It’s a cream. For diaper rash — one wants a barrier…
… the best barrier (from urine, feces) is air — if possible, leave diapers off as much as possible. But if diapers are needed, then the best barrier is an ointment, not a cream. Desitin remains the best choice out there. Plain, generic zinc oxide is much, much less expensive but it is not as smooth as Desitin when applying.
Updating again…Diaper Rash Cream
Reasonably priced and effective, CeraVe is a respected name in skin care.Unfortunately, I have been going back and forth with my review of this product. Vine reviews are to be completed in a thirty day time period. But, I was not about to try anthing new on our baby until I had ‘tested the waters’ personally and researched as well.Ceramides: It appears to be a proven product and that in fact, babies are protected via their natural birth coating with ‘ceramides.’Dimethicone: In limited usage, it can relieve skin irritations quite effectively and based upon research thus far, not a hazard.Zinc oxide: Highly rated creams have up to 40% of this effective long term solution to treating diaper rash…what remains to be determined…do the ceramides in this product eliminate the necessity for so much zinc oxide?Did try the CeraVe diaper rash cream on our adult family member’s skin complaints and it did relieve and help.Most recently tried it on another adult who had teary eyes due to allergy causing irritation on the skin UNDER the eye, NOT IN THE EYE. The CeraVe Diaper Rash Cream relieved the irritation. In both cases, repeated application was necessary.Ultimately tried for diaper rash issues…seemed to burn and was not effective. Creams with 40% zinc oxide performed the best.
Leaves skin clean, smooth and without drying it out!
This baby wash is wonderful! It is smooth and "lotiony" when you put it on and lathers just a little bit without getting bubbles all over. Despite the lotion feel, it rinses off easily. It leaves your skin (an baby’s skin) smooth without drying it out like some baby washes and soaps tend to do. It’s kind of like Dove for babies!
