With the summer heat still going strong here in Maryland, I still have to keep a look out for diaper rash. Elijah gets heat rash in his diaper area really easily after only being outside playing for an hour! What isn't exactly easy with Elijah is getting rid of any diaper rashes. He has eczema and really dry skin and it seems to take forever to clear anything up.
A few months ago I switched to Boudreaux's Butt Paste diaper cream on Elijah and have had a very positive experience with it since. I had never used it before, and hadn't really heard other opinions on it, so I wasn't sure what to expect. Boudreaux's Butt Paste is diaper rash ointment and skin protectant. It helps to prevent diaper rash, protects chafed skin, and seals out wetness. Boudreaux's is a white cream, it's a bit more liquid than some of the comparable creams which helps it to spreads on easily and cleans off quickly. The scent is not bad and sort of mild. You can get Boudreaux's Butt Paste in convenient foil packs which are great for traveling or sticking the diaper bag, 1oz, 2oz, 3oz, 4 oz tubes and 16oz jar. It's also nice that the tubes have a flip top cap, not a screw cap you have to fumble to remove. It is available in drug, discount and grocery store chains. While shopping I have seen it at Target, Walmart, Babies & Toys'R'Us and even Wegman's grocery store, so I don't think you will have a hard time finding it.
A few months ago Elijah had a slight bit of rash after running around and playing outside with me on a warm day. When we came in from outside he took a bath and then I applied the creme to the reddened area while re-diapering him. I realized later I probably should have applied it before we went outside and he ran around sweating. By the next diaper change, about 2 hours later, the rash was less red already. By bath time the next night it was very faint, and by bath the next night it was completely gone. I applied a thin coat to the rash at every diaper change and that along with a thorough bath everyday using hypoallergenic soap, it cleared up the fastest I have ever seen.
Another helpful tip I discovered accidentally while using it is that it also takes the itch off of insect bites! I had a small mosquito bite on my hand and had gotten a dab on it, it instantly soothed the itching and helped reduce the redness and swelling! I have been using it on bug bites ever since!
I switched Elijah to Boudreaux's Butt Paste and have already bought another tube! I highly recommend it!
