irritations.
