How to Use

When to Use

Apply ointment liberally as often as necessary, with each diaper change, especially at bedtime or anytime when exposure to wet diapers may be prolonged.

To prevent diaper rash: You may not always be able to protect your baby from diaper rash, but there are steps you can take that can help significantly reduce the occurrence.

To treat diaper rash: Three important steps can help bring diaper rash under control—gentle cleansing, ensuring the skin is dry, and protecting the skin from further irritation by applying a thick layer of DESITIN® Multi-Purpose Ointment at each diaper change to soothe and protect your baby's irritated skin.
