Balmex Drug Interactions
It is unlikely for drug interactions to occur with Balmex® products (as is the case with most diaper rash treatments). Nonetheless, it is a good idea to mention Balmex when your child's healthcare provider asks about any measures you have taken to treat diaper rash. Knowing what has worked (and what has not) will help your healthcare provider know how to best treat a severe diaper rash.
If your healthcare provider recommends that you use a different product (perhaps even a prescription medication), be sure to ask if you should continue to use Balmex and if you should apply both products at the same time. In general, it is usually unnecessary to apply two products, and Balmex could potentially reduce the effectiveness of the other medications (particularly if it is applied first, since it works as a barrier).
