Diapers are definetely a boon to us, and diaper rashes are inevitable. Especially if the diapers are not changed frequently or incase of an upset tummy.
My child too has had an upset tummy and diarrhea in his first two years. This is more because of his habit of putting toys in his mouth. So what follows is diaper rash, itching, redness etc. The doctor had suggested us to use Abzorb dusting powder and it really did wonders. The redness and itching reduced quickly and the rash also went away in course of time. Eversince, we always have a stock of this at home.
Honestly this was the only time my child had a diaper rash. I am not sure if it is because of the use of Abzorb or just my extra love and care for him ;)
Now even after his diaper days are over , I make sure to use this on my son regularly after his bath for areas more prone to sweat.
I also had to use Abzorb once during a short summer vacation. My skin, especially on the hands is extremely sensitive to the sun and tends to break into a rash if I havent applied enough sunscreen. And beacuse of staying outdoors for long, rashes had developed on my hands and neck. Since I always had an Abzorb handy for my son, I tried that and yes it worked. The itching reduced in a few hours and the rashes also dried out and disappeared in about 2-3 days.
So now there is always one in my handbag and one in the cupboard.
Remember that this is an Antifungal and Antibacterial powder and is for EXTERNAL USE ONLY.
Also ensure that you talk to your doctor once before using it on your baby.
