Diaper Rash

Diaper rash is a common problem for babies and toddlers. It is characterized by a red, shiny rash on the skin underneath the diaper. It’s typically caused by friction, when the wet diaper rubs against the baby’s skin, or irritation from feces, urine or personal cleaning products. Diaper rash can also be caused by fungal or yeast infections, or allergies to detergents, soaps or lotions. Sometimes the skin will erupt in an oily, yellowish rash. This is called seborrhea, and it can also show up on other areas of the body.

Helpful Tips for Treating Diaper Rash

  • Change diapers promptly to keep the skin dry
  • Avoid scrubbing irritated skin; clean gently with cool water
  • When possible, let the diaper rash area air dry before putting on a new diaper
  • Pay attention to foods that may be contributing to the problem
  • Use fragrance-free, natural soaps and detergents
