This German-made product has successfully treated diaper rashes, sunburns, scalds, dermatitis and the relief of itching due to eczema for decades. Also used to relieve heat and perspiration rashes.
This worked well on some of my baby's diaper rash, however the thickness of it makes application more difficult. It is so thick that if there are any weepy spots on the rash, it won't stick; it only sticks to the unaffected skin. I switched to sudocrem which is more creamy and spreadable and works well. I'll definitely keep using this, but only in certain cases. It wasn't as perfumy as the sudocrem though, which I definitely appreciate
I tried this with my first, 14 years ago, and it worked really well, but he never had much diaper rash. I tried a different brand I was given as a gift with our current foster child, who had diaper rash from the beginning, possibly exacerbated by being formula-fed. When I switched to the good, old-fashioned Penaten, it cleared right up. We have to use it every day, but I will happily do that until he's toilet trained if it means I never have to see that horrible, red, broken skin on that cutie's bum!
The Cadillac of medicated barrier creams. Sticks like glue and gets the job done. Don't use with cloth diapers or it won't wash out.
I've been using this cream on my baby girl's bum since she was born (3 months now) and she's never had any signs of diaper rash. It has no scent and lasts for a long time. It is sticky but it washes off pretty easily.
I had a great success treating my German Shepherd for cheilitis (chapped lips). It was easy to apply and unlike other products does not have any appealing taste so my dog did not lick it off.
I was given this product by a doctor in Canada, and have continued to order it from the U.S. It provides much relief from itching and burning.
Quickly gets rid of my babies diaper rash. I tried two different kinds before this that were organic all natural products. They both made my babies diaper rash worse. I think it was the lavender oil that they both contained.
Like my Mother said, sometimes the old fashioned remedy is the best.
great cream for diaper rash or even as a protective cream.We use it often.
I find it to be a great treatment for hangnails and other small cuts and abrasions. First I wash and rinse clean the wound with soap and hot water and then apply Penaten. It soothes and seals out substances that cause irritation.
I find it is great for diaper rashes. Yes, it's a thick and sticky but it does go on smooth enough! You want thick for a diaper rash cream--lots of protection. We found it worked great.
Best stuff for diaper rash. Yes it is sticky and that's why it protects the skin so well. I take a cotton swap and apply a big "blopp" on the cleaned area. If you clean with toilet paper don't try to wipe off all the cream. If you clean wash gently with warm water and apply again.
I agree with hm, the daily clean one is better to use everyday after changes. Using baby powder is good also but make sure when you use wipes to dry it off before putting the powder on.
sticky sticky sticky....a real mess.
doesn't clear up the rash very quickly which means lots of messy applications.
i've tried it on burns/'scalds' too and it made it hurt worse.
