We just bought a brand new tube of Max strength and squeezed out to use - big air bubble came out! Now it's already half empty after the first use. VERY UNHAPPY! Lot #2398LZ/1

Compare with Walgreen's 40% Zinc Oxide Diaper Rash Paste

Review Text: 
The ingredients are the same, except Walgreen's uses cornstarch instead of talc - important difference! That's why I gave 4 stars instead of 5, good product, but should switch to cornstarch!

My daughter had a really bad rash and I bought some of this and later in the morning it was already cleared up so much better that redness was gone and was pink now I recommend this product to all babies. If it wasn’t for Desitin my daughter would still be in pain and crying . Make sure to give your baby a bath and then let them air dry and then apply the desitin on there rash!!!

Oily mess; not the same ingredients it used to be!

Just ran out of the 16 oz. tub I bought YEARS ago. Finally bought a new 16 oz. tub for my newest addition, and it's a runny, oily mess. I compared ingredients and realized Desitin changed it. Well they should have called it some other name and still kept the old stuff because the new doesn't compare to the old. We got rid of it and switched to another brand. It was a waste of money! And I feel bad because I've recommended the product to so many people without realizing it had been changed!

Not what it used to be...

Review Text: 
With my first child, I LOVED the 16 oz Max strength desitin. It worked wonders very quickly and was nice and thick. Now (7 years later), with child number 2, I've looked everywhere for the 16 oz tub and realized they don't make it anymore so I settled and bought the small 4 oz. VERY liquidy compared to the old stuff. I still have an old 16 oz tub left (although its expired) and compared the two. The old one is MUCH better. Now, it seems you are paying A LOT more per ounce and getting a lesser quality, more watery product. Looks like a business move on Desitin's part to make more money for less product and quality. I guess I'll take my business to a different brand. I wouldn't recommend this product anymore (Back in the day, I SWORE by it).

Work in a NICU at a major pediatric hospital system. This new Desitin is watery and not mixed together. When you go to use it, it is seriously the texture of goose poop. water water water chunks chunks chunks water water water.

Bring back 16oz containers!

Review Questions: 
Age: 25 to 34 years old
Review Text: 
My son was born with genetic skin condition 2years ago and the only cream that we were buying Desitin Max Strength 16oz! He still would use the 16oz tub in 2 weeks, but they are no longer available. 4oz tube is inconvenient and lasts a couple days. As mom with special needs child I would love to have the big container back, otherwise will be looking for another brand.
