I have been a fan of Caladryl since I was a child. The sweet-smelling lotion was a part of my growing up because I very often broke into hives. My mom never traveled without the flagship Caladryl lotion because I broke out in hives regularly. The soothing effect that Caladryl has is kind of proven, in my household. So here is the Caladryl Diaper Rash Cream Review
Caladryl Diaper Rash Cream Review
Now, coming to the Caladryl diaper rash cream, I am one of the few lucky moms because despite having very sensitive skin, my son has not had many incidences of diaper rashes. But recently, we had to step out a lot – 4-5 times in a day and my son developed rashes on the sixth day. Aloe vera gel to the rescue and he soon started feeling better.
I was wondering if there was a wonder cream that would prevent rashes than having to cure it later. It is beneficial to use Caladryl Diaper Rash cream to avoid diaper rash than apply it on a rash. This is recommended to every mom: if you are going to use the diaper on your baby for longer hours, then a thick cream like Caladryl diaper rash cream will leave a soothing feeling for the baby.
My son is now 21 months old now and we hardly use a diaper on him. But there are times when he is in a diaper for a larger part of the day. Now let’s look at how this works.
The cream has a nice smell, true to its brand name, has a thick texture, so this needs a nice application on your baby’s bottoms. Once you apply, it will leave a blue-purple kind of tint, don’t worry about that.
I have used this twice. Now mind you, I don’t keep my baby in diapers more than 2-3 hours. So if you are looking for a longer time, then I am not too sure how much this cream would help. But it does form a protective layer as it claims. It moisturizes and hydrates the skin.
This is definitely a boon and Hello Amma recommends this and rates it at 4.7/5
