Approximately two-thirds of infants experience diaper rash (dermatitis). Customized diaper rash preparations -ointments, powders, or creams- can be compounded to treat each child’s specific symptoms, using ingredients which will protect the skin from additional irritation, soothe and encourage healing, and prevent secondary infections. Skin protectants (zinc oxide, petrolatum) provide a physical barrier against external irritants such as urine or gastrointestinal enzymes in stool. Antifungal creams can be used when a yeast (Candida) infection is suspected.

We can also compound a bile acid sequestrant, such as cholestyramine ointment, to prevent skin irritation, which is especially helpful for ostomy patients.
