Is Aquaphor safe? Does it have petroleum?

Will it cause any absorbency issues? says it has petrolatum---I've heard petroleum products off gas?
Anyone know if this is true?
Would I need to use a liner with Aquaphor?
Does it make an already-bad rash go away quickly?
Would you apply it at every diaper change as a preventive measure?

I don't know about the off gassing, it does contain petroleum though. I use it for my daughters labial adhesion and so far have had no build up/ repelling issues. We only use natural fabrics though as she is allergic to all synthetics.

i wouldnt use it if i were you. it does have the petroleum in it which is can clog little pores easily. the doctors recommended it to me when my son was very little due to his eczema and i did discover that it took the rash away but it always came back and plus his little skin wsnt able to breath properly so it came back worse then previous. (he had eczema all over his little body) i would look for something more natural ( i have yet to find something for my son) if i were you! best of luck
