It seems to me that my kids are more prone to diaper rashes than other babies I’ve met. Seriously.
When Zadey was an infant she had diaper rashes so extreme, and so frequent, her pediatrician referred us to a dermatologist to help solve the problem. And yet, multiple visits later, we still could not determine the cause. So, we used prescription creams, a lot. Sometimes they would work, sometimes they wouldn’t.
Needless to say, it was painful for Zadey.
With my boys, though it doesn’t happen as frequent as it did for Zadey, they become extreme, quick. We’ve even gone as far as going to the ER because of a diaper rash.
Heaven help us if the store is out of Luvs diapers, because they seem to not be able to use any other brand. (The store really does run out of Luvs.)
Always anticipating the diaper rash, I have multiple creams on hand that we try each time.
- Aveno Baby
- A & D
And now… Pinxav.
How Well Does Pinxav Work?
To properly test how Pinxav would work for my boys, I waited for a rash to appear. The wait wasn’t long.
First, I treated the rash with Desitin and within 24 hours, received the same results I normally do. It was better, but not much. Diligence would be needed at keeping Desitin on him to ensure the rash did not progress. For us this means we’d go through a lot more diapers. And in the course of one diaper rash can easily half a tube or more of Desitin.
After the first 24 hours, with little improvement, we switched and used Pinxav.
At this point, you have to know that the diaper rash had so progressed to the point that Henry was crying when we attempted to wipe him clean. He’d scoot away from us, turn and crawl, or do anything he could to move away from us wiping him. It was a bad case, this time.
We applied Pinxav, and continued to use it throughout each normal diaper change.
Within the first couple of changes, we saw improvement. About half way through the 24 hour time period, he stopped crying when he was wiped. In a full 24 hours the rash was 75% better. By the 48 hour mark, the rash was gone.
In my 8 years of parenting, I have never seen a diaper rash this bad disappear so quickly!
Hands down, it is the last diaper rash cream we will use.
Other Uses for Pinxav
Pinxav (pronounced pink salve), has more uses than just clearing diaper rashes. They include:
- Preventative: Pinxav is safe and gentle enough for daily use to prevent diaper rashes.
- Active Adults: Pinxav provides protection, prevents rashes and chapped skin caused by rubbing and perspiration.
- Seniors: Pinxav provides relief and helps prevent against dry, cracked skin. Use over sun-block for extra protection from sunburn.
- Ederly: Pinxav helps provides comfort to those who are less active and will help protect areas exposed to dampness caused by possible incontinence.
- Everyday: Pinxav can also be used for everyday first aid to protect skin from minor scrapes, burns, sunburn, acne and other skin irritations.
Pinxav was developed in 1927 by Milford Harris along with a dedicated group of doctors and pharmacists, all of whom collaborated to create an effective treatment for diaper rash, a common and painful condition that affects millions of babies every year. In fact, because the sensitive skin of a newborn is no match for a wet, soiled diaper, most babies develop diaper rash at some point during infancy and beyond. The good news is that diaper rashes are rarely serious and respond readily to Pinxav.
If you have a young one at home, I highly suggest that you pick up enough to get you through quite awhile. Especially if they’re as prone to diaper rashes as my boys are! And, don’t forget about any upcoming baby showers. Pinxav would perfect in a shower gift basket.
