I love the extra strength but I wish it was smoother. It works though.

I was not satisfied with the ointment because it just made my son's rash worse. I noticed his bottom looked a little red, so I applied some of the Desitin. With his next diaper change, his bottom was bright red and he was bleeding. I used a different cream when I put him to bed, and it was almost completely gone in the morning. My son may just be allergic to an ingredient in the desitin.

Awful product, my daughter had only a few very small red spots from diaper and doctor gave me this cream to use. It created bleeding red rashes all over my baby’s skin which lasted a few days and made her cry uncontrollably every time she pooped or peed.

When I put this on my child it made it ten times worse!!! Up for hours trying to calm him down. His skin peeled off of his bottom.

Desitin(blue) and extra strength(purple) Destin work amazingly well. My 16 month old son will still get rashes sporatically and with one or two applications, it does go away. But you can't be stingy, apply a thick layer:)
