Superb Skin Disorder Relief found in Common Diaper Rash Ointment


"Accidental" discoveries are made each day. Common substances can sometimes be utilized for other purposes in which they were initially intended. One of these common substances, also known as the widely-used diaper rash ointment, (specifically) -- Dr. Sheffield's Diaper Rash ointment, a mostly natural compound composed of zinc oxide and vitamins A and D, standardly used for diaper rash, minor skin irritations and chafed skin.

In the past, I had used this ointment for specified purposes, and also, for hot-spots on my Chinese Sharpeis. Chinese Sharpeis are prone to skin disorders that cause major irritation to the skin. After trying several veteranarian medications, cortizone sprays and other topical solutions, I wanted to try something that wasn't harsh on my animals' hide and that would work proficiently without common side effects of most steroidal antidotes. After seeing what Dr. Sheffield's Diaper rash ointment could do for a infant's bottom, I figured it was worth a shot. To my amazement, the skin irritations on my animals began to dissipate with the use of this ointment.

Now, beside being an antidotal ointment for common skin irritations on animals and humans alike, I inadvertantly discovered two new reasons to use Dr. Sheffield's Diaper Rash Ointment.

Because I am fair complected (I have blond hair and blue eyes.), I have been prone to two, major skin disorders. One being that I burn easily and the second -- I am susceptible to acne breakouts due to my combination skin. Through the years, I had used every marketable, over-the-counter and prescription creams and ointments for both problems. From Aloe to hormone pills -- all to no avail.

Living in the deep South can take its toll on one's physical appearance due to long, hot summers with high UV counts. It was one summer, in particular, that I suffered a horrendous sunburn. The sunburn was so bad that the pain was unbearable. Other than taking ibuprofen for pain, I didn't know what to do about the ruddy chaffing and near-blistering skin. Aloe helped, but it still didn't quite relieve the aching, burning skin. Searching my bathroom cabinets, I came across Dr. Sheffield's Diaper Rash Ointment. On a hunch, I retrieved the compound and applied some to my skin. For the first time in years, I could literally feel the "..Ahhh..." in sunburn relief. Naturally, from that day on, I began using this ointment for sunburns -- not only for myself, but for other members of my family as well.

I never connected Dr. Sheffield's Diaper Rash Ointment to acne treatment, but over the years, I would soon discover a miracle cure. Over two decades, I had suffered from acne breakouts and had attempted every skincare product on the market for acne. I tried products that contained collagen and more expensive lotions, ointments and creams that were derived from retinol-A. Although retinol-A did work very well for acne, there were two downsides. One problem with the retinol-A was that it caused redness and inflammation of the skin after proloned usage, and my personal objection to retinol-A was its high cost. Eventually, I stopped using these products because they were inefficient -- either due to cost or their ineffectiveness to "cure" or aid my skin condition.

Other than multiple face washing throughout each day, I didn't know what else to try to help my skin disorder. Laying on the bathroom sink's edge, was a tube of Dr. Sheffield's Diaper Rash Ointment. I knew it worked for sunburns, diaper rash and dog skin disorders, so I assumed it was worth the attempt. After thoroughly washing my skin, I squeezed a minute amount on the tip of my index finger and smoothed the compound over affected areas of my face. Later, that same evening, there was a noticeable difference in my skin. Not only were the affected areas drying up, but the skin surrounding the area felt satiny and not arid at all. The most dramatic effect was that the acne was diminishing and the skin was actually healing over the next couple of days. Viola! I had accidentally found a wonderful, cost-efficient treatment for acne and dry skin -- both, at the same time!
