Specific Precautions and Warnings for Triple Paste
Warnings and precautions to be aware of prior to using Triple Paste include the following:
- Be sure to keep Triple Paste out of the reach of children (which can actually be a little tricky, since the ointment is typically kept near the diaper changing area). It could be potentially dangerous if a child ingests Triple Paste (see Triple Paste Overdose for more information).
- Do not get this product in the eyes.
- Triple Paste is not a substitute for frequent diaper changing and gentle cleansing of the skin. The ointment is to be used along with the usual recommendations for caring for a diaper rash.
- If the diaper rash does not improve within seven days of use, stop using Triple Paste and contact your child's healthcare provider. Your child may need a different type of diaper rash treatment.
