We raised 3 kids in the 90s and have always sworn by Desitin as the unquestionably best diaper ointment. Our babies never had diaper rash for very long, if at all. But now we have a grandson, and he screams when we put Desitin on! So my wife and I checked, and it turns out Desitin changed the formula! It used to contain cod liver oil, which smelled fishy of course, but the old Desitin was unbeatable. They may have changed other ingredients as well. This new Desitin is horrible. It doesn't adhere to the skin or provide a barrier to wetness like the old one. Our grandson hates it. He won't let us come near him with it. Do some research; There are better products out there.
No, I would not recommend this product
