In this blog post, we will discuss everything you need to know about diaper rash: what causes it, how to prevent it, and how to manage it if it does occur.

Diaper rash is a common skin irritation that most parents will deal with at some point. It’s usually characterised by red, inflamed skin in the diaper area, and can cause a great deal of discomfort for your child. There are many different things that can cause diaper rash, including wetness, chafing, and contact with irritants like faeces or urine. Diaper rash can also be caused by allergies or sensitivities to certain diaper materials, contact with harsh ingredients in soap or laundry detergent, and even certain medical conditions.

How to Prevent Diaper Rash

There are a few things you can do to prevent diaper rash including the following tips.

- Change your baby’s diaper often, at least every two hours or more frequently if they are prone to diaper rash.

- Keep your baby’s bottom clean and dry. Before putting on a new diaper, use a mild, unscented soap to clean your baby’s bottom and then pat their skin dry.

- Allow some air time for your baby’s bottom. Let your baby go without a diaper for short periods of time throughout the day.

- If you use cloth diapers, make sure they are clean and free of irritants. Wash them in a mild detergent and rinse well. Consider using a liner to create a barrier between your baby’s skin and the diaper.

 

How to Treat Diaper Rash

If your child does get diaper rash, fortunately, there are also many ways to treat diaper rash!

- Apply a barrier cream or ointment like petroleum jelly or zinc oxide to your baby’s bottom after each diaper change.

- Give your little one a warm bath with a mild, unscented soap. Pat their skin dry afterwards and apply a barrier cream or ointment. To see bath soaps that you can find at an Apollo Pharmacy visit: https://www.apollopharmacy.in/shop-by-category/bath-gel

- If the rash is severe, talk to your doctor about other treatment options like medicated creams or oral antibiotics.

One of the best ways to avoid diaper rash is to make sure that you change your child’s diaper often, especially if it is wet or soiled.
