    There's going to be a lot of differing opinions on this I'm guessing, so here's mine.

    Been using Desitin "Maximum Strength" Original Paste for a good while now.
    It's had, and continues to have, a decent record with me so far. Keeps the rashes at bay most of the time, good enough for me :P

    Sure there's better stuff out there, like the mystical "Triple Cream"(not paste) if you can get it.
    But I know I can head a block down the road and get a tub or tube of the Desitin/A+D paste if I need at basically every store near me.

    IMO
    Desitin works good enough for me, might work for you too. If A+D offers something else I'm missing like a different scent or more/less zinc then whatever floats your boat.
    It's whatever your preferred brand or scent is and there's plenty out to try. Might want to give the choices you can easily access a try first like A+D or Desitin since they're at basically any store like Walmart, Kmart, Walgreen's, Etc.

    That would be a prescription for Triple Diaper Cream. Not to be confused with the over the counter triple cream, this stuff works awesome. Way better than any over the counter stuff.

    But if you can't get that for any reason, skip any of the various ointments. These work based on providing a barrier so your skin won't get worse, but do very little to heal existing damage. You will want to get
    an actual cream that will absorb into your skin to heal it.

    A good one is Desitin Creamy (not the original Desitin, which is an ointment). Big difference.

    Me too. Make sure to get the ORIGINAL versus the "all natural" variety. It doesn't stink to high heaven like Desitin or A&D.

    I've tried a good deal many, I used Desitin for a while, and Boudreaux's butt paste for a while, but Aquaphor has overtaken them all and is part of my daily diapering routine. My rash issues have decreased considerably since I started using it.

    Are any of them less messy or easier to get off your hands than Desitin?

    We used aquafor with our kids and it seems to do the best job of clearing any kind of rash. Best part is that it doesn't stink.

    We use Butt Paste on our kid & it works well & cleans off your hands easily I think.
