This product was a life saver. You put a layer on the clean bottom every nappy change for 1-2 days and it will take care of every rash.
This stuff is amazing.. We use it for EVERYTHING at home, from dry lips, to chafing, and even on sores and abrasions. It has never steered me wrong. I know friends who have used it on their bubs nappy rash and they too swear by it. I won't be changing for anything :D
This stuff is magic. It works wonders on almost everything you throw at it. Grazes, cold sores, dry skin, insect bites etc etc I do think it is slightly expensive but it is so worth it. It works ok for nappy rash but for severe I could suggest other better alternatives. It is definately a brilliant 'all-rounder" though and I firmly believe there should be a jar of this in every home.
I use Lucas Pawpaw ointment as a lip balm. Works wonders for my very sensitive lips. It has a very nice 'papaya' scent. This is the only product that has touched my son's bum and to this day his nappy area is rash free.
I use pawpaw ointment on everything and it works a treat. Since I have been using PawPaw ointment on DD's bum 12 weeks ago we have not experienced any more nappy rash. pawpaw ointment has never let me down :)
I am a long time user of paw paw ointment even before I had my DS. It's great for everything from bites to dry lips.
I have used it on DS not only for nappy rash but for dribble rash and it has worked really well and very quickly.
It's all natural so no worries about putting it on bubs delicate skin. A tub is not very expensive and lasts for ages.
I have found this product to be a great all round. Not only do I use it on my sons nappy rash (which clears up overnight), I also use it on any bumps and rashes that appear on his skin. I also use it for any bites and rashes that appear on my own skin. I love that this ointment is so easily available, cheap and not full of chemicals.
I keep one of the small tubes in my hand bag at all times. It works great for rashes, but also for mosquito bites, and dry skin. It's very soothing, and works very quickly.
It's practically a miracle cream!
I loved this and it was asll I would put near bub's bum, until I dicsovered it contains petrochemicals. Probably not a huge deal (I use disposable nappies, after all!) but it was enough to make me change to a more organic paw paw ointment.
Totally does the trick though :)
I used this on my 3 day old baby on really bad nappy rash as I had no nappy rash cream around. It gave him instant relief (I could move his leg without him hurting) and the rash was gone completely overnight, all from one application. I have used other very expensive nappy rash creams on my other kids but they always took multiple applications and longer time to heal.
I also used this for baby's dry skin (that they get when they are newborns), coldsores as well for my psoriasis and dry lips. This is a great multi-purpose item that is very effective.
i have tried all the free samples I got, and just keep coming back to pawpaw cream. As soon as bub has a slightly red bottom, I pop some of this on and the redness is usually gone by the next nappy change. I've also been using it preventatively at night when putting on the nappy, as bub is going about 10 hours without being changed, and am hardly seeing any redness during the day at all. I'll keep using this for him and for me - I used to get nasty cracks in the corners of my mouth but have not had it once since using this as lip balm.
The only thing I'd recommend is getting a pot for bub and a tube for yourself, not two tubes like I have. Makes it much less likely that the 'bum' tube will be used on the lips! :)
