Worked for my little one's very persistant rash, when nothing else would
on November 15, 2010
My 7 week old suffered from a very persistent diaper rash for almost 3 weeks. I tried pretty much everything under the sun to rid him of this: Four different diaper brands, different diaper wipes, I tried using washcloths with water (plus/minus baby wash), different Zinc Oxide creams (Boudreaux's Butt Paste as well as "Penaten", which is my usual "go-to diaper rash miracle")- to no avail. Finally I saw Boudreaux's Rash Protector and decided to give that a try, though I didn't have much hope this would work. After using it for two days (a small amount with every diaper change), the rash was gone, and I a believer.
This product is actually intended to be used to prevent diaper rashes, obviously it can help treat them too... It has a very liquidy (though still somewhat oily) consistency (it reminds me a little of "Moroccan Oil"), and for first time users, I would recommend putting it on your finger and then applying to your baby's bottom - otherwise you tend to get too much on there. A little of this will go a long way...
The active ingredient is Dimethicone, a silicone based polymer, FDA approved as a skin protectant (I just checked: also a main ingredient in "Moroccan Oil", maybe hence the similar consistency). Other ingredients include Aloe Oil Extract, Caprilic Triglyceride, Mineral Oil, Peruvian Balsam Oil, Shea Liquid and Vit E.
In summary: After my usual go-to diaper treatments and changing of diapering products didn't work for my little one's diaper rash, I decided to try "Boudreaux's Rash Protector", sort of as a desperate measure. It worked. I've been using this as a preventative measure when I anticipate longer intervals between diaper changes (e.g. at night or when going on a trip) ever since, and my little one has not had another diaper rash since. I'm glad I found this !
