Triple paste: Triple paste seems to work best for diaper rashes that other creams or ointments do not help fix. Triple paste is a cream. If you are specifically looking for an ointment, then try aquaphor.

A member asked:

Is it normal for my newborn to be losing hair?

4 doctor answers4 doctors weighed in
Dr. Nanette Nuessle
Specializes in Pediatrics
Yes: Newborns lose their baby hair at about 3-4 months of age. It is replaced by thicker, coarser hair. Some infants will develop "bald spots, " where the hair growth is very thin until the new hair regrows. These spots are now more common on the back of the head in many infants due to lying them on their back to sleep, and putting them in reclining safety seats.

Should I be concerned about a bumpy crusting rash on my vagina while pregnant?

1 doctor answer3 doctors weighed in
Dr. Patrick Weix
Specializes in Obstetrics and Gynecology
Yes: This should be mentioned to the doctor at the next OB visit. It may be nothing concerning, but one possibility for a "bump" that forms a small blister that then has a crust is herpes. Other possibilities can be infected hair follicles or yeast. If it is herpes, it could change your delivery plan or require antiviral medications during pregnancy.

Check with your PCP: The risk is very low when using ketoconazole in pulsed therapy (once per week for an extended period of time). Your risk of developing a problem with any drug depends on your particular constellation of medical problems. As long as you don't have a predisposition to developing liver damage and your doctor monitors you during treatment, you should be fine. Check with your doctor.
