Triple Paste is an over-the-counter (OTC) ointment commonly used for treating and preventing diaper rash. It contains zinc oxide, an ingredient that helps to protect the skin from irritants and may also serve as a mild astringent and a weak antiseptic. The product is meant to be applied liberally as often as necessary, usually after every diaper change.

When and How to Use Triple Paste
- This product should be applied liberally as often as necessary, both to treat and 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 do not have to completely remove the previous application of Triple 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.
- Stop using Triple 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.
