Calmoseptine Diaper rash Ointment 2.5 Oz
Works ok but has too many draw backs to make it something I’ll reorder
This is by far the thickest cream of its kind that I’ve come across. I’ve often used the other similar creams, Sudocrem, Zincofax, and half a dozen others. The Sudocrem is thicker than the rest but nowhere near this stuff. Why is this important, because its difficult to apply due to how thick and sticky it is. It does not spread around easy, you sort of drag it around and when it heats up some it does become softer but still not enough to make applying it easy. I’m using it on myself, colon cancer ended up with the removal of the colon and I didn’t want an ostomy. Due to this I have frequent bowel movements which requires the application of a barrier cream. I can’t imagine it would be any easier applying it to a baby’s bottom.
The other thing you need to know is that the cream does leave a very strong cooling effect. It was a bit of a surprise on the first application. As an adult I can now handle this easy enough but I have to wonder how a baby will react. I can see a good percentage of baby’s finding this odd sensation a cause for crying.
Cost wise, for the quantity you get this isn’t a great deal, especially since so much of it ends up remaining on the application tissue, in other words a lot gets wasted.
Once done I’m going back to Sudocrem or Zincofax.
