This is the greatest thing since sliced bread!!Desitin is a great medicine for diaper rash but is usually hard to get off in between diaper changes. The A & D ointment is great for really curing and protecting from making the rash worse so what better combination. It goes on easy and my baby has instant relief and by the next change it has cleared up drastically.
Honestly my mom has mixed these two on her own for over 20 years so it is awesome you can find them premixed now.

I wish they still had this in the stores. This is better than petroleum jelly. It's great to use as a protective barrier when going to the pool, beach. It is good on sensitive skin too and isn't oily.

I feel that this product works well, however I do not like the texture what so ever. It is overly messy to apply and doesn't come off your fingers quite as easily as the white desitin does. Would recommend for effectiveness though.

This product works well in clearing up diaper rash. We have used it on our son's bum. It is worth the price and I recommend people trying it.

This is a great product. Prevents diaper rash and when my daughter does get a little rash this gets rid of it within a few hours.
