If I had to make a list of my top ten essential baby products, Desitin would be near the top of the list.  This stuff really works!

My first baby was a pooping machine.  He was always nursing, and always pooping (often simultaneously).  With so many diaper changes, we had to be careful about diaper rash.  We eventually learned three things: 1) to use wet cotton cosmetic pads instead of pre-moistened wipes, 2) to let the bottom air-dry as much as possible, and 3) to apply a thick coat of Desitin after every diaper change.  If there was any sign of redness or irritation, the Desitin cleared it up like magic.

We tried a few other brands (A&D and Balmex, among others), but nothing worked as well as Desitin, and it has to be the ORIGINAL Desitin.  Desitin Creamy has a much nicer smell, but it doesn't seem to work as well as the original.  I'm willing to put up with the slighty yucky smell for something that keeps my baby's bottom happy.

My 2nd and 3rd kids never had to experience diaper rash since we learned from our experience with the first baby.  We made sure we had a jar of Desitin ready.  The jar may seem a bit pricey, but it lasts a long time and is really worth it.  I like this product so much that I often give it to new moms.

I think that this stuff is the best when it comes to getting rid of diaper rash for your child. My son has always had problems with disper rash since the day that he was born and this seems to be the only thing that would work for him. This stuff can be very costly especially if you go through it as much as I do. I think that they could do something about the bad odor of it because that smell is something that I can't even explain. You can smell it on my son especially when people tend to put too much desitin on him. It is kind of gross. I think that desitin helps the redness go away in a matter of hours. I love how desitin is thikc because I think that it helps it stay on the child's skin and doesn't end up just on the diaper. Desitin gets the job done and I will use no other disper rash cream. I have bought it in the tub like the picture shown and I will never do that again because that thing turns out to be way too messing for me. I will stick to the tubes thanks!!

The Easy Way to Use Desitin

By 

from USA

Comments about Desitin Original Diaper Rash Ointment Jar, Over Night Relief:

Desitin is a trusted brand as always. Now it comes in an easy access jar. Much better and much more efficient. Since a little goes a long way, the tub of ointment lasts a few months. The one thing I do not like is the scent of the Desitin. Its obvious they tried to make it smell fresh but it just smells strange and does not mix well with a full diaper. It is enough to make you gag.

Performance
It works great. A little goes a long way. I would say it heals within the day it is used. If not that quick, it should only take a bit longer. Maybe two days for bad rashes. My parents used it and so do many others. Desitin is definitely the best choice for diaper rash. But do not use too much or you will suffocate the skin which does nothing but worsen a rash. Use this ointment sparingly.

YES!!

Comments about Desitin Original Diaper Rash Ointment Jar, Over Night Relief:

My children were both suffering from very bad diaper rashes courtesy of some rather terrible diapers that we had decided to try. Both of them were crying and whimpering because of the amount of pain that their rashes had caused. We had an all natural diaper rash cream but it just wasn't working. So, in a desperate situation we decided to try the Desitin Original Diaper Rash Ointment, Overnight Relief. While this wasn't a miracle product that made their rashes disappear overnight, they were definitely a bit less red the following day, and three days after the first application, the rashes were completely gone. I wouldn't recommend using this cream as part of the daily routine, but I would most definitely recommend it for the stubborn rashes that just won't go away, or for those where there is pain associated with the rash.

Did not owrk for us, very disappointed in the old standby

By 

from Odessa, TX

Comments about Desitin Original Diaper Rash Ointment Jar, Over Night Relief:

With five children, I have dealt with many rounds of diaper rash. I would love to say I love this diaper rash cream, but I don't. I have tried it with each of my children, as it is usually the number one recommended brand. It has not ever lived up to the name for me.

Performance
I have always been disappointed with this product. It is not easy to apply. When you swipe it on, you better make sure that is where you want it because if you wipe it again at all, it comes off. I had a hard time getting it to stay on my baby's skin. It was immediately wiped off by the diaper and if it is not on the skin, it can't heal the skin.

Good on mild rashes..

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments about Desitin Original Diaper Rash Ointment Jar, Over Night Relief:

I like Desitin for mild rashes because it is not greasy and has a powder like feel. But it did not work on my son when he had a rash so bad that his skin ws chapped and bleeding. Nothing worked on a rash that bad, so I had to use a medicated powder so it kept his butt dry. Desitin works on daily mild rashes but will not work if the skin is bleeding or chapped because you have to keep the area dry in order for it to heel. I will say Desitin works better than a lot of other creams because it is not overly greasy and like I sid it has a powder like effect. It also doesn't smell that bd like some creams but it is not the cheapest so it is better to find it on sale or with a coupon. I usually wouldn't get it without one.

The only Diaper Cream We use

By 

from Wentzville, MO

Comments about Desitin Original Diaper Rash Ointment Jar, Over Night Relief:

This is the only Diaper Cream allowed in my house. It is thick and creamy and goes on smooth, the Jar is good for a while. We have had ours for a year and we have 1/4 left. My daughter had lots of ear infections which means lots of antibiotics and that lead to lots of diaper rashes and this stuff cleared it up in less time than other things I have tried. If I notice her bottom getting red I throw some of this on there a couple times a day and the redness is gone. It is almost like magic. I started buying the little tubes but the jar is such a better buy and it lasts forever. I can't wait until I am out of diapers and the diaper cream is gone but then I may still keep some around because I still have to teach my kids how to wipe and sometimes they get a red bottom from not doing such a great job. It is very very thick but comes off with a wet wipe and it makes for easy cleaning. I do believe it also soothes them and helps with the pain.

works great!

By 

from Madison, WI

Comments about Desitin Original Diaper Rash Ointment Jar, Over Night Relief:

So desitin is a little bit more expensive than other diaper rash brand, but I just figured out that high quality products do worth the extra money you spend. I have read all those comments about diaper rash, and I think it would be terrible to watch my baby suffer from such things. So before my baby boy was born, I stocked a 4oz tube of desitin, and now I apply it to my baby boy's bottom every time I change diaper for him. I think the product works great!!! my baby has never developed diaper rash so far. But since my baby is still a newborn, I will closely watch his little butt and see if things continue to work fine for a longer time. Basically, I do recommend this diaper rash ointment, and I myself has already ordered a large 16oz jar to keep it in stock.

the only cons I would say is, the zinc oxide has a terrible smell, so you may not like it very much. However, I do recommend you get a diaper rash ointment with 40% zinc oxide as it is with Desitin. After all, this is the effective ingredint that keeps you muchkin's bottom dry and clean:)

Desitin Original Diaper Rash Oinment Jar, The Best in the Market

By 

from DPO, AE

Comments about Desitin Original Diaper Rash Ointment Jar, Over Night Relief:

Desitin Original Rash Oinment has been my favorite rash ointment for my kids, I have used for both of my kids since they were born and always worked excellent. Neither of my kids suffer a rash thanks to Desitin.  Whenever I saw there was going to be a rash, I applied Desitin and the next day they were like nothing happened. The jar is a perfect size!! I love the jar instead of buying the tubes every other week. The presentation in jar is great, is easy to use, stays clean and easy to put it away. I have even used Desitin when I get a little burn while cooking or ironing and has work very well too in the meantime while going to the Doctor.  Even though my kids are not newborns anymore, I still use Desitin once in a while and they like it, I always have at home a jar and replace it as soon as I see it is almost finished. Desitin Original Rash Oinment Jar is a most have at home! If you are looking for a good rash ointment, Desitin Original is the way to go.
