i want to add to this..desitin is a NO in my house. my son would sometimes cry out more when i put it on him. one day, i had diarrhea..and my butt was getting raw from constant bathroom usage..i tried it out..and i knew then why he would cry more, and lose his breathe..cause it burnt my ass up.. i scrubbed and scrubbed that shit off.. i immediately thru out all tubes of it in my house.. even brand new ones.. i use A&D sometimes, but mostly resinol (you ask for it at the pharmacy)...I now test everything on myself.
i guess it is different with everyone. my daughter never really had bad diaper rash either and when i put some on last night she only fussed because i was fussing with her. no crying, nothing, and it worked. i was given several suggestions for her face and i had the desitin on hand and nothing else.
