When my kids had diaper rash, I didn't want to use chemicals or anything harsh on my babies' skin. Burt's Bees Baby Bee Diaper Ointment promised to be a great solution. I was pleasantly surprised at how quickly and effectively Burt's Bees Baby Bee Diaper Ointment took care of diaper rash- even the most severe ones. The tube is no longer in metal as it was when I first started using it, but now it is in plastic tubes and made from different ingredients, but still pretty effective. Performance Not only does Burt's Bees Baby Bee Diaper Ointment soothe and heal diaper rash quickly, it also works on prickly heat, and on adult chafing, especially in the summer. I always keep a tube of Burt's Bees Baby Bee Diaper Ointment in our house for the entire family to use. Any form of rashes or chafing are greatly helped with this ointment not just for diaper rash. I found that in diaper rash it only took a day or two of this ointment before it would kick in and the skin would return to normal. Only on a few occasions did I find it to take a few more days but never more than a week. I have used Burt's Bees Baby Bee for everything from summer chafing for men in the family to female rawness as well. I have also used it for the underwire area on bras when some chafing happens from heat and perspiration. It works beautifully!
