SUPER product, fast, effective healing&relief...great for super sensitive babies,even yeast rashes-AND best burn cream!!!
on March 1, 2015
I was a fan of Dr Smiths diaper cream for my first 4 children...THEN number 5 was born with skin so sensitive that EVERYTHING seems to irritate it(Vaseline makes this kid break out in bleeding blisters). So no more Dr Smith, but shes still a baby, she still gets diaper rash on occasion, now what? I was using coconut oil, but it didnt heal overly well, but it was something...and made me feel like I was doing SOMETHING for her instead of watching her suffer. We had tried prescription creams, they were too harsh and were often petroleum based and made her bleed, nothing worked.
I decided to give this a try, hoping it wouldnt make her rashes worse like the Dr Smiths did(imagine applying a healing cream only to make the rash 10x worse-awful feeling for mom). I was cautiously optimistic.
IT WORKS and the babies love it!!! When using Dr Smiths, my kiddos would squirm, I always assumed it was just because I was touching and rubbing a sore spot, cream or no. HOWEVER, I have now determined this to be incorrect, when using the Burts Bees diaper cream, they go still and seem to experience relief immediately...omg, what a difference!!! Not only do they experience immediate relief, the rash disappears so fast(often by the time of the next diaper change), rashes that would take 1-3days to heal with other creams were gone in a few hours!!!
It also works for my ultra sensitive skin girl, so we have switched from a 13yr loyalty to Dr Smiths and now only use burts bees diaper ointment, I would never go back to any other product!!! I use it for the 1 and 2yr olds in diapers and the 3yr old who wears pullups at night and is an occasional yeast rash sufferer.
Edit: We had a bbq this week and a flare up caused blistering burns all over my husbands face and arms. The ER was concerned with discoloration, I told him not to worry, I applied this cream to his face, neck, and arms each night and within 3days there was no more fear of discoloration, his burns were healing nicely and his face was not discolored(and it healed much faster than the 2-4wks the doctor stated).
