When and How to Use It

General considerations for when and how to use this product include the following:
  • This product should be applied liberally as often as necessary, both to treat and to prevent diaper rash.
  • Liberally 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 the ointment.
  • This product will stain fabrics.
  • 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).
