Ackley, IA Doctor Markets 'Hiney Healer' (Now Barrier Balm)
Dr. Don Boldt's miracle cream now sold over the counter!
By LaDona Roelfs, Editor, ACKLEY.
If you have raised kids, you are probably aware of how terrible a bad case of diaper rash can be. Nobody sleeps and everybody in the family suffers as a result fo one poor baby with a sore "hiney."
But for more than 30 years, if you were fortunate enough to be a patient at the Ackley Medical Center, particularly with Dr. Don Boldt, you may have received a prescription for a special salve. This "miracle" salve was a lifesaver for parents of a fussy baby.
Dr. Boldt started practice in the Ackley Medical Center 35 years ago after completing a family practice residency at Broadlawns Hospital in Des Moines.
"The cream actually was a formula out of a book from when I was training, but no one else seems to remember it!" Boldt said, with a laugh. "I have been prescribing it ever since I came here, of course with some modifications that we have learned over the years. It still seems to work better than anything else I have found"
Then one day not quite a year ago , Boldt received a visit from Tom Swegle from MedCara Pharmacies asking if he would be interested in marketing his special cream through them.
Healing Bottoms of All Ages
"It's a good cream and you couldn't get it commercially before this," Boldt said. [...]
Ackley NuCara pharmacist Donna Roberts, said the Ackley doctors use it as well as some of the Iowa Falls doctors as they get familiar with it from use at the hospital.
"It is a great product for rashes and irritations, a nice formula, she [Roberts] said. "It moisturizes the skin and washes off. Most medications like this are sticky and you have to rub to get it off. This is as easy to get off as it is to get on, but still has the skin protection."
Roberts added that the cream is also being used in the Ackley and other care facilities where the pharmacy does business, saying it protects the skin from breakdown.
"We have gotten calls from as far away as California for use as a moisturizing cream. It is a good barrier yet washes off easily." -Dr. Don Boldt, Creator of the Original Barrier Balm, Hiney Healer
