Top 8 nappy rash creams

top 8 nappy rash creamsIf you’re like me you’ve got quite a stash of nappy rash creams and lotions. And if you’re REALLY like me they’ll be all trial packs and sample sachets (such a cheapskate!)

At least I’ve been able to figure out what works and what doesn’t …

The other way to find a product that works is to read reviews by Bub Hub members.

Here is a list of the Top 8 nappy rash creams/lotions reviewed by Bub Hub members …

1. Booty Balm (Myrtle & Tuppence)

Booty Balm“Definitely a must have in all nappy bags” – Going Troppo

“This is the best nappy rash treatment by far. I cannot sing the praises enough about this company’s range.” – Molly Hampson 

 2. Desitin Nappy Rash Ointment (Pfizer)

Desitin Nappy Rash“It also lasts all night, creating a barrier as well as healing and soothing the rash. Now I reach for it straight away if he’s starting to get a rash.” – Sevven

“Easy to use, extremely effective, you can find it everywhere and its cheap. Works in hours soothing the skin and baby is happy again!” – fernanda

3. Papaw Ointment (Lucas)

Paw Paw Ointment“It’s perfectly natural and fixes up so many problems! I love this stuff, have been using it for over 10 years! – LibbyAnne

4. Daktozin (Daktarin)

Daktozin“I can’t rave enough about this stuff! Cleared up a particularly bad case of nappy rash in a matter of days. My 2yo was more comfy and happy, so I was too!” – guest reviewer

“I’ve tried so many other products but this one blew me away with how fast it was in making my son feel better!” – Saint685

5. Bepanthen Antiseptic Cream (Roche)

Bepanthan“I love the antiseptic part of this cream – i use it on minor cuts, stratches etc and it is also great on patches of dry skin.” – MothersMilk

“This IS the Magic cream of ALL creams!!! You will not be disappointed.” – Sunflower5

“I would highly recommend this to be used by anyone wanting a great nappy rash cream. It smells great too, a nice bonus.” – KnockKnockPenny

  1. Hi
    Thanks for referring these quality nappy rash cream. I will of course the post with my wife. She may impressed with these quality nappy rash cream and will of course use for our 1 and half years baby. But you are requested to advice that are these suitable for nappy covered by plastic pants?

    Thanks for this nice post.

    • Hi Robinson. Thanks for your question. If your baby wears cloth nappies usually nappy rash creams are not recommended as they create an oily barrier which stops the nappy being absorbent. It is best to check with the company that makes the specific nappies you’re using. Thanks.

  2. We would be lost without our Grovia Magic Sticks! All natural ingredients in a wax like form, goes on like roll on deodorant. Leaves a protective layer between baby’s skin and the nappy. No more sticky hands or cold sprays and it smells lovely!

  3. Yes Daktozin saved my little ones tush from the worst nappy rash….we tried everything even prescribed ointment from the Dr and nothing worked like Daktozin. Two days and it was all clear. I have also ordered triple paste from the US as I have heard it is incredible.
