  1. This is a pharmacy right? What works good for diaper rash besides desitin? My daughter is 6 years old and has very sensitive skin, and after she has a bowel movement, she gets like diaper rash, desitin doesn't always work? any suggestions?

    We certainly are a Pharmacy and we specialize in compounding preparations that usually work better than any commercial product. That is why we only have a few products. If your daughter is having frequent bowel actions the bacteria in the bowel action (pooh) plus the urea in the urine (wee) combine to form ammonia over time which is why her rash is probably worst in the morning. Our product has a much more water resistant formula than Desitin so when you change the nappy you will still see some cream protecting the skin. Most creams have vanished into the diaper by this time. ...FULL ANSWER
  2. Her first year has been full of diaper rash challenges. 80% of the time we are at some form of a redness stage. All it takes is one day of multiple dirty diapers and that causes the skin to get puffed up and then the skin breaks open and we have open sores. Right now I have nothing that works on the redness stage and that is what leads to the open sores I am interested in your Diaper Rash Cream but am needing some further information from you.

    The reason you are having such problems is the urea in the urine combined with faeces in a dirty nappy produces ammonia causing a burn to the skin. Frequent dirty nappies cause the skin to be damaged faster than the body can repair it as you have seen.

    Our Nappy rash cream is Ph balanced to neutralise this ammonia so it can't burn the skin.

    The other problem with treating nappy rash is most commercial creams are not water proof enough to stay on the skin. They just wash off after a nappy change, leaving the skin exposed. For maximum water resistance our cream has a very high level of pure water free wool fat (a very pure form of lanolin) it also contains a higher level of zinc oxide than in most diaper rash creams so the cream is very thick and sticks to the skin protecting it.

    Some children have a lactose intolerance which shows as runny yellow motions with a peculiar sweetish smell. In this case use a lactose free formula or lactose free soy milk.

Hi,

We certainly are a Pharmacy and we specialize in compounding preparations that usually work better than any commercial product. That is why we only have a few products. Desitin is an effective product. You must use a highly absorbent disposable nappy with any diaper rash cream.

If your daughter is having frequent bowel actions the bacteria in the bowel action plus the urea in the urine combine to form ammonia over time which is why her rash is probably worst in the morning. Our product has a much more water resistant formula than Desitin so when you change the nappy you will still see some cream protecting the skin. Most creams have vanished into the nappy by this time.

Broccoli seems to aggravate nappy rash so if she is on solids avoid broccoli until she is better. It is fine when the rash has cleared. Our cream needs to be applied thickly. If you can see the skin put more on. You are using the cream as a barrier to allow the damaged skin to regenerate. You will see improvement within about 2-3 DAYS !

If she has lactose intolerance which shows up as 4-6 loose, volumes, yellow strange smelling motions then it will take longer to clear up the nappy rash.. In that case use a lactose free formula until the problem has cleared, If she is breast fed with solids being introduced then just use breast milk for a day or so. Lactose intolerance can just be due to a minor virus and take 2-3 days to clear up. Once her motions have become normal our nappy rash cream will clear the problem in 2-3 days.

If the skin is red raw then any cream may sting a little on application. In this case apply the cream to the nappy thickly then just put the nappy on in on quick movement to save stress as any stinging is momentary on raw skin. I think you will find the Nappy Rash cream possibly the best product available but I guess you would expect me to say that. Of course, we back that up with our 100% money back guarantee because we really want people to know they are getting a product that is good.

Hope this helps you and your daughter.
Kind Regards,

QUESTION:

Subject: Comments/Questions about Nappy Rash Cream

To whom it may concern, I am a desperate mother of a beautiful daughter that just turned one year old last week. Her first year has been full of diaper rash challenges. 80% of the time we are at some form of a redness stage. All it takes is one day of multiple dirty diapers and that causes the skin to get puffed up and then the skin breaks open and we have open sores.

This battle started back when she was 1-2 months old. My daughter came home from the hospital with the start of a rash. It took a whole month of going to the pediatrician to get a prescription that worked on open sores. We have gone through the battle of diaper rashes that have led to open sores off and on her entire life. Right now I have nothing that works on the redness stage and that is what leads to the open sores, which I have something that works but I don't want to get to that point.

I have tried everything OTC that is available to me in my area and have gone to a disappointing dermatologist appointment that led to a brief relief with cortizone treatment but now we are back to the redness stage and are getting help from our pediatrician and are using BAZA cream to see if that will work. I am only on the second day of using it and am giving my usual one week trial period. I am interested in your Rash Cream but am needing some further information from you.

Can I please have a list of some of the ingredients that are in your cream? Can you also give me any other information about it? Thank you for your help.

Hi ,

Our Nappy Rash cream is the first product I ever made! It worked so well it encouraged me to develop our other products. The reason you are having such problems is the urea in the urine combined with faeces in a dirty nappy produces ammonia causing a burn to the skin. Frequent dirty nappies cause the skin to be damaged faster than the body can repair it as you have seen.

Our Nappy rash cream is Ph balanced to neutralise this ammonia so it can't burn the skin. ( the night time nappy is usually the problem one, apply extra thickly at night. It is a good idea to apply thickly enough so you cant see the skin. As the cream is thick and whitish this is not a huge amount.)

The other problem with treating nappy rash is most creams are not water proof enough to stay on the skin. Most times you apply the cream and when you change the nappy most of the cream has washed off the skin leaving it exposed. For maximum water resistance our cream has a very high level of pure water free wool fat (a very pure form of lanolin) it also contains a higher level of zinc oxide than in most diaper rash creams so the cream is very thick and sticks to the skin protecting it.

At each nappy change you will still find plenty of cream still protecting the skin. We also include a small quantity of natural camphor for it's cooling and soothing effects plus the herbal balsams of storax, benzoin and aloe for their healing qualities.

Some foods cause children to have frequent loose motions, broccoli in particular has a high level of natural salicylate which will irritate the skin of a child with nappy rash. Avoiding acidic foods like tomatoes and oranges while the child has nappy rash helps a lot.

Some children have a lactose intolerance which shows as runny yellow motions with a peculiar sweetish smell. In this case use a lactose free formula or lactose free soy milk.

Antibiotics can sometimes upset the natural bacteria in the body so giving her some yoghurt (flavoured is fine) containing lactobacillus and bifidobacteria cultures each day may help. Most yoghurts in the stores have these beneficial bacteria in them, just read the fine print carefully!

I am sure you will find the above suggestions and our Nappy Rash cream amazingly effective and we back it up with our 100% money back guarantee. Having tried so many products by now you must be wondering if anything can help. Our nappy rash cream will certainly do the job.

Please email me back if anything above needs clarifying. The usual treatment doctors prescribe for nappy rash is an anti-fungal and cortisone creams. These just treat the symptoms not the cause as I suspect you are finding. Hope this helps,


Kind Regards,
David Hosking.
