Zinc Oxide Cream Boots
Cheap Zinc Oxide: Generic OTC zinc oxide at any pharmacy will wok for you.
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.

Painful haemorrhoid 8 days ago after 3 days loose BMs. Warm baths 4 times per day + OTC cream (Zinc Oxide) all ineffective. Would HC cream work?
Yes: Hi Sorry to hear you've been suffering from such severe hemorrhoids. Yes, hydrocortisone cream may be helpful to try and you can get it over the counter. If it still hurts, it may be worthwhile to schedule an appointment with a general surgeon to take a look and see if you could benefit from a procedure to remove them. Hope you feel better soonSee 1 more doctor answer
3mo old baby's diaper last changed at 8:30p. Dad and I didn't want to wake her up for a change as she mostly sleeps through the night. She woke up at 6:30a. We use 40% Zinc Oxide diaper cream. Harm?
Yes you can: More important though is to keep the skin dry and clean as much as you can
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
