What Is A Diaper Rash?

A diaper rash is a mild form of skin irritation associated with diaper-wearing. It results in reddish patches limited to the diaper area and is common among babies and infants, whether they wear diapers or cloth nappies. Symptoms of a diaper rash are usually mild and should clear up by practicing good hygiene.

How To Deal With A Diaper Rash?

Here’s a lowdown on everything that you as a parent can watch out for and accordingly tackle this unfortunate problem of diaper rashes.

Symptoms to look out for...

The first sign of a diaper rash is red patchy skin on and around the genitalia and buttocks. This may erupt into small bumps if not treated promptly.

What causes it?

Diaper rashes happen for a variety of reasons. The most common being prolonged wearing of a wet and soiled diaper. A diaper rash arises due to moisture and bacteria that harbour within the diaper and on the skin. Wet skin breaks down easily and is prone to chafing as well as yeast and bacterial infections. Skin irritation can also occur when a diaper is worn too tightly, causing the elastic bands to cut into the skin of your baby.

Who is more prone?

Babies who are on antibiotics may suffer from a bout of diarrhea which will increase the chances of contracting diaper rash. Some babies may also be more sensitive to particular brands of diaper, laundry detergent, and wet wipes that you use.
