Desitin Warnings And Recalls
Dependent on cause: Desitin (zinc oxide diaper cream) is essentially a skin protectant used to treat or prevent skin breakdown from irritants like urine in sensitive areas. Desitin (zinc oxide diaper cream) is great for treating mild diaper rash to other skin fold, moisture-related problems. If you are treating regular diaper rash and it is mild, expect it to take 2-3 days to settle down. If it is more severe and tender, it can take up to a week to finally quiet dow.
Skin irritation: This non prescription cream helps moisturizer and decrease inflammation. One should see a change in 2 or 3 days.
I often tell patient: To use Destine for all ages as it is very safe for raw irritated skin in going or between buttocks.
Crisco: It makes for a great thick barrier on the skin. Preferred " ointment" by many moms I know.
We ran out of desitin (zinc oxide diaper cream) for my baby, is there anything else I can use for one day?
Vaseline: Vaseline or petroleum jelly is fine for a day or two. Also a and d ointment.
OK: Desitin (zinc oxide diaper cream) is a barrier cream (zinc oxide) and Nystop is a anti-fungal powder. For anti-fungals to work they need to be placed on the skin directly --as you have done. The desitin (zinc oxide diaper cream) will just 'seal out moisture' --so not a bad idea.See 1 more doctor answer
Desiten: Desiten is a baby ointment for diaper rash. I don't think it would hurt you but it's probably too greasy for your face.
Yes you can: More important though is to keep the skin dry and clean as much as you can
Meds: You should see your dermatologist to get the best treatment.
Yes: Yes, desiring is a moisture barrier. Another inexpensive product you might try (another soothing moisture barrier used by adults) is calmoseptine, which is available over the counter as well.
No: Zinc oxide is a topical cream used for barrier protection ie. Diaper rash: desitin (zinc oxide diaper cream) creates a barrier for the skin against contact with feces/urine to prevent irritation). A PPD allergy is a systemic reaction after being exposed to the injection your immune system develops a response that a topical cream like zinc oxide will not be useful
Can 3 week old healthy baby use a+d diaper ointment at moms house & desitin (zinc oxide diaper cream) paste at dads house?
No problem: Both work equally well for diaper rash.
16month son has had pink rash on armpits/crotch for 4 days. Nothing is helping (cortisone/desitin) no fever and doesn't seem to itch.?
