Read This: Purple Desitin + Antifungal cures all
Here is the best advice I can give to someone who cares for a baby with diaper rash:
Get "Purple Desitin" and Clotrimazole cream. My oldest child had horrible rashes that didn't heal. They should tell every new parent in the hospital that any diaper rash that lasts for 2 days or more has almost certainly turned FUNGAL.
To heal a bad diaper rash that persists, you need to do these 3 things:
1) Help the skin heal
2) protect the skin from further exposure to irritants
3) Kill the fungal infection
Nothing does #1 & #2 better than purple desitin. But the only thing that does #3 is an antifungal cream like Clotrimazole. My oldest child was almost a year old before I learned this. Once I did, my default diaper-rash treatment has been purple desitin + clotrimazole cream. Never had a diaper rash last more than 2 days since. Ask your pediatrician about this. I still don't know why it's not more well known.

Great and fast acting. I try to be holistic in my approach but know that sometimes, my baby's diaper rash needs extra help and immediate action. Enter this product. I use it with my breastmilk. While changing my LO, I pour some freshly expressed breastmilk (not refrigerated but room temperature) and let it dry a little bit then put some desitin (a little goes A LOOOOONG WAY!) and let it dry a little and viola! By the next diaper change, the rash is significantly less and completely gone by the next 2-3 diaper change. Also, this cream is so thick so really put very little on your finger first and add more as you go.

Effective and Affordable Diaper Rash Cream
We only use Desitin now. My little one has sensitive skin and seems to always have some type of diaper rash irritation. Beside prescription ointments, we use Desitin. Since bringing my child home from the hospital, we have tried many different diaper rash creams (Burt's Bees, Butt Paste, Medline Remedy) but keep coming back to Desitin because it works the best for him. We highly recommend this product!

Best baby rash ointment! When I first brought home my baby boy, he had gotten a diaper rash. While his skin was adjusting to his new environment, we went through a bunch of this ointment. It cleared his skin right up! I then used it to protect his little behind. Now I use it as needed. Great product. Worth every penny.

My favorite diaper cream--works for nasty rashes!
I'm not normally one who is beholden to name brands, however, Desitin makes it absolutely worthwhile! This maximum strength version clears my daughter's diaper rashes the fastest. I also like how the cream is thick, but not difficult to apply. It keeps the moisture off her bum really well.

The only diaper cream that works
This stuff clears up diaper rash in one change. Stings a little going on sometimes but as soon as it's on you can tell he feels relief. The only thing that actually works for us. The others just cover up the problem, this heals the inflammation.

Have a horse with a pink nose? Use this!
A must have for horse owners with pink noses! My new horse has a pink nose and had a severe sunburn in just a week. Friend recommended I try Desitin and in 10 days his sunburn cleared up. I not put it on his nose 3-4 times a week to prevent sunburn and have had zero sunburns since! Strongly recommended!!!

Great Product, Great Price!
Desitin is a staple at my house with my two great-grandchildren! Works great and the price is fantastic! Better than most more expensive brands!

I use this extra strength cream on my baby at night, when she spends more time with the same diaper. Also, I use it if I she she is a bit red in some areas and the relief is quick.
