We’re so glad you asked! Change your baby’s diaper, cleanse the area and allow it to dry. Then apply the product liberally as often as necessary. We recommend using it with each diaper change, especially at bedtime or when exposure to wet diapers is prolonged. Keep in mind that the ointment may stain clothing.
Because our product contains zinc oxide and white petrolatum, it is a very effective skin protectant and moisture barrier. The Peruvian Balsam included in the formula is a powerful healing agent.
Our formula not only promotes healing but serves as a skin protectant and moisture barrier. This aids in the prevention and treatment of various types of skin irritation by keeping the affected area dry, clean and protected.
In addition to relieving diaper rash in babies and aging adults, our product soothes chafing, chapping and heat rash. Considering that the formula originated along the Carolina coastline, it’s no surprise that Flanders Buttocks Ointment also combats the “beach rash” that’s often a result of days spent in the sand and sea.
Our product is intended for external use only and should not be used to treat deep or puncture wounds, infections or lacerations.
No, simply ask your pharmacist for a tube! And remember, if the condition worsens or does not improve within 7 days, stop use and consult your doctor.
