Triple Paste Medication
I have Excoriation Disorder. I am already in therapy, but I am trying to find a way to treat my 'wounds'. Would Triple Paste plus wound dressing work?
My 2 year old has a really bad daiper rash. For about 2 and 1/2 weeks. I have tried butt paste, extra strength butt paste, triple paste, baby powder, vaseline. Nothing seems to help in fact it seems to get worse. And every chance she gets she scratches it
A more specific description of the rash would be helpful.
If it's blister like or fluid filled bumps you should let your pediatrician take a look at it.
If it's red in the groin skin folds or maybe small pink/red dots then it may be yeast. In that case, try applying lotrim af 4-6 times a day. Lotrimin (clotrimazole) is an antifungal used for athletes foot treatment as well and you will find it on the foot product aisle.
If it's a beefy red color around her rectum then let your pediatrician take a look at it. ...Read more
Our 14 month old has yeast infection. We are using lotrimin (clotrimazole) and triple paste and changing diaper frequently. The back iscleared now. Any other tips?
Yeast infection: It's possible that the yeast infection is also present in the mouth. Not treating it will cause recurrent yeast infection I n the diaper area. Wash your toddler's hands frequently after crawling on the floor. Make sure nobody's fingers are inserted to his mouth. Wash/sterilize binkies/pacifiers daily (including bottle nipples). ...Read more
19 mo old w/ yeast infection for 2 wks. Tried nystatin, monistat, clotrimazole, zinc oxide, triple paste, maloxx, & no diaper. Not working, its worse.
"diaper rash": A number of conditions cause so called "diaper rash." I wonder about the duration of treatment rendered since 6 different creams, independently or in combination, have been used in 2 weeks period. If no response to Nystatin was observed in a week, the child is unlikely to have yeast infection unless immunocompromised. Seborrheic dermatitis, psoriasis, and zinc deficiency are other possibilities. ...Read more
Sargenti paste: Root canal may be able to save a tooth by replacing the pulp with a substitute material, ideally, one that is inert and easy to handle. Standard root canal uses gutta percha, a tropical tree sap. In the 1950s sargenti began filling roots with a paste that contained paraformaldehyde, which forms formaldehyde when contacted w water. The paste can damage surrounding tissues if it leaks from root. ...Read more
Of course you can.:
If you like "almond paste" there is no problem. What matters is the quantity of things you eat. I believe everything in moderation and common sense is reasonable.
Personally, I would prefer to actually eat almonds than "almond paste". ...Read more

All?: To the best of my knowledge, no toothpaste contains mercury. If you find one that lists this ingredient please post it. There must be some misunderstanding or confusion for you to think that is the case. ...Read more

However, it is not a miracle drug, nor can it overpower poor oral hygiene or the ravages of foods and liquids that promote cavities. Flouride is also a great strengthener or tooth enamel.
