General Information on Dosing With Boudreaux's Butt Paste
- Generously apply the ointment with your fingertips. Do not try to rub it in, as this action is not helpful and can be irritating.
- You may want to buy the largest size available, to make sure you do not try to "scrimp" on the ointment. Remember that it works by forming a barrier, and a thick layer is necessary to be effective.
- You do not have to completely remove the previous application of Boudreaux's Butt Paste when changing a diaper. Simply make sure the area is thoroughly (but gently) cleaned. Make sure to let the skin dry before applying Boudreaux's Butt Paste.
- Stop using Boudreaux's Butt Paste and consult your child's healthcare provider if the rash does not improve within seven days (or if it goes away but returns quickly).
- If you are unsure about anything related to your Boudreaux's Butt Paste dosing, please talk to your doctor, nurse, or pharmacist.
