Bestamine (sp?) used at nursery: what does DD mean?

When I picked DD (22 mnths) up from nursery today she had a slightly sticky gel on her cheek. She kept telling me that her key worker had put 'bestamine' (sp?) on her cheek and bottom. Does anyone have any idea what she might mean by it? Unfortunately we'd left nursery by the time I noticed it. Will ask tomorrow but want to work out what it is so I can decide whether to be cross!

She did have a bit of dry skin on the cheek where they had put it (but no reason to put anything on bottom) but I'm not thrilled about them choosing to put something on it without asking us.

If anyone can work out what she means I'd be really grateful.

Betadine - if it was a reddish colour.

Bepanthen? or as Greensleeves - vaseline.

Ah vaseline - that's almost certainly right, we've asked them to use that occasionally in the past. Thank you all. I was trying to think of things starting with B. I was imagining some strange anti-histamine from the name. Not at all cross about vaseline!

Thanks all!
