I hate diaper rash. I really, truly hate it. My first two kids had severe diaper rash that was caused by foods that they were allergic to or had a sensitivity too. Once I figured that out I would stop feeding them those foods but before I linked the two we had some really terrible diaper rash. My sons was so bad that his bum would bleed. Not fun at all. For either of us. I bet we were both in tears after a few diaper changes because he was in so much pain and I couldn’t stand seeing him that way. It was seriously so sad! 🙁 I have gotten smarter on my third child so we haven’t had to deal with the severe diaper rash. (It also helps that she doesn’t have any allergies!) But when I got the chance to try TriDerma’s Severe Diaper Rash Cream I jumped all over it! I know all too well that the diaper rash cream from our local store just doesn’t do the trick for those really nasty diaper rash’s.

So after trying out both products here are my thoughts on them
Severe Diaper Rash – I used it on my baby when she had some pretty bad diaper rash and I actually wasn’t overly impressed with it. I didn’t feel like it worked that great or worked that quickly to relieve her little bum. One thing I did notice with it though was it didn’t seem to sting her when I applied it and usually other creams make her cry when I use them so that was really nice. I have continued to use it and it is great for an everyday use. I really like the texture and consistency of it. It is not greasy and it cleans up very nicely. I also like that it does not contain any fragrance or parabens. Products that contain those just seem to irritate even more. So overall, I liked it as a basic diaper cream but I didn’t feel like it worked better for a severe diaper cream.
Eczema Fast Healing – My son has had pretty bad eczema in the past so every time I see a flare up I have to put something on it immediately so he doesn’t scratch at it and make it worse. A couple weeks ago he started getting a rash behind his knees so I was really excited to use the Eczema Fast Healing. After his bath I put it on his legs to help relieve the itching. When he woke up the next morning he didn’t have any rash on his legs and he hadn’t scratched it at all that night! It was amazing! He usually itches and scratches in his sleep so he doesn’t even know he is doing it. But this cream was awesome! It worked fast and it was great! Another great thing that I like about this is that it is safe for the face and body. Some of his prescription creams are so strong they can’t be applied to his face but this stuff is gentle and effective. I like knowing that it is safe to use on him but it also works! I will definitely be keeping a supply of this in our closet!
